PowerShot and IXUS digital compact cameras
Continuing the IXUS pedigree.
Blending graceful style with compelling design, the Digital IXUS 60's slender all-metal body conceals precision optics and cutting edge technology - for images as sharp as the camera that takes them.
Sleek and stylish with a stainless steel body, the Digital IXUS 60 epitomises classic IXUS elegance.
A 6.0 Megapixel CCD sensor captures every scene with enough detail for large, photo quality prints.
An Ultra-High Refractive Index Aspherical (UA) 3x optical zoom lens helps deliver crystal-clear performance in an exceptionally compact form.
Canon's DIGIC II processor ensures fast, responsive camera performance and superior image processing. iSAPS technology analyses each scene to optimise key camera settings even before a shot is taken.
The 2.5" LCD screen features a wide viewing angle for easy group viewing with friends. Quick-bright gives instant screen brightness in outdoor conditions. Night Display mode improves visibility after dark for easy night shooting.
Choose from a range of 16 shooting modes to get that perfect shot. Special Scene modes such as Beach, Foliage and Underwater help with tricky lighting conditions. My Colors allows special in-camera colour effects to be applied before and after shooting.
Shoot extra long* 30fps VGA movies with full audio, or record QVGA movies at 60fps and analyze in sharp slow motion.
ISO 800 and High ISO Auto settings allow you to shoot indoors or in low light conditions without using a flash. They also enable shooting at higher shutter speeds, reducing the risk of image blur.
Shoot stills in Widescreen 16:9 mode for playback on widescreen TV or printing on wide size paper with a SELPHY CP printer - perfect for viewing sweeping panoramas in all their original glory.
Connect to any PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button for instant photolab quality prints.
CANON iMAGE GATEWAY** provides 100MB of web space for your own online photo gallery. A comprehensive software suite is included for browsing, editing, downloading and organising photos, movies and slide shows.
Extend shooting possibilities with a range of optional accessories, including a Waterproof Case (40m) WP-DC4 and High Power Flash HF-DC1.
