Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital ELPH

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital ELPH is an ultracompact JeansPocket™ Certified digital camera with a stylish, thin and flat metallic body following the "Standard & Comfort" design concept. It continues Canon’s tradition of providing top-tier imaging technology in a ultra-slim, ultra-compact and easy-to-use package.

The Canon SD600 has 6.0 megapixels resolution, 3x optical zoom on a high quality "UA" lens, a F2.8 maximum aperture, and an extra large 2.5-in. LCD with 173,000 pixels resolution.

The DIGIC II and iSAPS Technology allows for faster and more precise AF, AE and Auto White Balance, as well as faster response times. A High ISO Auto setting allows the use of a high ISO up to ISO 800 to reduce camera shake in low-light situations (albeit with increased noise).

The Canon Powershot SD600 Digital ELPH delivers high performance in an elegant and stylish ultra compact design.
