With a digital camera all the pictures you make are stored digitally, which means you can instantly view a picture after you have taken it and take as many pictures as you like, without having to buy new films all the time. It is easy to download the pictures from your camera to your computer, either at home or at the shop and edit them before printing. Once they are on your computer, you can easily share your pics with the rest of the world by putting them on-line, or e-mailing them to friends.

With a wide to super telephoto 12x optical zoom lens and both exceptional digital camera and video functionality, the PowerShot S2 IS gives you the freedom to capture every scene, any way you want.

Super Lens Performance
With Optical Image Stabilizer (IS), Ultrasonic Motor (USM) and a UD lens element, the PowerShot S2 IS's 12x optical zoom is no ordinary lens. Optical IS works to counteract camera shake - even at full zoom and in low light conditions - for ultra sharp photos and movies. USM provides super responsive, smooth and near silent zoom, while the UD element reduces chromatic aberrations for razor sharp images with superb colour accuracy. A super macro mode allows for precise focusing no matter how close you get to your subject.

Extra Long, High Quality Movies
Combine the powerful lens with capacity to shoot up to 60 minutes of VGA quality movies¹ with full stereo sound. A dedicated movie button gets you shooting immediately in either 15 or 30fps to ensure you never miss those once in a lifetime moments. The Photo In Movie feature allows full resolution digital stills to be taken whilst shooting a movie.

Superior Technology
The DIGIC II processor delivers incredible 2.4 fps continuous shooting², super fast auto focus and rapid start up, plus superb colour rendering and white balance accuracy for natural skin tones and rich, vibrant colours.

Creative control
For the ultimate in creative control over digital stills and movies, the PowerShot S2 IS provides 18 shooting modes. These include 6 Special Scene modes for great results in tricky lighting conditions, and My Colors for special effect colour swapping and manipulation. Direct manual control is available over a multitude of settings, such as focus, IS mode, shutter speed and aperture, and audio sampling rate.

Ergonomic flexibility
A 1.8" vari-angle LCD maximises shooting and playback pleasure, with Night Display for improved visibility in low light.

Take your experience further
Extend your zoom range to a staggering 27mm - 648mm with optional wide and tele converter lenses. Other optional accessories available include a close-up lens and High-Power Flash. For your post-shooting creativity, a variety of editing software is included and you can also print direct without a PC to any PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible photo printer.

Picture quality
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
5.3 MP
Image sensor size*
Sensor type*
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Maximum image resolution*
Resolution is the amount of detail held by an image. The higher the resolution, the better (sharper) the image. The maximum image resolution produces the best image.
2592 x 1944 pixels
Supported aspect ratios
The aspect ratio is the ratio of the width of an image to its height. The supported aspect ratios are the aspect ratios that can be shown by the device.
Lens system
Optical zoom*
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom*
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).

Camera CCD sensor
CCD (Charged Coupled Device): A silicone chip comprised of millions of tiny, square light-gathering diodes called Picture Elements, or pixels, laid out in a checkerboard pattern. This is the "film" of a digital camera. The light data gathered from these tiny pixels needs to be "processed" by the camera's image processor into Recorded Pixels. \n\n\n\nSuper CCD: A proprietary CCD system, produced by Fujifilm, that utilizes larger, octagonal-shaped, light-gathering diodes called Picture Elements, or pixels, that are laid out in a saw-tooth pattern. Super CCDs can capture more light information than ordinary CCDs; the extra information is used by the camera's image processor to improve color accuracy and ISO Speed. \n\n\n\n Super CCD HR (High Resolution): Is capable of nearly doubling the Number of Effective Pixels that are processed and stored as additional detail in the Recorded Pixel file. \n\n\n\n Super CCD SR (Sensitivity and Range): Uses a combination of small and large octagonal-shaped pixels to further enhance color accuracy, while improving detail in the areas of shadows and highlights, much like traditional film
