Canon PowerShot SD800 IS

Canon’s PowerShot range of compact cameras – especially point and shoot types – have reaped praise from each side for their user friendliness, simplicity of operation and great designs. The Canon PowerShot SD800 IS too, proves to be no exception to the rule. What’s more, it comes with Optical Image Stabilization function, which would not only remove blur from images taken, but make them immune to shake much before the picture is taken, so that the picture is clearer and crisper. This simple point and shoot camera comes with 7.1mp resolution and 3.8x optical zoom.

Design and Functioning

Canon has been often appreciated for the stylistic cameras that it comes with, in its PowerShot range of compact point and shoot cameras. Many of them come in wonderful colours that the average consumer would love to flaunt. The Canon PowerShot SD800 IS also bears the signatory Canon design that is touted for simplicity, fluidity and excellent ergonomics. It, however, comes only in one colour of Metallic Silver. This new IS model features a number of significant advancements, including improved low-light performance due to the combination of optical IS and a top ISO speed of 1600, and for the first time in the Digital ELPH series, an optical 3.8x wide range zoom lens (28-105mm equivalent), which employs Canon's UA lens technology that permits a longer zoom capability in a smaller amount of space. Its DIGIC III technology also empowers new Face Detection AF/AE, which finds all the faces in the frame and sets the most suitable focus point, when the shutter button is pressed half-way. Its Photo Effects feature lets the user give some special effects on pictures clicked – its modes include Vivid, Vivid Blue, Vivid Green, Vivid Red, Neutral, Sepia, Black & White, Positive Film, Lighter Skin Tone, and Darker. For recording video and audio, and play it back too, this camera provides built in microphones and speakers. It comes along with a 16MB card is compatible with SD/SDHC as well as MMC cards.
