If you are looking for a feature-rich, image-stabilized, point-and-shoot camera for capturing exciting moments with your family and friends, then you have to consider getting the Canon PowerShot SD890 IS Digital Camera. This camera is a young member of Canonâ€™s already impressive Digital Elph family.
The digital camera is designed to replace the SD850 IS and features a 5X optical zoom, 2.5-inch PureColor II LCD screen, and a 37â€“185mm equivalent lens. It can capture macro images as close as 2cm away, and consistently deliver high-resolution nature shots, close-ups and even landscapes and sceneries.
Easily fits into the Palm of your Hand
Although a bit thicker, this Canon digital camera offer is very light and has smaller dimensions than a credit card. It is distinctly designed to have a noticeable curve at the end of it which its SD850 brethren lack.
This newer Digital Elph model has a number of other features that all work with the primary goal of delivering excellent image quality and user convenience.
The enhanced optical image stabilizer (IS) detects and corrects slight camera shakes that can cause image blur. Now, taking shots in low-light conditions or when vibrations are more severe are dramatically improved. The improved IS boasts increased sensitivity to vibration caused by a rocking boat or a shaky hand. Motion detection technology works with the IS to reduce both noise and blur.
Face detection technology, meanwhile, works to provide accurate, natural-looking shots of people in all situations. This feature enables the camera to detect up to nine faces. After a face is detected, the camera automatically selects the proper white balance, flash setting, and needed exposure. Red eye is automatically corrected while shooting as well.
Additionally, the PowerShot SD890 IS Digital Camera has been carefully designed to deliver quality performance for up to 320 shots per battery charge. A 32MB Memory Card has been included, though for greater convenience, the stylish camera is compatible with SD/SDHC Memory, MultiMedia, MMC Plus, and HC MMC Plus cards. This camera is definitely both user friendly and versatile, because of its multi-control dial that allows you to simply switch between shooting modes, settings, and even images during playback. Mode icons that are displayed on the screen are easily understandable, too.
Compared with the older PowerShot models, Auto focus is now more enhanced when using the camera in darker conditions. The improved autofocus feature offers more options when shooting a particular scene. Images are indeed promising to be free of noticeable movement because the new technologies allow the lens to move to compensate for the shake.
Gratitude is in order for Canonâ€™s DIGIC III, or DIGital Imaging Core image processor. It manages all of the PowerShot SD890 IS Digital Cameraâ€™s primary functions to optimize operating efficiency. Thanks to this processor, you get great image detail and color reproduction, an accurate white balance, high-speed processing, and advanced noise reduction and face detection, for enjoyable hours of continuous shooting.
The Canon PowerShot SD890 IS Digital Camera is therefore one of the smartest, most stylish compact digital cameras to take with you anywhere you go. Get one now and start capturing those exciting moments with your family and friends.
