The Canon Powershot SX160 IS 16MP Point and Shoot Camera is the perfect combination of camera and that of an extraordinary video maker. Videos are recorded in spectacularly detailed 720p HD with clear stereo sound. Better yet, you can now zoom in and out as your creativity demands, without losing a bit of the 720p HD resolution. Given the SX160 IS's powerful 16x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom, this capability is especially meaningful. The camera automatically selects the optimum IS for all situations allowing users to capture crystal-clear, picture-perfect moments whether if they are capturing photographs or video. LIVE View Control allows users to make adjustments such as exposure compensation, white balance, contrast, and sharpness and be able to see the differences in real time on the LCD display prior to shooting the photograph.
