Canon SD780 IS Price Watch and Availability

First published on: Monday, 9 March 2009

The price of most digital cameras tend to trend downwards over time, and the same price drop should occur in the case of the Canon Powershot SD780 IS Digital ELPH / Digital IXUS 100 IS, the slimmest ever compact digital camera in the ELPH series.

The SD780 IS / IXUS 100 IS features HD (High Definition) capture at 720p (1280 x 720 pixels) with HDMI output.

I’m not planning for any scheduled updates, but do check back here from time to time for the latest and best prices on the Canon SD780 IS and related accessories.

The SD 780 comes in four colors, black, gold, deep red and silver, and the price may vary between them.

Typical accessories for the SD 780
Canon NB-4L Battery Pack — Purchase additional batteries so that your SD 780 continues to have a backup power source during extended shooting sessions.

Canon WP-DC31 Underwater Case — This waterproof case is rated for depths of up to 130 feet (40 meters) in the water.

Mini-HDMI connector — This enables you to directly connect the SD780 to your HDTV or high-definition monitor and view HD movies with no degradation in image or audio quality.

For storage, the SD780IS uses SD or SDHC cards.

Refer to Rob Galbraith’s SD / SDHC card write speed tests (done on a Nikon D90) to get an idea on the relative write and read speeds of different brands of cards. At the time of writing (Oct 29, 2009), the SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards occupy the top two spots.

To ensure smooth recording of video and high resolution images, go for Class 6 or faster cards.

Good luck shopping for your Canon SD780 IS!
