Canon Australia’s Product Manager for Digital Still Cameras, Kimbely Langton said, “Canon is very proud of the new additions to the IXUS range. These new models incorporate cutting-edge technology in compact, stylish camera bodies, perfect for capturing flawless photographs in any social setting.”
The new Ixus models come with an enhanced DiGIC III image processor, in-camera red-eye correction, and Face Detection with White Balance (WB) that ensures better-looking photos, says Canon.
The Ixus 970 IS comes with a 10-megapixel CCD sensor, a 5x optical zoom lens with Optical Image Stabiliser, a 2.50inch PureColor LCD screen, and includes a Safety Zoom function that prevents image degradation when shooting distant subjects. The Ixus 90 IS also comes with a 10-megapixel sensor and 3 x optical zoom lens with Optical Image Stabiliser, but has a 3-inch LCD screen for a bigger view. Finally, the Ixus 85 is touted as the thinnest Ixus model but will have a 10-megapixel sensor, 3 x optical zoom lens, and 2.5-inch LCD screen.
Pricing and Availability
The Canon Ixus 970 IS, Ixus 90 IS, and Ixus 85 IS will be available from April 2008 and will have an RRP of $549, $479, and $429, respectively.
