Canon PowerShot SD4000 is (IXUS 300 HS/IXY 30S) Review

The range of SD/IXUS consists of ' style oriented ' of Canon compact cameras, and like the rest of the market is fragmented into many niches, the range has grown to accommodate a growing variety of needs. The SD4000 is on top of current training, offering a 3.8 x wide-angle zoom (despite its Point-and available below) and aperture priority mode. Also the SD4000 is the first of his family to be based on a backlit CMOS sensor that allows high speed modes and promises to improve performance in low light conditions.Style low-key of the SD4000 is belies the fact that it is indeed a very compact camera. In addition to the news on a backlit CMOS sensor, also has a lens that begins with a 28 mm equivalent, F2, 0-impressive, even if it ends in a F5 1.3 rather less worthy of note at the end of its 105 mm equivalent zoom range. We're curious to see the effect of using a CMOS sensor to hand back lit in the SD4000 is, because in our experience the promises made for low-light ability of these sensors (which collect light from what would be the back of a conventional CMOS design and then remove all supporting circuitry from the path of light), are not always evident compared to some of the most modern CCD designs.However, the SD4000 is capitalize read faster than CCDS, CMOS sensor, 720 p HD video offer, 3.7 fps full resolution continuous shooting, image resolution 8.4 fps reduced and even movies that are played 240 fps to 30 fps to give a slow motion effect. Being the top of the range compact style of Canon SD4000 is also has a selection of extra shooting mode as miniature and fisheye (fake tilt/shift) modes. 28-105 mm equivalent, F2.0-5.3 image stabilized lens10 million pixel 1/2.3 "sensor (0.28 cm?) 3.0-inch LCD screen (16: 9 aspect ratio, 230 k dots) 720 p 30 fps HD video capture3.7fps back-illuminated CMOS continuous shooting at full resolutionISO 125-3200 (6400 at reduced resolution) HDMI outputSensor • type 1/2.3"

If you're new to digital photography, you can read the digital photography Glossary before diving into this article (it may help to understand some of the terms used).

Conclusion/recommendation/ratings are based on the opinion of the reviewer, you should read the entire review before coming to its conclusion.Images that can be displayed with a larger size have a small magnifying glass icon is at the bottom right corner of the image, clicking on the image will display a larger (typically VGA) image in a new window.To pass the review simply use the next/previous page buttons to navigate to a particular section, choose the section drop-down or select it from the top navigation bar.DPReview calibrate their monitors using color vision optical at the PC normal gamma (fairly well accepted) 2.2, this means that on our monitors we can make the difference between all grayscale blocks (computer generated) below. We recommend that you make the most of this review, should be able to see the difference (at least) between X, Y and z and ideally A, B and c.
