confused.JPG What are the features and how will they benefit you?

DIG!C III - Canon's newest processor gives you clearer images with more vibrant colours, fast start-up time, super-fast image processing, and low power consumption.
Optical Image Stabilisation plus Auto High ISO – dual image stabilising technology works to counteract blurred images due to shaky hands, subject movement, or when shooting in low-light conditions.
Face Detection – automatically detects up to 9 faces in a scene and adjusts focus, exposure and flash accordingly to achieve the best results. New Face Select and Track function lets you select a face from 35 detected faces using the dedicated Face Selector button.
Red Eye Correction - this camera lets you fix red eyes in the camera, which is great if you're printing straight to a pictbridge compatible printer.
Digital Tele-Converter – works like adding a tele-converter lens to increase zoom, whilst maintaining aperture size to avoid blur. Also features Safety Zoom to prevent loss of image quality.
Image Resize - downsize full-resolution images to 1600x1200, 640x480 and 320x240 sizes – perfect for instant uploads to blogs or auction sites.
