Coupled to a 4.0-megapixel CCD is Canon's high-performance DIGIC processor to ensure enhanced color reproduction, fast continuous shooting and a long battery life. Every image is captured through a crisp 3x optical zoom lens combined with a digital zoom for 11x combined optical and digital zoom. This results in high-resolution prints of up to A3. An Intelligent Orientation Sensor recognizes how you're holding the camera when you take a shot, as well as more accurate metering this also rotates the image on the LCD screen so the picture is always the right way round.
Flexizone AF/AE lets you move your auto focus point around when composing. Focus bracketing, especially useful in close-ups, takes three shots of a subject, changing focus between the three; ideal for macro shots. With a metallic body, the PowerShot S45 has a beautifully balanced, compact, ergonomic design. The camera's 12 shooting modes are organized into three Zones (Creative Image Zone, Programmed Image Control (PIC) Zone and Auto Image Zone). They allow more photographic control so that you can achieve just the result you're looking for. A dedicated range of accessories helps you make the most of every photographic opportunity. For instant prints you can simply connect to a Direct Print-compatible printer, select your image and print - no PC required. PowerShot S45 is compatible with the complete range of Canon card photo printers and Bubble Jet Direct printers.
