The Pro30 utilizes the 14.1-megapixel Canon SX30-IS camera. The true 24- to 840-mm optical zoom, a pop-up flash, and Auto Smart technology make it one of the easiest-to-use low-cost cameras available for professional dental photography. With its SNAP cosmetic simulation software, it instantly produces convincing before-and-after simulation photos, showing patients how great they could look. The picture can then be taken home to show the spouse, family, and friends. For more information, call (866) 987-7627 or visit snapdental.com.
