Canon Powershot SD780 IS 12MP Digital ELPH Camera (Silver)

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty

Instant impressions. Lasting memories.
It may be the slimmest Digital ELPH Canon has ever created, but the impact couldn't be bigger. The PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH captivates the senses with bold saturated colors and a daringly original design that matches the intensity of Canon's most innovative camera technology. Even when picture-taking conditions seem pretty unforgiving, you've got Canon on your side. So the shots you used to miss are the images you'll now be sharing, and the movies you never took before will be HD unforgettable.

Ultra slim and ultra hip design in 4 colors: Red, Black, Silver and Gold.
It takes meticulous engineering to create a camera so slim and stylish and so impressively equipped with Canon's most advanced camera features. It takes a decisive spirit to decide which color is the real you. Uninhibited splashes of Red, Black, Silver and Gold define a new generation of camera design - cool, assured and ready to hit the road with loads of fashion impact. The PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH will be your fave fashion accessory. Sleek enough to tuck anywhere. Bold enough to be the center of attention.

Compact yet feature rich with 12.1 Megapixel resolution, 3x Optical Zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilizer.
Canon's commitment to innovation defines the excitement of the PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH. 12.1-megapixel resolution is more than a number, it's your cutting-edge link to the outstanding clarity and quality you've always wanted in your images. Think bold and big, because razor-sharp oversized prints are a breeze. Get the picture? It's absolutely brilliant.

The PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH has a 3x optical zoom lens that makes it easy to get the inspiring, emotive close-ups that will make your images lasting keepsakes. This magnificent lens gives you the power to shoot distant subjects with razor-sharp precision and stunning lifelike color. So you can brilliantly capture a closer shot of a landscape, or a child's big smile.

The PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH is equipped with Canon's acclaimed Optical Image Stabilizer Technology that automatically detects and corrects camera shake - one of the leading causes of fuzzy or blurred shots. Even when zoomed in, you can get the steady, crisp, brilliant images you'll be proud to shoot and share. And Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer Technology is so convenient to use. It functions perfectly with or without a flash.

HD movie shooting capability plus HDMI output for easy playback of video and photos on your HDTV.
The PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH lets you record video in beautiful high definition (1280 x 720 pixels). The camera also makes it easy to enjoy HD movies (and still photos) on your HDTV with a mini-HDMI connector for direct connection to a high-definition monitor. You'll enjoy the HD experience with no degradation of image or audio in the signal, plus the ability to display up to 130 still images at once.

Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper settings for the camera based on 18 predefined shooting situations.
Just set the Canon PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH to Smart AUTO and you're ready for maximum enjoyment from your picture-taking every time. It's a relaxing and satisfying way to shoot because you can completely concentrate on your subject knowing that the camera has the technical details covered. Advanced Canon technology intelligently analyzes your situation and shooting conditions. Then it automatically selects an appropriate setting from 18 specially defined settings. So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset, or your friends at the park, you can be confident that you're getting dramatic, memorable images.

Shooting Modes
Advanced presets for the best possible photos under certain conditions. With 20 Shooting Modes, you're ready for whatever shot comes your way.

Large, crisp 2.5-inch PureColor LCD II and wide viewing angle.
The PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH gives you a large 2.5-inch LCD screen for excellent control when framing your shots. Canon's PureColor LCD II offers spectacular color, resolution and contrast even when viewed at an angle. The screen is highly durable and easy to see in any light with a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective coating. It also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light - a perfect feature for gathering friends and family around to see your images.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor has evolved Face Detection Technology that tracks the faces of moving subjects and lets the shooter enter the frame seamlessly with the Face Detection Self-timer.
Canon's most advanced image processor, DIGIC 4, delivers evolved Face Detection Technology that keeps every face in every photo looking its very best. The technology finds and tracks the faces of moving subjects until you're ready to shoot, then delivers perfect focus. In addition, exposure, flash and white balance are compensated, so that faces exhibit natural skin tones and backgrounds are properly exposed.

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 advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

A Face Detection Self-timer automatically detects an increase in the number of faces and makes the appropriate adjustments. For instance, to include the photographer's face in a group shot, there's no need to rush in. Just put the camera on a stand or tripod, specify Face Detection Self-timer, and the camera will wait for the photographer's face to get on-camera before it takes the shot. Motion Detection tracks moving subjects in a much larger range, and the Servo AF retains focus on a moving subject after the shutter button is pressed halfway - allowing you to wait for the perfect shot without refocusing.

Intelligent Contrast Correction
DIGIC 4 also makes possible the i-Contrast (Intelligent Contrast Correction) system, which controls the compensation level in pixel units to brighten dark areas while leaving bright areas unchanged for better images where the main subject is dark, and more natural transition. The PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH can even use i-Contrast in playback mode to adjust images that were shot without the setting activated.

Red-eye Correction provides three options for removing red-eye from subjects in flash pictures.
1) Red-eye Correction during shooting actually identifies and corrects red-eye in human subjects as pictures are taken.
2) The PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH can be set to automatically detect and correct red-eye during image playback.
3) You can manually locate any red eyes in a scene during image playback on the LCD screen, and command the camera to remove them.

Life doesn't give you second chances to capture special times. That's why the PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH features an ISO 1600 setting that reduces the effects of camera shake and sharpens subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater shooting flexibility. ISO can be expanded to 3200 when you select ISO 3200 Special Scene mode.

1 out of 5 stars   Horrible Pictures
By Mike (Birmingham, AL) June 14, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SD780 IS 12MP Digital ELPH Camera (Silver) (CNPSSD780ISS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Body Color
Cons: Poor Image Stabilization, Poor Flash, Poor Image Quality
Other Comments: I was very disappointed in this camera. The video looks great and works well, but the picture quality is horrible. My cell phone takes better pictures. I tried using the auto function, as well as different scenes (outdoors, indoors, etc..) but the pictures all turn out blurry or grainy. I returned this camera and bought a Panasonic which is much better.
