Product Description

Color: Silver

From the Manufacturer

Canon's iconic Elph design achieves a stunning new evolution with the PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph. Utterly simple edge lines and cut surfaces gleam subtly with high-grade finishes; now offered in a choice of silver or black and silver. Of course, style means little without substance, and here the SD750 Digital Elph more than delivers. 7.1 megapixels and DIGIC III create magnificent images, while exciting advanced technologies include Face Detection, Red-eye Correction, and time lapse movies. Always sized to go, the SD750 Digital Elph is now extra-durable, with a tough scratch-resistant coating on its anti-reflective, brilliantly colorful 3.0-inch LCD screen.

PowerShot SD750 Highlights

Stylish 7.1-megapixel Digital Elph with 3x optical zoom Certainly the PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph's design credentials and high-profile beauty are impossible to ignore. But a quick look beyond the iconic design reveals a camera seriously equipped for high-end performance.

Canon PowerShot SD750 Features and Highlights
1x zoom/3x zoom

The 7.1-megapixel CCD captures an extraordinary level of detail. Enlarge and crop as far as your vision takes you - you'll have all the detail you need for sharp, rich prints.

The camera's genuine Canon 3x optical zoom lens gives you all the benefits of Canon's legendary optics technologies along with the power to zoom in close. Expect clear, brilliant shots all through the zoom range.

DIGIC III image processor with improved Face Detection technology and Red-eye Correction With DIGIC III, you get images of superior quality, the camera functions at top efficiency and battery life is significantly enhanced. What's more, DIGIC III enables Canon's newly improved Face Detection technology and Red-eye Correction to give you better, more true-to-life people shots. Simply press the Shutter Button halfway down, and the PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph automatically pinpoints the faces in the scene and chooses the ideal focus point. To keep every face looking bright and natural - without scary red eyes - the camera controls exposure settings and flash, so every shot is just what you were shooting for.

Face Detection AF/AE finds multiple faces in the frame and sets the most suitable focus point when the shutter button is pressed halfway. And an additional new feature, Face Detection FE, adjusts the flash, based on a person's face on the screen. 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.
Canon PowerShot SD750 Features and Highlights
Face Detection in action

Red-Eye Correction detects and automatically corrects red-eye during playback for both regular and flash photography. In unusual cases where red-eye is not automatically detected, it can easily be corrected manually during playback mode from the LCD screen.

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.

Canon PowerShot SD750 Features and Highlights
Extra-large, high-resolution 3.0-inch PureColor LCD with scratch-resistant anti-reflection coating for easy on-camera viewing The camera's 3.0-inch LCD screen gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This extra-durable, high-resolution screen with tough scratch-resistant coating on the anti-reflective, PureColor LCD screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient. Clear and bright, it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.

ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto to reduce image blur and expand low-light shooting capability The PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph features new ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater flexibility for shooting.

Five movie modes including 30 fps VGA, Time Lapse and Fast Frame Rate With a highly flexible movie mode, you can create the movie that's perfect for any application. Select from VGA (640 x 480 pixels) and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels), with frame rates of 30 fps and 15 fps for recording up to 1 hour or 4GB. Also choose from Fast Frame Rate (QVGA; 320 x 240 pixels) recording at 60 fps for up to 1 minute, Compact Movie Mode (QQVGA; 160 x 120 pixels) recording at 15 fps for up to 3 minutes, and Time Lapse (640 x 480) recording at 1 or 2 sec. intervals. The PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph supports the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed standard, so you'll enjoy the fastest possible data transfer speeds when using a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed compatible computer.

Print/Share button for easy direct printing and downloading The PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph's Print/Share button makes direct printing easier than ever. Simply connect the SD750 Digital Elph to a Canon CP, Selphy or Pixma photo printer or any PictBridge compatible photo printer, press the lighted Print/Share button and print! Also use the Print/Share button to transfer images to a computer (Windows and Macintosh).

Print your own ID photos in 28 different sizes or use the Movie Print function to output multiple stills from a recorded movie on a single sheet with a Canon Selphy compact photo printer.

Direct photo printers For desktop large-format printing, try one of the direct photo printers that allow you to print without a computer in one of two ways: plug your compatible PowerShot camera into the direct photo printer using the supplied USB interface cable, or simply insert a memory card into the supplied adapter. You can also connect the printer to your computer for more options. Print high-resolution, borderless images as postcards or 8.5 x 11-inch sheets within minutes.

Compact photo printers Compact photo printers let you produce versatile, fun 4 x 6-inch postcards, 4 x 8-inch wide greeting cards or credit card size prints in just two easy steps: connect and press/print. Control the printer right from your camera's LCD screen. You get durable, dye-sublimated prints quickly with or without borders. Assorted paper types let you create mini or credit card size labels. You can even take select compact photo printers to a party or an outdoor picnic using an optional rechargeable battery.

