10x optical zoom with optical IS
Fitted with optical Image Stabilizer technology to counteract the effect of camera shake – and thus ensure crisp, blur-free results throughout the zoom range - a 10x optical zoom brings even distant subjects into view.
A 9.0 Megapixel sensor captures sufficient levels of detail for poster-size prints, or creative cropping.
DIGIC III with iSAPS
Canon’s DIGIC III processor delivers lightning-fast response times, superior colour reproduction, and outstanding noise reduction. iSAPS technology uses shooting scene data to optimise camera settings even before a shot is taken.
Face Detection Technology
Take perfect portraits, every time. Face Detection AF/AE/FE/WB detects up to nine faces and adjusts focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance - producing optimal results with natural-looking skin tones. Face Select & Track lets you choose and track your primary subject, so you never lose a special face in the crowd.
Auto Red-Eye Correction
Banish unsightly red-eye from shots - either via automatic correction straight after shooting, or with manual or automatic correction in playback.
No more blur
Get great, blur-free shots, even at long zoom range or in low light. Activated in High ISO Auto, Motion Detection Technology uses Face Detection Technology, the optical Image Stabilizer and scene information - on both scene brightness and changes between individual frames - to identify subject motion and camera-shake. ISO is also optimised for minimum blur and maximum image quality.
A generous 3.0” LCD screen with wide viewing angle makes framing and reviewing shots a pleasure.
Shooting Modes & My Colors
20 dedicated Shooting Modes deliver superb shots in a wide range of lighting conditions. Easy Mode allows simple ‘Point and Shoot’ operation, while experienced users can experiment with full manual control. The inclusion of My Colors lets you add filter effects such as black and white, either in shooting or playback.
A high-speed ISO 1600 setting allows correctly exposed shooting in indoor or other low-light conditions, without the need for a flash.
Shoot smooth, 30fps VGA movie clips at the touch of a button. A special Long Play option uses around half the normal memory card space.
