Canon announces SD4000 IS Digital ELPH digital camera with Super Slow Motion movie function
The new Canon powerhouse point-and-shoot camera- SD4000 IS Digital ELPH camera is the first of the Digital ELPH series to offer a high-sensitivity system, known as Canon’s HS SYSTEM, with a CMOS sensor and bright f/2.0 lens. The new 10-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, in conjunction with the DIGIC 4 image processor creates Canon’s HS SYSTEM to enhance image quality in low-light situations and helps reduce noise at high ISO speeds. The PowerShot SD4000 IS has the fastest high-speed burst rate to date in a Canon PowerShot Digital ELPH camera with 8.4 frames per second (fps). New to the ELPH cameras, the PowerShot SD4000 IS has aperture and shutter controls allowing for enhanced flexibility and creative control. A 3.0-inch wide angle (28mm equivalent) wide screen LCD allows for easy on-camera previewing and reviewing of menus and images. A 3.8X optical zoom with optical image stabilization helps to ensure images will be clear and how they were meant to be captured.
The PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH camera also has high definition (HD) movie-shooting capabilities and a new Super Slow Motion movie function. The Super Slow Motion movie function captures a subject at 240 frames-per-second (fps), and later plays back the footage at 30 fps, allowing each moment of footage to be appreciated in super slow motion while maintaining great image quality.
A treat for the eyes, the Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS has beautifully crafted curves, texture and a modern look that appeals to a design-savvy user. The new Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS is available in three different color variations: red, black and silver. In addition, while supplies last, there will be an exclusive, limited edition white PowerShot SD4000 IS model. Scheduled to be available at the end of May, the Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS Digital ELPH camera retails for an estimated price of $349.99.
