The Canon PowerShot SX170 IS Digital Camera is a compact, point-and-shoot featuring a 16 megapixel 1/2.3″ CCD sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor to produce high-resolution, well-detailed stills and HD 720p video. The processor also works to provide reduced noise levels and overall image clarity as well as power throughout the camera to enable a High Speed AF system and intelligent auto shooting modes. The built-in Canon 16x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-448mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto lengths for shooting in nearly any environment. Intelligent IS image stabilization is also available and features six unique stabilization modes suited to different types of shooting. For image composition, playback, and menu navigation, a 3.0-inch 230k-dot LCD is available and features a wide viewing angle to support use in bright conditions. The SX170 IS also features a refined ergonomic design to increase comfort during use.
