Canons New “Powershot S1 IS” Features 10x Stabilized Zoom and High-Quality Digital Video

LAS VEGAS (PMA, BOOTH # E11), Feb. 9, 2004 – The era of the two-in-one camera for capturing vacations, birthday parties, anniversaries, graduations, baby's first steps or any other family function or momentous milestone has arrived thanks to Canon and the all new PowerShot S1 IS digital camera. The S1 IS captures full 640 x 480 high-res movies at up to 30 frames per second as long as one hour depending on the capacity of the memory card or the charge in the battery. Its 10x optical zoom lens has been designed to ensure image sharpness, particularly at wide-angle settings - and thanks to Canon's optical Image Stabilization technology, you can shoot at shutter speeds two stops lower than would otherwise be possible.
