PowerShot and IXUS digital compact cameras
Looks sharp. Stays sharp
The delightfully compact Digital IXUS 800 IS combines IXUS style with advanced photographic features. Experience sharper flash-free shooting with ISO 800 and a 4x optical Image Stabilizer zoom lens.
A 6.0 Megapixel CCD sensor captures every scene with enough fine detail for large photo quality prints.
A compact 4x optical zoom lens features Canon's optical Image Stabilizer (IS) technology to counteract camera shake - particularly noticeable at slower shutter speeds, full zoom and in low light conditions.
ISO 800 and High ISO Auto settings combine with optical IS to allow flash-free shooting indoors or in low light conditions. They also enable shooting at higher shutter speeds, further reducing image blur from camera shake and subject movement.
An elegant finish in metallic silver and ebony black completes an exceptionally compact body.
Canon's DIGIC II processor ensures fast, responsive camera performance and superb 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 and Underwater help with tricky lighting conditions. My Colors allows special in-camera colour effects to be applied both before and after shooting.
Shoot stills in Widescreen 16:9 mode for playback on widescreen TV or printing on wide size paper with a SELPHY CP printer.
Shoot extra long* 30fps VGA movies with full audio, or record QVGA movies at 60fps and analyze in sharp slow motion.
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-DC5 and High Power Flash HF-DC1.
