The list of features for the SD430 is basically the same as for the SD400, with of course the exception of the WiFi. The SD430 comes equipped with a 5 megapixel CCD and 3x optical zoom. Its lens is capable of 35mm-105mm. The SD430 uses Canon's DIGIC II imaging processor, which is a little outdated but does the job. You won't get very many manual controls with this camera, but that is pretty standard in Canon's SD line. Most amateur photographers don't use manual controls, so this camera would fit an average photographer better than a professional one.
The SD430 also offers the ability to record video, which is average quality at best. The ISO settings range from 50-400, and can be set on automatic. All of the features of the SD430 are very basic. Nothing really jumps out at you, except all of the WiFi capabilities.
Probably my favorite thing about this camera is that Canon has included the wireless print adaptor in the box. This saves some money on having to buy it as an additional accessory. This wireless print adaptor allows the user to send images from the camera to any PicBridge printer, wirelessly. The other accessories included in the box are as follows:
Wireless Print Adapter WA-1N
16MB SD memory card
NB-4L lithium-ion battery pack with cover
Canon Digital Camera Solution Disk v27.0 software CD
Operating manuals and registration card
The WiFi capability doesn't stop at printing. This camera also allows for wireless transfer of images from your camera to your computer. This is a pretty cool option, because it relieves the use of a USB wire to transfer to the computer.
Another great feature of this camera is its capability for remote operation. I would almost compare it to a wireless webcam, because this feature is similar in that you can operate the camera through the computer. For instance, you can have the SD430 set-up outside on a tripod for a shot, and then operate the camera from your computer through the use of WiFi. Not only can you take pictures using this feature, but you can also adjust the focus, white balance, and size of the image, among other options. This is all done from your computer and sent via WiFi to your camera where the command is carried out. This technology is very cool, and I expect to see a lot more of this WiFi capability in digital cameras in the near future from all of the manufacturers.
