From its ultra-thin design to its high resolution, high performance features, the PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph is like no other digital camera. Compact and easy to use, its softly flowing metal body is richly appointed with coating. It's a camera as beautiful as the pictures it creates.
High-resolution elegance and an impressive zoom
The ultra-sleek, ultra-slim 4.0-megapixel PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph comes with a 3x optical zoom and 3.6x digital for an 11x combined zoom. This makes the camera as stylish as it is powerful and allows it to deliver the resolution to create stunning prints and on-screen images. The optical zoom makes brilliant close-ups effortlessly easy.
New large 2.0-inch LCD screen for easy image preview and playback
Though its body is superbly slim, the PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph has an oversized 2.0-inch LCD screen that makes it easy to frame and play back your scene.
Impressively small, surprisingly powerful
The PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph's UA lens features a glass-molded aspherical design with an ultra-high refractive index. The advantage? You get exquisitely sharp and colorful images from a 3x zoom lens that's smaller than previous 2x zooms.
Canon's latest imaging technology enhances picture quality
The PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph is the first in the PowerShot line to incorporate Canon's new DIGIC II Image Processor. Designed to improve processing speed and image quality, the DIGIC II processor provides markedly faster camera startup, autofocus, and playback, plus it assures that every image is more colorfully vibrant.
Selectable movie recording speeds
The PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph is the first digital camera to let you shoot in a Fast Frame Rate Movie at 60 frames per second with full motion video (320x240), so you can capture fast-moving subjects. The camera also gives you the option of 30 frames per second (640x480) for general shooting. For e-mail attachments, select the compact movie setting.

The PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph lets you take as much or as little control as you like.
