You'll want to carry this compact, versatile camera everywhere, because it gives every shooting opportunity the potential to become a beautiful image. The spectacular 16x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle Lens and Optical Image Stabilizer captures clear, vivid images whether your subject is up close or far away. And with the 16.0 Megapixel sensor and Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor, every detail is precisely rendered for truly impressive image quality. The PowerShot SX160 IS captures breathtakingly realistic 720p HD video in stereo sound with the press of a button. You can zoom while shooting your videos and view them easily later on your HDTV through the HDMI connector. Smart AUTO makes shooting stills and video easy because the camera automatically selects the right settings for 32 predefined shooting situations. Shoot freely and naturally with new High Speed AF that dramatically increases focus speed so you'll capture every shot you want. And because the PowerShot SX160 IS is powered by AA batteries, you'll always be ready to shoot.


Powerful 16x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle Lens


  • The PowerShot SX160 IS features a powerful Genuine Canon 16x Optical Zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. With precision engineering and decades of leadership in optical technologies, Canon has created a bright, wide-angle lens that provides an extraordinary 16x zoom range. The lens starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 448mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), giving you tremendous coverage and reach. The telephoto end lets you capture subjects from a considerable distance, while the 28mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings.




Optical Image Stabilizer


  • Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical in more shooting situations, providing excellent image quality in many difficult situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod.




16.0 Megapixel Image Sensor


  • The PowerShot SX160 IS's 16.0 Megapixel CCD sensor delivers impressive photos with fine detail and brilliant color. The high resolution ensures superb image quality even when cropping or making very large prints.




Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor


  • The DIGIC 4 Image Processor has ushered in a new level of picture quality and accelerated processing, making possible features such as high-speed continuous shooting, HD video and Face Detection Self-timer. New, more powerful noise reduction algorithms also provide improved low-light capture.




Canon HD Video Advantage


  • The PowerShot SX160 IS lets you record highly detailed 720p HD video at 25 frames per second with clear stereo sound. Watching your videos and sharing them with family and friends is especially easy with the camera's HDMI output: you can connect the camera directly to your HDTV with an optional HDMI cable, and see your videos on the big screen right away.




Dedicated Movie Button, Wind Filter and Optical Zoom While Shooting


  • The PowerShot SX160 IS has a dedicated movie button that lets you start and stop recording instantly. The camera also incorporates an electronic wind filter, which suppresses wind noise that can muffle or distort the sound. The PowerShot SX160 IS lets you use the full range of optical zoom when you're shooting a video without sacrificing HD video resolution.




Large 3.0-inch LCD


  • Easy to see from a wide angle, the camera's 3.0-inch LCD with a great resolution of approximately 230,000 dots gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images.




Smart AUTO


  • Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture, whether you're shooting stills or video. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles.




High Speed AF


  • The PowerShot SX160 IS is equipped with Canon's latest advancements in Autofocus (AF) technology. The extremely responsive High Speed AF lets you capture great shots as they happen, with reduced lag time. In addition to improved AF algorithms, the camera can process multiple sequences simultaneously, and takes advantage of reworked controls between AF and the start of shooting.




AA Battery Powered


  • With the PowerShot SX160 IS, you'll never need special power adapters or chargers because it's powered by two AA batteries that are widely available around the world.
