Features

The Canon PowerShot SD980 IS digital camera features Optical Image Stabilization and DIGIC 4 Image Processor, the proprietary technology from Canon that supports signal processing speeds and image quality. The camera also features Smart AUTO technology that can track moving faces and 22 different shooting situations by identifying the surroundings and adjust settings to ensure proper lighting and focus, providing performance in any situation, from group snapshots, to landscapes, to portraits and more. Other features include the ability to shoot 720p High-Definition (HD) video, the PureColor System LCD and a touch screen user interface for navigation through images and menus. The 12.1-Megapixel High Sensitivity System in the SD980 IS provides operation in low-light situations and reduce noise at high ISO speeds, while the High Sensitivity System which is combined with the DIGIC 4 image processor, results in a faster shutter speed to help reduce subject blur and camera shake in recorded images.
