Canon launched new cameras covering the high-end to the low-end
Canon has announced a slew of new digital cameras today, including the EOS Rebel T5, which is a neutered version of the
T5i D-SLR that was introduced last year
. The T5 has a native resolution of 18MP, uses an APS-C image sensor, and incorporates the DIGIC 4 image processor to help reduce costs (the T5i used the DIGIC 5).
The Rebel T5 has an ISO range of 100-6400 that is expandable to 12800. Other features include a nine-point AF system, 1080p movie mode and a “Live View” rear LCD.

The next new camera is the 12.8MP Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II. This camera has a number of interesting features including a 1.5-inch CMOS sensor, DIGIC 6 image processor, 5x zoom lens, 3-inch LCD, Wi-Fi, and NFC. The PowerShot G1 X Mark II can record full HD video, can shoot RAW images, and has an ISO range of 100-12800.

The 13.1MP PowerShot D30 is for the adventurer and is designed to survive water and other hazards. The camera can take photos and video at up to 82-feet below the surface. It can also withstand temperatures from 14 to 104F and survive drops from 6.5 feet. Given that the PowerShot D30 is targeted for extreme outdoor use, it also features onboard GPS so that you can geotag your photos.
The SX700 HS will ship in March for $349.99, with the D30 shipping in April for $329.99.

How's that GPS working for you? I've looked at some options (a while ago), but the GPS always needed a few minutes to get a lock - an instant deal-breaker. Have things improved?
