Canon PowerShot S2 IS announcement clippings

The S2 IS is equipped with an approximately 5.0 million camera effective pixel 1/2.5-inch Charge Coupled Device (CCD). Also, with "DIGIC II", higher resolution and high-speed processing were achieved and the startup time and response time were shortened.

The camera comes with a 12x optical zoom lens, which covers a 35 mm film equivalent focal length ranging from 36 mm to 432 mm, and has an f/2.7 to f/3.5 aperture.

By incorporating a UD (Ultra Low Dispersion) lens into the lens element, the chromatic aberration was reduced.

The Print/Share button lets you easily print your images and download images directly from the camera to a computer (Windows® /Mac OS X) by connecting the camera directly to a direct print compatible printer or connecting the camera to the computer. It complies with the PictBridge industry standard and has an additional function for multiple image layout.
