Canon goodies for Dad this Father’s Day

If Dad fancies himself as a budding Peter Bush or possibly Peter Jackson then Canon has the ideal Father’s Day gift that will still leave the kids with money in the savings account.

The Canon PowerShot range of digital cameras provides the highest quality in photographic equipment and image production while delivering value for money.

Choose a PowerShot A580 and Dad gets a feature packed 8 megapixel camera with DiG!C III image processing technology, movie recording, face detection and much more, the perfect choice for any entry level photographer.

For the perfect combination of performance and style the IXUS range of cameras deliver in all areas, the IXUS 960IS has all the high end features; a 12.1 Megapixel ultra high definition camera in a titanium body.

Team any of the Canon cameras up with a SELPHY ES2 compact photo printer and Dad has the ultimate home photo shop, the SELPHY printer has a revolutionary integrated paper and ink cassette, printing instant postcard size photos.

“Sometimes it can be difficult choosing gifts, you could not go wrong with Canon equipment for the Dad in your life!” says Rochelle Mora, Product Manager Photographic, Canon New Zealand.

If the latest in video technology is more his thing then the new Canon concept of “freecording” may give him the opportunity to express his inner director.

Equip him with the new Canon FS100 camcorder for the best in video image quality and all the benefits of recording to a memory card.

The FS range camcorders utilise flash memory technology to give them the benefits of faster response time, lowering of power consumption and the flexibility to exchange media between digital devices.

Freecording is now in New Zealand, this is a movement towards breaking down past perceptions of camcording only on “special” occasions and getting out and about with camera in hand and making the most of it.
