Equipped with the latest Canon technology, the PowerShot SD600 Digital Elph gives all the power you’d expect from a high resolution camera and more. Packed with a full array of Canon’s most popular and convenient shooting features, this Digital Elph has a sleek, ergonomic design that will turn heads.

High resolution and superior comfort
Designed for the way you like to shoot, the sleek and compact 6.0-megapixel PowerShot SD600 Digital Elph has just what you need to make every image razor sharp and vibrantly colorful. The genuine Canon 3x optical zoom UA lens brings you in close for the details that will make your images startling and bold.

Better shots, easier replay
PowerShot SD600 Digital Elph incorporates a large 2.5-inch LCD screen for a truly eye-opening view. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture and wider viewing angle to make shooting, playback, and using the camera’s menu functions especially convenient. And when you’re shooting at dusk or at night, the Night Display function lets you see the display clearly. It brightens the object while you compose your shot by reducing the frame rate on the LCD screen.

Canon innovation enhances your experience
The PowerShot SD600 Digital Elph features new ISO 800 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations with high shutter speeds, giving you greater flexibility for shooting.

Advanced imaging technology improves every photo

DIGIC II Image Processor
Canon’s DIGIC II Image Processor is designed to improve processing speed and image quality, so DIGIC II provides markedly faster startup, autofocus, and playback, plus it assures that every image is more colorfully vibrant.

iSAPS Technology
iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC II Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

Shoot and view wide images
The PowerShot SD600 Digital Elph includes a 16:9 widescreen resolution option, producing images and film clips that are perfect for your widescreen TV or computer monitor.

Superior quality movies
Fast Frame Rate Movie Mode allows you to record extremely smooth, full-motion movie clips for up to one minute long in QVGA at 60 frames per second (fps) (320 x 240 pixels). With a highly flexible movie mode, you can create the movie that’s perfect for any application. Select from VGA (640 x 480 pixels) and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels) with frame rates of 30 fps and 15 fps for recording up to 1 hour or 1 GB. Plus, Compact Movie Mode (QQVGA; 160 x 120 pixels) records at 15 fps for up to 3 minutes.

Shooting Modes

  • Auto: The camera chooses all the settings so you can concentrate on your subject.
  • Manual: The ultimate in creative control, you set ISO speed, exposure compensation and white balance.

  • Beach: Get clear shots of people at a sunny beach without darkened faces.

  • Darker Skin Tone: Darken skin tones a shade.
