The PowerShot SX160 IS Digital Camera (Black) from Canon offers a powerful 16x optical zoom lens enabling you to shoot photos and videos that cover the full spectrum of focal lengths.

And the Intelligent Optical Image Stabilization system recognizes the different conditions that can cause a shaky, blurry image and corrects them so that your long zoom, fast action and low light shots are delivered sharp and stunning.

The PowerShot SX160 houses a 16MP CCD sensor and Canon's famous DIGIC 4 Image Processor. These are the brains and guts of the camera and the quality of image they produce is terrific. They also provide the fast autofocus of the SX160 and guarantee that your shots are seen on the LCD quickly and transfer to your HDTV via HDMI in an instant.

Speaking of HDMI, the SX160 also captures video in 720p HD and with the HDMI output, you can connect your camera to your HDTV and screen your videos in gorgeous HD moments after you shoot them. If you don't carry your HDTV around with you, use the camera's large 3.0" LCD screen to compose and display your images. People will be impressed.

Canon PowerShots are renowned for their image quality, but also for their ease of use and the SX160 takes ease of use to a whole new level. Smart AUTO will select the best settings for your shot and allow you to simply point and shoot. The Smart AUTO in the SX160 is not a generic coverall, it utilizes 32 predefined shooting situations to match with your shot and customize the camera's settings for sharp, colorful, perfectly exposed images, no matter the degree of difficulty. The Intelligent Image Stabilization also makes difficult shots easy by reducing the blur caused by camera shake in low light and long zoom situations and improved High Speed Autofocus gets your shot in focus in a hurry, leaving you time to compose the shot you want without juggling dials and menus. For simple, beautiful image capture in both photo and video, the PowerShot SX160 is the camera for you.
