Canon has expanded the Powershot range with the introduction of the PowerShot G16 and PowerShot S120.

Both cameras feature a new star mode for astronomy shooting and a DIGIC 6 image processor with a 12.1 Megapixel 1/1.7 type high-sensitivity CMOS sensor.

AF speeds have been improved on both models, plus they offer approximately 9fps continuous shooting.

For those who want to take more control over the images they produce the G16 and S120 both offer  full manual control of important exposure settings. Multi-aspect ratio shooting and RAW support is also available.
PowerShot S120
The new Star mode, with three different pre-sets – Star Nightscape, Star Trails and Star Time-lapse movie – allows users to capture a starry sky.

Alongside the new Star mode there's Background Defocus mode which instantly creates the effect of a shallow depth of field by automatically blurring the background. HDR mode has been improved to give extra freedom to shoot handheld when capturing HDR images.

Optical image stabilization, Wi-Fi and full HD 60p movie recording with stereo sound is also available on both cameras. The cameras support GPS tagging via mobile, enabling location data to be added to shots using Canon's dedicated app for smartphones or tablets. The new Image Sync function safeguards images. Users can select and send images via Wi-Fi using Image Sync, which intelligently determines the best method of image backup then automatically synchronises them.

PowerShot G16
The PowerShot G16 features a  f/1.8-2.8 genuine Canon lens and has a 5x optical zoom, offering an f/1.8 aperture at its 28mm wide-angle, and an f/2.8 aperture at its maximum 140mm focal length.

The PowerShot S120 features an ultra-wide f/1.8, 24mm 5x optical zoom lens and a 7.5 cm (3.0") touchscreen.

The PowerShot G16 and PowerShot S120 are available in the UK & Ireland from early to mid-October 2013 with an SRP of:
  • PowerShot G16 - £529.99/€649.99
  • PowerShot S120 - £449.99/€529.99

This should now state that the camera does have Wi-Fi.
