CANON LENS TECHNOLOGY
Canon KNOW HOW ® Leads the Way
in Digital Imaging
In a market crowded with competitive models, Canon is
cutting through and taking the lead with the PowerShot
line of digital cameras. Every day, more and more people
are discovering the superiority of Canon PowerShot digital
cameras. These precision instruments are garnering
accolades from discerning photographers and equipment
reviewers for their elegant designs, ease of use, advanced
features, and, most important, superb image quality.
What’s behind the superior performance of PowerShot
cameras? The answer is Canon Know How.
Among manufacturers of digital cameras, only Canon can
claim all of the following:
■
The most advanced optics technologies, evidenced by
the most comprehensive and highly respected lineup of
professional and consumer still photography and video
lenses in the world
■
Extensive experience as a manufacturer of the world’s
finest professional and advanced amateur film cameras
■
Extensive experience as a manufacturer of the world’s
finest professional and consumer video camcorders
■
Sophisticated LSI (Large-Scale Integration) technology,
providing the ability to rapidly develop, manufacture and
deploy proprietary ASIC processors (Application-Specific
Integrated Circuits)
This considerable in-house expertise gives Canon a unique
advantage. While other manufacturers must depend on
universally available “off-the-shelf” components for their
digital camera designs, Canon can innovate and integrate
using proprietary technologies and a unique perspective
that cannot be easily copied.

Canon Lens Technology
Canon has the world’s foremost lens
technology, backed by a 60-year track
record of innovation and critical acclaim.
Canon optical patents have broken size
and performance barriers with astounding
regularity, constantly elevating industry
standards.
Optical engineering plays a fundamental
role in the design of a digital camera.
Compact digital cameras represent
especially difficult challenges for lens
designers because the CCD sensor, where
the image is formed, is much smaller in
surface area than, for example, a single
frame area of 35mm film. Lenses must
have shorter focal lengths, which means
that while depth-of-field becomes deeper,
depth-of-focus becomes shallower. These
conditions make it essential that the sensor
be positioned with great accuracy. Shallow
depth-of-focus also makes a very flat
image at the sensor plane an absolute
requirement.
Translated to design considerations,
compact digital camera lenses must make
use of the most advanced Aspherical
design technologies to achieve a flatter
image at the focusing plane. During
assembly, lenses must be subjected to
additional fine-adjustment steps at specific

points in the process. New methods of
evaluating image quality factors must be
developed and incorporated in the assembly
process. Components peripheral to the
optical elements, such as the lens drive/
control mechanism, must also be engineered to even greater levels of precision.
Canon is in a unique position to meet the
special optical requirements of digital
cameras. Extremely compact, high-performance lenses, such as those developed for
the Digital ELPH series, demonstrate
Canon’s unmatched Aspherical lens technologies and unparalleled commitment to
precision.
Further evidence of Canon’s commitment
to digital camera optics is the introduction
of the L lens technology to the PowerShot
line. Already proven to deliver exceptional
optical performance in Canon’s professional
EF lenses, the L lenses feature a formidable
combination of advanced technologies:
Ultra Low Dispersion UD and Fluorite lens
elements to absolutely minimize chromatic
aberration (color fringing), Aspherical lens
elements to combat spherical aberration
(image smearing), and Canon’s Super
Spectra Coating to virtually eliminate
ghosting and flare. The results as exemplified by the new PowerShot Pro 1—the first
digital camera to incorporate Canon’s L
lens technology—are dramatic. Images are

A Different Approach To
Image Rendering
While much technical discussion of digital
cameras centers around the optics and
the CCD sensor, the key to superior image
rendering lies in the processing of the
data—analogous to the function of the
human brain. Any attempt to describe a
scene simply in terms of data such as
brightness and color values invariably
falls short of the human experience. The
atmosphere and emotive powers of a
photographic image can only be conveyed
by an intricate assembly of all available
data—one that comprises the intention
behind the data.

