Other Features
PowerShot S30 users can even select an ISO 800 equivalent speed, a sophisticated feature rarely seen in this product category. As a rule, noise increases as the ISO rating increases. However, the PowerShot S30 is able to achieve practical image quality in spite of this high speed, thus allowing a wider range of photographic opportunities in low light conditions.
