Canon PowerShot S10 Digital Camera

2.1 megapixel Capacity
Digital photography, like analog photography, is about clarity. The S10's 1/2-inch CCD has over 2.1 million pixels, providing rich color, high-resolution and large-image-size capacity. With the ability to provide full-color images at up to 1,600 x 1,200 you can finally get the full-size photographs you want from a digital camera with the Canon legacy of quality and photographic excellence.ed contemporaries. Just slip it into a tiny pocket and head out for the day.

USB Connection
Part of being digital is about communication. Specifically, it's about the ability of your PowerShot camera to communicate with your computer. The PowerShot S10 brings your communications into the digital universe with its cross-platform USB connection. By connecting your S10 to your computer (PC or Macintosh) via the included USB cable you can download your photographs at 10 times the rate of the older serial connections. With today's high-capacity storage devices, a quicker download is essential, and with the USB connection, you can now communicate at digital speed.

Digital photography provides the wonderful ability to capture high-resolution large-size photographs, with stunning color and rich detail. The only problem: where to put these photographs, which can have file sizes well over a megabyte each. Floppies can't stand up to the task of holding even a few of these high-quality pictures.

Enter PowerShot and the CompactFlash card
Each PowerShot camera comes with a CompactFlash card, like a little digital hard drive, which can hold up to 8MB worth of images. That's more storage space then a handful of floppies. And you can get CompactFlash cards in sizes from 2MB cards all the way up to the IBM microdrive, at 340MB. It's like loading 45 rolls of 35mm film all at once. With PowerShot and the CompactFlash card you never need to worry about film or space again. You know you can rely on Canon to deliver the rich high-quality photograph you want, and you always have room to store it. PowerShot makes room for your photographs in the digital present while making space for you in the digital future.

Canon Lenses
Today's digital cameras are technological marvels, with abilities unthought of even a few years ago. However, ultimately digital cameras are just that, cameras, and like all cameras they are only as good as their lenses. Canon has been in the business of making great lenses since the 1940s. The camera's electronic components, from the CCD to the CompactFlash card, all rely on the camera lens to deliver a clear, sharp, high-quality image. With the all-glass aspherical Canon lenses in every PowerShot camera, you get the image quality you need. Look at the world through your mind's eye, but photograph it through a Canon lens.
