Canon Digital IXUS 55 introduced - Canon announce IXUS 55, the latest addition to its Digital IXUS series of digital compacts
The IXUS 55 features 15 shooting modes and seven pre-set Special Scene modes, allowing photographers to take perfect shots every time, even in conditions with poor lighting. The IXUS 55 allows users to shoot extra-long (up to 1Gb) 30 frames per second VGA quality movie clips with full audio, which can be viewed on the the LCD screen or connected to a TV for full screen playback. Users of the IXUS 55 can also record fast action sequences at 60 frames per second QVGA quality, then analyse them in sharp slow motion. Special in-camera colour effects can be applied to both stil images and movies using My Colours.
The IXUS 55 is elegantly designed, featuring a unique starburst design radiating from the lens ring, finished in silver-white palladium plating on stainless steel, creating a sleek and slender digital compact with ultra-portability being small enough to slip into your pocket.
