Frame rates

Higher frame rates can give very impressive results. The latest PowerShot and IXUS cameras with the HS System and CMOS image sensors feature Super Slow Motion Movie which takes 240fps in QVGA and 120 fps in VGA resolution, letting you show all the drama of fast moving subjects.


Canon digital cameras and camcorders are very good at shooting in low light, even indoors at night under artificial light but switching on extra room light, if available, will help. If the colour balance doesn’t look quite right,  consider moving from Auto WB to one of the alternative preset settings.

Adding sound
Recording sound while you shoot can be a little difficult. Cameras have built-in microphones that are suitable for capturing atmospheric background noises and many of the current models also feature a Wind Filter to minimise distractions.
