Canon A-series and 400D

Still more camera announcements are arriving in the month preceding the Photokina show in Cologne. Canon today expanded its camera line to include three higher-end models in the A series. The A630 and A640 use 8 and 10 megapixel sensors respectively. Both feature 4X optical zoom, larger 2.5-inch LCDs, a Safety Zoom that limits digital zoom to maintain quality, and a Digital Tele-Converter that simulates a telephoto lens. At the top of the A series is the A710 IS, the first A model to feature image stabilization. It adds 6X optical zoom and a wide-angle 2.5-inch screen. Finally, Canon also unveiled the highly anticipated EOS-400D, better known in North America as the successor to the Digital Rebel XT. The new model improves through a 10.1 megapixel sensor, a larger 2.5-inch LCD, automatic dust removal, and a dramatically increased burst speed of up to 27 large JPEG (or 10 RAW) shots at 3 frames per second. Pricing and availability is not available at this time, but expect all four cameras to replace their predecessors by Photokina in late September for approximately the same price as current equivalents. See photos of the A630, A710 IS, and EOS-400D after the jump.
