(Tuesday, February 21, 2006 - 06:00 EST)

One of a mass of digital camera announcements in the runup to this year's Photo Marketing Association tradeshow is the Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital ELPH.

Featuring clean lines and the familiar beveled detailing around the lens,
the SD600 is one of three Digital ELPH models revealed today, and as with its
new sibling the SD630, it offers a six megapixel imager and 3x optical zoom
lens. Where the SD630 packs in a giant LCD at the expense of an optical viewfinder,
the SD600 retains both a viewfinder and an LCD that, at 2.5" diagonal, is only
just slightly smaller. The Canon-branded lens ranges from 35 - 105mm equivalent,
and other features include USB and NTSC/PAL connectivity, Lithium Ion rechargeable
battery, and SD / MMC card storage.
