    PowerShot Spring/Summer 2014 brochure

    16x optical zoom, 28mm wide Canon lens

    Get closer to all the family action with a Canon 16x optical zoom that lets you capture every occasion in superb detail; up to 32x closer with ZoomPlus. The 28mm wide-angle lens captures impressive landscapes and fits everyone in the frame for great group shots.

    16 Megapixels

    A 16 Megapixel sensor delivers detailed high-resolution images that can be printed at very large sizes (A3+) or cropped to achieve the desired composition.

    Intelligent IS

    Keeping photos and videos steady and sharp is easy - even when shooting at full zoom or handheld in low light - thanks to intelligent IS, which automatically adjusts the optical Image Stabilizer for different types of camera shake.

    7.5 cm (3.0") LCD; Hints & Tips

    A large, high quality LCD screen with wide viewing angle allows for easy framing, effortless menu navigation and pleasurable reviewing and playback of the results. Easy Hints & Tips help you understand your camera and improve your results.

    Smart Auto (32 scenes)

    Even complete beginners can effortlessly shoot high quality photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects the optimal settings from 32 variables (21 in movie). Smart Auto is completely automatic - all you have to do is point and shoot.

    HD movies

    Effortlessly record high quality HD movies (720p) with stereo sound and optical zoom, with one touch of the dedicated Movie Record button. Intelligent IS reduces shake for sharper movies when shooting on the move or using the telephoto end of the zoom.

    Fun Creative Filters

    Experiment and have fun with a range of Creative Filters. Options include Fish-eye Effect to re-create the distortion of a fish-eye lens and Super Vivid to boost colour saturation. Use Miniature Effect in stills or movies to make scenes look like miniature scale models.

    Full Manual control

    Expand your creativity and take your photography to the next level with Full Manual control of shutter speed and aperture. Get as close as 1cm from your subject to capture beautiful hidden detail in Macro mode.

    Eco Mode, Li-ion battery
