Canon will ship a new lens in the summer that should help macro photographers shed a little light on their close-ups.
The EF-S 35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM sports built-in LEDs on either side of the lens to illuminate your subjects. It can focus on objects as close as 0.43 feet.
The 56mm equivalent lens uses a hybrid image stabilization system good for up to four stops of shake reduction, per CIPA standards. It offers full-time manual focusing, movie servo AF and a seven-blade aperture.
The 35mm macro lens will ship in July for $350.
Canon also released a new PowerShot compact camera. The SX730HS uses a 20-megapixel CMOS sensor with a built-in 24-960mm equivalent lens. It offers a 3-inch display, Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth. You can record full HD movies up to 60p and use the self portrait mode for those all important selfies.
The SX730HS arrives in June for $400.
