Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS

Rarely do we run into cameras that have something for everyone – those who love the digital aspects of it as well as the serious shutterbugs. It is often a task for camera manufacturers to come up with a camera that takes care of them all, since a lot of thought goes into coming up with ideas for such a camera. Since one section of the consumers prefers a higher megapixel value and the other refuses to fall into the megapixel myth. In a milieu like this, it is evident that a camera like the Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS will be extremely well received by all types of consumers. This 10mp and 3.8x camera comes with a backlit CMOS sensor and one of the fastest lens.

Design and Functioning

The Canon IXUS 300 HS is also known as the SD4000 IS Digital ELPH. The Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS is stylishly designed with appealing rounded edges, an elongated width and a smooth-to-the-touch finish. As its lens is internally stacked, it only protrudes from the body when the camera is in use, thus the device can be easily stored in a trouser pocket between shots. Build quality is good, with the usual mix of mainly metal body and plastic buttons, controls and port covers; it comes in colours as sophisticated as Devil’s Red, Midnight Black and Metallic Silver. Apart from back-illuminated 10 megapixel CMOS sensor, a 3.8x, the PowerShot SD4000 comes with a wide angle lens with a range of 28-106mm which also comes with the fastest aperture of f/2.0. The new HS System provides excellent performance in low light, making the most of the camera’s back-illuminated CMOS imaging sensor and DIGIC 4 processor, supporting a maximum ISO of 3200 at full resolution and reducing noise levels at all ISO speeds. The lens’ wide maximum aperture and its manually-controlled iris also provide users with greater control over depth of field, enabling the capture of impressive portraits and striking macro shots. Another feature that could appeal to a serious photographer is the Aperture and Shutter Priority exposure modes which provide a level of user control not seen on too many Canon point and shoot cameras. This camera is compatible with memory cards like SD, SDHC, SDXC, MMC, MMCplus and HC MMCplus.
