Canon Powershot SD980 IS Digital ELPH Digital Camera (Gold)

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty

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. Despite its slim profile and tiny body, the camera is equipped with a 5x Optical Zoom - no more sitting on the sidelines with the action too far away. 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? Even at the long end of the zoom, images are clear and steady thanks to Canon's Optical Image Stabilization that controls camera shake. And with 12.1 Megapixels, the PowerShot SD980 IS provides amazing image resolution.

Create Movies in Stunning HD.
720p HD movie shooting capability plus HDMI output connector for easy playback of video and photos on your HDTV. The PowerShot SD980 IS lets you record video in beautiful high definition (1280 x 720 pixels). The camera also makes it easy to enjoy HD movies (and still photos) on your HDTV with a mini-HDMI connector for direct connection to a high-definition monitor. You'll enjoy the HD experience with no degradation of image or audio in the signal, plus the ability to display up to 130 thumbnails at once.

The Color of You.
Optimize your personality with four opulent colors: Silver, Blue, Purple, and Gold. Canon's designers have rendered their vision of today's PowerShot SD980 IS in four delicious new colors. Now all you have to do is decide which one you want tucked in your bag, peeking from your pocket or dangling from your wrist all day. What color best expresses your personal style: Silver, Blue, Purple or Gold?

Instant Creative Control.
Improved Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper settings for the camera based on 22 predefined shooting situations. Just set the Canon PowerShot SD980 IS to Smart AUTO and you're ready for maximum enjoyment from your picture taking every time. It's a relaxing and satisfying way to shoot because you can completely concentrate on your subject knowing that the camera has the technical details covered. Advanced Canon technology intelligently analyzes your situation and shooting conditions. Then it automatically selects an appropriate setting from specially defined settings. So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset, or your friends at the park, you can be confident that you're getting dramatic, memorable images. Even if your subject is moving, Canon's advanced detection technologies capture the action as it happens.

Shooting Modes
Advanced presets for the best possible photos under certain conditions. With 20 Shooting Modes, you're ready for whatever shot comes your way.

3 out of 5 stars   Not Bad but Not for Me
By Mar Pro Shooter (Asheville,NC) May 09, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SD980 IS Digital ELPH Digital Camera (Gold) (CNPSSD980ISG)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Very small
Cons: Limited Zoom, Felt like plastic
Other Comments: I returned this camera. Having owned three other Canon Elphs (that I have worn out over the years) this one was purchased to replace my old reliable that died the 950.I thought just staying with the same model but updated would be good. I found the controls on this camera small, hard to find, the touch screen while a cool feature, made it too easy to mistakenly change settings. Camera felt like like lightweight plastic and I was sure would break just being in my purse.
