Digital Camera : Canon Power shot SD900

Canon Power shot SD900 is one of the hot picks in this holiday shopping season. Here is a short note about the main features available in this camera.

  • Compact, stylish case with rounded horizontal edges and a retracting lens to make it pocket-friendly.
  • 10-megapixel resolution.
  • 3x optical zoom / 4x digital zoom
  • Auto focus, auto and manual exposure
  • JPEG file format
  • Movie mode with sound
  • It offers 30fps VGA movie capture or XGA (1,024x768) movies at 15fps.
  • Can record up to 3 minutes of 1024 x 768 (15 fps) video; can also record at 640 x 480 (30 fps) until 4GB file size or 1 hour time limit is reached
  • 2.5-inch LCD, with 230,000 pixels.
  • Secure Digital card storage (32MB card included)
  • Lithium-ion battery, 230 shots per charge.
  • 6.7 ounces and 1.1 inches thick.
  • Moderately fast shooter. After waiting 1.3 seconds from power-on to first shot, we managed to snap one photo every 2.3 seconds.
  • Low light performance with a high ISO of 1,600 plus a scene mode that shoots a small image size at ISO 3,200, too. It's a wonder they put a flash on this thing..
  • They included Face Detection ability. Half press the shutter and the SD900 will show a focus target on the nearest face it finds.
  • USB 2.0 High speed support
