Elegant IXUS design
Designed to turn heads wherever it’s used, the Digital IXUS 990 IS has an elegant, sculpted appearance, finished in an attractive two-tone colour scheme.
A resolution of 12 MP lets you make poster-size prints, or creatively crop images to perfection.
Enjoy a huge range of framing options, and bring distant subjects up close, with a 5.0x optical zoom. Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer delivers blur-free results throughout the zoom range.
Scene Detection Technology for effortless ease
Smart Auto mode uses intelligent Scene Detection Technology to determine subject brightness, contrast, distance and overall hue. The camera then searches an incredible 18 possible modes, and selects the one which offers the perfect settings for the scene.
High speed processing
Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor drives fast processing speeds, responsive operation, superb image quality and colour reproduction. Richly detailed, cleaner images, even at high ISO speeds, are the result of advanced Noise Reduction.
The Digital IXUS 990 IS combats blur with Motion Detection Technology. Activated in Smart Auto mode, this uses a range of technologies to ascertain movement of both camera and subject. The optimum ISO is then automatically set for any situation.
Face Detection Technology
A suite of Face Detection technologies detects up to 35 faces in a shot and adjusts focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance – for optimal results with natural-looking skin tones. Blink Detection lets you avoid the disappointment of mistimed people shots. FaceSelf-Timer makes group photos easy, taking the shot when an extra face is detected in the frame.
3.0” PureColor LCD II
For detailed image review, easy framing and effortless menu navigation, the Digital IXUS 990 IS features a 3.0” PureColor LCD II. Optional on-screen Hints and Tips let you make the most of every feature. Active Display gives you a compelling, motion-activated way to review pictures.
Canon’s i-Contrast feature offers improved contrast and greater detail in tricky lighting conditions.
Zoom Blur mode
A special Zoom Blur mode physically zooms the lens while a picture is taken, giving the image a dynamic feeling of movement.
