With 6.3 effective megapixels, true photographic quality has finally been brought to the digital domain. A huge 22.7 x 15.1mm imaging area is the first advantage you'll notice. Behind it, Canon's CMOS technology is providing high-level signal processing and an array of noise reduction improvements that rely on very small amounts of power. So you can do more with less. Plus, two filters -- a hybrid infrared filter and an RGB primary color filter -- put vivid, accurate color at your fingertips.
