Canon Powershot SD300 4MP Digital Elph Camera with 3x Optical Zoom
From the Manufacturer
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.
Expand the creative ideas
The PowerShot SD300 Digital Elph lets you take as much or as little control as you like. Nine preset modes allow you to handle even tough shooting conditions with confidence, and new scene modes including Digital Macro Mode widen your shooting capabilities. Or you can select manual and do everything yourself.
The camera chooses all the settings so you can concentrate on your subject.
The ultimate in creative control, you set aperture and shutter speed.
Build inspiring panoramas by neatly aligning sequential images.
Shoot larger-than-life close-ups with one-button simplicity.
The camera sets a large aperture, focuses the subject, and artistically blurs the background to make your subject pop.
Capture people against a softly glowing night background without a tripod.
Kids & Pets
Shoot moving subjects without losing your chance to get those unforgettable moments.
Improves natural color and reduces camera shake while shooting under artificial light.
Achieve natural-looking color even when shooting underwater.
One-button downloading and printing plus ID Photo Print and Movie Print
The SD300's Print/Share Button makes direct printing easier than ever. Simply connect the SD300 to a Canon Direct Photo Printer or PictBridge supported printer, press the Print/Share Button, and print! Also use the Print/Share Button to transfer images directly to a computer (Windows).
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 using any Canon Compact Photo Printer.

What I liked:
0. Great, well exposed pictures that make great prints.
1. Excellent macro -- 3cm! This is better than the SD400 or SD500
2. DIGIC II processor really works well to quickly and accurately get well focused images....way better than the previous DIGIC 1 processor.
3. Movie mode is excellent. The length of the movie (with sound) is only limited by the SD care size
What I did not like:
1. Poor flash. Now, this is not a dig against the SD300 only, rather a comment on the fact that ultracompacts do not function very well for indoor flash photography...although an external flash the HFDC1, is available.
This camera is well worth the cost. I got mine from Amazon for 300 bucks and it has performed flawlessly. I would say that it is a good idea to READ THE MANUAL as it will dramatically improve one's pictures. I would also get a high speed SD card so that movies can be easily recorded.
For what it's worth, I know that others have had problems with the screen cracking. I have taken this camera on hikes, etc. without any case, just in my pocket, with no problems.
Buy this camera, you won't regret it.
I recommend you buy another battery so when vacationing and or on outings, you'll have another on hand. As you know, the battery always gets low during inconvenient time(s). There have been many times, it's given out but luckily my backup battery is always on hand. :-)
