Canon 16x Optical Zoom Lens
The built-in Canon 16x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-448mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of shooting environments. Benefitting this extensive zoom range is the incorporation of an Optical Image Stabilizer system, which helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake. Also available is an Intelligent IS image stabilization system that automatically selects one of six different stabilization modes to more closely match the shooting conditions. The Normal setting corrects for a wide range of movements and is ideal for still photography; the Panning setting detects when panning shots are being made and does not compensate for lateral shake; the Macro (Hybrid) setting specifically corrects for shift-type shake that is common when working with close-up subject matter; the Dynamic mode is highly effective for video work and wide-angle settings and helps to minimize common shake that occurs while walking or moving with the camera; the Powered setting is suited for shooting at the telephoto end of the zoom range when hand shake is most prevalent; and Tripod mode simply turns off the IS since it is no longer needed.
