PowerShot Fun
The announcement of the SD4000 is pretty significant to the PowerShot line. It definitely tells us what else is coming down the pipe.

It uses a 10mp backlit CMOS sensor. This will apparently greatly improve high ISO performance.

I was told the sensor was made by Canon, I’m just trying to confirm it through other sources.

I had a chance to play with one for a few minutes today at the Canon booth.

The camera I shot these with was NOT a final production model.

They aren’t pulitzer shots, but it should give you an idea what this little camera is capable of.

The shots were shot at 7.5mp and not the full 10mp. I only had about 20 seconds with the camera.

More to come later.