standard color spaces so that images
ultimately viewed on a monitor or output
to a printer appear “correct” and pleasing
to our mind’s eye. Canon image rendering
uses proprietary algorithms based on the
industry’s most extensive database of
accumulated imaging data. Observed in
standard color spaces, for example, reds
remain bold, greens are vibrant, and blue
skies are crystal clear, as we remember
them to be.
Canon image rendering technology aims
to reproduce colors so that the result
conveys the emotional intent of the
photographer—colors attractive to the
eye; colors that recreate the atmosphere
of a scene; beautiful colors as they reside
in our memory.
If the image captured by a digital camera
simply presented “natural” colors as
measured by the sensor, the result would
not be pleasing to viewers. The first step
in Canon’s image rendering, therefore, is
the conversion of captured color data to

Reproduction Pleasing
To The Eye
Some digital camera manufacturers simply
boost color densities and contrast—e.g.,
making whites “whiter” and blues “bluer”
—to lend “brilliance” to the images. Such
images may be superficially appealing,
but they lack the tonal quality and definition that make a scene truly pleasing to
behold.
“Beautiful to the eye” is the guiding
principle behind Canon image rendering
techniques. Canon’s tonal curves achieve
a delicate balance so that images appear
colorful and brilliant without sacrificing
the subtleties that convey quality.

Reproduction of

“Atmosphere”
Human perception goes beyond simple
parameters, such as brightness and color.
Reproducing the “atmosphere” of a scene
—capturing the intentions of the photographer—therefore, cannot be achieved
with simplistic AE (Auto Exposure) and AWB
(Auto White Balance) algorithms.
Canon image rendering takes advantage
of the huge store of AE data cultivated
from the development of evaluative
metering systems used in film cameras.
Canon’s Intelligent AE system is thus

remarkably successful at predicting the
intentions of the photographer,
producing the best exposures even under
difficult lighting conditions.
Intelligent AWB is another important
component of Canon’s image rendering
system. Canon’s unsurpassed know-how
in both conventional film photography
and videography makes it possible to
implement advanced algorithms that
consistently achieve natural color balance.
By maintaining this delicate balance over
a wide range of lighting conditions,
PowerShot cameras represent the closest
approach to human perception.
The Development of the
Canon ≥Imaging
Processor
Early in the development of the PowerShot
line, Canon realized it was necessary to
develop its own specialized image processing
IC. While other manufacturers rushed to
market using off-the-shelf LSI processors,
Canon concentrated on developing its own
digital image processing technologies.
Canon’s first digital image processing IC
made its debut in the PowerShot S10 in 1999.
In the fall of 2002, Canon announced the next
major advance in image processors: DIGIC.
Among optical manufacturers, only Canon
possesses the requisite know-how—both
a background in advanced signal processing
technologies and the ability to develop
LSI chips in short timeframes—to create a
processor as sophisticated as DIGIC.
Super-Fast Processing
Speed with HighCapacity Buffering
The general-purpose image processor
used in most digital cameras perform
pixel operations in a single serial stream
of data, i.e., one at a time. By contrast,
Canon’s DIGIC operates in parallel mode:
numerous pixels are processed simultaneously with each clock cycle. It can, there-

fore, perform image processing functions
with exceptional speed that cannot be
matched by conventional designs.
In Canon PowerShot cameras, DIGIC’s
high-speed signal processing is combined
with high-capacity buffering. The result is
fast response and continuous shooting
capability unmatched by other digital
cameras. An added benefit of DIGIC’s
high-speed processing capability is a
movie mode that offers higher image
resolution and longer recording times.

Longer Battery Life
Image processing is one of the major
functions in a digital camera that drain
battery power. DIGIC is an inherently
efficient design and far outperforms
general-purpose processor chips in this
regard. Independent comparison tests
confirm that Canon PowerShot cameras
with DIGIC are significantly less batteryhungry than competitive digital cameras.
Superior Dynamic
Range
Canon’s DIGIC proves that white saturation
(“blown highlights”) is more often caused
by inappropriate image processing than
by any inherent limitation of the CCD sensor.
Identical images taken with and without
DIGIC processing, using the same CCD,
demonstrate entirely different levels of
white saturation. Pictures taken with
PowerShot cameras are, therefore, far less
likely to exhibit this phenomenon.
While CCD sensors do exhibit a certain
amount of inherent noise, what many
reviewers and other experts often refer to
as CCD noise is, in fact, largely noise
generated during image processing.
Canon’s precision approach prevents any
extraneous noise from being generated.
DIGIC’s high-speed processing capability
is used to perform an enormous number
of calculations. (The more precise the
calculation, the fewer the errors. Errors
represent deviation from the original
signal—i.e., noise.) DIGIC also employs
advanced algorithms that enhance resolution
without increasing noise, shattering yet
another commonly held notion—that
signal-to-noise ratio can only be improved
at the expense of resolution.
Compared to other manufacturers’ models
with comparable CCD sensors, Canon
PowerShot cameras with DIGIC deliver
superior image quality that is easily
demonstrable.

