The classically styled PowerShot G7 boasts an advanced feature set that includes 10.0 Megapixel resolution, a 6x optically image stabilized zoom lens and Canon's new DIGIC III image processor. DIGIC III delivers rapid performance with improved image quality and incorporates two new Canon technologies - Face Detection AF/AE and advanced Noise Reduction, which extend the camera's low-noise performance to ISO 1600. The high-resolution 2.5 inch LCD screen has a wide viewing angle and anti-glare coating for easier image framing and playback. Furthering the potential for creative photography the PowerShot G7 is equipped with hot shoe support for Canon Speedlite flash units and is compatible with a range of optional converter lenses. The PowerShot G7 uses a lens shift-type Image Stabilizer (IS) system to detect and correct slight camera shakes that can cause image blur. The PowerShot G7's optical IS allows photographers to shoot at shutter speeds up to 3 stops slower with no perceptible increase in image blur. These features make the G7 the perfect tool for sports or similar photography, in which the subject may move around extensively.
