Canon Powershot SD3500 is powerfull camera with ultra-wide-angle 24mm lens,3.5-inch touchscreen LCD, 5x-zoom shooter and many more….
Canon went a skipped a few thousand product numbers for this, the Powershot SD3500. Like other SD series camera, the picture quality is very good and does well in poor lighting. The ultra-wide-angle 24mm lens is a nice touch too. This also has a huge 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD, which is quite ample. That feature makes it quite pricey for a compact, 5x-zoom shooter; we’ve never been particularly impressed with any touchscreen models from any manufacturer, so we’re still skeptical about whether it’s worth the cost. The description sounds interesting. Settings can be controlled through a drag-and-drop interface and playback mode is controlled through screen taps.
Canon adds to its Digital ELPH line the new PowerShot SD3500 IS (known as Digital IXUS 210 in Europe and IXY 10S in Japan) digital camera. Equipped with a 14.1 Megapixel sensor, the SD3500 IS sports a 24mm ultra-wide angle lens with 5x Optical Zoom and a 3.5-inch PureColor II LCD touchscreen for intuitive operation, larger than SD980 IS‘s 3-inch touch display.
The Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS Digital Elph represents a significant milestone in the evolution of the ELPH series through the combination of superior image capture functionality and Canon’s touch screen technology. The camera’s large 3.5-inch wide LCD touch screen enables intuitive operation as users can customize their photo settings by simply dragging icons to their preferred on-screen location, then utilizing “tap” operations to switch between images during playback. A 24mm ultra-wide angle lens with 5x Optical Zoom gets more in your shot, like that family vacation at the Grand Canyon or the Empire State Building while Optical Image Stabilization ensure blur free images at full telephoto. The 14.1-Megapixel resolution delivers stunning images and the HD quality video further adds to the overall allure of this new PowerShot Digital camera.
From untimely blinks and awkward smirks to hard to shoot back-lit situations, the compact PowerShot SD3500 IS camera offers a variety of technologies to secure the best pictures under the most challenging conditions. In addition to the Face Detection self-timer, the new Smart Shutter scene mode now has Smile and Wink self-timers where the camera looks for a wink or smile which will act as the trigger and release the camera’s shutter.
The advances to Canon’s Smart Auto mode increases the number of shooting scenarios where the Canon SD3500 IS can automatically adjust to different lighting or movement levels to obtain the best image possible. In addition, Canon’s Smart FE (Flash Exposure) function improves image quality by automatically adding the optimum level of flash illumination, aperture, ISO and shutter speed while the Low Light Mode features a wide ISO range (up to 6400), allowing more light to be captured creating sharper more vivid images and further enhancing the overall quality.
The new Canon PowerShot SD3500IS is designed for consumers seeking a blend of eye-catching style and advanced image capture technology in a compact, easy-to-use form,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon USA. “Offering a unique blend of features and functionality including new Scene Modes, Smart FE and Smart Shutter, Canon once again brings image-taking and personal photography expression to new levels.
For users interested in expanding beyond still images, the Canon SD3500 IS has the ability to shoot 720p High Definition (HD) video offering extraordinary resolution and clarity when capturing moments such as a child’s dance recital or the latest trip to the local zoo. Also, the built-in HDMI mini-connector allows play-back of video and photos on an HDTV. With the camera tethered to a computer and the included software, movies can be uploaded directly to YouTube via the Camera Window. To further enhance a users ability to capture images and video, the Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS Digital Elph will support the high-spec SDXC memory cards with a maximum storage capacity of two terabytes (TB) in SDA standard.
Available in three elegant color variations, black, silver and pink, the Canon SD3500 IS is also compatible with Eye-Fi memory cards for wireless transfer of video and photo files to PCs. The Canon PowerShot SD3500IS is scheduled to be available in late February for an estimated retail price of $329.99.
