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.
â€œWith 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,â€ said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. â€œThe two functions in the HS SYSTEM allow our customers to capture the clearest pictures in any setting, resulting in more of a professional look.â€
The new Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH will be available later this month at a retail price of $350.
