The release of the Canon PowerShot Pro1 marked Canon's entry into the growing 8-megapixel camera market. Unveiled at the 2004 Photo Marketing Association show in Las Vegas, the Canon Pro1 is one of seven new PowerShot cameras announced by Canon in early February 2004. The PowerShot Pro1 has a 7x optical zoom, an advanced L-series lens, and a fold-out 2" LCD screen. If high resolution is a must, the Pro 1 is worthy of consideration.
