High-resolution imaging and a long-reaching zoom within a slim form factor, the blue Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 IS Digital Camera is a versatile and convenient point-and-shoot featuring a 20MP 1/2.3" CCD image sensor and DIGIC 4+ image processor, which enables a top sensitivity of ISO 1600 and a 2.2 fps shooting rate. A 12x optical zoom lens provides a 25-300mm equivalent focal length range, which covers wide to telephoto perspectives for working in a variety of conditions. Benefitting this extensive zoom range is Intelligent IS image stabilization, which features eight distinct stabilization methods to ensure sharp and clear imagery. HD 720/25p video recording is available along with Scene Modes for a creative take on your imagery. Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on detected scene types and a Help Button can be used to better understand all of the controls and settings of your camera. Besides using the 2.7" 230k-dot LCD monitor for viewing your compositions or playing back imagery, the ELPH 170 IS is also compatible with the optional Connect Station CS100 for wireless transferring and sharing of your photos and movies.
20MP 1/2.3" CCD image sensor pairs with the DIGIC 4+ image processor to realize notable image clarity, sensitivity to ISO 1600, and a 2.2 fps shooting rate. A 12x optical zoom lens provides a 25-300mm equivalent focal length, which covers wide-angle to telephoto perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of situations. Intelligent IS image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake and compensates for eight distinct types of camera movement:
Normal IS corrects for a wide range of common camera movements.
Panning IS detects deliberate panning movements and does not compensate for lateral movements to permit desired camera movements.
Macro (Hybrid) IS corrects for shift-type camera shake that commonly occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
Tripod is a dedicated setting that automatically deactivates IS when the use of a tripod is detected since camera-based stabilization is not needed.
Dynamic IS is well-suited to recording at wide-angle focal lengths and reduces unwanted shaking that typically occurs when walking while recording.
Powered IS compensates for hand movements that become more visually discernable when working at the telephoto end of the zoom range.
Macro (Hybrid) IS minimizes the appearance of shake when walking as well as compensates for shift-type shake that occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
Active Tripod IS minimizes the slight amount of shake that can happen when recording video while using a tripod.
In addition to stills, HD 720p video at 25 fps can also be recorded and is accessible via a dedicated movie button.
A 2.7" 230k-dot LCD monitor is available for composing imagery, navigating the menu, or reviewing photos and videos.
Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on recognized shooting situations.
Scene Modes, such as Fisheye Effect, Toy Camera Effect, and Monochrome, help to creatively adjust the look of your photographs in-camera.
ECO Mode intelligently reduces your power consumption, aiding in producing longer battery life for more shooting time.
For quickly familiarizing oneself with the camera, a Help Button provides a convenient explanation of the various camera settings and controls.
For wirelessly transferring imagery, the ELPH 170 IS is compatible with the optional Connect Station CS100 for backing-up photos and videos, storing them, and sharing with others.
