Continuing its barrage of compact camera announcements, Canon has revealed some new midrange PowerShot point-and-shoots. First up is the ultracompact ELPH series, which has gained two models with Wi-Fi support — these will launch alongside a new iOS app called Canon CameraWindow for quick wireless photo transfer. An Android app is expected to be available in May. The 0.78-inch thick ELPH 530 HS ($349.99, out April) features a boxy retro design reminiscent of the ELPH APS film cameras, and has a 12x optical zoom, a 10-megapixel CMOS sensor, and the same DIGIC 5 image processor we've seen in recent high-end compacts from the company such as the G12 and S100. The ELPH 320 HS ($279.99, out March), meanwhile, has a 16.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and 5x optical zoom, in a more modern but much less striking form factor. Both new ELPHs have 3.2-inch touchscreens for control and are capable of 1080p video.

Next we have the waterproof, shockproof and dustproof D20 ($349.99, out May), which comes in a unique piscine design and features a 12.1-megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom, 1080p video and an "underwater macro" mode designed for divers or snorkelers who want to get in close. Finally, for those in need of a little more reach the SX260 ($349.99, out March) is a 1.29-inch thick superzoom with a 25-500mm equivalent lens (that's 20x zoom), DIGIC 5 image processor and 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor. The camera can shoot 1080p video, features GPS image tagging, and also has a burst shooting mode that can capture around 10 high-resolution shots at over 10 frames a second.
