Canon Powershot SD4000 Digital Camera

This powerful point and shoot model is the first in this range to provide a very sensitive system, called the HS SYSTEM of Canon, with a f/2.0 lens and a CMOS sensor.

This camera provides the best image quality for an ELPH model. Its features enable users to capture wonderful scenes even in conditions of low light. Its high definition (HD) movie taking features offer an extra choice for cataloging important events. Basically this model is useful for any user who wants the latest style and functionality.

The best attributes of this camera are demonstrated in sunset or dimly lit scenarios. Its back illuminated 10 megapixel CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 4 image processor combine to lower noise at high speeds of ISO and improves quality of image under low light conditions. The f/2.0 lens along with the HS SYSTEM of Canon enables entry of more light, offering high speeds of shutter, for further lowering the camera shake effect and enhancing image quality and shape.

This combination of HS SYSTEM and the f/2.0 lens helps users in taking photos without using flash, thereby giving increased field depth and more natural look, rendering it an excellent tool for portrait photography. It has the fastest high-speed rate of burst currently for this camera range that is 8.4 frames a second (fps). Its shutter and aperture controls are new for the EPPH cameras, which allow for creative control and enhanced flexibility, rendering this camera ideal for users keen to achieve more in photography.

Its texture, well crafted curves and  modern appearance will please  design savvy users. Its HD Movie feature is among its most distinguishing features making it a must have camera model. The dual purpose model enables users to compose video creatively and capture important moments. The My Color function having Color Accent and Cold Swap options will enable users to enjoy the movie footage. The camera’s video content can be downloaded through the USB connection and played back through an HDMI output connector on the HDTV easily.

Its Super Slow Motion feature enables recording of high frame rate video giving the video a slow motion appearance when regular speed play back is done. Other features of this camera include 3.8 optical zoom having optical image stabilization for ensuring clear images, a screen LCD having 3.0 inch wide angle for preview and review of images and an on-camera menu, smart shutter technology for shooting images when a person winks or smiles automatically resulting in reduced re-takes and new scene modes like fish eye effects and miniature for improving overall creativity.

Canon U.S.A.’s General Manager and Executive Vice President Yuichi Ishizuka informed that users can shoot the clearest picture under any setting due to the two functions provided by the HS SYSTEM, giving an added professional look.
