It is getting close to summer time, so you know that new gadgets and goodies are starting to roll out. Today, Canon has announced a new camera to its Digital ELPH line, the PowerShot SD4000 IS. The camera features a 10 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, DIGIC 4 image processing engine, and a 3.8x optical zoom. It also has an f/2.0 lens and Canon's own HS System to help produce better looking low-light shots. The camera also has an 8.4fps burst capture rate, an HD movie mode, HDMI output support, a Super Slow Motion movie mode that captures images at 240fps, and a 3-inch rear LCD. The SD4000 IS will work with the new SDXC memory cards and has support for Eye-Fi.

The camera will cost $349.99 and comes in a choice of red, black, silver, or a limited edition white. No word on a launch date was announced, but expect it soon.
