10x zoom, IXUS style

10x optical zoom with Image Stabilizer
An ultra compact 10x zoom lens incorporates an advanced optical Image Stabilizer to allow shooting at longer focal lengths and in low light without the need for a tripod.

Compact, sleek metal body
With its fashionable IXUS metal design and fully retractable super zoom lens you will never have to compromise on pocketability or style. 

HS System with high-sensitivity 10.0 Megapixel CMOS sensor
The HS System provides stunning image quality in all light conditions. A 10.0 Megapixel high-sensitivity CMOS sensor allows fast continuous shooting and enables special high speed functions such as Handheld Night Scene and Super Slow Motion Movie.

Full HD movies with Dynamic IS
Capture your best moments in Full HD (1080p) with stereo sound, and use the camera’s HDMI port to connect to your HDTV and share the fun with friends. Follow your subjects using the 10x optical zoom - thanks to the Dynamic Image Stabilizer your movies will be steadier and sharper even if recording while walking. 

Large 7.6 cm (3.0”) PureColor II G LCD
This model features a PureColor II G LCD screen which incorporates a protective tempered glass cover offering increased strength, better contrast and wide viewing angles.

Super Slow Motion Movie and high-speed shooting
Super Slow Motion Movie captures video at 240 frames per second slowing down fast-paced action like sports or wildlife, while High-speed Burst won’t miss a moment with up to 8.8 shots per second (2.5MP) non-stop photo shooting to card capacity 

Smart Auto
Take care of the framing and let the camera do everything else. Using a host of Canon technologies, Smart Auto can detect different subjects in various shooting conditions and automatically selects the best settings from 28 variables. 

Various shooting modes including Best Image Selection
Best Image Selection shoots a high speed burst of 5 shots and automatically selects the best one to store. Low-light scenes can be recorded without the need for a tripod thanks to the Handheld Night Scene mode.

Smart Shutter with Wink Self-timer
Smart Shutter incorporates 3 convenient and relaxed ways to remotely trigger the shutter including Wink Self-Timer which captures a shot 2 seconds after a wink is detected.

Hints & Tips
Most options within the shooting and playback menu are explained by a short instruction to help you understand the camera and increase your creativity.
