Canon IXUS 220 HS - the classic IXUS combination of beauty and brains

Canon’s new IXUS 220 HS is a technical tour de force including HS System, 5x zoom and Full HD in a slim, stainless steel body with a choice of three colours: black, red and silver.


Featuring Canon’s unique HS system the IXUS 220 HS excels in low light conditions. Combining a high performance DIGIC 4 processor with a new high-sensitivity 12.1 MP CMOS sensor, you can capture full detail whatever the light.

The IXUS 220 HS has a 24mm ultra-wide lens that helps you really capture the grandeur of panoramic views as well as group shots at parties.  The 5x zoom features an optical Image Stabilizer so you can focus in on the detail of a scene and not worry about image blur from camera shake.

Movie makers are well-catered for. Full HD (1080p) movies are recorded in crystal clear stereo sound with the reassurance of Dynamic IS, helping to prevent wobble and shake. The camera also features Super Slow Motion Movie mode that allows you to make your own slow motion films.

True to the IXUS ethos, the IXUS 220 HS is beautifully simple. Smart Auto analyses your shooting scene and chooses from 32 scene types to get just the right settings whilst the 6.7cm (2.7”) PureColor II G LCD screen offers excellent contrast so you can see images easily and quickly. All wrapped in a black, red or silver stainless steel body.
