Canon Digital IXUS 55
Featuring 5.0 megapixels, 3x optical zoom and DIGIC II processing, the IXUS 55 also boasts a 2.5 inch LCD screen with wide viewing angle. The camera's 5.0megapixel CCD sensor allows the user to produce high resolution, photo quality prints up to A3 size and Canon's DIGIC II processor ensures fast, responsive camera performance. The large LCD screen improves visibility, making it easier to share images during playback with friends and family. The camera's LCD screen also features QuickBright and Night Display settings. QuickBright gives instant screen brightness in outdoor conditions while the Night Display mode improves visibility in low-light conditions for easier night shooting.
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.
