Another stylish digital compact is added to the Ixus range. Shown on the right this new addition is one of the smallest digital cameras you can buy. Canon have added more than a new stylish body. They've improved the user interface of the camera and added various features which are outlined in the press release below.
Canon, leaders in photographic and imaging technology, unveils the new ultra compact Digital IXUS v2. This new addition with its luxurious stainless steel body encapsulates the true essence behind the IXUS design philosophy - sleek looks, smart technology and stylish design.
"The Digital IXUS v2 will impress consumers with its style and sophisticated look. Add to that it's fantastic image quality and Direct Print capability and this camera is set to be the ideal choice for conscious digital photographers everywhere." Says Robert King, Marketing Manager, Canon (UK) Ltd.
No compromises have been made on image quality as the Digital IXUS v2 combines a 2.0M Pixel CCD and 2x optical zoom lens (35 - 70mm, 35mm equivalent) with Canon's advanced 3-point AiAF focusing and evaluative exposure control to deliver clear, sharp images in all photographic situations.
The Digital IXUS v2 allows owners to demonstrate their creativity, with a movie mode for clips up to 30 seconds and photo effects mode, letting them choose the most fitting look for their memories from vivid color, to classic black and white. The Digital IXUS v2 also incorporates an "intelligent orientation-sensor" which automatically detects and rotates the images ready for viewing on the LCD monitor or for downloading to a computer.
The Digital IXUS v2 connects directly
to Canon's innovative Direct Print printers. Direct Print is the easiest way to
obtain instant high quality photo prints from a Canon digital camera. Simply connect
the camera to the printer, select an image and watch as it becomes a perfect print.
The new Card Photo Printer CP-100 is
ideal for brilliant 10x15 cm photos whilst for larger photos the Canon Bubble Jet S820D can handle up to A4 size prints.
Canon supplies drivers with the Digital IXUS v2 for Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows Me and Windows XP, and Macintosh 8.6 - 9.2 and OS X v10.1. It also comes complete with a package of photo and video manipulation and printing software.
A full range of accessories is available for the Digital IXUS v2 including a new 30-meter waterproof case, for use on the beach or the slopes, a stylish soft case, and an AC Power supply. The new car battery charger even allows charging on the move.
The Digital IXUS v2 is supporting Exif 2.2 (Exif Print).
The Digital IXUS v2 is available end of March for around 399.99 inc VAT.
