New Canon SX110 IS follows up on fun zoom SX100 IS

Canon makes its second attempt in the "fun zoom" SX-series with the SX-110-IS, which follows a year after the SX 100 IS.

Just like the SX100-IS it has a 10X IS lens, along with AA battery support. The screen "grows" to 3" from 2.5", while the effective megapixels are nine versus eight. No optical or electronic viewfinder, the 3" LCD is the only "window" to the world. It will be available in silver or black for around $300, and considering the SX100-IS supply side issues, it is a good thing Canon plans to make it available in late August, which is almost here.

And already, the SX110-IS is listed and discounted at Amazon. The SX110-IS is listed as "temporarily out of stock" for $280 and with free shipping at Amazon!
