Optical Image Stabilisation And Intelligent Auto with Scene Detection, Face Detection and Motion Detection makes taking great shots simple. For great portrait shots there are all new Smile Smart Shutter, Face Self Timer and Wink Self Timer modes. And with 720p HD movie recording you can capture all the action in glorious high definition. With new ultra-high capacity SDXC* memory card support you will have even greater storage options for your HD memories.


* SDHC Memory Cards and SDXC Memory Cards can be used only in equipment that is compatible with their respective formats. If the computer being used does not support SDXC Memory Cards, a message prompting you to format may appear. (Doing so will cause recorded images to be erased so do not choose to format.)


Movie Feature – captures high definition video with audio up to 1280x720p resolution at 30 frames per second. Recording length is up to capacity of memory card** (approx. 21 mins 23 seconds at HD 720p on a 4GB card**)


** we recommend class 6 or higher memory cards for recording high definition video



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

14.1 Megapixel – delivers photo quality prints up to A2 size.

28mm Wide-Angle 4x Optical Zoom Lens – cover a wide range of shooting situations from amazing wide-angle to capture more in your image – such as group shots, landscapes, tight interior shots - to telephoto where you can zoom up close to distant objects.

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

2.7” PureColor II LCD Screen – High resolution 230K LCD screen with wide viewing angle – great for composing, viewing and sharing your photos with others.

Smart Shutter – Includes a number of intelligent features such as: Face Detection Self-timer that detects when you have joined the frame and takes a photo and; Smile Shutter that takes a photo when your subject smiles at the camera; Wink Self Timer that starts the 2 second shutter timer just by winking at the camera.

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.

Intelligent Auto - New Auto mode with Scene Detection (22 scenes), Face Detection, Motion Detection and Noise Reduction makes it even easier to get the perfect shot – no need to fiddle around with menus to get the right camera settings.

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. 

Face Detection – focuses and sets correct exposure on faces rather than other objects that may appear in the frame. Also includes face detection self timer for when you want to be in the shot too.
Motion Detection - combats blur by monitoring camera shake, brightness and subject movement, and automatically sets the shutter speed and ISO level to deliver blur-free results.

Servo AF/AE - tracks moving subjects, maintaining both focus and exposure right up until the moment the user takes the shot.

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.

Mini HDMI output - High Definition movies can be viewed easily on a TV with optional mini HDMI -> HDMI cable (sold separately).
