Take better photos in the dark
Canon’s new High Sensitivity System shines in low-light situations by enhancing image quality while helping to minimize noise. Whether it’s twilight, indoors or shooting at a distance, you can get pictures that are sharp and clear. Just imagine the spectacular shots you can capture at the next big concert. By combining a powerful CMOS sensor and DiG!C Image Processor, the HS System makes PowerShot cameras dramatically more sensitive than those with identical megapixel counts. Great shots in low-light – now that’s a really bright idea
The secret to Canon’s High Sensitivity System
How does Canon do it? The magic comes from combining the back-illuminated CMOS sensor with Canon's legendary DiG!C processor. Working seamlessly together, these create the Canon High Sensitivity System that lets you take amazing low light photos without a flash. Increased sensitivity demands a higher ISO speed and the HS System helps deliver with higher maximum ISO. Blur and camera shake are also notably reduced for the ultimate in sharpness and clarity.
There’s more to megapixels
Canon’s HS System provides dramatically greater sensitivity than your average camera with identical or greater megapixel counts. That means you don’t need excessive megapixels to achieve spectacular images with minimal noise.
