And with the 16.0-megapixel sensor and Canon DIGIC 4 image processor, every detail is precisely rendered for truly impressive image quality. The PowerShot SX160 IS captures breathtakingly realistic 720p HD video in stereo sound with the press of a button. You can zoom while shooting your videos and view them easily later on your HDTV through the HDMI connector. Smart AUTO makes shooting stills and video easy because the camera automatically selects the right settings for 32 predefined shooting situations. Shoot freely and naturally with high speed AF that dramatically increases focus speed so you'll capture every shot you want.

Powerful 16x optical zoom with 28 mm wide-angle lens
The PowerShot SX160 IS features a powerful Genuine Canon 16x optical zoom lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. With precision engineering and decades of leadership in optical technologies, Canon has created a bright, wide-angle lens that provides an extraordinary 16x zoom range. The lens starts at 28 mm wide-angle and extends to 448 mm telephoto (35 mm equivalent), giving you tremendous coverage and reach. The telephoto end lets you capture subjects from a considerable distance, while the 28 mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings. Moreover, this superb lens incorporates innovative designs that enable it to fit the compact profile of the PowerShot SX160 IS.

Optical image stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon's optical image stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical in more shooting situations, providing excellent image quality in many difficult situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For still photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.

16.0-megapixel image sensor
The PowerShot SX160 IS's 16.0-megapixel CCD sensor delivers impressive photos with fine detail and brilliant color. The high resolution ensures superb image quality even when cropping or making very large prints.

Canon HD video
The PowerShot SX160 IS lets you record highly detailed 720p HD video at 25 frames per second with clear stereo sound. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot high definition video whenever you want, right from your compact digital camera. Watching your videos and sharing them with family and friends is especially easy with the camera's HDMI output: you can connect the camera directly to your HDTV with an optional HDMI cable, and see your videos on the big screen right away.

Dedicated movie button, wind filter and optical zoom while shooting
It's never been easier to shoot videos with a PowerShot digital camera. The PowerShot SX160 IS has a dedicated movie button that lets you start and stop recording instantly. The camera is always ready to shoot stills or video whenever you want. The camera also incorporates an electronic wind filter, which suppresses wind noise that can muffle or distort the sound. The PowerShot SX160 IS lets you use the full range of optical zoom when you're shooting a video without sacrificing HD video resolution.

iFrame movie support
With the PowerShot SX160 IS, you can also shoot video in the Apple iFrame format, which is a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos. It keeps file sizes small, making it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, making it unnecessary to perform time-consuming and often quality-degrading conversions.

Large 3.0-inch LCD
Easy to see from a wide angle, the camera's 3.0-inch LCD with a great resolution of approximately 230,000 dots gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient; it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.

Smart AUTO
The PowerShot SX160 IS features Smart AUTO: sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture, whether you're shooting stills or video. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away.

Intelligent IS
The Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS, analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system automatically selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod IS modes. When shooting video, the system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod IS modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most effective IS settings to assure the steadiest possible image.

High speed AF
The PowerShot SX160 IS is equipped with Canon's latest advancements in Autofocus (AF) technology. Working on multiple fronts, Canon has developed AF that is significantly faster than on previous models, for a shooting experience that's spontaneous and natural. The extremely responsive High Speed AF lets you capture great shots as they happen, with reduced lag time.