iSAPS Technology
iSAPS (Intelligent Scene Analysis based
on Photographic Space ) is the culmination
of Canon know-how, gained over 60 years
and the manufacture of over 150 million
cameras. It is a technology that applies
statistical analysis to dramatically improve
the performance of AF (Autofocus), AE
(Auto Exposure ), and AWB (Auto White
Balance).
Canon’s photographic “space” is based
on a huge volume of data. By analyzing
the frequency and parameters at which
users took photographs, Canon was able
to arrive at a statistical relationship
among focal length, focus distance, scene
brightness, and other factors. Equipped
with statistical frequencies for different
combinations of these factors and
advanced prediction algorithms, Canon
PowerShot cameras can optimize
AF/AE/AWB settings for any given scene
more rapidly and more effectively.

(compared to 8-bit/11kHz for previous
models).

Using the latest Canon high-speed movie
processing algorithms and taking advantage
of the new high-speed CF media, the
PowerShot S1 IS can record longer movies
than any previous model. Depending on the
CF card capacity and selected movie mode,
continuous movies of up to approximately
60 minutes (1GB) can be recorded.

Intelligent Orientation Sensor
This advanced sensor provides an
important piece of information to
the ≥ Imaging Processor:
whether the picture is being taken
horizontally or vertically. PowerShot
cameras use this information to
make appropriate compensations
in Autofocus, Auto Exposure, and
Auto White Balance, thereby
eliminating the typical errors that
6
IMAGE STABILIZER/

occur with less sophisticated
systems when shooting vertically.
Moreover, because this information
is retained for each recorded image,
pictures are properly oriented in
playback, whether on the camera’s
screen or the user’s computer
monitor.
Canon’s sophisticated optical image
stabilizer technology has been employed
with great success in a wide variety of
Canon products, from binoculars and
camcorders to professional broadcast
video and professional still photography
telephoto/zoom lenses.
The Canon Image Stabilizer uses miniature
gyroscopic sensors to detect motion and
generate a corrective signal. An image
stabilizing lens group along the optical
axis is shifted in response to the detected
motion, providing effective cancellation of
unwanted lens movement and vibration.

The PowerShot S1 IS marks the first
application of Canon Image Stabilizer
technology in the PowerShot S-series line.
Users of this camera will welcome this feature because of its 10x optical zoom, its
advanced movie modes (see below), and
the fact that the Image Stabilizer can be
used for either still or movie shooting.
Advanced Movie Modes
The ability to shoot the occasional movie
clip with a digital camera is becoming an
increasingly desirable feature. Yet, most
digital cameras offer limited movie
capabilities. Canon PowerShot cameras
with the ≥ Imaging Processor provide
superior movie with sound capabilities,
offering higher resolution recording
modes and longer recording times than
competitive models.
The new PowerShot S1 IS raises the bar
farther still, giving the user the ability to
capture smooth full-motion (30 frame-persecond) video at full VGA resolution (640
x 480 pixels). The user can even choose
VGA-Fine recording at this frame rate,
which yields even better picture quality by
lowering the compression rate. This
advanced movie mode also offers improved
sound quality, recording at 16-bit
Further advanced movie capabilities of
the PowerShot S1 IS include the ability to
make full use of the camera’s high-speed
AE/AF/AWB modes during movie shooting.
The user also has full use of the camera’s
zoom, AF lock, exposure lock, and exposure
compensation controls during movie
recording—something not possible with
previous digital cameras.
The AF and 10x zoom operate smoothly,
quietly, and at high-speed thanks to the
micro motor USM drive, another Canon
exclusive. The miniaturized
USM drive also contributes
to the highly compact
design of the camera.
Versatile Movie Editing
and Playback Functions
All PowerShot cameras enable the user to
perform basic editing of recorded movie
clips. Selected portions can be deleted
from the beginning and/or end of scenes.
This feature can be used, for example, to
free up space on a CF card.
The user can also take advantage of
numerous navigation features during movie
playback, such as viewing the first or last
frame, moving to the next or previous
frame, and fast-forwarding or rewinding.

