The power to take you anywhere.
The power to take
you anywhere.
As big as your vision.
As small as your pocket.
Get the best of both worlds with the PowerShot S70
and S60 – two truly portable digital cameras that
combine an extremely compact body with incredibly
high technical capability.
BUILT TO IMPRESS
The PowerShot S70 and S60 provide more than enough power to
capture every nuance of every shot. The S70 is driven by a mighty
7.1 megapixel CCD sensor while the S60 gives you a full 5.0 megapixels
to play with. The new Canon UA (ultra-high refractive index aspherical
lens) 3.6x wide-angle optical zoom lens helps you achieve perfect
compositions, while Canon’s unique iSAPS technology optimises all
your shooting settings. Canon’s DIGIC processor links the camera’s
different functions, working at incredible speed to process your images
almost instantaneously. 13 shooting modes and a wide range of
optional accessories means the PowerShot S70 and S60 are built
for big imaginations.
DESIGNED TO TRAVEL
These pocket-sized wonders pack all of their advanced technological
features into remarkably sleek, elegant and compact designs.
The stunning black metal finish of the S70 is matched only by the
beautiful low contrast two-tone brushed steel casing of the S60.
Both cameras feature a sliding lens cover that is the essence of
sophisticated simplicity, while their broad curves soften the easy-to-use
flat capsule shape. The new Canon UA lens ensures they retain their
slim profile while offering 3.6x optical zoom and 28mm equivalent
wide-angle capability. The fine detailing evident on their chrome-plated
brand marks and strap eyelets make the PowerShot S70 and S60 as
attractive on the outside as they are on the inside.
actual size
As powerful as
your imagination.
The technical genius behind these cameras is the result of over sixty years
of optical heritage and advanced Canon Visionary Technologies.
With its 5.0 megapixel CCD, the PowerShot S60
can easily capture the smallest details and
reproduce them with stunning accuracy.
The S70 gives you even more pixels – and the flexibility to crop
your images to match your vision. With these remarkable cameras
you’ll soon discover there’s more than enough resolution to
impress, letting you print anywhere from postcard size to A3+
(A3 for the PowerShot S60).
iSAPS TECHNOLOGY
As soon as you press the shutter, Canon’s unique iSAPS
(Intelligent Scene Analysis based on Photographic Space)
evaluates your composition against a vast in-camera database
of different images and settings. In a fraction of a second it
establishes a statistical relationship between factors such as
focal length and scene brightness. This dramatically improves
the camera’s ability to interpret shooting situations and deliver
brilliant images without delay.

COLOUR RENDERING
The Canon Image Rendering technology in the PowerShot S70
and S60 uses complex algorithms based on an extensive database
of imaging information to capture colour data and convert it to
standard colour spaces. Either on a monitor or on the printed page,
you’ll be amazed at how natural skin tones are, how vibrantly reds
and greens reproduce, and how crystal-clear blue skies appear.
In short, colours are just as they are in your mind’s eye.
HIGH SPEED DIGIC PROCESSOR
Canon’s unique DIGIC processor puts the power into the
PowerShot S70 and S60. It works at consistently high speeds,
executing complex processing functions for optimal performance
every time you take a shot. This results in superb image clarity,
faster and more accurate auto focus performance, up to 2 frames
per second continuous shooting speed and more responsive
camera controls. By making the PowerShot S70 and S60 run so
smoothly, the DIGIC processor also allows for extended battery
life, so you can shoot for longer on a single battery charge.
3.6X WIDE-ANGLE
OPTICAL ZOOM
NEW CANON ORIGINAL UA LENS
Canon’s leadership position in the field of optical
engineering is confirmed yet again with the introduction
of the new Canon original UA lens – a glass-moulded aspherical lens
with an ultra-high refractive index. With this remarkable new lens, the
PowerShot S70 and S60 can offer a focal length that ranges from
28mm wide-angle to 100mm telephoto (in 35mm format equivalent)
while still maintaining a slim, portable design.
The 3.6x wide-angle optical zoom lens consists of 8 elements in 7 groups
(including 1 UA lens)
With a 28mm equivalent
wide angle the PowerShot S70 and S60’s
3.6x optical zoom lens is ideal for shooting
everything from landscapes to portraits.
Added to this is the 4.1x digital zoom
bringing the combined zooming factor
to approximately 15x for both models.
28mm equivalent
100mm equivalent
4CM MACRO FUNCTION
The PowerShot S70 and S60 also feature a macro
function that allows you to take photographs from as
close as 4cm, whilst still maintaining accurate focus.
As much freedom
as you need.
