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 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.

Great little camera with features
Bought this small,compact camera for my wife, replacement for a Canon G3 4mp( full body). She is able to put it in her purse without noticing the weight. Excellent picture quality, excellent video. Great to be able to zoom in/out while shooting video. As with any camera when shooting pics or video, purchase a bigger sd card and spare batteries now, not later. This camera is packed with features, that my wife would not normally use. Just leave it in AUTO mode and shoot away. Excellent camera for the price.
