Canon PowerShot SD990 IS and SD880 IS: Point and shoot cams for the masses

So maybe the Canon EOS 5D Mark II, the G10, along with the SX10 IS just don’t scream your style. Canon understands that and has the obligatory, new Digital Elph upgrades just for you. The SD990 IS and SD880 IS both pack optical image stabilization and the DIGIC 4 image processor, but that’s where the similarity stops.

The higher-end SD990 receives Canon’s latest 14.7MP sensor, 2.5-inch LCD, along with the firm’s new Quick Shot Modes for even faster shutter speeds. This pocket cam is coming out in silver. oh-so-sexy black, and a limited edition red for $399 sometime in October ’08.

The SD880 is loaded with more commonplace specs, such as a 10MP sensor, 4x zoom and a 3-inch LCD. Available in two-tone black and silver, gold and silver, or gold and brown when it drops for $299 also in October ’08.
