Yesterday, Canon released a couple of updated PowerShot cameras and there’s really only one that stands out among them in my opinion. It’s the PowerShot SD4500 IS. It films in 1080p HD (unlike the S95′s 720p HD limit) and also features Canon’s first slow-motion video capture mode allowing it to take fast frame-rate videos at 240fps. At this point, I haven’t read anything about the limits of the 240fps recording mode, so I just hope that it’s not limited to crappy 640×480 sized video.

My only gripe about this camera is that it doesn’t come in black.
