Canon's Optical Image
Stabilizer technology, this Canon 55-250mm telephoto zoom lens captures
long distance, low-light shots far better than many comparable lenses,
helping you photograph the far-off action of athletes or zoom in for an
intimate portrait with a blurred background. The high-zoom-ratio lens
is equivalent to a focal length of 88-400mm in the 35mm format (when
used on Canon EOS cameras compatible with EF-S lenses). More
significantly, the image stabilizer effect creates an equivalent
shutter speed of roughly four stops faster than the same size lens
without an image stabilizer. In other words, if the slowest shutter
speed you can hold a 250mm lens steadily is normally 1/250th of a
second, this Canon lens will let you hand-hold shutter speeds as slow
as 1/15th of a second. The lens also boasts a UD-glass lens element to
correct chromatic aberration to create excellent image quality
throughout the zoom range. Delivering an excellent performance at an
affordable price for all photographers.
