Cannon PowerShot SX130 ISWell it’s obviously that time of year, Canon are announcing products left, right & centre.

This time around we’re focusing (pun intended) on their compact range of consumer cameras… bit of a tongue twister that one, anyhow the new PowerShot SX130 IS and PowerShot S95 as shown below are targeted towards two different markets, but both are sure to be excellent value for money, and we hope to be able to review both of these new compacts at some point after their September release date.
