Canon Powershot SD500 and SD400, Ultra Compact Digitals

Canon today, with full PRE-PMA spirit, announced their 2 new ultra compact camera models; the Canon PowerShot SD500 and SD400. Both models feature a compact design, 2.0″ LCD viewing screen, and high megapixel resolution. Both cameras will also feature a ‘hold’ function which displays your recently snapped capture for longer and then allows them to be deleted without switching to playback mode.

Canon SD500:

The SD500 (Digital IXUS 700 in Europe) is being introduced as Canon’s flagship in the IXUS lineup. This 7.1 megapixel camera features a large 2.0″ LCD viewing screen, DIGIC II image processing, zoom feature during movie taking, and its even 8% lighter than its predecessor.

Expect to see this camera in March for a price of around $650 USD.

Canon SD400:

The SD400 (IXUS 50 in Europe) will feature a 5.0 megapixel sensor, a large 2.0″ LCD viewing screen, 3cm macro mode, DIGIC II processor, and 3x optical zoom. Canon is announcing this camera as their smallest camera yet; 90 x 57 x 27 mm with a weight of 170g. Also featured is an optional underwater casing capable of being submerged in water at up to 40m. It also looks as if they have a carbon fiber ring around the lens housing to save on weight, who knows, at least that’s what it looks like.

Expect to see this camera in March for a price of around $520 USD.

Pre-PMA is always an exciting time; let’s just hope companies keep some secrets hidden for the actual show itself! PMA will be starting on the 20th and running until the 23rd.
