Canon PowerShot S70 announcement clippings

Built to impress
The commanding 7.1 Megapixel power of the PowerShot S70 captures more than enough detail for full prints exceeding A3 size and effective post-shoot cropping. A new Canon UA lens simultaneously yields hi-fidelity, superb clarity images, a remarkably thin body and an incredibly compact 3.6x optical zoom range.

Framing freedom
The focal length range of 28mm wide-angle to 100mm telephoto (35mm format equivalent) is extendable to an impressive 200mm with use of an optional tele-converter. A macro function allows shots from as close as 4cm.

Creative control
A vast array of features is protected by a remarkably sleek, elegant and superbly finished compact body. Use the SLR-style Mode Dial on the top of the camera to shift quickly and easily between 13 different shooting modes including VGA movie and custom modes. Lossless RAW format file recording is supported for ultimate control.

Processing power
Canon's DIGIC processor executes complex functions at high speed, delivering superb image quality, fast and accurate auto focus and up to 2 frames per second continuous shooting speed. iSAPS instantly analyses the scene and makes adjustments even before the shutter release is pressed, optimising exposure, white balance and auto-focus settings in every shooting situation.

Focus and exposure
The 9-Point Artificial Intelligent Auto Focus (AiAF) system automatically detects your subject from nine fixed focusing areas across the frame, keeping even off-centre subjects in-focus. FlexiZone AF/AE lets you scroll the auto focus area around the frame to select the desired subject and weights exposure accordingly.

Advanced printing
The camera prints directly to all PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible printers. Create beautiful, instant photo prints by connecting camera to printer and pushing the Print/Share button, which also speeds up uploads to any Windows PC.
