Canon Powershot A470

Fully-automatic 7.1-megapixel digital camera with 3.4x optical zoom The PowerShot A470 has 7.1 megapixels of imaging power that make it easy for you to create stunning pictures of radiance and lush color. Even the tiniest details -- a drop of dew on a flower petal or a child’s fleeting smile -- are captured with all the resolution you need to email, print, crop, and even enlarge. For close-ups that will impress you with their clarity and true-to-life brilliance, you’ve got a genuine Canon 3.4x optical zoom lens that brings distant images into focus with one press of a button.

Large, high-resolution 2.5-inch LCD makes on-camera viewing easy The camera’s 2.5-inch LCD screen gives you the big picture, whether you’re shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture and bright, it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.

Enhanced Canon Face Detection Technology Canon's powerful Face Detection Technology delivers even better results with the new A470. The Face Detection Technology continues to recognize faces in a scene, and concentrate exposure (daylight or flash) and focus upon them. But the A470 adds more: Face Detection WB means the camera concentrates upon faces when calculating white balance for the best possible skin tones. Face Select and Track lets the A470 user highlight one face among several in a scene, and the camera concentrates on that person, even as they move around the scene. Face Detection Technology is a powerful contributing factor in Canon's new Motion Detection Technology.
