Remember the Canon PowerShot D10? The company's first ruggedized underwater cam was a solid snapper, but its bulky submarine-like design made it impractical for most surface-based shoots. The PowerShot D20 offers a drastic improvement over its predecessor in the appearance department, more closely resembling a compact point-and-shoot than a subaqueous vessel.
Earlier this week Canon rolled out the red carpet for its new line of PowerShot cameras, and two among them are the tiny point-and-shoot ELPH 160 and 170 IS compacts we recently went hands-on with here at CES 2015.
If you're intohigh-end compact cameras, you'll have another one to choose from soon -- we just don't knowhowsoon. Interestingly, Canon has revealed that it is working on the PowerShot G3 X, but the company wasn't willing to share many details about it.
This week the folks at Canon have revealed details on the PowerShot G3 X officially. Not in full, that is to say, and not in a way that's similar to that of the announcements they've made of other cameras this week.
Canon has rolled out the latest addition to its line of EOS digital cameras with the all-new EOS M3. The big feature of this camera is that it has a compact body and promises to deliver DSLR levels of performance.

This week we've got one whole heck of a lot of Canon photography equipment being revealed, with cameras popping up from the very inexpensive to the top of the line in personal shooters. The SX410 IS comes as the successor to the SX400 HS, the PowerShot ELPH 350 HS comes as the successor to the ELPH 340 HS, and the EOS Rebel T6i comes as the latest edition of the "classic" Rebel.
In order to defend itself against smalldrones,Chinabuilt a laser-based system that can shoot down the compact aircraft up to 1.2 miles away. According to the officialXinhuanews agency, the tech can bring down the rogue flying machines within five seconds of locating them at altitudes of up to 500 meters (1,640 feet).
Canon is determined to leave no camera niche uncovered, it seems. Just a month after it kicked out anavalanche of PowerShot point-and-shoots, it's back with two more that fill what few holes are left. The SX410 IS super-zoom is the darling of the two, and improves on the still-youngSX400 ISwith an even longer-ranged 40x stabilized lens and a sharper 20.
Plenty of peoplehave switchedto smartphones for their photography needs, but that doesn't meanstandalone camerasare dead just yet. Companies like Fuji, Canon and Olympus continue to make great DSLRs and interchangeable lens cameras for photographers who are serious about their picture-taking.
Here at CES 2015, we got our hands on Canon’s newest Powershot point-and-shoot cameras. their SX610 offers an 18x optical zoom via the 25-450mm lens, while the SX710 gets even more detailed with a 30x zoom from a 25-750mm lens. If you’re in need of more, the SX530 is about as good as a pocketable camera gets with 50x zoom from a 24-1200mm lens.

Exactly four new mid-range phones will be unveiled: the LG Joy, LG Spirit, LG Leon, and LG Magna.
Panasonic has rolled out a pair of new digital cameras that are ruggedized and aimed at the outdoors type that needs a camera that is easy to use and can survive the outdoors.

Kodakhas already thrownits hatinto the action camfray, but its new gadget offers a much wider view of the goings-on.

If some parents fret over their children's safety in swimming pools, they might be horrified to learn of this new death trap in Italy. The Y-40, also aptly nicknamed "The Deep Joy", is a swimming pool on the grounds of four star hotel Terme Millepini in Venice that might look normal on the surface, or even a few meters deep.
Due to the popularity of smartphones, camera manufacturershave had to scrambletrying to find ways to keep their products relevant. AndOlympus is no strangerto this. Now, the company has announced its Stylus SH-2, a point-and-shoot camera that's using retro looks to, hopefully, appeal to the masses. Like they say, however, looks aren't everything.
It's 27 feet (8.23 meters) tall, 56 feet (17.1 meters) long, breathes fire through its mouth and nostrils, and can be found in Berlin, Germany. Don't worry, it isn't a real dragon, just an amusement park attraction, but it is now the world's largest robot according to Guinness World Records.
Avid photographers know lighting is important. Often times, those dedicated to getting the perfect picture have expensive meters meant to allow them insight on which is the best exposure and filter (among other camera controls) to use. Lumu, a new plug-in for your iPhone, wants to help lighten your camera bag by getting you to leave the meter at home.
CES day four (technically day 3, but we’re counting Monday’s pre-event as a day anyway) brought a lot of fun little gadgets and toys. There was more VR, some point-and-shoot cameras, and even a printer that’s not a printer. More Internet of Things stuff was announced, and in case you weren’t sure, SD cards are NFC-capable, now.
