PowerShot and IXUS digital compact cameras
Unparalleled performance. Undeniable style.
With supreme quality and designer chic, the 7.1 Megapixel Digital IXUS 700 epitomises Canon’s commitment to excellence; combining spearhead technologies to put more than just style within your reach.
With its sleek ‘Perpetual Curve’ contours, the Digital IXUS 700 changes forever notions of what is possible in camera design. Concealing incredible 7.1 Megapixel power and a precision optics 3x zoom, this digital marvel delivers superb images suited for photo quality prints to A3+ size.
Review and share images and movie clips with ease on the large high-definition 2.0" LCD. Night Display mode automatically improves visibility when it is dark, while the user-controlled Quick-bright function lets you frame and review comfortably in low-light conditions. Record and playback extended 30 fps VGA movie clips with sound (up to 1GB files possible¹). Analyse fast action sequences by recording QVGA quality at 60 fps and watching in slow motion.
Efficient and responsive, the Digital IXUS 700 is powered by a Canon DIGIC II processor. Linking all key camera functions, DIGIC II drives fast auto-focus, outstanding camera performance, quick start-up times and first-class image quality. Like a hidden photographer's assistant, iSAPS uses DIGIC II’s power to analyse the scene and optimise key camera settings even before the shutter release is pressed. 14 shooting modes including 9 scene modes combine with a 9-point auto-focus system (AiAF) to deliver consistently brilliant results in every situation.
Create exciting visual effects with My Colors by making favourite colours more vivid, swapping one colour with another, or making all but one area of an image monochrome.
Use the exciting optional 40m depth Waterproof case to capture marine stills and movies while snorkelling and diving, and extend lighting options and your night distance range with the optional High Power Flash.
For instant full colour photos, connect your camera to any PictBridge compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button. It really is that easy. With a Canon SELPHY CP series printer, you can even print handy ID photo prints and Movie prints.
Canon's ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Macintosh) help you arrange albums, crop photographs and adjust image contrast and brightness. Access to CANON iMAGE GATEWAY² gives you 100MB online space for your own personal gallery, for sharing with family and friends.
