Canon has revealed its ?most complete compact yet? in the shape of the ?classically styled? 10-million-pixel PowerShot G7.

Sporting a 2.5in LCD screen the G7 has a claimed top equivalent ISO sensitivity of ISO 1600 and an f/2.8 6x zoom delivering the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 35-210mm lens. The nine-element-in-seven group lens contains an aspherical element to help minimise distortion.

Due in UK stores next month priced £449.99, the G7 also includes optical image stabilisation technology and a hotshoe for attaching optional Speedlite flash.

Also on board are 25 shooting modes, plus manual exposure and focusing and two custom settings. It also incorporates Canon?s DIGIC III image processor and Face Detection AF/AE. The DIGIC III processor aims to improve ?responsiveness and colour rendering along with increased noise reduction?.
