Take shots with style.

Never has it been so quick and easy to get that cool shot you’ll want to share instantly. With Creative Shot Mode, press the shutter once and you’ll get six photos with different composition, colour tone and exposure. Your homemade Pad Thai? It’ll look cookbook ready. The cute shot of your little guy covered in birthday cake? Ready to show off to friends and family. With Canon’s HS SYSTEM and 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, you’ll get great shots even in less than ideal lighting situations. There’s no need to wait to share your photos with the Mobile Device Connect button. It quickly connects the camera to your smartphone, even when the camera’s power is turned off.
