Refined and stylish 8.0 Megapixel Digital ELPH with 3x Optical Zoom and Optical Image Stabilizer.
With 8.0-megapixel technology at its heart, PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital ELPH brings you high resolution images that maintain their sharpness and vivid impact even when they''re enlarged and cropped. The 3x Optical Zoom is a clear winner when it comes to getting up close and personal. And Canon''s invaluable Optical Image Stabilizer reduces the blur of camera movement, even in tricky low light situations.
Enhanced Canon Face Detection Technology automatically sets focus, exposure, flash and white balance for greater shooting freedom.
Canon''s powerful Face Detection Technology delivers even better results with the new SD1100 IS Digital ELPH. The Face Detection Technology continues to recognize faces in a scene, and concentrate exposure (daylight or flash) and focus upon them. But the SD1100 IS Digital ELPH adds more: Face Detection WB means the camera concentrates upon faces when calculating white balance, for the best possible skin tones. Face Select and Track lets the SD1100 IS Digital ELPH user highlight one face among several in a scene, and the camera concentrates on that person, even as they move around the scene. And Face Detection Technology is a powerful contributing factor in Canon''s new Motion Detection Technology.
Motion Detection Technology automatically reduces blur by calculating subject movement and selecting ideal exposure and ISO settings.
Life doesn''t stand still for picture-taking. That''s why Canon included its advanced Motion Detection Technology in the PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital ELPH. This sophisticated feature works in the background to instantly evaluate how fast your subject is moving. Then it automatically selects and sets the optimal exposure and ISO settings to keep everything looking sharp and clear. When you need higher ISOs for action-stopping shutter speeds, Motion Detection Technology provides it. But when no movement is detected, it allows lower ISOs for excellent color and detail. So whether you"re shooting a bride walking down the aisle, a ballet recital or even a child''s soccer game, you can relax and shoot with confidence knowing you''ve got the picture you intended.
2.5-inch PureColor LCD II for bright, accurate color with better viewing from wide angles.
The PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital ELPH gives you large 2.5-inch LCD screen for excellent control when framing your shots. Canon''s PureColor LCD II offers more spectacular color, resolution and contrast even when viewed at an angle (compared to PureColor LCD). The screen is highly durable and easy to see in any light with a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective coating. It also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light-a perfect feature for gathering friends and family around to see your images.
DIGIC III Image Processor for sharper images and improved functionality.
With DIGIC III, your images boast superior quality, the camera operates at top efficiency and battery life is enhanced. What''s more, DIGIC III enables Canon''s Face Detection Technology and Red-eye Correction to give you better, more true-to-life people shots. Simply press the Shutter Button halfway down, and the camera automatically pinpoints the faces in the scene and chooses the ideal focus point. The camera controls exposure settings and flash to keep every face looking bright and natural. Red-eye Correction can be handled in-camera, in two ways. The entirely new Red-eye Correction during shooting uses the Face Detection Technology to recognize and remove red-eye from flash images as they''re taken, before the file is written to the memory card. It''s also possible to correct red-eye during image playback, using simple settings in the SD1100 IS Digital ELPH''s menu.

I use it to take pictures of every country I go to. I is nice to have something so small and easy to use. Moving around as much as I do you don't want to clutter life with a hugh camera.
