Canon PowerShot SD780 IS (Digital IXUS 100 IS) prices and specs
The Canon PowerShot SD780 IS (Digital IXUS 100 IS) was released on Feb 18, 2009 and is on sale in USA for 248.99.
The Canon PowerShot SD780 IS (Digital IXUS 100 IS) belongs to the category of ultracompact cameras. Its main advantage is a very small size: the photographer can even put it in the pocket. The camera has different automatic modes but you won't get photographs of the same high quality in comparison to large sensor compact cameras.
The camera can take photos at 12 megapixels highest resolution. But if you want to get better picture quality the more important thing is a sensor size. This camera has a 1/2.3' (6.17 x 4.55 mm) sensor which means that the model will make photos with not so high quality as cameras with bigger sensors but instead it has another advantage - the PowerShot SD780 IS (Digital IXUS 100 IS) has portable size. And if you want to make photos of the best quality pay attention to Nikon D810.
The camera has max shutter speed of 1/1500 sec. It is not very fast shutter speed but anyway the owner of the camera will be able to make photos of moving objects. The photographer will be able to capture HD videos that guarantees a rather high picture quality.
The lens is built into the camera and the photographer won't be able to switch it. The lens has weak 3x optical zoom.
