Even when the kids can't sit still and the light is less than ideal, the amazing Powershot A570 IS lets you capture life's special moments - perfectly. This camera's Optical Image Stabilizer Technology keeps images crisp even when shot from a distance, without considering the flash. The ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings reduce image blur when shot under low lights. Additionally, the A570 IS is packed with easy-to-use convenient features that will ease your photo shooting exercise.

Just imagine what you can do with its 7.1 megapixels! You'll be able to crop and enlarge your pictures to reveal the tiny details and exquisite depth that make every image come alive. Moreover, the powerful Canon 4x Optical Zoom Lens lets you zoom in tight and fast. So no matter where the action is, you'll be up close. The silvery metallic body is smoothly contoured so that the camera does not slip off your grip. You can use this camera even at most challenging places without the fear of losing its grip.

Simply press the Shutter Button halfway down, and the Powershot A570 IS automatically pinpoints the faces in the scene and chooses the ideal focus point. To keep every face look bright and natural - without scary red eyes - the camera controls exposure settings and flash.
