Canon has announced a raft of new compacts and printers – and a new lens.

In terms of cameras, the PowerShot G16 features a 12.1-megapixel 1/1.7 CMOS sensor and the new DIGIC 6 image processor, offering sensitivity up to ISO 12800 and 9fps. In addition, Canon says that the AF speeds of the G16 are 41% quicker than its predecessor, the PowerShot G15. The G16 also features a f1.8-2.8, 5x optical zoom lens covering the equivalent of 28-140mm.

The PowerShot S120, meanwhile, is being described by Canon as “the world’s slimmest camera to feature a f1.8 lens”. Like the G16, it features a 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor with DIGIC 6 processor and 5x zoom but goes slightly wider, to the equivalent of 24mm.

The G16 and S120 will be available from October 2013 for a price of £529.99/€649.99 and £449.99/€529.99, respectively.

In addition, Canon has announced the PowerShot SX510 HS and PowerShot SX170 IS. The SX510 HS features a 12.1-megapixel high-sensitivity CMOS sensor (with DIGIC 4, rather than DIGIC 6, processor) and 30x optical zoom that goes as wide as 24mm. The PowerShot SX170 IS features a 16-megapixel sensor and 16x optical zoom that goes as wide as 28mm.

The SX510 HS and the SX170 IS will be available from 23 August 2013 for £289.99/€349.99 and £169.99/€199.99 respectively.
