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
21 shooting modes include a full creative zone for manual control and 10 Special Scene modes for tricky lighting conditions, including Snow, Beach and Underwater. My Colors allows colour effects to be applied to images and movies.

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.