subjects without reframing the shot. When spot metering is
selected, the user can choose to measure exposure at the chosen
AF point or at the center of the frame, providing the maximum
flexibility in handling difficult lighting situations.
The user can select a favorite
combination of photo settings and
save them in this preset for
instant recall when desired.

These high-quality converter lenses simply attach to the front of
the lens with select PowerShot cameras. Wide converters are ideal
for such shooting situations as group portraits and outdoor
scenics. Tele Converters enable photographers to
get optically closer to distant subjects. Both
augment the built-in zoom range on PowerShot
cameras. Canon precision optical
engineering ensures superior
edge-to-edge image sharpness
and contrast unmatched by
generic brands.
Note: When using the Converter lenses, we
recommend using the LCD monitor to preview
composition and refraining from the use of the built-in
flash to avoid harsh shadows in the resulting photos.
Aperture Priority
The user sets the aperture,
controlling depth-of-field. The
camera automatically selects the
appropriate shutter speed.
Shutter Speed Priority
The user selects the shutter speed,
and the camera automatically
selects the appropriate aperture.
Ideal for sports, this setting uses
high shutter speeds to stop the
action of fast-moving subjects.
Slow Shutter
The camera sets a slow shutter
speed to intentionally blur moving
subjects or otherwise create
dramatic long-exposure effects.
Stitch Assist
Program
The camera automatically and
intelligently selects the aperture/
shutter speed combination based
on shooting condition.
Cross-Configured Button
PowerShot cameras that feature the crossconfigured button give users an easy,
intuitive way to access various operating
features. Falling naturally under the
thumb, this 4-way control simplifies menu
navigation and function selection.
Slow-sync flash is expertly combined with appropriate ambient
light exposure to properly expose
both subject and background.
High-Speed Shutter
Multi-Point AiAF
Canon’s wide-area AiAF automatically selects
one or more focusing points based on the position
of the subject within the frame. This feature
works in conjunction with iSAPS Technology
(see page 6) to more quickly and accurately
achieve autofocus under a wide variety of
shooting conditions. Out-of-focus pictures when
the subject is not centered are virtually a thing
of the past.
The camera uses smaller apertures
when possible for increased depthof-field.
Auto
The camera sets all parameters for
the user, providing point-and-shoot
simplicity.
Easy-to-use guidelines simplify the
shooting of aligned multiple frames
that can later be combined (using
bundled software ) to create
panoramic photos.
Movie
The user can shoot 15 fps minimovies with sound. Among the
choices are VGA mode (640 x 480 )
movie clips up to 30 seconds in
length and QVGA mode (320 x 240 )
movie up to 3 minutes in length
( VGA mode is now available in
most PowerShot models.)

Innovative Features
Canon PowerShot cameras are technological marvels, loaded with sophisticated automatic features that deliver superb digital pictures
with supreme ease of use. Advanced users who prefer to make their own photographic choices will also be impressed by the tremendous
range of available creative control.
ADVANCED CAPABILITIES
Special Scene Mode
Primary Color Filter
White Balance Selector
PowerShot cameras with Special Scene
Mode give you advanced presets to
ensure you get the best possible photos
under a number of difficult shooting
conditions. Simply select a preset, and
the camera will automatically make the
necessary settings to let you capture
sensational, professional-looking images.
Canon’s newest PowerShot cameras
employ primary color filters to
ensure true color reproduction.
Moreover, Canon’s advanced
≥Imaging Processor delivers
all of the luminance advantages
of a primary color filter without
any of the noise associated with less sophisticated designs. The
resulting colors are true to life – brilliant and absolutely radiant.
In the auto mode, PowerShot cameras provide superb automatic
white balance compensation using iSAPS Technology (see page
6). However, the user can also select from preset modes covering
common lighting conditions – i.e., daylight, cloudy, tungsten,
fluorescent and fluorescent H. In addition, the photographer can
perform a manual white balance by shooting a white reference
target; the measurement can be stored as a custom setting for
later recall.
Sunny: For shooting outdoors on sunny days.
Cloudy: For shooting outdoors on cloudy days.
Underwater—Use with the
Foliage—Capture brilliant shots of autumn foliage, greenery, blossoms, flowers.
Indoor—Reduces blur

