IXUS design, distilled.
With its ultra-slim metallic form, the Digital IXUS 100 IS takes digital camera design to new heights of elegance. Its combination of supremely slender profile and high performance is achieved by a combination of Canon technologies, including two special glass-molded UA lenses.
Optical Image Stabilizer
With Canon's market leading optical Image Stabilizer you can keep images sharp by reducing the effects of camera shake throughout the zoom range.
HD movies in stereo
Create smooth, high quality movies in High Definition (1280x720, 30fps), which you can view and share with friends on the camera's bright 2.7" PureColor LCD II screen. Or use the mini HDMI cable included to connect to a HD widescreen TV with no loss of quality.
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.
Face Detection Technology
A suite of Face Detection technologies detects faces in a shot and adjusts focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance - for optimal results with natural-looking skin tones. Blink Detection avoids mistimed people shots. FaceSelf-Timer makes group photos and self-portraits easy.
High speed processing
Canon's DIGIC 4 processor drives exceptional 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.
