Canon PowerShot S3 IS
Canon's PowerShot S3 IS, styled in gunmetal grey, is the latest addition to the PowerShot S-series, the third generation in their "super zoom" digital camera range.

The 12x optical zoom lens can be supplemented with the optional lens adapter, which allows the optical zoom to be boosted to a fantastic 24x. Besides, the Optical Image Stabilizer makes sure tele-photographs don't end up looking fuzzy.

The Canon PowerShot S3 IS has a 2-inch LCD panel, which can be turned and twisted in multiple directions-a great feature for experimenting with new shot angles. What sets the camera apart is its capability to capture video-at 30fps, VGA quality, and up to 1 GB with stereo sound-really neat for a still camera. The camera has a dedicated movie button, making switching between modes convenient. 

The S3 IS comes with a plethora of shooting modes including full manual, Aperture Priority and Shutter priority, making for complete shooting flexibility. Unique features such as Colour Accent and Colour Swap result in fantastic effects. Apart from these, there are also the regular predefined shooting modes-night, snow, fireworks, and so on.

The new 6 MP CCD sensor now supports speeds from ISO 80 to 800, enhancing low-light shooting capabilities.
