5x zoom with enhanced optical Image Stabilizer Thanks to Canon’s advanced UA (Ultra-High Refractive Index Aspherical) lens technology, the Digital IXUS 970 IS has an uncompromising 5x zoom lens but retains its compact form. The redesigned optical Image Stabilizer system gives a 4-stop advantage, making shots in very low light achievable.
Motion Detection Technology Canon’s Motion Detection Technology uses a wide array of inputs and intelligent algorithms to detect and compensate for camera shake and subject movement. Part of High ISO Auto, the system maximises image quality by only using the minimum necessary ISO boost to combat blur.
Face Detection Technology Face Detection Technology ensures superb people shots by automatically setting optimum focus, exposure, flash and white balance. Face Select and Track lets you choose and track your primary subject, so you never lose a special face in the crowd.
Red-Eye Correction Red-Eye Correction quickly and easily removes red-eye in camera. It can be set to automatically remove red-eye as you shoot or during playback mode, making natural eyes easy to achieve.
DIGIC III and iSAPS Canon's DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. iSAPS technology uses shooting scene data to optimise camera settings even before a shot is taken.
2.5" PureColor LCD II A high resolution 2.5" PureColor LCD II screen has an extremely wide-angle viewing, making it easy to share your images with a group. Exceptional colour contrast means the screen is visible under bright sunlight. An optical viewfinder (OVF) extends your shooting possibilities.
Shooting Modes and My Colors 18 shooting modes include Sunset, Kids & Pets, and ISO 3200 Special Scene modes which optimise camera settings for the easy capture of popular subjects. My Colors in-camera photo effects can be applied during or after shooting.
