Canon PowerShot SD300 / Digital Ixus 40 announcement clippings

Images taken with the 4.0 Megapixel Digital IXUS 40 can be used for detailed prints all the way to A3 and A4 size respectively. It is the first ever camera to incorporate two UA (Ultra-high Refractive Index Glass Moulded (GMo) Aspherical lens) elements developed by Canon's lens material scientists. These achieve high-resolution and good contrast characteristics for the 3x optical zoom, which has a focal length of 35-105mm (35mm film equivalent). The camera also incorporate 9-point Artificial Intelligence Auto Focus (AiAF) for fast, sharp and accurate focus, even with off-centre subjects.

The camera is capable of taking extended movies (with sound, full playback and in-camera editing), of up to 1GB in size. When using high speed SD cards movie length is limited only by the card's capacity. It is the first digital still camera in the world to feature up to one minute of 60 fps QVGA quality, which allows for in-camera slow motion replay at various user-selectable speeds. Different frame rates and resolutions can be selected to best suit end applications such as TV playback or email attachment.

A Print/Share button simplifies direct printing via USB cable to any PictBridge compatible photo printer.
