Canon Releases New Digital ELPH: the PowerShot SD4000 IS

Hot off the press, Canon USA has announced their PowerShot SD4000 IS, a high-end Digital ELPH camera. With an impressive feature set, the SD4000 IS looks to be a worthy competitor in the already flooded ultra-compact category.

Key features on the SD4000 include:
  • 10-megapixel, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor
  • Fast f/2.0 3.8x optical zoom lens
  • DIGIC 4 image processor
  • Large 3.0-inch LCD with wide viewing angle
  • 720p HD video recording
  • Smart Auto
  • Aperture and Shutter speed priority modes
  • Li-ion battery
  • SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC Plus card slot
  • MSRP of $349US
  • Three color options: Red, Black and Silver (Limited edition White body available directly from Canon USA)
The SD4000 IS should be hitting shelves later this month, and we'll be updating our Preview page once we get a unit in for testing.
