The 6.0 megapixel CCD produces images of impressive quality with resolution that lets you create big prints.
Advanced imaging technology improves every photo: DIGIC II Image Processor. Canon's DIGIC II Image Processor is designed to improve processing speed & image quality, so DIGIC II provides markedly faster startup, autofocus & playback, plus it assures that every image is more colorfully vibrant.
iSAPS Technology. iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC II Image Processor to improve focus speed & accuracy, as well as exposure & white balance.
Because great shots can happen anytime: Now there's no need to interrupt your movie when you see a great shot. With the S3 IS's MovieSnap feature, you can simply press the shutter to capture a full 6.0 megapixel still image at any time while recording a movie.
