Zoom in to every detail
The stylish IXUS 155 captures every detail no matter how far away, with 20 Megapixels and 10x ultra-wide optical zoom. Smart Auto and Intelligent IS ensure brilliant results every time you point and shoot.
Slim, stylish and small enough to take anywhere the IXUS 155 captures superb quality, high resolution, detailed images that are perfect for large-scale prints (A3+) or creative cropping - thanks to a 20 Megapixel sensor and a powerful DIGIC 4+ processor, which offers improved speed, performance and functionality for brilliant fast results.
Shoot sweeping landscapes and great group shots with the 24mm ultra-wide angle lens that lets you fit more in the frame. Get nearer to distant subjects using the 10x optical zoom or get even closer without any loss of quality with 20x ZoomPlus.
Whatever you’re shooting your photos and videos will be sharp and detailed - even on the move, at full zoom or in low light – thanks to advanced Intelligent IS. It automatically adjusts the optical Image Stabilizer to the scene using 8 different modes to counteract camera shake and prevent blur.
Effortlessly shoot high quality photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and automatically selects the right settings from 32 variables. Press the Auto button to return instantly to Smart Auto from any other mode. Use the Help button for quick, easy-to-follow guidance on using your camera and its functions.
Frame and view your shots with ease and enjoy sharing them with friends using the 6.8 cm (2.7”) LCD screen. You can experiment with picture settings such as brightness and colour intensity and preview the results while framing using Live View Control.
Instantly record high quality HD movies (720p) with optical zoom by simply pressing the dedicated movie button.
Enjoy great people shots with Face Detection technology. It can detect multiple faces in a single frame making sure they remain in focus and with optimum brightness. Face Detection White Balance ensures natural skin tones even in unusual lighting conditions.
Experiment and have fun with creative modes such as Fish-eye Effect, Super Vivid, or Monochrome. Miniature Effect makes scenes in stills or movies look like miniature scale models.
Capture more shots from a single charge of the battery with Eco Mode.
