Canon PowerShot SX100 IS released - Better photos for all the family is the promise of the new SX range of compacts from Canon.
From holidays to family gatherings, the PowerShot SX100 IS is the perfect accessory to help you capture those moments that make every day special. Packed with features to help novice or very young photographers get better results, the camera includes a powerful zoom that picks even the smallest faces out of a crowd. With a compact design that fits in anyone's hand, this affordable camera makes photography fun for the whole family! Thanks to its 10x zoom lens with optical Image Stabilizer, the PowerShot SX100 IS takes stunning pictures from any distance. Pressing the new Face Selector button activates Canon's Face Select and Track feature which allows you to select a single face in a crowd - on the beach or at a school play - and keeps it properly focused and exposed. With features for better low-light shots and easy red-eye removal, the PowerShot SX100 IS is perfectly equipped for any family shooting situation. The camera's Long Play movie mode even lets you record long movies that take up less memory.
