The power of 12x zoom.

High performance optics
A powerful 12x optical zoom lens features Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology to counteract camera shake. An Ultrasonic Motor (USM) ensures fast and near-silent zoom operation*. UD lens technology reduces chromatic aberration for razor-sharp images with superb colour accuracy.

Resolution
A 6.0 Megapixel CCD sensor captures every scene with enough fine detail for large, photo quality prints.

Extensive movie functions
Shoot smooth 30fps VGA quality movies with full audio, or record QVGA movies at 60fps and analyse in sharp slow motion. Make full resolution stills while recording with the Photo in Movie feature.

Cutting-edge technology
Canon's DIGIC II image processor drives rapid 2.3 fps continuous shooting and responsive camera controls. iSAPS technology uses scene information to optimise camera settings before a shot is taken. FlexiZone AF/AE lets you manually select the focus point from almost anywhere in the frame. Super Macro mode allows for millimetre-close focusing on tiny subjects.

Creative shooting
A choice of 20 shooting modes includes Manual mode for complete creative control. 8 Special Scene modes assist with tricky lighting conditions. My Colors allows colour effects to be applied in camera before and after shooting.

Low light performance
ISO 800 allows for flash-free shooting in low light and indoor environments. It also enables shooting at higher shutter speeds, reducing the risk of blur from camera shake and subject movement.

Panoramic photos
Widescreen 16:9 still image recording allows playback on widescreen TV or printing on wide size paper with a SELPHY CP printer.

Large vari-angle LCD
The 2.0" vari-angle LCD lets you frame from creative angles and share playback with friends. Night Display mode enhances screen visibility after dark.

Accessories
A wide range of optional accessories includes wide and tele converter lenses, a lens hood, slave flash and a soft case.

Easy printing
Connect to any PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button for a full colour photo in seconds.

Software and sharing
A comprehensive software suite is included for managing and editing your photos. Share your creations online with 100MB of web space on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY.

Good Good resolution, Good color, good exposure, generally accurate focus, 12x zoom offers excellent 36-432mm range, Image stabilization works well (and can be used in movie mode), Packed with features, Very quiet, Solid construction and good handling, Fast an...
Bad Occasional focus hunting at the telephoto end of the zoom in low light, ISO 800 mode is too noisy to be really useful, ISO 200 noise reduction too strong, No rechargeable batteries supplied in the box, Occasional highlight clipping due to over exposure of...
Bottom line Where the S2 IS offered a huge performance leap over its predecessor, the S3 IS is in reality a minor upgrade, and with good reason; there was a lot less that needed improvement. Aside from the newer sensor, the welcome addition of a direct ISO button...

Canon S3 IS er oppfølgeren til den svært vel motatte S2 IS som kom for et år siden. Kan Canon følge opp suksessen? Er endringene store nok til at det er verdt å oppgradere?...
Bottom line Oss bortskjemte digitalkamerabrukere er vant til nye og revolusjonerende egenskaper i alle nye modeller. Derfor er det litt overraskende at Canon ikke har gjort større endringer på det året som har gått siden S2 IS kom. Samtidig ble vi veldig glade i...
