More of Everything You Love About ELPH.
Significant technology upgrades and a richly sophisticated design make the PowerShot SD4500 IS Digital ELPH camera so easy to say "yes" to. Your best shot is never too far away, thanks to a hugely powerful lens that boasts a 10x Optical Zoom.

Canon's HS SYSTEM (10.0 Megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor plus DIGIC 4 Image Processor) delivers gorgeous images in low light, while the advanced Smart AUTO intelligently manages an expanded, diverse array of shooting situations for stills and videos, so you can focus on composition and creativity. You'll have easy, intuitive access to features that put your photography on the cutting edge, like Super Slow Motion Movie and High-Speed Burst.

Features

The Best Shots are All Within Reach.
The PowerShot SD4500 IS Digital ELPH camera is the first ELPH equipped with a 10x Optical Zoom - an amazing feat of engineering for a camera this slim and light. If, like most people, you've been shooting with a standard-size zoom, you will be blown away when, with just a simple push of a button, you're taken right up to the shot you want. For natural candids of people, pets and wildlife there's no substitute, while stadium games, concerts and other big events come to life with a lens that puts you right in the middle of the action. Best of all? Even at the far end of the zoom your shots are clear and steady, thanks to Canon's highly effective Optical Image Stabilizer.

Experience the Power.
The Canon HS SYSTEM takes the frustration out of low light shooting. The system delivers clear, blur-free shots with all the ambiance intact, and frees you from the sometimes unwanted effects of using the flash. Beautiful low light shots are possible at both low and high ISO speeds, and the dynamic range is expanded to retain maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas.

Full HD Videos From a Pocket-sized ELPH.
Most digital cameras record videos, but isn't it time you gave your memories the unparalleled quality of full high definition? The PowerShot SD4500 IS Digital ELPH camera records videos in uncompromising Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels at 24 fps) to give you the highest quality videos available - and all from a camera that fits in your pocket!

Advanced Smart AUTO for Stills and Videos that Shine.
The PowerShot SD4500 IS Digital ELPH camera takes the quality of your still images and videos to a whole new level - automatically. The camera's advanced Smart AUTO system detects a wealth of information about the scene you're shooting, then automatically selects the optimal settings for you. Now with an expanded range of 28 shooting scenarios, the camera handles virtually any situation you'll encounter beautifully - freeing you up to concentrate on composing your shot and capturing the moment you're looking for.

Play it Slow for some Added Flair!
Give your videos a whole new look with the Super Slow Motion Movie function. Whether you're going for a dreamy, creative slant when documenting family moments, or making a highlight film of your kids' greatest sports plays, you'll love the high quality capture of this all-new feature. The camera shoots your clips at high speed (approx. 240fps) and plays them back at 30fps for the inimitable super slow motion feeling you'll love.

Every Memory and Moment Captured!
High-Speed Burst is exactly what you need when you're trying to capture the best possible shot within a moment of fast-moving action. In High-Speed Burst mode, the camera automatically shoots continuously at high speed (approx. 8.8fps)* while you simply hold down the shutter. The mode lets you shoot sporting events, kids in motion, wildlife and any situation with unpredictable movement, then simply choose the best shots captured.

New Features Ramp Up Your Shooting Experience.
The PowerShot SD4500 IS Digital ELPH camera has a number of cool new features to improve performance and image quality. Best Image Selection works in conjunction with the camera's continuous shooting function. The camera shoots 5 successive images, then analyzes movement and facial expressions to pick the best shot. By saving only the best shot, the feature preserves space on your memory card so you do not have to check through several similar images and erase.
