Canon Powershot S410 Review
Click to take a QTVR tour of the S410
The PowerShot S410's other key attributes are a peak resolution of 2272 x 1704 pixels, a 3x (36-108mm equivalent) all glass, seven-element, Canon zoom lens with a wide AF range from 2 inches (in macro mode) to infinity. The PowerShot S410 also records movies with sound at 15 frames per second for clips of up to three-minutes each at 320 x 240 or 160 x 120 resolution.
The PowerShot S410 also offers simple yet sophisticated shooting features such as Evaluative, Center-weighted or Spot metering for more precise exposure control; shutter speeds ranging from 15 seconds to a fast 1/2000 of a second; a user adjustable exposure compensation feature that allows for and increase or decrease of up to two stops in gradual 1/3 increments, and a Custom White Balance option that is read off of a white or known neutral object. Like the new Powershot S500, the S410 camera utilized Compact Flash type 1 media and features a 10x zoom capability on playback using the camera's 1.5 inch, 118,000 pixel LCD monitor.
An Intelligent Orientation sensor detects whether an image has been recorded horizontally or vertically. During image playback, the sensor detects the proper orientation of each image, and previews them accordingly without the need to rotate the camera for image viewing. It also adjusts AF, AE and white balance accordingly. Similarly, when using the ZoomBrowser EX and ImageBrowser software included with the cameras, vertical and horizontal picture orientation is automatically detected and appropriately displayed.
When powered down, the lens is safely tucked away inside of the highly durable stainless steel body that measures just 3.4 x 2.2 x 1.1 inches. This is truly a "pocket size" camera and at a scant 6.5 ounces. As with all the Canon compacts, it has a light-assisted autofocus that even works in the dark. An advanced TTL AiAF nine-point autofocus system permits the camera to automatically select the primary subject even when off-center.
