PowerShot and IXUS digital compact cameras
A stylish, high performer.
Unmistakably IXUS, the fashionable Digital IXUS 430 is a celebration of designer chic and miniaturisation, with an exquisitely finished all-metal body protecting a multitude of ingenious features.
Just the way it feels in your hand tells you this is an IXUS. The beautifully styled Digital IXUS 430 blends uncompromising build quality with an array of integrated technologies, advanced electronics and precision optics. A 4.0 Megapixel sensor allows up to A3 photo print enlargements.
A 3x optical zoom culminates 60 years of Canon optical heritage to deliver crisp, corner-to-corner clarity. A 3x optical zoom (11x combined) offers a wide angle of coverage, while the 9-point AiAF ensures accurate focusing, even with off-centre subjects.
High performance demands plenty of processing power – which is why the Digital IXUS 430 incorporates Canon's dedicated DIGIC processor. DIGIC delivers superb image quality at high speed with less drain on the battery for extended performance.
iSAPS is a hidden photographer’s assistant, instantly analysing the scene and making adjustments even before the shutter release is pressed. iSAPS optimises exposure, white balance and auto-focus settings in every shooting situation for consistently brilliant results.
An Intelligent Orientation Sensor automatically rotates images before playback. Movie mode allows up to 3-minute movie clips with sound recording, playback and 'in-camera' editing. Auto mode is perfect for 'point and shoot' situations, while Manual mode puts you in creative control.
The camera prints directly to all PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible printers. Create beautiful, instant photo prints by connecting camera to printer and pushing the Print/Share button, which also speeds up online sharing to any Windows PC. When used with a Canon Compact Photo Printer, you can print ID photos, or a series of movie clip frames.
With Canon’s ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Macintosh) you can arrange albums, crop photographs and adjust image contrast and brightness. Your new IXUS also comes with membership to CANON iMAGE GATEWAY, your personal online gallery with 100MB free space for sharing albums with family and friends. CANON iMAGE GATEWAY also allows you to personalise the camera with start-up image and sound-effect downloads.
For diving, surfing and skiing, an optional waterproof case gives your camera full protection to a depth of 40 metres.
