New Canon Digital ELPH HS Cameras

NEW, in the Canon PowerShot ELPH series: The 100HS (above) and the 300HS. Both are packed with new powerful technologies, which includes the HS System. The HS System has 12.1 megapixel CMOS and DIGIC 4 Image Processor, full 1080p HD video, high speed shooting (in h.s. burst mode, 8.2fps), high speed video recording, Smart Auto, 4x optical zoom with wide angle lens, Optical Image Stabilizer, and a PureColor System LCD. 

Other new functions include new scene modes with Toy Camera Effect, Fish-eye Effect, and more. The Movie Digest Mode records a short video clip right before shooting a still image and then combines one day's worth of clips into one video. 

The HS System also improves shooting in low-light situations without a flash and lowers noise levels at higher ISOs. The dynamic range has been expanded to retain maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas.

(The differences in the 100HS and 300HS are slight, and have variances in: focal length, LCD monitor size, fastest shutter speed, shooting modes, and dimensions of body.)

100HS- Silver, brand new in box with cables, CD, battery and charger (takes S/D card): $209
300HS- Black, brand new in box with cables, CD, battery and charger (takes S/D card): $249.99
