IXUS and PowerShot – zoom, style, quality, ease-of-use
The two new additions to the IXUS range include the IXUS 1100 HS and the IXUS 230 HS, two impressively compact cameras packing a powerful range of technologies and features that deliver outstanding still images and Full HD video with stereo sound. Both IXUS models excel in low light thanks to Canon’s unique HS system, which provides exceptional image quality in all conditions.

The slimmest camera of its kind[1], the IXUS 1100 HS packs a powerful 12x optical zoom into a sleek, stainless steel body with the versatile 28mm wide-angle lens. Photos are displayed and settings controlled with ease on the huge 8.0cm (3.2’’) PureColor II Touch LCD screen.

The IXUS 230 HS blends a sleek and stylish design, available in a choice of six vibrant colours, with a powerful 28mm 8x optical zoom lens, and at just 22.1mm, it is also the slimmest camera of its kind in the world[2]. For instant Full HD movie recording, the IXUS 230 HS also features a dedicated Movie Record Button to allow users to switch immediately from shooting high quality stills to video.

The new PowerShot SX150 IS is an affordable, superzoom camera packed with fun and creative features. Designed to make it super-easy and enjoyable to capture fun shots and HD movies, the PowerShot SX150 IS features a 14.1 Megapixel resolution sensor, while an impressive 12x optical zoom offers a 336mm telephoto reach – providing the flexibility to capture high quality images, near and far. A compact design also makes it the perfect companion for trips and family holidays.

All three cameras feature Canon’s new Intelligent IS system – a powerful technology that assesses the scene and automatically chooses the most appropriate optical IS mode from a range of seven[3'] to best prevent camera shake and blur, ensuring stills and movies are captured in optimum quality.
