PowerShot and IXUS digital compact cameras
The essence of IXUS
Inspired by the very first IXUS, the slender Digital IXUS 70 is a masterpiece of minimalist design. Equipped with leading Canon technologies, it offers performance to match its breathtaking looks.
The Digital IXUS 70 brings contemporary styling to the classic IXUS design concept. Clean lines and sharp edges combine in an ultra slim body to achieve a look of understated, timeless elegance.
A 7.1 Megapixel CCD sensor captures every scene with razor sharp detail, for photo quality prints up to poster size.
An Ultra-High Refractive Index Aspherical (UA) 3x optical zoom lens delivers crystal-clear performance in an exceptionally compact form.
Canon's DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. iSAPS technology analyses each scene to optimise key camera settings even before a shot is taken.
Face Detection AF/AE/FE ensures superb people shots by automatically detecting the subjects in the frame and selecting the optimum focus, exposure and flash settings for the scene. My Category tags each image based on face detection and shooting mode for easy navigation, printing, deleting and more.
During playback Face Detection Technology allows you to quickly and accurately correct red-eye.
A high resolution (230,000 pixels) PureColor LCD displays richer, vivid colours with sharp definition. An anti-glare, scratch-resistant coating adds extra protection against knocks and scrapes.
Shoot clear, bright images in dim conditions with ISO 1600 - ideal for parties and restaurants or where flash photography is not allowed. Use ISO Auto Shift to avoid image blur with the touch of a button whenever camera shake is predicted.
Choose from 17 shooting modes including a range of Special Scene modes, optimised for specific shooting situations. Apply in-camera colour effects to images and movies with My Colors.
Shoot long¹ VGA movies with sound. Use the Time Lapse Movie function to capture changing scenes - a flower’s bloom, drifting clouds or a bustling city street - for accelerated playback as smooth video clips.
The customisable Shortcut button provides one-touch access to your favourite shooting options. Assignable functions include exposure compensation, white balance and instant Movie shooting.
