Canon announces PowerShot SD850 / SD950 IS, S5 IS

Ryan Block, @ryan

We know it's late and you should really be asleep if you're reading this right now, but just in case you were waiting to see if Sunday night / Monday morning had any product launches crop up, here's a few: Canon's new PowerShots, the SD850 / SD950 IS and S5 IS. Sounds like the SD850 / SD950 are the different badges it'll get in the US and overseas, but at the end of the day you've got an 8 megapixel camera with a 4x optical zoom, image stabilization, 1600 ISO sensor, DIGIC III processor, SDHC support, and 2.5-inch display. The PowerShot S5, successor to last year's PowerShot S3, also features an 8 megapixel image stabilized 1600 ISO sensor and 2.5-inch display, but naturally has a 12x optical zoom and hotshoe. They should retail for $400 and $500, but we don't have anything official on that or a release date.
