The high resolution also means that even if you crop your image, your prints will still be breathtakingly beautiful.
Canon 4x Optical Zoom Lens
The 4x Optical Zoom lens is made to Canon's demanding specifications, and is capable of shooting close-ups, group shots or scenery. The addition of the 4x digital zoom yields a total zoom of 16x and provides the ability to really single out details from a distance.
Image Stabilizer Technology for Steady Shooting
The Canon PowerShot A570 IS features Canon's exclusive Image Stabilizer Technology. Camera shake can cause blurring when shooting in low light and at long focal lengths, but the advanced Image Stabilizer uses digital technology to detect camera shake and signal precise lens shifts that effectively cancel it. This means the A570 IS will allow you to take excellent-quality images in many more situations - outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, anytime when lighting conditions are not ideal.
DIGIC III Processor with Face Detection AF/AE
Delivering fast, responsive camera performance and superb image rendering, the DIGIC III processor also drives Canon's landmark Face Detection technology. Face Detection AF/AE ensures accurate and bright people shots by automatically detecting faces in a scene and optimizing focus and exposure accordingly, and because the technology is hardware-based, it operates at the same rapid speed as Canon's standard AiAF. Furthermore, the processor incorporates iSAPS scene-recognition technology using an internal database of thousands of different photos to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.
High ISO to Reduce Image Blur and Expand Low-light Shooting
The PowerShot A570 IS features ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake, subject movement, and allows you to shoot without a flash even in low-light situations, giving you greater flexibility for shooting.

Furthermore, the Compact Movie Mode (160x120) records at 15 fps for up to 3 minutes, and is ideal for internet and e-mail applications.