accuracy when shooting
handheld indoors with typical
room lighting.
Snow—Shoot clear
snow scenes without
darkened subjects and bluish

optional waterproof case to capture
superb underwater images with reduced
backscatter effect.*
Beach—Get clear shots
of people at a sunny
beach without the darkened

The exclusive Canon ≥Imaging Processor also makes possible
RAW mode recording. Advanced users can utilize this mode to
capture images in a file format that offers the highest quality with
minimal in-camera processing. RAW files can be previewed, transferred, and converted to other formats using software bundled
with the camera. The Pro 1, G5, S1 IS and S50 can shoot RAW files.
By putting their PowerShot cameras inside these specially
designed protective cases, users can take the excitement of
digital photography underwater. They enable underwater
shooting to a depth of up to 100 ft./130 ft.
12
Fluorescent: Compensates for the greenish cast caused by
common fluorescent tubes.
Fluorescent H: For recording under daylight fluorescent
lighting.
Flash: A good starting point with many studio strobes.
Exposure Metering
AE/AF Lock
Advanced photographers can select one of three light-metering
modes: evaluative metering, center-weighted average metering,
or spot metering. The spot metering mode provides an exceptional
degree of control, enabling the measurement to be tied
to the AF point or fixed at the center of the frame.
A light touch on the shutter release button locks in AE and AF.
This is a fast and easy way for the photographer to control
exposure and focus without sacrificing the freedom to compose
the shot creatively.
Fireworks—Grab
brilliant images of
skyrocketing fireworks.

Tungsten: Provides a good balance with photofloods or
incandescent household lights.
ISO Setting
Canon PowerShot cameras provide the user with a range of ISO
equivalent settings. As with film, the lowest possible ISO setting
possible for the shooting conditions will yield the best image
quality.
In most shooting modes, the camera will automatically select the
best ISO setting to suit the conditions. However, in manual and
advanced shooting modes, the photographer can set the ISO to
50, 100, 200 or 400.
International User Interface with
12-Language Support
The user can select any one of 12 languages for on-screen menu
text. The interface choices include English, German, French,
Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Spanish,
Chinese and Japanese.
Record Audio Memos
While replaying photos, users can attach audio memos in WAVE
format of up to 60 seconds for each image. Great for making technical
notes or clueing future generations in on the subject matter.

Advanced Capabilities
RAW Mode Capability
Photo Effect Mode
This advanced Canon AF system combines the best of two different
autofocusing methods. An external metering (triangulation)
method is used to perform initial general focusing. This is
immediately followed by the more traditional TTL (contrast detection)
method to fine-adjust the focusing. This yields both speed and
precision of autofocusing that cannot be achieved with either
method alone.
Users seeking advanced creative effects will
appreciate the Photo Effect Mode, which
provides 5 settings that can be used when
shooting either still images and/or movie
clips. There is an additional custom mode
that allows the user to create a unique look.
The custom settings can be saved and
recalled when desired.
Noise-Reduction
Medium
Flash Exposure Compensation
Automatic Flash Exposure may be adjusted up to +/- 2 stops in
1/3-stop increments depending on shooting conditions.
Manually Adjustable Flash
Under certain shooting conditions, the user may want to
manually change the flash strength. This feature allows the flash to
be set to one of 3 levels – weak, medium or strong.
Quick Shot Function
This function allows the user to fire the
shutter immediately after pushing the
shutter button, in one stroke. When this
function is used, the focus is optimized
according to the scene being shot.
Movie Editing
From start-point to mid-point or from mid-point to end-point,
the user can edit or erase unwanted movie clips right in the
camera and enjoy VCR-like playback.
Mute Mode
Mute Mode inhibits all sounds except the
warning sound with a one-touch operation.
Shooting will be possible even in
locations where silence is necessary.
14
The Noise-Reduction function reduces
noise with slow shutter speed to
achieve improved image quality even in
dark situations. (When shutter speed is
set between 1.3 sec and 15 sec.)
Adobe RGB
Recognizing that the very high-quality images produced by
PowerShot cameras could well be destined for printed documents,
y
Canon has built in the option to record
Adobe RGB
images in the Adobe RGB color space
sRGB
(available only with PowerShot Pro1,
RAW mode capture and the Creative
Zone). This ensures the widest possible
range of colors when the images are later
processed for reproduction on commercial
four-color printing presses.

