HS System: 12.1 MP CMOS, DIGIC 6
HS System excels in low light allowing you to capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or a tripod. Advanced DIGIC 6 processing and a high sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor give exceptional image quality in all situations with up to ISO 6400.
Intelligent IS, Enhanced Dynamic IS
Intelligent IS combats camera shake, so all your photos and videos are sharp and detailed even at full zoom or in low light. Enhanced Dynamic IS ensures spectacular steady and realistic movies by powerfully compensating for a much wider range of user movements. Shooting with the zoom extended or in dark conditions can cause camera shake and possibly blurred results. Canon’s pioneering solution is Intelligent IS – an advanced optical (lens-shift) image stabilisation system that delivers sharper and clearer photos and movies. Versatile and fully automatic, it constantly detects your subject and adapts the optical Image Stabilizer to the scene, from seven available modes.
Wi-Fi lets you connect easily with home wireless networks, compatible printers and PCs, as well as portable devices like smartphones and tablets, for fast, convenient, online image sharing.
GPS with A-GPS
GPS tags the location of your photos and videos while the Logger function can keep track of your journey. A-GPS support enables faster location acquisition. Use the supplied Map Utility software to pinpoint shooting locations.
Hybrid Auto, Smart Auto
Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which selects optimal settings from 58 variables (21 in movies). Hybrid Auto lets you take photos with Smart Auto and also captures a 4 second movie clip before each shot – combining them into a fun HD (720p) movie.
Manual, Av and Tv modes
Experiment with different effects using Manual modes (Tv, Av and M), which give you creative control over shutter speed and aperture.
High-speed shooting. Optional waterproof case
