Canon’s Powershot E1 will go on sale at the beginning of September. The specs are respectable for a point-and-shoot: 10-megapixels, 4x optical zoom and optical image stabilization, macro
mode, ISO80-1600 (with 3200 scene mode) and a 2.5-inch TFT display.
The E1 runs on AA batteries and weighs in at 0.35 pounds. It will be priced at about $200. Oh, and it’s available in vanilla, powder blue and baby pink. After all, who doesn’t need a pink camera?
According to a press release from Canon, the color choices give the E1 a ‘youthful twist.’ The camera’s start-up screen and menus can even be coordinated with the camera’s body color.
