“A genuine Canon 28mm wide-angle lens with 5x optical zoom provides great flexibility in all situations, whether recording family gatherings, holidays or evening events. The versatile zoom range will ensure everyone fits in the frame, or can get closer to subjects for intimate portraits. The integrated lens-shift optical Image Stabilizer – an unrivalled advantage of Canon cameras – reduces the effects of camera shake, which can add blur to images shot in low light or at the telephoto end of the zoom. This allows users to capture sharp results in full resolution with up to 1/8th of the light than would otherwise be possible from a model without image stabilization.”
