The Canon Powershot SD800 is a real Powerhouse! Within this ultra-compact body are some amazing capabilities. First is a wide angle 3.8x Optical Zoom with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology for the steady zooms which add interest to movies. The improved movie mode gives the operator a choice of two film speeds, 60 fps QVGA and 30fps VGA, for smooth running films. Combine this with a light sensitivity up to ISO 1600, this camera is perfect for recording low light events, such as the dramatic presentation of a candle-laden birthday cake at the next party. Other technology available on this compact camera is the DIGIC III Image Processor with Face Detection Technology for the best image quality and low power consumption.

This camera is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery. Canon has even included a battery charger with the camera. Imagine, you won't have to interrupt your dream vacation to hunt for replacement batteries! This is a powerful, compact camera which is also environmentally compassionate.
