Lake Success, NY—Along with the A2600 and the A1400 digital cameras, Canon USA announced the PowerShot Elph 130 IS. To give consumers a simple, yet enhanced image-sharing experience, Canon’s built-in wireless functionality has evolved with new options that help make posting on social networking sites easier.
And for users who are constantly on the move, the Elph 130 IS is outfitted with eco mode, a new feature that provides approximately 30% longer battery life when enabled.
“Our new PowerShot models have advanced features that give photographers an enhanced high-quality imaging experience allowing them to fulfill their day-to-day photography needs, express their vision and tell their story with ease, at a great value,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communication Group, Canon USA.
The wireless functionality built into the PowerShot Elph 130 IS provides users with more connectivity options. With the download of the free Canon CameraWindow app from an Android or iOS app store, users can connect to both iOS or Android smartphones and tablets to wirelessly transfer photos and videos from their camera to their device.
The camera can also connect directly to social networking sites using Canon’s iMage Gateway, making photos easily accessible and ready to share. In addition, the PowerShot Elph 130 IS has the ability to connect to computers and select PowerShot cameras with wireless functionality, making it possible for images to be available in various locations. And photos can be printed using PictBridge on select Canon printers, including the new Pixma MG6320 or Pixma MX922 wireless photo all-in-one printers.
To make connecting easy, a new wireless history menu lists the last three connections used for uploading and sharing images. For users who want to share their images with friends and family, the advanced wireless functionality with social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube lets them comment directly from the camera. In addition, they can share images and directly comment to Facebook groups, so the effort of first sending the images to a smartphone and then posting to Facebook is no longer necessary.
Additional features include: an 8x optical zoom with 28mm wide-angle lens; a 16 megapixel sensor with a Digic 4 processor; smart auto mode, which provides an automatic way to get the shot in many situations; a 3.0-inch LCD screen; and intelligent IS to help take blur-free image.
Canon’s PowerShot Elph 130 IS digital camera comes in a choice of red, gray or silver. $199.99. usa.canon.com
