Striking Titanium

Pushing the boundaries of camera design, the Digital IXUS 900 Ti's perpetual curves are realised through a precision-engineered titanium body. The Touch Control Dial offers fingertip access to key camera functions.

10.0 Megapixels

A massive 10.0 Megapixels resolution delivers sharp poster prints with room for creative cropping.

3x Optical Zoom

An ultra-compact 3x optical zoom lens offers exceptional clarity while allowing the camera to maintain its slender profile.

DIGIC III

Canon's DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction. iSAPS technology analyses each scene to optimise key camera settings before a shot is taken.

Face Detection AF/AE

Face Detection AF/AE ensures superb people shots by automatically detecting the subjects in the frame and setting the optimum focus and exposure. My Category tags each image based on face detection and shooting mode for easy image navigation, printing, deleting and much more.

Large LCD

The high resolution 2.5" LCD screen features a wide viewing angle for easy group viewing. The Image Inspection Tool enables instant checks for image sharpness.

Low light shooting

Low-noise ISO 1600 enables flash-free shooting indoors and at night. High ISO Auto mode automatically sets an optimal high ISO setting to allow for faster shutter speeds, reducing the effects of camera shake.

Shooting modes

Choose from 18 shooting modes including 11 Special Scene modes to help with tricky environments. ISO 3200 Special Scene mode enables shooting in very dark environments where flash cannot be used. An advanced Movie mode allows for high resolution XGA recording (15 fps).

My Colors

Apply special in-camera colour effects both during and after shooting. Lighten skin tones in portraits, or add extra vibrancy to blue skies.

Safety Zoom and Digital Tele-Converter

Safety Zoom takes advantage of the camera's 10 Megapixels to offer extra zoom magnification without affecting image quality. Capture images at up to 6.8x zoom with enough resolution for lab-quality postcard (10 x 15cm) prints. Use the Digital Tele-Converter feature for extra telephoto reach on all your shots – just like adding a tele-converter lens to the camera.

Direct Printing

Connect to any PictBridge compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button for instant lab quality prints.
