Sure it's a fashion statement, but the PowerShot SD30 Digital ELPH lives up to its looks with impressive features including a 5.0 Megapixel CCD, high quality optical zoom and a cool new Camera Station. You'll carry this camera for its style, but use it for its easy interface and consistently gorgeous images.
Strong specs wrapped in couture style
There's no need to compromise image quality to get a camera in your favorite color. The PowerShot SD30 Digital ELPH is equipped with a 5.0 Megapixel CCD, allowing you to enlarge and crop your images freely. The camera's 2.4x optical zoom is ultra-compact while providing zooming flexibility.
Canon Technology Maximizes Quality and Performance
The PowerShot SD30 Digital ELPH incorporates Canon's DIGIC II Image Processor. Designed to improve processing speed and image quality, the DIGIC II Image Processor provides markedly faster camera startup, autofocus and playback plus it assures that every image is more colorfully vibrant.
See it on the Big Screen
Bright and sharp, the camera's power-saving LCD screen measures a full 1.8 inches with a stunning 118,000 pixel resolution. With it, you can view your scene before and after you shoot it with extraordinary clarity. And when you're shooting at dusk or at night, the Night Display function lets you see the display clearly. It brightens the object by reducing the frame rate on the LCD screen.
Flexibility on the go
The PowerShot SD30 Digital ELPH includes a sleek new Camera Station that's functional and stylish at the same time. The Camera Station recharges the camera's battery at home or on the go, and allows image transfers to a PC, direct print functions, and AC-driven video output. Also included is a wireless remote control for playback and printing operations.
More varieties of Shooting Modes
With the PowerShot SD30 Digital ELPH, you get 16 Shooting Modes to capture every situation, including Canon's original My Colors Mode for customization. You can count on exact focus no matter where your subject is in the frame. You've got Shooting Modes including the Special Scene Mode that give you breathtaking, exhilarating pictures even when shooting conditions are tough. And you can both customize color reproduction and "touch up" color while you're shooting! Lighten skin tones, make the sky a more vivid blue, emphasize a single color and much more, all in real time as you monitor results on the LCD screen.
The Complete Print Solution
The PowerShot SD30 Digital ELPH's Print/Share button makes direct printing easier than ever. Simply connect the SD30 Digital ELPH's cradle to a Canon CP, SELPHY or PIXMA Photo Printer or any PictBridge compatible photo printer, press the lighted Print/Share button and print!