Canon resumes its position at the top of all camera manufacturers. Their design, performance, and quality is hard to match. Now onto the camera:

I have shot around 4-5 Gigs worth of photos in various settings, so I have a good idea of what this camera has to offer. The features itself within the camera are excellent. Aside from increased megapixels, it's not much different than the SD700 except for some odd reason, Canon decided to opt out of the IS (Image Stabilization) feature. I almost gave it 4 stars based solely on that aspect. But other than that, the camera is brilliant.

For portraits and close-ups, the Face Detection feature is phenomenal which is a reflection of the new DIGIC III technology. The camera will lock in on the human face or multiple faces (I've locked in up to 8) and keep it in focus no matter where you move or pan the camera. And if you're shooting indoors or in low-light, the ISO can be set as high as 1600 so you have a lot of Flash Exposure control if you don't like that spotlight look when using the flash. There is also an Auto ISO setting which gives the user a lot of range to shoot. It will determine proper ISO setting and shutter speed and also will predict camera shake resulting in less blurry pictures. I guess this makes up for not having IS. :)

If you are a novice photographer and don't like to mess with ISO, aperture settings, and shutter speed variations this camera will fit your needs just fine. It has 17 shooting modes including "scene" modes for the different settings you may be shooting in such as the beach, fireworks, snow, portraits, night, etc. Fully automatic so any beginner can pick up this camera and shoot like a pro.

The most popular feature has to be the 3" LCD screen. It's ginormous.

Color Name: Silver
I just received the SD750 for my birthday (thanks Mom & Dad!). I've had it for several days and have taken over 3 hundred pictures and tons of video. It now replaces my old Canon S400, which was a replacement for my antique Canon S110. I've remained true to Canon because I can see the amount of work they have put into making each new generation of cameras "that much better." First, the colors are so much crisper on the SD750 than in prior models, although some tweeking may be needed, you can always find a setting to capture the color you are after. Second, the video quality is outstanding (at the highest setting, that is), and Canon finally took off the 3 minute cap to video recording to allow for longer videos. Also, at the highest setting only, you can zoom in and out while recording video. I love the 3 inch display that incorporates a shifting orientation so the picture is always upright. I do wish that the camera came with a more powerful optical zoom... but I imagine I'll get that with the next generation. And in the end, I have to emphasize, that this camera takes OUSTANDING pictures. That's what a camera should do, after all. Now for a quick rundown of improvements from previous models (for you Canon loyalists):

- Much improved color

- Faster picture taking and faster everything

- Extended video capacity (to however much memory ya got)

- Large LCD to appease the instant gratification generation

- Overall improved picture quality (clarity, color saturation)

A few small camera quirks outside of picture quality... the jog dial in back (trying to emulate iPod) is not the smartest addition and the "play" button is a little hard to hit at times. Overall, I definitely without hesitation recommend this camera.

I really enjoyed everything about this camera -- the pictures are great, the battery life excellent, the form-factor is terrific.

Until, that is... I got the dreaded "Lens Error, restart camera". The lens is stuck open & the camera is for all intents and purposes useless. I don't think I did anything to cause this, though it was in the bento box on my bike and might have tried to turn on in there, getting the lens stuck. Even if so, there's no reason that should kill the camera. I'm very disappointed.

There is a ton of discussion about Canon and the lens error online. Google "canon sd750 lens error" and enjoy your reading.

Color Name: Silver Verified Purchase
I see myself as a amature photo-junky, 1 or 2 steps above the casual camera user. I was debating on SD750 or Sony T-100. I finally purchased SD750 while my friend purchased the T100. Few days of playing with the SD750 and a quick look at the T100, Im happy with my decision.

First, let me say if you are not going to use all the functions on the camera, you cant' really go wrong with either one of them. Dependable and works fine in most situations.

Design, I think the T-100 looks more attractive, but after that I believe SD750 is better.

LCD Screen. both have 3inch LCD, but Canon has less glare and is more vivid. both gets fuzzy in low light situations, but lcd picture isnt what you get when u print.

Stability. T-100 has image stabilization to compensate for slower shutter speed. which helps, but i still like Canon's performance. It just takes better pictures on a constant basis. Canon seems to take better pictures in low light (indoor or dim light)

ZOOM. T100 has 5X and SD750 has 3X. to me zoom on a PNS has no meaning, because 90% of the time you arent taking a photo far away.

Battery. Both suck up battery quickly. but the T-100 seems to last longer than the SD750. I just bought another batter pack to compensate for short battery life. Sony Powershot T-100 on the down side. Takes something like 5 hours to fully Charge, while SD750 only takes me 1.5 hours.

Options. I think they have about the same amount of functions. IE portrait, macro, and what not. Although i havent read the T100 manual.

Video. Both take great video. But i think t-100 has a HD version. I like Canons because u can directly connect your camera to OP source and play it. I dont think T100 had that ability.
