Consumers can also wirelessly download images from this 5.0 megapixel, 3X optical zoom digital camera to a compatible personal computer, or even operate the camera remotely from as far away as 100 feet.
The Wireless Print Adapter WA-1N included with the SD430 Digital ELPH is pre-registered on the camera as a connecting device so wireless printing requires no initial setup.
Using the IEEE802.11b Wi-Fi standard, the SD430 digital camera can transmit a 5.0 megapixel image file to a compatible Canon SELPHY or PIXMA Photo Printer at high speed.
The new PowerShot SD430 Digital ELPH Wireless features a 1/2.5-inch 5.0 megapixel CCD sensor already known from the Digital ELPH SD400 and SD450 models as well as a 3X optical zoom lens which uses two ?UA? glass-mold aspherical lenses.
Canon's DIGIC II imaging processor also promises high picture definition, and a reduced power consumption by 35% compared to the original DIGIC chip. In addition, a USB 2.0 port allows wired transfering to PCs.
The camera kit includes Wireless Print Adapter WA-1N, Compact Power Adapter CA-DC20, Battery Pack NB-4L, Battery Charger CB-2LV, Interface Cable IFC-400PCU, AV Cable AVC-DC300, Wrist Strap WS-600, SD Memory Card SDC-16M and a set of instruction manuals as well as the Canon Digital Camera Solution Disc Version 27, featuring the latest versions of Canon?s software and ArcSoft PhotoStudio
