Combine with a Canon Connect Station and you can easily share your photos and movies with the world on social media sites and online albums like irista, plus enjoy watching them with family and friends on an HD TV.

Great people shots
Effortlessly enjoy great shots of friends thanks to Face Detection technology. It detects multiple faces in a single frame making sure they remain in focus and with optimum brightness. Face Detection also ensures natural skin tones even in unusual lighting conditions.

Eco Mode
Great for day trips. Eco Mode reduces battery consumption so you can capture more shots from a single charge of the rechargeable Lithium-ion battery.
