  • 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
  • f/2.0, 24mm, 4.4x zoom. Optical IS: A bright f/2.0 lens captures low-light images and fast-moving subjects at higher shutter speeds brilliantly. A 24mm ultra-wide coverage lets you put more in the frame, while Canon's advanced optical IS reduces blur caused by camera shake
  • Stainless steel body: A slim and stylish metal body gives the camera a quality feel with performance to match
  • 8.0 cm (3.2 inch) PureColor II Touch LCD: The PureColor II Touch LCD has outstanding contrast, resolution and colour rendition. An advanced touch screen interface lets you customize the screen to match your shooting style and makes using the camera quick and fun
  • 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
  • Smart Auto: Smart Auto is truly automatic, allowing the camera to detect from 32 different scenes. You can take great pictures in confidence, knowing the camera will take care of everything
  • High-speed Burst and Super Slow Motion Movie: Capture photos of fast-paced action with up to 8.2 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
  • iFrame movie: The iFrame video format is a simple way to quickly import, edit and share your video
  • Creative shooting modes and manual control: 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. For the look and feel of a picture taken with an older style camera try Toy Camera Effect
