A World of Advantages with Canon's Technology.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor has evolved Face Detection Technology that tracks the faces of moving subjects and lets the shooter enter the frame seamlessly with the Face Detection Self-timer.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor

Canon's most advanced image processor, DIGIC 4, delivers evolved Face Detection Technology that keeps every face in every photo looking its very best. The technology finds and tracks the faces of moving subjects until you're ready to shoot, then delivers perfect focus. In addition, exposure, flash and white balance are compensated, so that faces exhibit natural skin tones and backgrounds are properly exposed.

iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

A Face Detection Self-timer automatically detects an increase in the number of faces and makes the appropriate adjustments. For instance, to include the photographer's face in a group shot, there's no need to rush in. Just put the camera on a stand or tripod, specify Face Detection Self-timer, and the camera will wait for the photographer's face to get on-camera before it takes the shot. Motion Detection tracks moving subjects in a much larger range, and the Servo AF retains focus on a moving subject after the shutter button is pressed halfway - allowing you to wait for the perfect shot without refocusing.

Intelligent Contrast Correction

DIGIC 4 also makes possible the i-Contrast (Intelligent Contrast Correction) system, which controls the compensation level in pixel units to brighten dark areas while leaving bright areas unchanged for better images where the main subject is dark, and more natural transition. The PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH can even use i-Contrast in playback mode to adjust images that were shot without the setting activated.

Red-eye Correction provides three options for removing red-eye from subjects in flash pictures.

  • 1) Red-eye Correction during shooting actually identifies and corrects red-eye in human subjects as pictures are taken.
  • 2) The PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH can be set to automatically detect and correct red-eye during image playback.
  • 3) You can manually locate any red eyes in a scene during image playback on the LCD screen, and command the camera to remove them.

Life doesn't give you second chances to capture special times. That's why the PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH features an ISO 1600 setting that reduces the effects of camera shake and sharpens subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater shooting flexibility. ISO can be expanded to 3200 when you select ISO 3200 Special Scene mode.

Comments about Canon Canon Powershot SD780 IS Digital Camera w/HD Video (Black):

I primarily purchased this fabulous little camera to replace my old camera for listing items on ebay. However, this camera will do soooooooooooooo much more than pics. Good for video clips too! Just flip the switch and VOOLAH--you're in movie mode!

The auto-focus makes taking great pics a no-brainer for the non-professional photographer. No set-up required! The high-resolution setting is standard, allowing you to capture every little detail of your subject.

The camera is rather small, but you quickly figure out how to hold it without getting the edge of your hand in every picture. The display screen is bright, clear, and just the right size to avoid eye strain from frequent squinting.

If you feel you can't be happy unless you are complicating the camera settings, you can easily change innumerable settings to whatever your heart desires (but why do it?!?!), so professional photographers will love it too! The manual gives great EASY-TO-FIND and EASY-TO-UNDERSTAND details on every single feature and option available to this camera.

I also recommend spending the extra $$ to get the Eye-Fi 4 GB wireless memory card too. Make sure you get the WIRELESS one. It's great for instantly uploading your pics and videos to your computer (or several select web sites) without doing a thing!

Comments about Canon Canon Powershot SD780 IS Digital Camera w/HD Video (Black):

I have always owned sony digital cameras and I love sony products but, it was getting a bit expensive. The memory sticks are pricey compared to the sd cards. My friend owns a Canon which she loves and I thought why not try a different brand. I am happy with my decision to switch to Canon. I still own many sony products but when it comes to pictures I am a Canon user!

Comments about Canon Canon Powershot SD780 IS Digital Camera w/HD Video (Black):

This is a really good camera so far. The only thing I don't like is that it is a little too small. It's almost impossible to hold it or use it without touching the lcd display screen, which scratches fairly easily. Other than that, it's a wonderfull camera.
