Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for the shooting condition
It's easy to capture clear, steady images with the PowerShot ELPH 130 IS, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. 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.
Normal Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills.
Panning Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere with desired camera movement.
Macro (Hybrid) Corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically occurs in macro (close-up) shooting.
Dynamic Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking.
Powered Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified.
Tripod When tripod use is detected, the Image Stabilizer is stopped because it is not needed.
I needed a shirt pocket camera & choice this one & glad I did. The optical image stabilization is unbelievable as I did a 3 second exposure hand held & there was NO blur! The 28 to 224 mm equivalent lens is nice range to have. The multitude of options is mind blowing, even has a fish-eye effect. My only complaint is the printed manual helps very little in the operation, You have to download the CD & then look on the computer to learn all it's features & that is NOT convenient, Canon should provide a cheat sheet as it takes a while to learn all it's functions...
