HS System
All HS System cameras use high-sensitivity 
10.0 or 12.1 megapixel sensors with bigger 
pixels than conventional higher resolution 
models. Bigger pixels can capture more  
light leading to increased sensitivity for 
clearer, more refined images with less 
unwanted noise. 
Many models also feature back-illuminated 
CMOS sensors, which can capture more light 
than conventional CMOS sensors and 
perform better in low light. The optimised 
combination of these sensors and the DIGIC 
processor is the key to HS System’s amazing 
low light results.
Low Light Conditions
Compared to conventional cameras,  
HS System captures images with up to  
60% less noise, more visible detail and  
more accurate colours in all lighting 
situations. However, HS System truly excels 
in low light conditions and apart from 
providing superior image quality is also  
able to overcome common low light 
shooting problems such as capturing a well 
exposed subject against a dark, night-time 
background or capturing a moving subject 
without blur when shooting indoors.
DIGIC Processing
Canon’s DIGIC processor is the brain inside 
every Canon digital camera – processing 
information from the image sensor for 
optimum image quality and fast camera 
operation. It offers near-instant startup, 
superb detail and low noise (even at high 
ISO) plus enhanced movie functionality. 
DIGIC 5 is the latest evolution with all the 
advantages of DIGIC 4 plus improved noise 
reduction technology for up to 75% less 
noise* in the results, faster image 
processing, and special features such as 
Multi-area White Balance and high-speed 
shooting with full resolution.

Canon’s innovative HS System represents a cutting edge combination of a 
high-sensitivity sensor and a powerful DIGIC processor that work together to give 
premium image quality even in low light. This reduces the need to shoot with flash 
or tripod, allowing you to capture the real, natural atmosphere of the moment.
