Event: Canon Chinese New Year Lohei media lunch in Singapore

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Canon ushers in the Lunar New Year in Singapore with an early Lohei lunch.

Canon Singapore hosted the annual Lohei lunch with media at Aura restaurant at the National Gallery Singapore.

To the left of the menu in the cover photo above, you can see the PowerShot SX430 IS.

The immediate reaction upon lifting up the camera is that it is incredibly light.

Preview of the new IXUS 190 (left) & PowerShot SX430 IS. These were part of 4 new compact cameras Canon has just unveiled. Prices & availability TBA.

So light that I thought it was a plastic prototype with nothing inside.

But it’s a fully functional superzoom with 45x optical zoom going from 24 to 1080mm.
