The IXUS 300 HS utilises Canon’s HS System, incorporating a new CMOS sensor with Canon’s DiG!C 4 image processor that can help capture images in low-light conditions. The IXUS 300 HS camera also has high definition (HD) movie-shooting capabilities with a new Super Slow Motion movie function, allowing users to capture memories in stunning video.
Along with Canon’s HS SYSTEM, the f/2.0 lens further increases image sharpness and quality by allowing more light to enter, permitting higher shutter speeds and in turn reducing the effect of camera shake. The IXUS 300 HS has the fastest high-speed burst rate to date in a Canon compact digital camera with 8.4 frames per second (fps). The combination of Canon’s HS SYSTEM and the f/2.0 lens enables users to take photos without a flash.
The new IXUS 300 HS also incorporates Canon’s TruCapture technology, making it easy for users to get the shot they want. TruCapture combines three Canon proprietary technologies – Optical Image Stabilizer; a DiG!C 4 Image Processor; and Intelligent Auto.
New to the IXUS camera range, the IXUS 300 HS has aperture and shutter controls allowing for further flexibility and creative control.
“Having just celebrated 10 years of style, innovation and photographic excellence for IXUS digital compact cameras, we are excited to be launching a new IXUS product that lives up to, and we believe surpasses, this reputation,” said Danielle Hinton, Brand Manager – DSC, Canon Australia. “The IXUS 300 HS delivers the highest image quality available in the IXUS range and the new high sensitivity sensor lets users take better photos in a wider range of situations including low-light scenes.”
The new Canon IXUS 300 HS features a new Super Slow Motion movie function that allows users to record video at a very high frame rate, possessing the appearance of slow motion when played back at regular speed. The Super Slow Motion movie captures a subject at 240 frames-per-second (fps), and later plays back the footage at 30 fps.
The new IXUS 300 HS will be available from late May in three different colour variations: red (exclusive to Teds Camera Stores), black and silver. Pricing will be announced at a later date.
