Canon released the new IXUS 850 IS 7.1MP camera with a 3.8x optical zoom lens and 2.5 inch LCD screen for viewing of pictures. The camera is designed with some sort of clear lacquer finishes which resists scratches which makes the camera look new for a longer time. Measuring 89.5mm x 58.0mm x 25.1mm, this camera is equipped with large controls which are easy to function and visibly labeled. The company also has included optical image stabilization to assist in lesser illumination situations or at longer focal lengths when the user doesn’t want the flash to fire. No word on pricing and availability yet. So, stay tuned for more updates.
