Canon has announced six new additions to their A-series of compact, PowerShot cameras. All six models will feature 16 megapixel CCD sensors and 720p HD video capture.

The PowerShot A4000 IS, A3400 IS, A2400 IS, A2300, A1300, and A810 will all be capable of 5x optical zoom, save for the A4000 which will boost that to 8x. The A4000 and the A3400 will both have 3-inch LCD monitors, as well as intelligent image stabilization. The A2400 will also include stabilization, but only features a 2.7-inch display.

The A1300 gets the distinction of a hardware viewfinder, and all six cameras will feature Canon's powerful Digic IV processor.
