Canon's iconic ELPH has always been a show-off, with the looks and smarts that make you want to carry it out in the open for everyone to see. The PowerShot SD980 IS takes the concept even further with Canon's first-ever touch panel interface. The camera that invented sleek and slim is equipped with a huge 3-inch PureColor System LCD screen that responds to your touch, delivering operation that's as natural and intuitive as cutting-edge technology should be. Four opulent color options are the icing on the cake.
A Canon First: Touch Panel Technology. Large 3.0-inch wide touch panel PureColor System LCD with a cool cutting-edge interface, plus an updated Active Display for quickly switching between images during playback with a shake of the camera.
Just touch your finger to the huge 3.0-inch PureColor System LCD panel and the PowerShot SD980 IS responds - creating a fun, natural interface that's just the way you want to interact with technology now. When shooting, you can choose an AF point, select a shooting mode, operate the flash, set exposure compensation and more. Playback functions are also performed at your touch: switch between images, scroll display, magnify a portion of an image and control movie playback.
3.0-inch wide touch panel PureColor System LCD Screen
The PowerShot SD980 IS's 3.0-inch wide touch panel PureColor System LCD screen provides an alternative to dials and buttons. With Active Display technology, a quick shake of the camera prompts images to play back, one after the other. When the camera is tilted while advancing the images, the advance speed changes according to the tilt angle. Additionally, by quickly moving the camera forward, you can jump between Focus Checker frames when reviewing still images. Using the same action, you can pause or restart a movie currently playing.
Comments about Canon Canon SD980 IS Powershot Digital Camera (Silver):
I purchased this camera after I was unhappy with the Nikon I purchased for a bit more money than the Canon. We have used this camera for everything from soccer games to track event, zoo animals, mountains and even self portraits. Shooting in the continuous mode has been a life saver when trying to catch the kids in action. The photos turn out better than I expected and many friends have asked if we used an SLR to capture the pictures. I would buy this camera again and again. Very easy to set up and use right away. Also mentionable is that it is very durable. I can't even remember how many times I've dropped it or the kids have gotten it but it endures all.
