PowerShot S1 IS NON 3.2Mpix CCD 10xoptical zoom DIGIC processor

Canon PowerShot S1 IS 3.2MP 1/2.7" CCD Silver:
The official marketing text of Canon PowerShot S1 IS 3.2MP 1/2.7" CCD Silver as supplied by the manufacturer

- Canon DIGIC processor with iSAPS
- PictBridge and Canon Direct Print compatible – no PC required

Get closer to where the action is.

10x Optical Zoom
Because it's not always possible to get really close to your subject, the PowerShot S1 IS combines an impressive 10x optical zoom lens with an Optical Image Stabilizer (IS) and Ultrasonic Motor (USM). This not only gives you a powerful zoom (38-380mm in 35mm format) but the USM allows for quiet and super-fast zooming*, so you won't miss the shot you want and, for nature photography, won't scare any wildlife away. The IS significantly reduces camera shake at full zoom and in low light conditions. The result is incredibly detailed shots whether you want close-up pictures of an exotic bird or your child's winning goal.

Super Movie Mode
Combine the zoom with the PowerShot S1 IS's enhanced Movie Mode and you can record detailed movies with superior, flicker-free VGA resolution. Using a frame rate of up to 30 frames per second for super smooth action, the PowerShot S1 IS automatically adjusts the exposure, focusing and white balance as you film. You can use the optical zoom to manually change your composition at the same time. The result is an impressively improved image quality and sound. And as you can record up to approximately 1GB of movie (depending on the size and speed of the memory card used), recording times are longer.

More technology
As with every Canon digital camera, the PowerShot S1 IS uses Canon Visionary Technology to ensure the best performance possible. Using Canon's unique iSAPS technology to optimise shooting settings, the high-performance DIGIC processor for fast processing and Image Rendering technology for accurate reproduction of colours, the PowerShot S1 IS delivers incredible results every time.

More flexibility
For greater creative control, the PowerShot S1 IS has 12 shooting modes – from Manual to Auto, plus 1 custom setting. A complete range of optional accessories is also available, such as wide/tele converter lenses and a waterproof case. Post-shooting, a variety of editing software is included, and you can print directly to a PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible photo printer without using a PC. The CANON iMAGE GATEWAY** lets you access 100MB of free internet space for storing images, creating albums and sharing photographs with friends and family via email.

This is an auto-generated long summary of Canon PowerShot S1 IS 3.2MP 1/2.7" CCD Silver based on the first three specs of the first five spec groups.
Picture quality
Megapixel *
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.
3.2 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.
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′).
0.228 - 2.28" (5.8 - 58 mm)
Light exposure
ISO sensitivity *
A measure of a photographic film's sensitivity to light.
