Canon's Got the Touch.Canon's iconic ELPH has always been a show-off, with the looks and smarts that make you want to carry it out in the open for everyone to see. The PowerShot SD980 IS takes the concept even further with Canon's first-ever touch panel interface. The camera that invented sleek and slim is equipped with a huge 3-inch PureColor System LCD screen that responds to your touch, delivering operation that's as natural and intuitive as cutting-edge technology should be. Four opulent color options are the icing on the cake.
A Canon First: Touch Panel Technology.Large 3.0-inch wide touch panel PureColor System LCD with a cool cutting-edge interface, plus an updated Active Display for quickly switching between images during playback with a shake of the camera. Just touch your finger to the huge 3.0-inch PureColor System LCD panel and the PowerShot SD980 IS responds - creating a fun, natural interface that's just the way you want to interact with technology now. When shooting, you can choose an AF point, select a shooting mode, operate the flash, set exposure compensation and more. Playback functions are also performed at your touch: switch between images, scroll display, magnify a portion of an image and control movie playback.
More Image, More Fun.Get more in your shot with a 5x Optical Zoom with ultra-wide 24mm lens, plus Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer and 12 Megapixels for amazing resolution and editing. The PowerShot SD980 IS gives you the creative flexibility to get up close or go wide, for impressive images framed just the way you want them.

The lens is ultra wide-angle, with a focal length of 24 - 120mm (35mm equivalent). That puts more image in every shot for visual excitement and a high-end feel. And the best part?
