Canon has today announced an ‘October’ debut for the PowerShot G11, a 10-million-pixel camera boasting a 2.8in vari-angle LCD screen and improved noise reduction.

The G11’s zoom is designed to deliver the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 28mm lens at the wide end.

A Dual Anti-Noise System enables use of an equivalent ISO of up to 3,200, for full resolution images in ‘difficult lighting conditions’, according to Canon.

The firm claims to have enhanced its Intelligent Contrast Correction. A new Low Light mode can be used to achieve ‘low noise levels, at reduced resolution, in a higher ISO range’.

Photographers can capture 2.5MP images at an ISO up to 12,800, and deliver a burst rate of ‘2.4 frames per second’, according to the firm.

‘The G11 also includes a built-in three-stop Neutral Density filter and white balance fine control that enables photographers to more accurately account for variations in natural and artificial light…’, added Canon in a press statement released this afternoon.

The G11 will cost £569.
