The sleek PowerShot S3 IS digital camera offers you high resolution, an extra-long zoom, advanced yet easy-to-use movie functions plus great new shooting options. Also, with Image Stabilizer technology, images and movies taken with the S3 IS are sharp and smooth, even when the camera gets jostled. It's everything you need to capture the fun, excitement and beauty of your active life - wherever it takes you!

Great features, amazing resolution, fantastic zoom - Feature-rich, compact 6.0 Megapixel digital camera with super long 12x Optical Zoom and UD Lens. Engineered with Canon's sophisticated Image Stabilizer technology, the S3 IS Digital ELPH gives you the shake-free performance that makes your pictures sharp and clear. No matter how close you zoom in, the S3 IS Digital ELPH keeps everything stable. 

Awesome, steady shooting with phenomenal clarity - Canon Optical Image Stabilizer technology and ISO 800 for steady shooting and excellent sharpness and color. This is a camera that could make it on looks alone. But wait until you see its performance. The 12x optical zoom brings you in for intimate close-ups. The 6.0 megapixel CCD produces images of impressive quality with resolution that lets you create big prints.

Because great shots can happen anytime - Exclusive MovieSnap feature allows for taking still images while shooting movies. Now there's no need to interrupt your movie when you see a great shot. With the S3 IS's MovieSnap feature, you can simply press the shutter to capture a full 6.0 megapixel still image at any time while recording a movie.

Create high-quality movies with the touch of a button - With the new Movie Button, record high-quality 60 fps QVGA (320 x 240) continuous movies without switching modes, and use advanced features such as optical zooming during the movie and Stereo Sound. Now you can produce high-quality, 60 frames-per-second movies without switching modes. Canon's new Movie button gives you access to all the advanced features you want for making movies like optical zoom. You'll hear the difference, too: the S3 IS is equipped to record in stereo, with a high sampling rate, adjustable microphone level setting and wind filter option for excellent sound quality.
