I checked Canon's website and also their user guide for all their PowerShot A models and it there isn't an IS (Image Stabilization) option for the A2300. I ordered mine from Amazon, and it mistakenly says IS, but it's incorrect. I even double-checked my camera, and the shaky hand icon (IS) is nowhere to be found. If you want the IS option, you need to go to the A2400. Here is Canon's website - the A2300 IS appears to be a fantasy - http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras.
