Product Description

Canon's DiG!C III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. iSAPS technology uses shooting scene data to optimise camera settings even before a shot is taken. The bright 2.5 LCD screen is ideal for easy group viewing. Night Display mode aids visibility in low light while a selectable Grid Line display helps with composition. The optical viewfinder (OVF) lets you switch off the screen to preserve battery life. 16 shooting modes include Easy Mode which makes all the major decisions for ultra-simple photography, plus Special Scene modes like Sunset, Portrait and Kids and Pets, for great results in common shooting situations. My Colors photo effects such as Black and White can be applied during shooting. Movie modes include Long Play (LP) for VGA (20fps) clips that use half the normal memory card space. Printing is fast and easy with the PowerShot A580. Connect to any PictBridge compatible printer and push the Print/Share button for a full colour print within seconds. Connect to a Canon SELPHY CP printer and you can also print ID photos and movie stills.
