Canon has today unveiled its new PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH digicam, a compact six megapixel model with an image stabilized 4x optical zoom lens.

Image stabilizers are still far from commonplace in compact cameras, but they undoubtedly add greatly to the versatility in difficult shooting situations. The PowerShot SD700 IS marks the first use of a stabilizer in a Digital ELPH series camera. Coupled with an ISO sensitivity range that goes a bit higher than average to a maximum sensitivity of ISO 800, the SD700 IS will doubtless prove an attractive camera for users who want more than just the highest possible megapixel rating. Other features of the SD700 IS, which features a smoothly curved body that Canon refers to as a "perpetual curve design", include a generous 2.5" LCD display, SD/MMC card storage, USB and NTSC / PAL connectivity, and power from a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery.
