Featuring a 10x optical zoom, the 3-megapixel Canon PowerShot S1 IS is the only Canon camera to offer extended zoom capability. The S1 is also the only PowerShot model to have an optical image stabilizer (hence the "IS" in the name), which substantially reduces camera shake in both still images and movies. Unveiled at the 2004 Photo Marketing Association show in Las Vegas, the Canon S1 is one of seven new PowerShot cameras announced by Canon in early February, 2004.
