Slim, simple and strikingly IXUS
Inside a slim, stylish metal body the IXUS 125 HS packs a host of helpful features - so taking great shots is a breeze, even in low light. Face ID prioritises friends and Full HD movies add to the fun.
The IXUS 125 HS has a beautiful slim, metal body that’s small enough to take everywhere. Fit more in the frame for great group shots and panoramic landscapes with 24mm ultra-wide-angle and use the 5x optical zoom (up to 10x with ZoomPlus) to get close to distant objects.
HS System excels in low light so you can capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or tripod. Advanced DIGIC 5 processing and a high-sensitivity 16.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor give exceptional image quality in all situations.
Intelligent IS automatically adjusts the optical Image Stabilizer to the scene from 7 modes – counteracting movement to prevent blur and delivering sharp and detailed photos and videos at full zoom and in low light.
A large, high quality 460k dot LCD screen with excellent visibility allows easy framing and reviewing of images from any angle plus effortless menu navigation. A tempered glass outer layer gives extra durability.
Record superb Full HD (1080p) movies at 24fps with optical zoom. Intelligent IS keeps footage steady while filming, even at full zoom. An HDMI connection ensures loss-less playback on an HDTV.
Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects perfect settings from 58 variables (21 in movies). It also works with faces stored in Face ID and adapts shooting according to registered age – for example turning off flash and sounds when a sleeping baby is detected.
Face ID lets you register up to 12 faces of family and friends, so they are automatically the focusing priority in every shot, and tags images with their names so they are easy to find in playback.
Use High-speed Burst to capture non-stop, fast-paced action or slow things down with Super Slow Motion Movie. Handheld Night Scene combines a sequence of high-speed shots into one file to capture nightscapes without a tripod.
Movie Digest records 4 seconds of video before each photo is shot and then joins all the recorded short clips into a bonus HD (720p) movie.
Protect your camera outdoors and shoot underwater down to 3m depths with a waterproof case.
