Canon Technology Ensures High Quality Images

Exclusive Canon DiG!C Image Processor and iSAPS Technology for Superior Image Quality and Faster Processing Speed


DIG!C Image Processor

Canon's exclusive DIGIC Image Processor revolutionized how you shoot digital by allowing the camera to process images faster and improving the accuracy of the autofocus. DIGIC also reduces the effects on noise in your images.


iSAPS Technology is an entirely new scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.


Print/Share Button

The S70's Print/Share button makes direct printing easier than ever. Simply connect the S70 to a Canon Direct Photo Printer or PictBridge supported printer, press the Print/Share button and print! Also use the Print/Share button to transfer images directly to a computer (Windows).


ID Photo & Movie Print

The camera gives you a host of fun and useful print features. Create ID photo prints in 28 sizes or use the Movie Print function to print multiple stills from a recorded movie on a single sheet from a Canon CP Printer.



The Card Photo Printers CP330, CP220, CP-300 and CP-200 support PictBridge, a new print standard. This standard enables any digital camera that supports PictBridge to connect and print to any PictBridge compliant printer
