Your camera says a lot about you - and according to Canon's new PowerShot SD940 IS, you're into hot design and cool technology. Emerging from your jeans pocket or purse like a sleek little jewel, the PowerShot SD940 IS makes a statement before you even take a picture. And the new menu ensures easy access to all its advanced Canon technology, where 12 Megapixels, improved Smart AUTO Mode and 720p HD movies are just the beginning
It's so easy to have the PowerShot SD940 IS on hand wherever you go. Sized to fit anywhere from your jeans pocket to your smallest handbag, you'll never miss another photo op. All those imitators out there can't begin to capture the design icon status of a Canon ELPH. New for the PowerShot SD940 IS: smooth lines and brilliant simplicity are rendered in four memorable metallics. Canon's commitment to innovation defines the excitement of the PowerShot SD940 IS. 12.1 Megapixel resolution is more than a number, it's your cutting-edge link to the outstanding clarity and quality you've always wanted in your images. Think bold and big, because razor-sharp oversized prints are a breeze. Get the picture? It's absolutely brilliant.
The PowerShot SD940 IS has a 4x Optical Zoom lens that makes it easy to get the inspiring, emotive close-ups that will make your images lasting keepsakes. This magnificent lens gives you the power to shoot distant subjects with razor-sharp precision and stunning lifelike color. So you can brilliantly capture a closer shot of a landscape, or a child's big smile.
The PowerShot SD940 IS is equipped with Canon's acclaimed Optical Image Stabilizer Technology that automatically detects and corrects camera shake-one of the leading causes of fuzzy or blurred shots. Even when zoomed in, you can get the steady, crisp, brilliant images you'll be proud to shoot and share. And Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer Technology is so convenient to use. It functions perfectly with or without a flash.
The PowerShot SD940 IS lets you record video in beautiful high definition (1,280 x 720 pixels). The camera also makes it easy to enjoy HD movies (and still photos) on your HDTV with a mini-HDMI connector for direct connection to a high-definition monitor or TV. You'll enjoy the HD experience with no degradation of image or audio in the signal, plus the ability to display up to 130 thumbnailsat once.
Improved Smart AUTO Mode intelligently selects the proper settings for the camera based on 22 predefined shooting situations.
Overall great, but don't expect miracles in low light
One can take a shot in auto and then quickly switch to manual if necessary to make any corrections.
Buy it, well worth it.
I bought this camera for the g/f. She needed small purse friendly shoot with decent battery life. The picture quality is pretty good on this very small camera. For those with larger hands, this camera might not be as user friendly. I don't recommend this camera if you have high expectations for low light shooting environments. Picture file size is very usable.
I am not a technical writer for cameras and don't understand allot of it. But, I do know it is difficult to put everything you want in as small a package as an ELPH. With all the ELPH cameras out there it was a difficult choice for this neophyte. On a casual level of photo taking we are very happy with it and the HD video is awesome. The size of the LCD is amazing and the features it offers is remarkable for our use. Good value and and the price was the best.
