Focus on the fun
With HS System for great shots in low light, Smart Auto and Full HD movies, the stylish metal bodied IXUS 115 HS lets you simply enjoy the fun.
HS System excels in low light allowing you to capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or tripod. A high performance DIGIC 4 processor and high sensitivity image sensor give superior image quality in all situations.
A quality 28mm wide-angle Canon lens brings you greater shooting possibilities, from big groups to indoor party shots. The 4x zoom with optical Image Stabilizer makes it easy to zoom in on details without camera shake.
A metal body gives the camera a solid feel and stylish finish while the slim design makes it easy to carry with you everywhere
The large screen with a tempered glass outer layer adds strength and gives high visibility in a variety of conditions with stunning contrast and colour. A wide viewing angle allows you to easily share your images and movies with friends.
High quality movies can now be recorded in Full HD 1080p format at 24fps. Dynamic IS makes sure your footage stays steady while filming and an HDMI connection ensures no loss of quality when playing back on an HDTV.
Smart Auto is truly automatic - detecting up to 32 different shooting scenes so you can take great pictures in complete confidence, knowing that the camera will take care of everything.
Capture fast-paced action using the High-speed Burst mode or slow down movement using Super Slow Motion Movie mode. Both modes provide dramatic and spectacular ways of recording fast-moving subjects.
Movie Digest captures up to 4-seconds of the action before a shot is taken, joining all the clips together from the same day into a single VGA movie to add to your collection of photos.
Creative shooting modes give you the opportunity to experiment. Fish-eye Effect re-creates the distortion of a fish-eye lens while Miniature Effect transforms landscapes into miniature scale models. For the look and feel of a picture taken with an older style camera try Toy Camera Effect.
Explore a world of underwater photography with either the more compact, lightweight and affordable WP-DC310L which allows shooting down to depths of 3m or the WP-DC39 down to 40m.
