The Digital IXUS 100 IS delivers exceptional style in an ultra-slim form. Beautiful photos are made easy by a host of intelligent Canon technologies, and can be supplemented by stunning HD video.

12.1 Megapixels
A resolution of 12.1 MP captures every scene in rich amounts of detail. Turn images into poster-size prints, or creatively crop images without losing the detail necessary for larger prints.

3.0x zoom
A 3.0x optical zoom lens gives you framing flexibility when composing shots. Canon’s in-lens optical Image Stabilizer works to deliver 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 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.

Anti-blur
The Digital IXUS 100 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 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 and self-portraits easy, taking the shot when an extra face is detected in the frame.

2.5” LCD
Frame and review shots with a bright 2.5” PureColor LCD II. A wide viewing angle lets you easily share images with friends.

i-Contrast
Canon’s i-Contrast feature offers improved contrast and greater detail in tricky lighting conditions.

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