All style, no shake - Canon have today extended their IXUS range with the addition of two new compact digital cameras featuring Image Stabilizer.
Canon today strengthens their Digital IXUS range with the launch of two new 10Mp models: the Digital IXUS 90 IS and Digital IXUS 85 IS. Both models feature Canon’s lens-shift type optical Image Stabilizer (IS) for exceptional image quality, while expressing very distinct design styles. The solid, chiselled Digital IXUS 90 IS is enhanced by a powerful shape and seamless build; while the soft minimalism of the Digital IXUS 85 IS reflects a glimmering, understated elegance.
The two models share the core imaging prowess at the heart of Digital IXUS photography. In addition to their 3x optical zoom lenses with IS, the cameras feature enhanced auto focus performance for low-light shooting. Both cameras include Motion Detection Technology, which works in tandem with IS to reduce all kinds of blur, and Face Detection Technology with Face Select & Track and Face Detection White Balance for accurate, natural-looking people shots in all situations. Bright, clear PureColor LCD II screens (3in Digital IXUS 90 IS, 2.5in Digital IXUS 85 IS) enhance the user experience thanks to their wide viewing angle, high contrast easy-view displays, and glare-resistant coatings.
“The design versatility of Digital IXUS is clearly demonstrated by these two new models,” said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging, Europe. “These are cameras that enable users to express their individuality, both in the model they choose, and the images they make.”
