This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture and bright, it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.

With Canon's Face Detection WB (right), skin tones are not affected by overall lighting
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.

DIGIC III image processor With DIGIC III, your images boast superior quality, the camera operates at top efficiency and battery life is enhanced. What’s more, DIGIC III enables Canon’s Face Detection Technology and Red-eye Correction to give you better, more true-to-life people shots. Simply press the Shutter Button halfway down, and the camera automatically pinpoints the faces in the scene and chooses the ideal focus point. The camera controls exposure settings and flash to keep every face looking bright and natural. Red-eye Correction can be handled in-camera, in two ways. The entirely new Red-eye Correction during shooting uses the Face Detection Technology to recognize and remove red-eye from flash images as they're taken, before the file is written to the memory card. It's also possible to correct red-eye during image playback, using simple settings in the A470's menu.

iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the fast DIGIC III Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

Red-eye Correction Red-eye correction provides three options for removing red-eye from subjects in flash pictures.
  • The new Red-eye Correction during shooting actually identifies and corrects red-eye in human subjects as pictures are taken.
  • The A470 can be set to automatically detect and correct red-eye during image playback.
  • The user can manually locate any red eyes in a scene during image playback on the LCD screen, and command the camera to remove them.

Capture clear pictures, even when your subject is moving
Motion Detection Technology automatically reduces blur Life doesn’t stand still for picture-taking. That’s why Canon included its advanced Motion Detection Technology in the PowerShot A470. This sophisticated feature works in the background to instantly evaluate how fast your subject is moving. Then it automatically selects and sets the optimal exposure and ISO settings to keep everything looking sharp and clear. So whether you’re shooting a bride walking down the aisle, a ballet recital or even a child’s soccer game, you can relax and shoot with confidence knowing you’ve got the picture you intended.

Canon PowerShot A470 highlights
High ISO The PowerShot A470 features ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater shooting flexibility.

14 Shooting Modes including 10 Special Scene Modes With 14 shooting modes to choose from, you’re ready for whatever shot comes your way.

Vertical shooting is fast and easy The PowerShot A470 lets you shoot great Vertical Images -- everything from tall buildings to fun, family photos -- more conveniently. Turn the camera, then just press the Print/Share Button. Instantly, the camera displays your scene in the proper vertical orientation. You don’t have to worry about re-arranging your hand position. You’re free to concentrate on setting your scene, composing your shot or coaxing subjects to smile.

Sleek, modern design in 4 bold colors The PowerShot A470 tells the world who you are. Its refined, distinctive design is a perfect reflection of your good taste and individual style. But it's just the beginning of what makes this camera so uniquely you. The PowerShot A470 is available in a choice of four exciting and dramatic colors. Choose the one that perfectly reveals your personality, your singular style or your point of view. There's Gray, Blue, Red or Orange. No matter which color you choose, the PowerShot A470 will keep the attention focused on you.
