Canon PowerShot


Canon PowerShot

The PowerShot products are a line of consumer and prosumer grade digital cameras, launched by Canon in 1995. The PowerShot line has been successful for Canon, and is one of the best-selling digital camera lines worldwide. On the photo sharing website Flickr, in the point-and-shoot category, the top three most-uploaded photographs are taken with Canon PowerShot cameras. [It is for example by far the most-used camera on Flickr (see http://www.flickr.com/cameras/).]

According to Slashdot, freeware from the CHDK project allows nearly complete programmatic control of PowerShot cameras, enabling users to add features, up to and including BASIC scripting.

Some models of Powershot cameras were affected by third party CCD sensors with a design flaw which caused them to fail and display severely distorted images. Canon has offered to repair affected cameras free of charge. [http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=225&modelid=13390&keycode=2112&id=29819]
