    With 14.1 Megapixels, the PowerShot SD3500 IS Digital ELPH provides amazing image resolution, catching the truly exquisite details that will make your photography top-notch. The PowerShot SD3500 IS Digital ELPH is the very image of photography at its best, featuring megapixels that's among the highest resolution of the Digital ELPH series to capture every detail of the world around you. There's never been a better time to think big, knowing that every enlargement will be sharper and more full-of-life than you've ever experienced before.
  • Capture sweeping landscapes and tall buildings with a 24mm ultra wide-angle lens, and 5x optical zoom with optical image stabilizer
    Despite its slim profile and small body, the PowerShot SD3500 IS Digital ELPH is equipped with a 5x optical zoom - no more sitting on the sidelines with the action too far away. The lens is ultra wide-angle, with a focal length of 24mm. That puts more images in every shot for visual excitement and a high-end feel. And the best part? Even at the long end of the zoom, images are clear and steady thanks to Canon's optical image stabilizer that controls camera shake.
  • 720p HD movie shooting capability plus HDMI output connector for easy playback of video and photos on your HDTV
    The PowerShot SD3500 IS Digital ELPH lets you record video in beautiful high definition (1280 x 720 pixels).

You'll enjoy the HD experience with no degradation of image or audio in the signal, plus the ability to display up to 130 thumbnails at once.

It's a relaxing and satisfying way to shoot because you can completely concentrate on your subject knowing that the camera has the technical details covered.

So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset, or your friends at the park, you can be confident that you're getting dramatic, memorable images. Even if your subject is moving, Canon's advanced detection technologies capture the action as it happens.
  • Bring creativity to your photos with scene modes such as miniature effect and fisheye effect, plus low light mode for dimly-lit situations
    The Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS Digital ELPH offers creative effects similar to those once found only in professional lenses. Miniature effect creates an illusion where very large objects appear in miniature. Turn soaring cityscapes into a scene in seemingly dollhouse-like proportions.
  • Smart shutter technology automatically takes a picture when the subject smiles or winks
    Smart shutter, which includes smile self-timer, wink self-timer and face detection self-timer, detects faces in the scene and releases the shutter automatically in response to the appearance of an additional face, or when a smile or sassy wink occurs. These technologies help to make your photography less rushed and more natural, so getting the perfect shot is even easier.

This camera was put in service to replace a 870 Canon which by the way is a stellar camera. The features for the 3500 are quite nice and the touch screen is easy to use. I am severely disappointed in the speed in which the camera performs. I do have expectations that the camera would perform much slower than a SLR. The camera speed is beyond ridiculous; and when shooting photos stalls out for 2 to 4 seconds between shots. I thought the fireworks option would be a fun tool to take pictures over the Fourth of July. This served to be fruitless. The 4g Cellular phone (8 megapixel camera phone ) out did this camera. If a shot was taken, the camera would stall out for 6 -7-8 seconds to get the shot. I am beyond disappointed in the camera. Ooooppppssss I missed that picture is common on this unit due to slow speed. This is the second unit send out by a very responsible retailer. The first unit had a defective time and date stamp issue. I give this unit a think twice be for purchase; 2 thumbs down!

The Canon Powershot SD3500 IS is truly awesome!! I did a lot of research and read reviews from professional critics before purchasing this camera a few weeks ago. I normally use a Canon digital slr but wanted a camera that was lightweight and could fit in my pocket, and one that took great photos. I just returned from a weeklong commercial photo shoot out of state and I'm proud to say many of the photos I shot with the SD3500 will appear online in a national campaign featuring high-tech and lifestyle scenes. Some of the photos had to be shot in low light conditions. The SD3500 photos are sharp and in many cases better than the ones I shot with my slr. I programmed the camera to shoot at the highest/largest size settings, which takes up a lot more memory on the SD card. But, that was ok since I had extra cards with me. The touch screen was easy to maneuver and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the menus. Also, the color balance and saturation in the photos are remarkable. There’s very little correction that needs to be done in PhotoShop. I haven’t tried recording video yet, so I can’t comment about that. This is a very easy camera to use and it takes fantastic photos. I'm sure glad I made the investment. By-the-way, Walmart.com had the lowest prices. My camera was bundled with a 2 gig SD card.

I've had a Kodak and a Sony, and now I have a Canon. My favorite out of the 3? You guessed it, the Canon! I had originally bought the SX210, and was not happy with it. It took great pictures, but it took too long to view the pics after it took them. And I really didn't like where the flash was or how the menu and features were set up. So, I took it back and got this one. Immediately I fell in love with it, and the more I play with it the more I like it. It has some really fun features, as well as takes GREAT pictures. I'm still getting used to the wide angle lens because now I don't have to back up so much to get more in the picture. I actually have to get closer than I'm used to. I have a baby and a toddler so I wanted to make sure that I had a camera that would be able to keep up with them. I'm concerned about the touch screen getting broken, but I got a service plan so we're all set. Easy camera to use once you get to know it, and it takes great pics and great video's. The sound on teh video is great as well. I may have to give up my camcorder, because this is all I need. Thanks Canon!

This camera has a great touch screen and many great features like fish-eye and miniature mode. The HD movie is a good quality. This is one of the best cameras ever for taking outside shots: the quality is excellent. This camera is compact and is very durable. I feel like I could drop this camera off the top of a building and it would still work. However, the price is a bit much. The picture quality indoors is not what it should be for such an expensive camera. Trying to take pictures in dimly lit areas does not work well. I feel the optical zoom could also be better for the price you pay. Sometimes the image stabilization does not seem to work. Also, the shutter speed is terrible compared to other camera brands. Finally, the battery life is not good at all. The large LCD screen drains it fast. All in all it is a great outdoors camera and good for movies, but again seems a bit pricey and has a terrible battery life. I would still recommend a Canon camera to anyone though.

Just bought my new Canon Powershot SD3500 IS and totally in love with it. I has very neat features as color accent and color swap. The touchscreen is very big and very easy to use. Love the 14.1 megapixels, the camera it self is very light on weight and easy in the hand. I just can recommend to buy this camera, specially from Walmart, best price!!
