Canon unveils four cameras
Canon today launched new PowerShot A-Series (site not updated) digital cameras, as well as its EOS Digital Rebel XT digital camera. The company's new PowerShot A710 IS, A640, and A630 compact digital cameras feature a compact form factor that fits snugly in the hand. The 7.1, 10.0 and 8.0 megapixel cameras offer high resolution and are expected to ship this October for $400, $400, and $300, respectively. Canon's new 10.1 megapixel EOS Digital Rebel XT camera is expected to ship in mid-September for under $1,000, and will be offered in both sleek brushed silver patina and "pro" matte black finishes. Users can purchase the device in two kit configurations: with and without Canon's EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens.
