4x optical zoom
A 4x optical zoom lens gives you the flexibility to frame shots up close or at a distance without sacrificing quality.

2.5" Vari-angle LCD screen
The large 2.5" Vari-angle LCD twists in all directions - ideal for self portraits and creative shots at unusual angles. Night Display mode aids visibility in low light while a selectable Grid Line display helps with composition. A useful 3:2 ratio overlay indicates the printable area for standard photo prints.

Visionary Technology
Canon's DIGIC II image processor manages all camera functions and processes images at high speed for excellent responsiveness and extended battery life. iSAPS is a built-in assistant that uses scene information to optimize camera settings before the shot is taken.

Flexible focusing
Rely on 9-point AiAF to keep even off-centre subjects sharply in focus, or use FlexiZone AF/AE to manually select a focus point.

Shooting modes and My Colors

1cm Macro mode
Focus as close as 1cm and capture all the intricate detail of tiny subjects.

Safety Zoom and Digital Tele-Converter
Safety Zoom offers extra zoom magnification without affecting image quality¹. Use the Digital Tele-Converter feature for extra reach on every shot - just like adding a tele-converter lens to the camera.

High quality movies

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′).

This is probably just too big to fit in most pockets but the lack of a case is not vital as the lens is covered and the screen is capable of being rotated 180 degrees as with a lot of camcorders.
