Canon?s optical Image Stabilizer technology combats the effects of camera shake, delivering sharp, blur-free shots throughout the camera?s extensive zoom range.

Effortless ease and creative control

The PowerShot SX110 IS features a wide range of 20 shooting modes designed to achieve optimum results in a wide range of lighting conditions ? a great help for users of all levels, from complete novices to more experienced photographers.

Shooting modes include a new Easy Mode, which sees all shooting settings chosen automatically by the camera ? perfect for beginners prone to making unsuitable adjustments.

At the other end of the spectrum, experienced users can switch to full manual control, and customise settings for special effects or unusual lighting.

To keep shots looking sharp, Motion Detection Technology ? activated in High ISO Auto mode ? uses Face Detection Technology, the optical

Image Stabilizer and scene information to identify subject motion and camera-shake. ISO is also optimised for minimum blur and maximum image quality.
