GENUINE CANON OPTICS: Sophisticated Canon optical technology delivers a high performance lens enabling incredible images, even in low light.
HIGH-SENSITIVITY CMOS SENSOR: It delivers state-of-the-art imaging performance and is optimized for use in compact cameras.
DIGIC 6 IMAGE PROCESSOR: The very latest Canon proprietary processor, the DIGIC 6 Image Processor makes several important advancements to image quality in both stills and video.
With the DIGIC 6 Image Processor working in tandem with genuine Canon optics and a High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, images are great no matter the scene at hand. The processor instantly analyzes the situation, taking into account dozens of parameters. Then, it chooses among the camera’s array of sophisticated technologies to command those best suited to the job.
Low light? Go ahead and shoot flash-free. The Canon HS SYSTEM is fueled by the processing power of the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, partnered with an advanced High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor with larger pixels that capture more light. Expect luminous, noise-free, detailed images that capture the nuance and romance of low light, without the unwanted effects of a flash.
The DIGIC 6 Image Processor not only processes more data faster than ever before, it processes that data more intelligently, shutting down the noise that can mar an image. With noise reduction processing speed significantly increased over the DIGIC 5 Image Processor, images are exquisitely clear and precisely detailed.
Full HD Video has never looked the way it does with the DIGIC 6 Image Processor. That’s because faster, smarter processing is vastly better at distinguishing between detail and noise. Every fine detail is captured while the noise goes away, even in low light. In fact, with the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, the noise at ISO 1600 is equivalent to the noise at ISO 400 on previous models.*
* According to Canon’s evaluation methods. Targeted resolution/frame rate – PowerShot G16: Full HD/60p/30p, HD/30p and VGA/30p. PowerShot S120/SX280 HS: Full HD/30p, HD/30p and VGA/30p.
The DIGIC 6 Image Processor counters difficult situations like a backlit subject or a too-bright lighting source by powering a highly advanced Automatic White Balance system. Other cameras typically make one overall adjustment to the image, but Canon’s system analyzes several different areas of the image, making adjustments where needed to produce a beautifully natural scene with true color.
