Canon India Pvt Ltd has announced the launch of PowerShot S2 IS-the
successor of PowerShot S1 IS—with improved features such as five megapixel CCD,
12x optical zoom and is now powered by the advanced DIGIC II imaging processor.
According to the company, the camera incorporates Optical Image Stabilizer
(IS), Ultrasonic Motor (USM) and a UD lens element. Optical IS works to
counteract camera shake for ultra sharp photos and movies. USM provides su-per
responsive, smooth and near silent zoom, while the UD element reduces chromatic
aberrations for razor sharp images with superb color accuracy.
The PowerShot S2 IS features a 1.8-inch vari-angle LCD maximizes shooting and
playback pleasure, with night display for improved visibility in low light.
The PowerShot S2 IS is available at Rs 32, 495 and its availability in India
is through Canon's distribution channel. The target audience for this digital
camera is primarily consumers in search of a reliable "two-in-one"
digital camera to capture high quality stills and videos.
