Canon PowerShot SD960 IS

People who have experimented with photography and not just their cameras know that pictures taken at wide angle of full zoom out mode are clearer and almost immune to shake or blur. In fact, experts would recommend first time camera users, be it DSLRS or point or shoot cameras, to go for cameras that offer wide angled lenses so that they get the hang of keeping their hands steady while shooting. If only people understood the value of cameras like the Canon PowerShot SD960 IS, which is a 12mp and 4x wide angle zoom lens. Apart from a wide angle zoom, this lightweight camera incorporates the Active Display, which makes usage all the more convenient.

Design and Functioning

Canon’s cameras have always been seen as scoring very high on design and ergonomics. With a width of hardly 22mm and weighing hardly 145gs, this camera is one of those slip-into-the-pocket-and-forget cameras that turn into style statements the moment you own one. The Canon PowerShot SD960 IS is made available in four colours – Sky Blue, Metallic Silver, Baby Pink and Champagne Gold. This camera offers a complete wide shooting solution for both still images and video. A wide-angle lens (28–112mm) captures more in the frame, making it ideal for scenery or group shots. Active Display is one quality that this camera has been bestowed with, with which the user needs to just give the camera a quick shake to advance or return images one frame at a time. Tilting the camera will activate continuous image advance, and tilting at a further angle will make the images advance more quickly. Another feature worthy of note is Canon’s Smart Auto feature which makes use of Canon’s Scene Detection Technology to analyse the shooting scene in detail – checking subject brightness, contrast, distance and overall hue. The camera then instantly selects one of 18 possible modes, to ensure perfect settings for the scene. The storage cards that this camera is compatible with are SD, SDHC, MMC, MMCplus and HC MMCplus.
