Caution! Once you pick up this sweet Canon PowerShot SD4500 IS Digital ELPH Camera (Silver), you might give up your favorite reality show for the brilliant images you make yourself--with a 10MP sensor, 10x 36-360mm (equivalent) zoom lens that takes you from wide-angle to a super telephoto in a flash, and a bright 3" LCD display, this ELPH lives up to and surpasses its illustrious ELPH ancestors.
A DIGIC 4 Image Processor and sensitivity up to ISO 3200 makes it possible to capture beautiful pictures even in low light using programs like Handheld Night Scene and Best Image Selection (which takes 5 photos in rapid succession and picks the best). A vast range of shooting modes gives you the best possible photo for any given situation: Portrait, Kids & Pets, High-Speed Burst (shoots 8.8 frames/second), Smart Auto, Super Vivid (for the most saturated colors), Fisheye, Miniature, Beach, Foliage, Snow, Fireworks, Stitch Assist (for making awesome panoramas from 3 photos)--you get the picture, right?
On top of all these goodies, the SD4500 IS ELPH shoots magnificent 1920 x 1080 HD video and has a really cool slow motion function (recorded at 240 frames/second). And there's more, much more--after all, it's an ELPH.
