The Canon PowerShot SD780 IS Digital Elph Digital Camera provides a 12.1 megapixel resolution and a 3x Optical Zoom lens with Canon's renowned Optical Image Stabilization system to produce excellent image quality, even under low light shooting conditions. The camera incorporates the exclusive DIGIC 4 image processor which offers impressive response times and also powers Canon's unique Face Detection and Noise Reduction Technologies, making it easier for users to capture sharp, well-exposed images in any shooting situation. Furthermore, the 2.5" PureColor II LCD display has a tough scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coating featuring Night Display for easy viewing in low light. The camera also has a real-image optical viewfinder, that zooms along with the lens. With all of these premium features, the PowerShot SD780 IS Digital Elph is also incredibly slim, measuring only 0.8" (21 mm) deep, and possesses a clean, minimalist design that evokes the classic Canon Elph film camera.
12.1 Megapixel Resolution
The 12.1 megapixel resolution of the SD780 IS Digital Elph ensures that images are captured with all the detail needed for large photo quality prints
3x Optical Zoom Lens
The genuine Canon 3x optical zoom lens on the SD780 produces images with all the clarity and brilliance you'd expect from a world leader in advanced optics technology. The 3x zoom range can handle most typical shooting situations while the 4x digital zoom is included to get extra close with a combined zoom rage of 12x
Optical Image Stabilizer Technology
The lens of the SD780 is equipped with Canon's acclaimed Optical Image Stabilizer Technology that automatically detects and corrects for camera shake so you'll get steady, crisp, brilliant images - under just about any shooting conditions
Slim, Stylish Design
The SD780 IS has a chic, modern, minimalist design akin to the classic Canon Elph film cameras, with a classic Box & Circle design
DIGIC 4 Processor
Delivering fast, responsive camera performance and superb image rendering, the DIGIC 4 processor also enables Canon's Face Detection Technology and Red-eye Correction to give you better, more true-to-life people shots. Furthermore, the processor incorporates iSAPS scene-recognition technology using an internal database of thousands of different photos to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance
Face Detection Technology
Canon's powerful Face Detection Technology delivers impressive results - simply press the Shutter Button halfway down, and the camera automatically pinpoints the faces in the scene and chooses the ideal focus point. The camera controls exposure settings and flash to keep every face looking bright and natural. The SD780 IS also adds Face Detection White Balance - calculating white balance for the best possible skin tones. Furthermore, the Face Select and Track features lets the SD780 IS Digital ELPH user highlight one face among several in a scene, and the camera concentrates on that person, even as they move around the scene
Face Self-Timer
The innovative Face-Self Timer makes getting into your picture easier than ever. With this mode engaged, the camera automatically detects any increase in the number of faces, makes the appropriate exposure adjustments and snaps the shot when that face stops moving, Now there is no need for the photographer to rush into a group shot- just put the camera on a stand or tripod, and the camera will wait for the photographer and all of the others in the shot to get on-camera before it takes the shot. In addition, the camera's motion detection system now tracks moving subjects in a much larger range, and the Servo AF retains focus on a moving subject for the perfect shot, without the need to refocus
Advanced Red-eye Correction
Canon's Red-eye Correction system lets you handle Red-eye problems in two ways. The Red-eye Correction can be applied during shooting by using the Face Detection Technology to recognize and remove red-eye from flash images as they're taken, before the file is written to the memory card. It's also possible to correct red-eye during image playback, using simple settings in the cameras menu
Intelligent Contrast Correction
The DIGIC 4 processor enables Canon's exclusive i-Contrast (Intelligent Contrast Correction) system, which brightens dark areas while leaving bright areas unchanged for more natural looking images, even in bright daylight where shadow details can be lost. Users can even apply i-Contrast in playback mode to adjust images that were shot without the setting activated
High ISO Sensitivity
The PowerShot SD780 features ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto setting (equivalent to ISO 3200) that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, or when shooting fast-moving subjects, giving you greater flexibility for shooting
Shoot & View Video in HD
The PowerShot SD780 IS can record high definition video (1280 x 720@ 30 fps), as well as standard and low resolution video. The camera can also play back video and still images onto an HDTV with the purchase of an optional mini-HDMI connector so you can enjoy HD video and images with no degradation of the image or sound quality. In addition the HD output allows users to view up to 130 still images at once in a thumbnail view so you can quickly find your favorite shot
20 Shooting Modes and My Colors Photo Effects
The PowerShot SD780 has 20 easy-to-use shooting modes including a wide selection of Special Scene modes such as Portrait, Indoor and Night Snapshot, and you can quickly access these modes via the Touch Control Dial. The camera also includes My Colors photo effects, which allow artistic photo effects like color accent and color swap to be applied in-camera both during and after shooting
Smart Auto Mode
The Smart Auto mode intelligently selects from 18 predefined shooting modes to match the camera settings to the needs of your intended scene. With Smart Auto, you can completely concentrate on your subject knowing that the camera has optimized all of the settings for you, and you can be confident that you're getting beautiful, memorable images
High-Resolution 2.5" PureColor II LCD
The 2.5" LCD screen provides vivid, high-resolution viewing and is protected by a scratch-resistant anti-reflection coating for easy on-camera viewing. Whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images, the PureColor LCD screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient
