PowerShot S40 represents a new concept in digital cameras, achieving high image quality, multi-functionality, portability and style. Fitted with a sliding lens cover, the digital cameras realize a compact, capsule-shaped body with a 1:2 height to length ratio. The PowerShot S40's chic graphite-gray metallic finish exterior combine with the models' sleek body design to deliver an eye-catching aesthetic appeal. PowerShot S40 incorporate advanced optical technology to deliver outstanding image quality. PowerShot S40 features the 4 megapixcel CCD sensor and an RGB primary color filter, which enable rich, detailed images and lifelike color reproduction. Also, Canon's newly developed high-speed "imaging engine" signal processor achieves a high signal to noise ratio to produce high-resolution images with natural color reproduction. While ably catering to the needs of first-timers with a range of automatic functions, PowerShot S40 also offer a variety of manual operating settings to satisfy the creative shooting needs of intermediate and advanced level users. Great shooting flexibility, from scenery to close-up snaps, is also realized by the compact size 3X zoom lens, which achieves a broad focal range equivalent to 35-105mm on a conventional 35mm camera. The PowerShot S40 come enabled for the latest printing solution, direct-connect printing from the optional new BJ F890PD, and the Card Photo Printer CP-10.
