by Reads (18)

Canon launched the SD4000 IS Digital ELPH this morning calling it the first HS or “High Sensitivity” compact Canon camera. Some of the most interesting features include a bright f/2.0 lens, manual controls over aperture and shutter speed, and a burst shooting rate of up to 8.4 fps.

At the heart of the HS system is a 10 megapixel Back-Illuminated CMOS sensor. Sony and Nikon recently introduced cameras featuring a similar sensor, touting its ability to gather more light than a traditional CMOS. The SD4000 IS is also equipped with a DIGIC IV image processor.

HD movie recording is available as well as a 240 fps slow motion movie mode. These movie files are played back at 30 fps. Also available to the SD4000 IS user are a 3.0-inch LCD and a 3.8x optically stabilized zoom lens. It will accept SD/SDHC memory cards as well as new SDXC memory cards.

Pricing and availability
The Canon PowerShot SD4000 IS will be available in red, black, silver, and a limited edition white. It will retail for $349.99.
