Canon Powershot 800 IS Digital Camera( NB-5L)

After the Canon PowerShot SD900 lets now look at the Canon PowerShot SD800 IS Digital ELPH which has been tagged as Simple, Sophisticated and Image Stabilized. The new SD800 IS the top model in the Canon Digital ELPH IS series and offer users a more than satisfactory Seven Megapixel resolution. The new SD800 has the shift-type stabilization system which has designed keeping in mind the diminutive size of the digicam.

The SD800 IS includes a 3.8x optical zoom lens with a focal length of 4.6"17.3 mm (35 mm film equivalent 28"105 mm), f/2.8"f/5.8 and the DIGIC III Imaging Processor ensures top notch performance. The digicam promises to shine through in low light and other difficult shooting conditions via the onboard optical IS and a top ISO speed of 1600.This one too sports the Canon perpetual curve design and the camera just measures 2.28 inches high and 3.52 inches long! So small is not always bad!
