Detailed Features

Classic IXUS design

The Digital IXUS 95 IS has a light, compact design that slips easily into a pocket or purse. It comes in a choice of four colours: silver, grey, blue or pink.*

10 Megapixels

A resolution of 10 Megapixels lets you turn photos into poster-size prints, or creatively crop images without losing the detail necessary for larger prints.

3.0x zoom

A 3.0x optical zoom lens gives you total framing flexibility when composing shots. Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer works to deliver blur-free results throughout the zoom range.

Scene Detection Technology for effortless ease

Smart Auto mode uses intelligent Scene Detection Technology to identify the scene based on brightness, contrast, distance and overall hue. The camera then selects the most appropriate scene mode - from a choice of 18 - to obtain automatically perfect settings, for effortless point-and-shoot operation.

Anti-blur with Motion Detection Technology

Motion Detection Technology uses a range of advanced methods to ascertain movement of both camera and subject, plus the speed at which this motion occurs. The optimum ISO is then automatically set for any situation.

Face Detection Technology

A suite of Face Detection technologies detects up to 35 faces in a shot, adjusting focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance – for optimal results with natural-looking skin tones. Faces can even be detected in profile, at an angle to the camera, or from long distances. FaceSelf-Timer takes a shot when an extra face is detected in the frame – making group photos easy.

High speed DIGIC 4 processing

Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor drives exceptional processing speeds, responsive operation, superb image quality and colour reproduction. Richly detailed, cleaner images, even at high ISO speeds, are the result of advanced Noise Reduction.

2.5” LCD

Frame and review shots with a bright, detailed 2.5” PureColor LCD II, which is protected against light reflections, scratches and dirt. A wide viewing angle lets you easily share images with friends.

i-Contrast

i-Contrast analyses a scene during shooting or playback, then boosts brightness in dark areas without blowing out light areas. This helps uncover previously hidden detail in the shadow areas of an image.

VGA movies

Supplement your still images with fun 30fps VGA movie clips. A Long Play mode lets you store twice as much footage on the camera’s memory card.
