Elegance and performance meet here in one of the most ergonomically designed cameras on the market. Feels great in the hand, the LCD screen sits flush and the 5x zoom lens is as smooth as silk. Also records in HD video as part of a fantastic set of features.

The following information is detailed on Canon's website: (opens a new window)

Elegant IXUS design
Designed to turn heads wherever its used, the Digital IXUS 990 IS has an elegant, sculpted appearance, finished in an attractive two-tone colour scheme.

12 Megapixels
A resolution of 12 MP lets you make poster-size prints, or creatively crop images to perfection.

Powerful zoom
Enjoy a huge range of framing options, and bring distant subjects up close, with a 5.0x optical zoom. Canons 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
Canons 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.

Canons 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.

HD Movies
Create smooth, high quality movies in high definition (1280x720, 30fps), then connect an optional HDMI cable for playback on HD widescreen TVs.

good camera
Great camera! Got one of these a few months ago. WELL worth £170. Can't do better, imo.
Cant find it on their site:oops:
Can anyone actually find the camera on the jessops website. no joy when searching for ixus or 990?

No doubt being a Canon it will take a good pic but it's probably a one off clearance item(?) and frankly I think you can do better for that money.

How about this Fuji from the jessops website with 10x optical zoom:
There is unlikely to be any stock by now. The thread is over three weeks old.
If you can find one at this price it's a steal. These are great cameras and I'd rather buy from Jessops rather than some unknown web retailer in case you need any backup.

Umm no... this was the party cam I bought to back up my Canon 50D and 5D MK II.

OK yes Im a canon fan boy bias is out

I bought it the week it came out for full price and have been totally stunned by it.

Use it a lot at gigs for video and stills and as a general party cam, that f2.8 lens at wide is pretty damn amazing.

The chip is family but I dont believe identical to the 14 meg chip used in the Eos 450 (?) and it also uses the image processor that in both my rather more expensive cameras.

Actually while it doesnt shoot 720p or 1080p which is a shame the VGA video quality is fine and the sound quality is well quite astounding, no boom or wofo when Im standign at the frotnt of a rock concert.

Would love to knwo where this deal is at Jessops as I had already lines someone up to buy one after he borrowed mine!
