Canon PowerShot SD980 IS 12.4 Megapixels Digital Camera In Silver, Model SD980IS

Canon's Got the Touch.
Canon's iconic ELPH has always been a show-off, with the looks and smarts that make you want to carry it out in the open for everyone to see. The PowerShot SD980 IS takes the concept even further with Canon's first-ever touch panel interface. The camera that invented sleek and slim is equipped with a huge 3-inch PureColor System LCD screen that responds to your touch, delivering operation that's as natural and intuitive as cutting-edge technology should be. Four opulent color options are the icing on the cake.

Features:

  • Large 3.0-inch wide touch panel PureColor System LCD with a cool cutting-edge interface, plus an updated Active Display for quickly switching between images during playback with a shake of the camera.
  • Get more in your shot with a 5x Optical Zoom with ultra-wide 24mm lens, plus Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer and 12 Megapixels for amazing resolution and editing.
  • 720p HD movie shooting capability plus HDMI output connector for easy playback of video and photos on your HDTV.
  • Optimize your personality with four opulent colors: Silver, Blue, Purple, and Gold.
  • Improved Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper settings for the camera based on 22 predefined shooting situations.
