Canon has just announced the addition of two new cameras to its PowerShot lineup – the PowerShot S100 and PowerShot SX40 HS. Designed for consumers on the hunt for compact yet powerful cameras, the new PowerShot cameras offer a wide range of options to please both folks who like to just point and shoot, and those who want complete manual control as well. Both models feature Canon’s DIGIC Imaging processor, the DIGIC 5, which ensure high quality results when shooting in all conditions.

It features a 24mm ultra-wide angle, 5.0x optical zoom lens; Canon’s Intelligent Image Stabilizer, GPS functionality for geotagging, full HD 1080p movie recording, HDMI output, and a large 3″ LCD display. The SX40 HS features a larger DSLR-like body, and packs a 35x ultra-wide-angle zoom lens, full manual control, fill HD movie capture, Image Stabilizer, HDMI output, a 2.7″ LCD display, and manual modes.
