The most obvious difference between the Canon PowerShot 350 and other digital-and film-cameras is its shape and size. The PowerShot 350 is smaller and more boxy than most cameras, which might make it easier to hold. It measures 3.75 by 3.5 by 2 inches and weighs 10.2 ounces without batteries.
At $699, the PowerShot 350 is also $250 cheaper than Canon's previous digital camera, the PowerShot 600. The PowerShot 350's viewfinder is a 1.8-inch color LCD with adjustable viewing angles. It uses JPEG image compression and 24-bit color, and has a maximum resolution of 640x480 pixels. The camera comes with a 2MB removable Compact Flash memory card and holds 47 images in normal mode, 24 images in fine mode and 11 in super fine.
The camera has On, Off, Auto and Redeye Reduction flash modes, and ships with a PC Interface Card, video-out cable, AC adapter, three AA rechargeable nickel cadmium batteries, soft carrying case and wrist strap.
