Canon has unveiled a trio of new cameras, covering the compact and mid-range DSLR markets. The EOS 80D is a prosumer 24.2-megapixel DSLR that is meant to replace the three year old 70D, while the PowerShot G7 X Mark II is a refresh of the existing compact G7 X, and the PowerShot SX720 HS is more of an entry-level version that offers slightly lower specifications in its compact size, as well as a smaller price tag.
Canon has launched a trio of cameras, following after yesterday's quiet surfacing of the imaging devices on company websites. The EOS M10 is an entry-level mirrorless camera with self portrait modes and a lens that can shorten to make it easier to carry around, while the PowerShot G5 X includes a high-resolution electronic viewfinder, and the PowerShot G9 X is billed as a lightweight camera that can be and easily carried anywhere due to its size.
Canon has confirmed it will be bringing the EOS M3 mirrorless camera to the United States in the near future, following its launch in European and Asian markets earlier this year. The compact snapper, which houses a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor with the DIGIC 6 image processor, will be arriving in the country in early October, with it keeping exactly the same list of specifications as its international counterparts.
Canon has launched a mirrorless Compact System Camera destined for markets in Europe and Asia. The EOS M3 packs in similar functionality and specifications as its full DSLR counterparts, including a 24.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor combined with the DIGIC 6 image processor, but packed into a compact 44mm (1.7 inches) thick, 12-ounce body.
Canon is adding two new ultra wide-angle lenses to its range of glass for its DSLR cameras, as well as a new color variant of an existing model. The EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and the EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM are accompanied by a version of the EOS Rebel SL1 DSLR it released in March last year, but this time it will be available in white.
Canon has launched another DSLR in its Rebel range of cameras, aimed at the entry-level market. An upgrade from the EOS Rebel T3 launched in 2011, the Canon EOS Rebel T5 uses an 18-megapixel CMOS APS-C sensor with a DIGIC 4 image processor, giving it a sensitivity range of ISO 100 to ISO 12,800, the ability to capture 1080p video at 30fps, and a continuous shooting mode of 3fps.

Apple employees testing wheelchair features
New features included in the forthcoming watchOS 3 are being tested by Apple retail store employees, including a new activity-tracking feature that has been designed with wheelchair users in mind. The move is slightly unusual in that, while retail employees have previously been used to test pre-release versions of OS X and iOS, this marks the first time they've been included in the otherwise developer-only watchOS betas. The company is said to have gone to great lengths to modify the activity tracker for wheelchair users, including changing the "time to stand" notification to "time to roll" and including two wheelchair-centric workout apps. http://bit.ly/2955JDa
