Canon SX20 IS and SX120 IS

As part of its camera launches, Canon today released two cameras in its PowerShot SX series of very long-range compact cameras. Leading these, the SX20 IS replaces the SX10 IS and steps up the resolution to 12.1 megapixels while adding a 720p movie capture mode. Appropriately, it has HDMI output to preview raw clips at full resolution. A 20X stabilized lens and a swivel-out LCD are carried over from the earlier design. It takes AA batteries for power and will be ready in September for $400.

The SX120 IS parallels its premium counterpart by replacing the SX110 IS. Upgrades are less ambitious and include a resolution increase to 10 megapixels while preserving the 10X stabilized lens and most other features. As with the SX20 IS, the SX120 IS takes AA batteries, but its reduced capabilities help drop the price to $250 for a planned September shipping window.
