The official marketing text of Canon PowerShot S2 IS 5.3MP 1/2.5" CCD 2592 x 1944pixels Silver as supplied by the manufacturer
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.

Online action
Canon iMAGE Gateway³ provides access to 100MB of internet storage for images, and movies - perfect for sharing with friends and family.
