Catch Them in Motion
Canon Optical Image Stabilizer Technology and ISO 1600 for steady shooting

Life doesn't give you second chances to capture special times. That's why the elegant PowerShot S5 IS is equipped with Canon's acclaimed Optical Image Stabilizer Technology that automatically detects and corrects camera shake - one of the leading causes of fuzzy or blurred shots. So now even when you're zooming in tight, you can get the steady, crisp, brilliant images you'll be proud to shoot and share. And Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer Technology is so convenient to use. It functions perfectly with or without a flash.

The PowerShot S5 IS features new ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater flexibility for shooting.
