The Canon PowerShot SD30 Digital ELPH is a beautifully designed digital camera that will feel at ease in those special occasion events. Available in 4 metallic finishes, this camera is more than a fashion item and also takes great pictures with ease. Flash portrait pictures come out very pleasant.

The Canon SD30 is ultra compact in size, and its smooth design makes it fit easily into a jeans pocket or small purse. Handling is very good thanks to an elongated shape which gives adequate room space for the right fingers to get a good grip. There is no viewinder, but the 1.8-in. LCD is quite clear with a good refresh rate for a smooth display.

The camera is quite fast, starting up in just above 1 sec., and shot-to-shot time is also about 1 sec. There is no practical shutter lag. Autofocus is precise and quick even in low-light thanks to a very effective AF-assist Illuminator. 16 Shooting Modes ensure that most picture-taking situations are automated.

The Canon PowerShot SD30 comes with a Camera Station that is very handy to recharge the battery and transfer images to your computer. A remote controller is also provided and can be used when the camera is on the station.
