DIGIC 4 Image Processor
Canon's proprietary DIGIC Image Processors have long set its cameras
apart from the competition, and the new DIGIC 4 sets the bar even
higher. Faster, more accurate noise reduction delivers better image
quality, even at high ISO speeds.
DIGIC 4 Image Processor
is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for
digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of
different photos, iSAPS works with the advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor
to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white

A new Face Self-Timer
automatically detects an increase in the number of faces and makes the
appropriate adjustments. For instance, to include photographer's face
in a group shot, there's no need to rush in. Just put the camera on a
stand or tripod, and specify Face Self-Timer, and the camera will wait
for the photographer's face to get on-camera before it takes the shot.
Motion Detection now tracks moving subjects in a much larger range, and
the new Servo AF retains focus on a moving subject after the shutter
button is pressed halfway - allowing you to wait for the perfect shot
without refocusing. Also, Face Detection and Motion Detection are
Intelligent Contrast Correction
DIGIC 4 also makes possible the new i-Contrast
(Intelligent Contrast Correction) system, which controls the
compensation level in pixel units to brighten dark areas while leaving
bright areas unchanged for better images where the main subject is
dark, and more natural transition. The PowerShot G10 can even use
i-Contrast in playback mode to adjust images that were shot without the
Red-eye Correction provides three options for removing red-eye from subjects in flash pictures.
1) The Red-eye Correction during shooting actually identifies and
corrects red-eye in human subjects as pictures are taken.
2) The G10 can be set to automatically detect and correct red-eye during image playback.
3) You can manually locate any red eyes in a scene during image
playback on the LCD screen, and command the camera to remove them.
doesn't give you second chances to capture special times. That's why
the G10 features ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the
effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations,
giving you greater shooting flexibility. ISO can be expanded to 3200
when you select ISO 3200 Special Scene mode.
