Intelligent IS utilises Canon’s highly-effective 4-stop optical Image Stabilizer to counter camera shake in still photos and Full HD video clips. The Canon PowerShot S100 digital camera provides seven modes of stabilisation, Intelligent IS automatically identifies the scene and adapts the optical Image Stabilizer settings for optimal compensation. Panning IS is ideal for following racetrack action, ensuring the IS system only corrects the axis vertical to the direction of movement, while Macro IS features Hybrid IS technology for shooting clear close-ups. Powered IS uses Canon camcorder technology to film distant subjects when using the zoom, while Tripod mode switches off IS when the Canon PowerShot S100 camera is on a stable surface or attached to a tripod.
