The power of 12x zoom.
High performance optics
A powerful 12x optical zoom lens features Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology to counteract camera shake. An Ultrasonic Motor (USM) ensures fast and near-silent zoom operation*. UD lens technology reduces chromatic aberration for razor-sharp images with superb colour accuracy.
A 6.0 Megapixel CCD sensor captures every scene with enough fine detail for large, photo quality prints.
Extensive movie functions
Shoot smooth 30fps VGA quality movies with full audio, or record QVGA movies at 60fps and analyse in sharp slow motion. Make full resolution stills while recording with the Photo in Movie feature.
Canon's DIGIC II image processor drives rapid 2.3 fps continuous shooting and responsive camera controls. iSAPS technology uses scene information to optimise camera settings before a shot is taken. FlexiZone AF/AE lets you manually select the focus point from almost anywhere in the frame. Super Macro mode allows for millimetre-close focusing on tiny subjects.
A choice of 20 shooting modes includes Manual mode for complete creative control. 8 Special Scene modes assist with tricky lighting conditions. My Colors allows colour effects to be applied in camera before and after shooting.
Low light performance
ISO 800 allows for flash-free shooting in low light and indoor environments. It also enables shooting at higher shutter speeds, reducing the risk of blur from camera shake and subject movement.
Widescreen 16:9 still image recording allows playback on widescreen TV or printing on wide size paper with a SELPHY CP printer.
Large vari-angle LCD
The 2.0" vari-angle LCD lets you frame from creative angles and share playback with friends. Night Display mode enhances screen visibility after dark.
A wide range of optional accessories includes wide and tele converter lenses, a lens hood, slave flash and a soft case.
