12.1 Megapixel High Sensitivity CMOS Sensor – allows you to capture amazing photos even in low-light situations

24mm Wide-Angle Lens – f2.0 Aperture
 – 4.4x Optical Zoom and 24mm wide-angle lens allows you to get closer or shoot beautiful landscapes and great group shots. With an f/2.0 aperture lens, capture amazing photographs with shallow depth of field.

 - Canon's newest processor gives you clearer images with more vibrant colours, fast start-up time, super-fast image processing, and low power consumption. 

3.2 inch Touch LCD Screen
 - A large intuitive 3.2” LCD touch screen makes shooting and recording your memories easy.

Touch Auto Focus with Subject Tracking
 - Simply focus on your subject with a touch of the screen and they will be the focus of the shot even if they move.

iFrame video format
 -  The new iFrame video format can dramatically simplify and speed up the process of importing, editing and sharing your videos.

Creative Filters
 - Shoot with creative filters for an added effect: Fish Eye, Miniature, Toy Camera, Monochrome, Super Vivid, Poster, Colour Accent and Colour Swap effects are available.

Intelligent Auto (32 scenes)
 - Improved Auto mode in both photo and video mode makes it even easier to get the perfect shot

Smart Shutter
 – Includes a number of intelligent features such as Face Detection Self-timer, Smile Shutter and Wink Self Timer.

Optical Image Stabilisation
 - counteracts blurred images due to shaky hands or when shooting in low-light conditions. Also important at full zoom where a small movement of the hand can cause a lot of movement at the other end.

ISO to 3200
 - this will help you take better photos in low lighting – reduces blur caused by camera shake or subject movement.

Intelligent Flash Exposure
 - Automatically detects whether flash is required and adjusts the flash output, shutter speed, aperture and ISO speed to best suit the photo being taken. 

Red Eye Correction
 - this camera lets you fix red eyes in the camera, which is great if you're printing straight from the memory card or to a pictbridge compatible printer.

Blink Detection
 – warns you when someone blinks in the photo you have just taken

High Speed Burst Mode – shoot still photos up to 8.0fps (frames per second). Great for capturing action shots.
