The IXUS 300 HS blends superlative imaging with exquisite style. Its angular, sporty design is crafted in high-quality stainless steel, available in matt black and blasted steel silver – for an IXUS that will turn heads wherever it’s used.
High-sensitivity 10.0 MP CMOS sensor
A high-sensitivity, back-illuminated CMOS sensor gives outstanding image quality in a wide variety of lighting conditions. Even images taken at high ISOs feature low noise levels and a wide dynamic range.
Wide and bright lens
A bright f/2.0 lens allows exceptional versatility, capturing low-light images and fast-moving subjects at higher shutter speeds. Its 28mm wide angle coverage lets you put more in the frame, while Canon’s advanced optical IS reduces blur caused by camera shake.
The new HS System dramatically improves image quality in all situations. A powerful combination of DIGIC 4 processing and high-sensitivity sensor, the HS System allows full-resolution shooting at up to ISO 3200 (10MP) or up to ISO 6400 in Low Light mode (2.5MP).
High-speed or slow-motion
Combined with the CMOS sensor, the HS System enables continuous shooting at up to 3.7 shots/sec at 10MP or 8.4 shots/sec at 2.5MP – ideal for capturing the moment in fast-paced sports subjects. Switch to 240fps Super Slow Motion Movie mode and show events unfolding in breathtaking slow motion.
7.5 cm (3.0") PureColor II G LCD
A 16:9 aspect 7.5 cm (3.0”) PureColor II G LCD is ideal for shooting and playback of HD movies in wide format. A tempered glass layer improves strength and heightens visibility in bright conditions.
Smart Auto mode uses Scene Detection Technology to determine the shooting scene from subject brightness, contrast, distance and hue. The camera selects the appropriate scene from a possible 22, and applies optimal settings. Smart Flash Exposure intelligently adjusts flash for best results while Smart Shutter mode lets you trigger the shot by winking, smiling, or after an extra face enters the frame.
High Definition movies
Create stunning HD 720p movies with stereo sound and optical zooming. Then use the integrated HDMI port to connect to a compatible HDTV.
Switching to Av or Tv modes allows you to add your personal touch, by adjusting depth of field or freezing motion. Creative modes include Fish-eye Effect, Miniature Effect and Low Light mode.
