Canon Powershot SD110 Review

Click to take a QTVR tour of the SD110
The SD110 is a pocket-sized digital photo powerhouse, measuring 3.3 x 2.2 x 0.9 in.(85x56x23.9mm) and weighing a mere 5.8 ounces without battery or SD card. It packs a 3.2 megapixel imager and a superb all-glass Canon 2x (35-70mm equivalent) optical zoom lens (with a cross-section smaller than a dime) and a close focusing capability of 3.9 inches in macro mode. The SD110 also features the same level of shooting options as the advanced PowerShot cameras and records high resolution 640 x 480 movies with sound up to 30 seconds and up to three minutes at lower 320 x 240 and 160 x 120 resolutions. The SD110 uses Canon's proprietary DIGIC Image Processor to achieve higher picture quality and improve existing camera features. In addition, the SD110 uses Canon's exclusive iSAPS (Intelligent Scene Analysis based on Photographic Space) technology to enhance the speed and performance of the camera's autofocus, auto exposure and auto white balance functions while a 9-point AiAF autofocus system makes focusing quick and easy, even with off-center subjects.