Detailed Information Display
All PowerShot cameras feature easyto-see display. All the necessary
information is conveniently displayed
as icons.
The flash built into PowerShot cameras
employs Canon’s elegant light guide
technology, which ensures high flash
output and uniform coverage in
remarkably little space.

Safety Shift
When shooting in the shutter speed priority or aperture priority
mode, the user will often encounter lighting conditions where the
proper exposure cannot be obtained within the range of available
aperture or shutter speed values. The Safety Shift feature (which
can be disabled via the camera function menu) momentarily
overrides the user priority setting and automatically changes shutter
speed or aperture as required to ensure optimum exposure.
Light Guide Flash with
Multiple Flash Modes
First curtain sync
Five flash modes enable the user to
turn the flash and auto red-eye
reduction on and off in any combination.
Advanced photographers will appreciate
the choice of “first curtain” or “second
Second curtain sync
curtain” sync. Flash strength can also
be set manually to any of 3 levels. When using
external slave flash units, the user can turn off the camera’s
pre-flash to avoid false tripping of the slaves.
Advanced Capabilities
Hybrid AF System
Magnified Playback
AE and Focus Bracketing
Professional photographers frequently bracket their shots to make
sure they capture a desired effect. The auto-bracketing feature on
PowerShot cameras works not only with AE but also with AF.
A single shutter release triggers three quick shots, one properly
exposed, one underexposed, and one overexposed. The userselectable bracket range can be up to two full stops from the
normal setting in 1/3-stop increments. Focus bracketing also
takes three shots, shifting the AF point from behind to in front of the
target with user-selectable increments of small, medium or large.

Vari-Angle LCD Monitor
During playback, images on the LCD
monitor can be magnified to reveal
greater detail. Users can zoom into
the image with magnifications
ranging from 2x to 10x, scrolling
at any point to view any desired
part of the frame.
Interval Shooting
The camera can be programmed to automatically shoot a sequence
of photos at fixed time intervals. Two to 100 images can be captured
at intervals from 1 to 60 minutes. This is a great feature for
photographic studies and many other situations that call for
unattended sequential picture-taking.

The screen conveniently flips

SOFTWARE
Direct Transfer (Windows)
PowerShot cameras with the Print/Share button greatly simplify
the transfer of image files to a Windows computer. With the
software installed and the camera connected to the PC, the
user needs only to press the Print/Share button to
initiate the file transfer process. A menu will
appear on the camera’s LCD, giving the user several
choices: 1) transfer all stored images, 2) transfer
only those images not yet sent, 3) transfer only
those images selected via the DPOF transfer
order, 4) transfer only specifically selected
images (one at a time), or 5) transfer a
selected image and make it the PC’s
“Wallpaper”.
Microsoft, Windows and the Windows logo are trademarks, or registered trademarks of Microsoft Corporation
in the United States and/ or other countries. All other brands and product names are registered trademarks or
trademarks of their respective owners. The Designed for Microsoft ® Windows® XP logo refers to the digital
camera and its driver only.
Exif Print Support
In addition to various direct print options
(see page 8), Canon PowerShot cameras support the Exif
(Exchangeable Image Format File) Print, a new worldwide
standard for high-quality digital photo printing. With each
image captured, camera settings and shooting conditions are
saved in the JPEG file. Then, Exif-aware software (including
PowerShot software) and printers (including Canon Direct
Photo and Card Photo Printers) use the data to automatically
adjust output settings, delivering optimized images that more
accurately reflect the photographer’s original intent.
NTSC and PAL Compatibility
The video output on PowerShot cameras can be set to either
the NTSC or PAL standard, making it possible to view images
on a TV monitor just about anywhere in the world.
