    Useful info

    HS System (12.1 MP)

    HS System excels in low light allowing you to capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or tripod. A high performance DIGIC4 processor and high sensitivity sensor give superior image quality in all situations.

    24mm, 5x zoom. Optical IS

    A high-quality 24mm ultra-wide angle Canon lens is extremely flexible and allows you to include more in the frame, from vast landscapes to indoor party shots. The 5x zoom with optical Image Stabilizer makes it easy to home in on details and reduce image blur.

    Stainless steel body

    A slim and stylish metal body gives the camera a quality feel with performance to match.

    6.7 cm (2.7") PureColor II G LCD

    A tempered glass-covered LCD screen is durable, strong and offers excellent contrast, allowing you to frame and review images quickly and accurately from any angle.

    Full HD with optical zoom. Dynamic IS

    High quality movies can now be recorded in Full HD (1080p) format. Two additions to greater video quality are crystal clear stereo sound and Dynamic IS, which stabilises movies against wobble and shake. HDMI connection with CEC allows you to enjoy your memories on an HDTV and to browse the gallery using the TV remote.

    Smart Auto

    Smart Auto is truly automatic, allowing the camera to detect from 32 different scenes. You can take great pictures in complete confidence, knowing that the camera will take care of everything, leaving you free to enjoy the moment.

    High-speed Burst & Super Slow Motion Movie

    Capture photos of fast-paced action with up to 8.0 shots/second using High-speed Burst mode or slow down movement up to 1/8th of the real speed using Super Slow Motion Movie mode.

    Movie Digest

    Movie Digest captures up to 4-seconds of the action before a shot is taken, joining all the clips together from the same day into a single VGA movie to add to your collection of photos.

    Creative shooting modes

    Creative shooting modes give you the opportunity to experiment. Fish-eye Effect re-creates the distortion of a fish-eye lens while Miniature Effect transforms landscapes into miniature scale models in both photos and movies. For the look and feel of a picture taken with an older style camera try Toy Camera Effect.

    Optional Waterproof Cases

    Explore underwater photography with either the compact and affordable WP-DC320L - for depths down to 3m or the more durable and fully functional WP-DC41 - for depths of 40m.
