Here comes the very latest Canon Advanced Photo System (APS) camera in the award-winning IXUS range! With its trend-setting, third-generation, 21st-century styling and technology, the super-compact IXUS III-[one of] the world's smallest compact zoom camera[s]-packs all the latest features into an elegantly slim (2:1 proportion) and featherweight (150g) brushed-satin case.
The IXUS III is loaded with a high-quality, high-performance, 23.5 - 54 mm, 2.3x zoom lens for the ultimate in high image quality. This function in concert with a 7-point convertible, 3-point artificial intelligence (AiAF) autofocus that eliminates off-centre focusing errors, all managed by Canon's ultra-high performance AE/AF CMOS sensor.
For ease of operation, the distinctive blue-phosphorous LCD display has built-in EL (electro-luminescent) backlight which makes monitoring your IXUS III that much easier under low-light sequences. The highly efficient Fly-back Flash charging system significantly reduces recharge time, and features an energy-saving mode.
The Canon IXUS III-an instant fashion classic, with state-of-the-art performance!
IXUS III Features:
"Cool and Casual" Sleek Design
Sporting a smooth, rounded body line with its signature chrome centre-flash, the IXUS III is housed in a fashionably cool, silver-metallic finish with a 2-to-1 body proportion, for both a fresh new-era feel and ease of handling. The outer lens-barrier provides total protection for the camera when you're on the move, but then slides easily aside to reveal the renowned Canon 2.3x zoom lens.
Rear Panel Layout
The IXUS III also features a redesigned rear-panel layout that is easier to understand and simpler than ever to use. For improved operability and easier viewing in low-light conditions, the highly distinctive LCD data panel displays easy-to-read icons on an electro-luminescent background.
Hiding inside is Canon's light and slim 2.3x lens with a 23.5mm - 54mm zoom range that delivers excellent definition and sharpness with high contrast and superior picture performance in both close-up and wide-angle shots.
The newly developed passive autofocus also delivers improved AF performance by incorporating 3-point AiAF and AF-compensated light metering. These are managed by Canon's original, unified AE/AF CMOS sensor chip which handles backlight metering linked to the focus points, and which is both ultra-compact and gives the IXUS III its competitive price.
The new Fly-back charging unit is highly efficient and capable of increasing the number of films taken up to 20 rolls, as well as reducing the charging time per shot from six to five seconds.
New Custom Functions
In addition to the real-time release, flash-mode memory, and auto-rewind functions, the IXUS III now also offers centre-spot range metering, for shooting without AiAF, and a continuous-shooting function for sequential shutter release at the rate of 0.8 frames per second with flash disabled.
