The Canon PowerShot A1100 IS is a brand new 12 megapixel compact digital camera with a 4x optical zoom lens. Offering a focal range of 35-140mm, the A1100 offers Optical Image Stabilization and motion detection technology to help combat camera shake. There’s a 2.5 inch LCD screen on the back with a wide viewing angle, plus a traditional optical viewfinder, new Smart Auto mode with Scene Detection Technology for true point-and-shoot operation, and a veritable wealth of Face Detection options. Available in silver, grey, blue, pink and green, the Canon A1100 IS won’t be available until early-April, but that hasn’t stopped us from already reviewing this $199.99 / £219.00 / €259.00 camera.

Gavin Stoker discovers if the $229 / £249 / €299 IXUS 95 IS / SD1200 IS is the perfect pocket compact camera.

Are you feeling the economic pinch, but still want a more than capable compact camera? Then you could do a lot worse than Canon's cheapest camera, the Powershot A480. With a 10 megapixel sensor, 3.3x zoom lens and 2.5 inch LCD screen, the A480 offers a solid base onto which it adds a 1cm macro mode, face detection and digital anti-shake system. The Canon A480 doesn't offer the bells and whistles of more expensive models, but it can be yours for just $129.99 / £129.00 / €159.00. Read our in-depth review to find out if the Canon PowerShot A480 is worth the modest investment.
