As has been the case in years past, Canon's taken to CES to reveal an upgraded line of PowerShot and Vixia cameras and camcorders. For point-and-shoots, the main model being introduced is the SX540 HS (pictured above), a superzoom model with a 24.3-megapixel, 50x optical zoom lens and Digic 6 processor. It's now capable of 1080p at 60 fps as well, compared to 30 fps on its predecessor, the SX530 HS. The company is also introducing the ELPH 360HS, which features a 22-megapixel CMOS sensor, Digic 4+ processor and a 12x optical zoom (25-300mm equivalent).

On the camcorder front, meanwhile, there's the top-of-the-line Vixia HF G40, a video shooter geared toward amateur filmmakers. It sports a wide-angle 20x HD Optical Zoom Lens, an HD CMOS PRO Image Sensor -- the same chip found on the XA30 and XA35 pro models. What's more, the HF G40 also comes with a 3.5-inch OLED, tilting touchscreen, 1080p video support at up to 60 fps and dual SD card slots. It will hit stores in February for a cool $1,300.

The SX540 HS, on the other hand will be available in March for $400, while the ELPH 360 HS is set to arrive in February for $210.
