Wide-angle 28-105mm (35mm equivalent) 3.8x optical zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer technology
|3.8x optical zoom in action|
Engineered with Canon's sophisticated wide-angle 3.8x zoom lens with integrated Image Stabilizer technology, the SD800 IS Digital Elph gives you the "shake-free" performance that makes your pictures sharp and clear. No matter how close you zoom in, the SD800 IS Digital Elph keeps everything stable. All you have to think about is your subject. DIGIC III Image Processor with Face Detection technology
The DIGIC III Image Processor is the latest advancement to Canon's proprietary DIGIC technology, delivering superior image quality, ultra-responsive performance and extended battery life. DIGIC III provides a speedier interface for the SD800 IS Digital Elph's SD memory card, as well as higher definition for its LCD monitor.
|Face Detection makes it easy to snap the perfect picture|
DIGIC III also empowers new Face Detection AF/AE, which finds all the faces in the frame and sets the most suitable focus point, when the shutter button is depressed half-way. Exposure and flash are controlled to ensure proper illumination of both the faces and the overall scene, eliminating the common problem of darkened or overexposed faces.
iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC III Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.
