Canon has announced that they will be rolling out some new SX and D models of its PowerShot line this year!

The new slim, 1.29″ Canon SX260 HS offers users a 20x zoom, a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, and 25mm Wide-Angle lens. This model will also allow video to be shot in 1080p Full HD. At around $350, this camera also will have GPS capabilities and High-Speed Burst HQ, a feature that will allow for “approximately 10 high-resolution shots to be captured at a continuous rate at 10.3 frames per second.”

For all of you active, adventurous photographers out there, the PowerShot D20 is tricked out for your rugged lifestyle. It’s waterproof, shock-proof, and freeze-proof, with a button that makes it easy to quickly switch from normal mode to snow or underwater mode. And speaking of underwater mode, the PowerShot D20 also comes with an underwater macro mode so you can get right up in those tropical fish’s faces. Expected to ship in May for around $350, it will have a 3-inch LCD screen, GPS capabilities, 1080p full HD video, and a 5x optical zoom lens.

Mitchell Parsons has taken photos of both celebs and musicians, but now he says its time for a change. After photo documenting the Occupy Wall Street Movement, he has decided that he wants to use his photography skills to make a difference. Parsons aims to show us the truth of  the many social inequities and injustices that many are facing around the world. The media’s attention sometimes gets bogged down in trivial matters, and the important stories go untold. Currently, Mitchell is looking for donations for some heavy-duty equipment, such as a bullet proof vest and gas mask kit, for his next story in Egypt. He aims to raise the money by May 3rd of this year, so if you are interested in helping take part in bringing the truth to life via his photos, click HERE.

Ready for a little destruction? Artist Ian Sailer used high-speed photography to capture the exact moment various objects were hit by a pellet gun. This incredible series, titled Color Explosion Photos, is focused mostly on food, but a few other objects also fall victim to Sailer’s gun. Check out some of the results below and the full gallery at his Flickr.
