    If Canon's goal is to attract people who use their smartphone for taking pictures they should not only provide cameras with optical zoom but also with good low light capability. Unfortunately Canon's chosen to replace the CMOS sensor of some of its relatively inexpensive point and shoots (like the Elph 110, Elph 130, Elph 530) with CCD sensors, which are less capable in low light. The SX400 looks to be a replacement of the SX510 but the SX510 is a far more capable camera in low light thanks to its CMOS sensor. The new SX520 has the CMOS sensor but it retails for about $150 more than the SX400, which puts it out of reach of many smartphone camera users.
