San Diego, California (NAPSI) - Any time can be the right time to use digital cameras and camcorders to capture images that you can treasure—whether they’re pictures taken during an exotic vacation, a restful staycation or a weekend barbecue.

The technology behind these digital devices is constantly evolving, making it possible to do things you might not have even considered just months ago. Here are three key features that can improve the quality of your photos:

• Get the shot you want even in low light: Some of the most remarkable moments occur in low-light situations. Imagine a sunset dinner on a cruise, for instance, or a national landmark at dawn.

To ensure the highest-quality video and photos look for a camera with a high-sensitivity image sensor that delivers superb image quality, especially in those low-light moments.

For example, Canon’s HS SYSTEM−enabled PowerShot cameras are designed to shoot clear images without sacrificing quality. When shooting video in low light, try the line of camcorders that use the HD CMOS Pro sensor.

• Capture, view and print with HD video: With high-definition (HD) increasingly becoming the standard in home video, seek out a camera or camcorder with an HD video feature.

Canon PowerShot cameras and VIXIA camcorders make it possible to get smooth, high-quality HD video clips. With a dedicated movie button, HDMI connectivity and Smart Auto, these cameras and camcorders make it easy to shoot great videos that can be relived over and over again.

To preserve your favorite shots, consider printing high-quality photos from video snapshots using the Full HD Movie Print feature on Canon’s latest PIXMA Inkjet Printers. This feature enables you to print individual movie frames, turning them into snapshots of your fond memories.

• Add stability to your images: One way to help eliminate blurry images is by using cameras and camcorders that employ technology that can compensate for both angular and shift camera shake that may occur during shooting.

Canon cameras and camcorders, for instance, feature Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) to counter the effects of camera shake or slight movements.

When taking video of a special occasion, keeping the camera steady can be a difficult task for anyone. Canon’s Dynamic SuperRange Optical IS addresses this issue by providing continuous adjustment throughout to correct a broad range of movement.
