Not to be confused with the IXUS 210, the new model beats the IXUS 210 in optical zoom stats, but doesn't feature a touchscreen display.
Regardless of model numbers, we've already managed to grab a hands-on with the new compact camera, announced just hours ago, that will come in an array of gold, silver, purple and black colours.
Like the new Canon IXUS 210, Canon has focused on bringing an array of interestin enhancements above and beyond just making sure you can just point and shoot.
Picture modes of note are the "miniature" mode that is a basic tilt shift effect - making everything look like your shooting a model image - and a fisheye lens option that you can adjust the strength of (low, medium and high).
Of course, for those that actually just want to take pictures you'll get a wink mode and smile mode that means the PowerShot 210 IS won't snap until it see the right action.
Video comes in the guise of 30fps 720p capture.
It has also retained the DIGIC4 image processing, optical image stabilization and 28mm wide-angle lens of the SX200.
What has been upgraded, however, is the 3-inch 16:9 display, which now offers higher contrast and increased visibility compared to its older brother.
The PowerShot SX210 IS will be showing up in March 2010, and will cost £360.
