Canon Announces PowerShot SD-100 Digital Camera

Company also intros new dye-sub printers By Dave Nagel
Canon has announced a new model in its line of Digital ELPH cameras. The new SD-100 digital camera is being billed as Canon's smallest ever, coming in 15 percent smaller and 8 percent lighter than current models. Canon has also introduced two new dye-sublimation printers.

The new PowerShot SD100 offers a 3.2 megapixel resolution in the line's smallest form factor to date. It has a smaller optical lens design, a small built-in flash unit and new condensed battery. It also uses a Secure Digital (SD) Memory card for further miniaturization. The new SD100 offers the same features as the S230, including Canon's DIGIC Image Processor and the ability to capture up to three minutes of video at 640 x 480. It also uses Canon's iSAPS technology for performance enhancements to the system's autofocus, auto exposure and auto white balance functions. There will also be a new waterproof housing for the SD-100, allowing for use at a depth of up to 130 feet.

Canon is also announcing two new dye-sublimation printers, the Canon Card Photo Printer CP-200 and CP-300. These new USB-based models are 40 percent smaller and 13 percent lighter than current models in the line and can print directly from any current model PowerShot camera. The CP-300 also offers an optional battery pack for portability.

Canon has not announced pricing or availability on the new camera or printers. For more information, visit
