Exciting New Releases

t's that time of year again, and the big digital camera manufacturers are wasting no time in pushing out some hot new products for users eager to get started on their holiday wish lists.

In particular, Canon has presented a small, but exciting series of new cameras. We already told you about the Digital Rebel XTi / 400D, but now Canon has something special for all the mainstream photographers, especially those who have been loyal to their 'A' series. Last year, the A620 and A610 were the runaway hits, improving on the already fantastic Powershot A95 with more megapixels and a smoother design. Now, Canon introduces the Powershot A630 and A640, bringing 'mainstream' cameras into places formerly reserved for professionals and gadget freaks. The A640 clocks in at a whopping 10 megapixels, while the A630 has 8. Both cameras have 2.5-inch LCD displays and substantial 4x optical zooms. We at DCHQ have no doubt that these are going to be successful and satisfying cameras, continuing the strong tradition of the Canon 'A' series.