The PowerShot S70 and S60’s 13 different intelligent shooting modes give you
remarkable photographic freedom. 5 creative modes, including a fully manual
mode allow you to explore your creative instincts, while 8 automatic modes give you
the peace-of-mind that comes with knowing you’ll never miss a shot. The SLR-style
Mode Dial on the top of the camera makes it quick and easy to shift between modes.
▼
PORTRAIT
AUTO
A larger aperture is chosen
for reduced depth-of-field,
ensuring any distracting
background is blurred and
the subject is perfectly
in focus.
The camera selects all the parameters
based on the shooting conditions, so you
can just point and shoot.
▼
LANDSCAPE
In this mode, a smaller aperture is chosen
for increased depth-of-field, so both
foreground and background are in focus.
NIGHT SCENE
Flash and available light are carefully
balanced by using a slow shutter speed
to capture all the background details,
while the subject is illuminated with a
fill-in flash.
FAST SHUTTER
SLOW SHUTTER
▼
A fast shutter speed allows you
to freeze fast-moving subjects.
This feature lets you shoot moving
objects to create a dramatic blur effect
and the appearance of motion.
PROGRAM AE
The camera automatically
sets both the shutter speed
and aperture. You control all
the other parameters such
as white balance and flash.
▼
SHUTTER PRIORITY AE*
▼
In this mode you can freeze a moving subject
or create a blurred, flowing effect by controlling
the shutter speed. The camera automatically
selects the best aperture based on the
available light.
APERTURE PRIORITY AE*
You control the depth-of-field with this mode by setting
the aperture. The camera then automatically selects the
appropriate shutter speed for perfect exposure.
* Switching on the safety shift function when in Aperture Priority AE or
Shutter Priority AE Mode protects against over or underexposure by
automatically shifting the settings to compensate for the shooting
conditions. The settings will only be shifted as far as necessary in
order to stay as close to your intended effect as possible.
▼
MANUAL
When you want complete control, this
allows you to set all the parameters for
your shot, including aperture, shutter
speed and focus.
CUSTOM
The PowerShot S70 and S60 have a
custom mode where you can save your
own combination of settings for future
use. This allows for a quick set-up time,
meaning you’re less likely to miss those
once-in-a-lifetime shots.
▼
STITCH ASSIST
MOVIE
This mode lets you shoot up to 3 minutes
of movie footage, with sound, at 15 frames
per second (10 frames per second in VGA).
You can then play it back and edit it
instantaneously using the camera’s LCD.
Using the supplied PhotoStitch software, this feature lets you shoot a sequence of up to 26 images and then merge
them together into a larger image to create long panoramas.
As advanced
as they are compact.
9-POINT AiAF
▼
Even more technical features to ensure you get the shot you want.
RAW MODE
The PowerShot S70 and S60 use Canon’s
9-Point Artificial Intelligent Auto Focus
(AiAF) system to automatically detect
your subject from nine fixed focusing
areas across your shooting scene. This
means your subject will be sharp and
in focus, even if it’s off-centre.
When shooting in RAW mode, maximum
image data can be recorded with loss-less
(reversible) compression and therefore
suffer no reduction in definition. When
downloaded to your computer, your
image can then be manipulated and
edited as you like. You can even save
an image as a RAW file immediately
after shooting it as a JPEG.
INTELLIGENT
ORIENTATION SENSOR ▼
A tiny sensor in the PowerShot S70 and
S60 detects the camera’s orientation –
whether portrait or landscape – whenever
a shot is taken. This gives more accurate
AE and AWB – compensating, for example,
for brighter sky at the top of an image. It
also ensures shots are displayed the right
way up when reviewed on the camera’s
LCD or when downloaded to a PC.
▼
FLEXIZONE AF/AE
CONTINUOUS SHOOTING
The FlexiZone AF/AE function lets you
freely scroll the auto focus area around
the scene to select the subject you
want to focus on. Your exposure is
then automatically weighted for your
selected subject.
Using this feature allows you to shoot at
high speed (approximately 2 frames per
second, up to 15 images in High Speed
mode (8 images for the PowerShot S60)),
to make sure you capture that perfect
moment as it happens.
INTERVALOMETER
MEMORY CARD
The intervalometer function automatically
captures up to 100 shots (depending on
memory card capacity) at intervals
between 1 and 60 minutes. This is
perfect for time-lapse photography, such
as capturing the image sequence of an
opening flower bud.
The PowerShot S70 and S60 use a
CompactFlash Type I or Type II memory
card to store digital photos and movies.
Being Type II compatible means that
large capacity Microdrive™ cards,
available up to 4GB size, can be used.
As easy to print
as it is to share.
Once you’ve taken your shots, there’s a number of ways to show them off. Direct
Printing is quick and easy, while the CANON iMAGE GATEWAY and software packages
(included with the camera for use on either PC or Mac) offer even more possibilities.
