The latest advance in Canon Optical Image
Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS, analyzes camera movement and applies the best
shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system automatically
selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod IS modes. When shooting video, the
system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod IS modes. With
Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most
effective IS settings to assure the steadiest possible image.
Normal Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting
Panning Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere
with desired camera movement.
Hybrid Corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically
occurs in macro (close-up) shooting.
Dynamic Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths,
eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking.
Powered Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the
telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified.
Tripod When tripod use is detected, the Image Stabilizer is
stopped because it is not needed.
Good for the price
Good quality for the price but not perfect. Poor low light performance for videos (good for photos) and battery eater.

The compact package makes it easy to handle anywhere. The zoom gets in nice and close to get the details. The HD video adds versatility and eliminates the need to carry two cameras. The pixel quality is at the top. Unfortunately, the battery life only gets you around 20 pictures, and you need to have spare sets on hand. The software is a little difficult to navigate and save pictures to disc.

Worst Canon Product purchased
Purchased this camera 10/2012. For 2 months, it worked fine. Now, every time I turn it on, I have to reset the date as it goes back to 00/00/2012, time is 00:00 and zone does not show . I have missed many photo opportunities because of this. All of my photos are kept in date folders and it is important for the date I set to hold. This is my 5th Canon camera and very disappointed with this one.

incompatible with windows 7
Are you serious? No patch available for Windows seven compatibility? So my images are non transferable. Great...I may as well throw it away.
