Canon PowerShot SX1 IS announcement clippings


With a Canon 20x wide-angle (28mm) optical zoom lens, the PowerShot SX1 IS tackles everything from long-range telephoto shots to sweeping landscapes. Canon's Ultrasonic Motor combines with Voice Coil Motor technology for near-silent operation and the speed for sports or wildlife subjects. And thanks to Canon's optical Image Stabilizer – which now offers a 4-stop advantage – camera shake blur is avoided even with the zoom fully extended.
The PowerShot SX1 IS features Canon's new DIGIC 4 image processor. As well as ensuring ultra-fast operation and superb, low-noise images, DIGIC 4 drives several intelligent technologies that make great photos easier than ever. People shots benefit from improved Face Detection Technology, which even detects faces positioned at an angle to the camera, or in profile.
Canon's improved Motion Detection Technology delivers fantastic, sharp results by registering camera and subject movement, then automatically adjusting ISO to prevent image blur. Blur is further guarded against by new Servo AF, which continuously adjusts focus on subjects moving towards or away from the camera.
