The Canon PowerShot SX110 IS succeeds the SX100 IS launched in October 2007, which combined a high-zoom-ratio lens and exceptional operating ease. The new SX model inherits the Optical Image Stabilizer-equipped 10x optical zoom lens of its predecessor while newly incorporating a high-resolution 9.0-megapixel CCD sensor. The model also features a large 3.0-inch LCD monitor—enlarged from the 2.5-inch monitor of the SX100 IS—that offers a wide viewing angle. Despite the larger monitor, the new SX110 IS realizes a body that is slimmer and lighter than its predecessor, enabling users to enjoy the same high-magnification performance with greater convenience.

*1 This digital camera supports Exif 2.2 (also called “Exif Print”). Exif Print is a standard for enhancing the communication between digital cameras and printers. By connecting to an Exif Print-compliant printer, the camera’s image data at the time of shooting is used and optimized, yielding extremely high quality prints.
