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 help capture the steadiest possible image.
Normal Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills.
Panning Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere with desired camera movement.
Macro (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 fast family camera
Bought this camera from Costco a couple of months ago. Good camera to take pictures and videos of the kids. Very easy to use; good zoom. Would recommend to anybody who wants/needs a family camera.

Huge waste of money
Worst purchase I made all year! I bought this camera at Best Buy at the suggestion of the salesman. I told him I wanted a camera specifically to take sports photos. A football season & halfway through a basketball season & I've yet to get a pic that's not a complete blur. Went back to Best Buy, salesman #2 couldn't believe this was the camera suggested for my specific needs, but told me of a few "tricks" that might help....nothing helped! Oh & don't get me started on the wi-fi.....complete waste of money.
