Canon Introduces SD4000 IS Digital ELPH Compact

Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH Camera

The Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH camera made its debut today, touting top-level Canon features in a modern, stylish frame.

While most compacts offer CCD image sensors, the new SD4000 feature a CMOS sensor coupled with a fast f/2.0 lens in a combination that Canon calls its high-sensitivity, or HS System. That combination should help users capture photos in low light conditions.

“With the introduction of the new PowerShot SD4000 IS, Canon is putting the power of high-quality photography in an ultra-compact size to amplify the experience and quality customers see when shooting with a Canon camera,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “The two functions in the HS SYSTEM allow our customers to capture the clearest pictures in any setting, resulting in more of a professional look.”

The new Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH will be available later this month at a retail price of $350.
