The PowerShot SD30 was designed with the fashion conscious trendsetter in mind, it is available in four new metallic finishes: Tuxedo Black, Rockstar Red, Glamour Gold and Vivacious Violet. These cameras also come with color coordinated cases for each camera color.

The SD30 has have many of the latest advances in Canon technology including the proprietary DIGIC II imaging processor. The processor enhances picture definition, vibrancy and quality, while helping increase the speed of the cameras� startup, autofocus, shutter response, playback and image processing speed and reducing power consumption by 35% compared to the original DIGIC chip. Image transfer speed is accelerated (when used with a USB 2.0 compatible computer, printer or other peripheral), thanks to the inclusion of a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port which is backwards compatible with the slower USB 1.1 connections.

Like all PowerShot digital cameras, the SD30 works seamlessly with Canon�s petite SELPHY Compact Photo Printers � an essential PowerShot accessory. Consumers simply connect their PowerShot digital camera to a SELPHY printer � such as the new SELPHY CP510, CP710 and CP600 models � press the lighted Print/Share button, and within 58 seconds , images emerge. Presto! It�s that simple. Canon�s SELPHY Compact Photo Printers are PictBridge compatible. At 28 cents-per-print , printing photos directly from a digital camera is both easy and affordable.

Powershot SD30 Features:

5 Megapixel CCD imager and 2.4x optical zoom lens
Pocket-sized, durable metal body, available in 4 colors
1.8" color LCD display/viewfinder
Advanced TTL AiAF 9-point autofocus system with focus-assist lamp
Program AE automatic, 8 Scene and a Manual exposure mode
Movie mode w/sound 640x480/320x240 up to 1GB
Continuous shooting at 1.8 fps
Evaluative, Center-weighted average or Spot metering
Exposure compensation: +/-2EV in 1/3-step increments
White Balance: Auto, 5 presets or Custom
Photo Effects: Low Sharpening, Vivid Color, Neutral,

I bought this camera for my wife last summer - because I knew that she wanted something she could keep in her purse.  It has definitely been good for that, and she loves the design.  Unfortunately, sometimes the camera produces blurry images with red/orange tint.  I don't know why this sometimes happens, but other owners I've talked to have experienced the same thing. 

It is too bad, because the form is so nice and compact.  Unfortunately, I would not recommend this over other small cameras of similar price.
