Seriously small, seriously advanced
Digital IXUS i might be tiny but it packs plenty of processing muscle. Purpose-built DIGIC (Digital Image Core) circuitry allows for uncompromisingly accurate and precise processing of complex white balance and colour rendition algorithms. This results in superb natural colour reproduction, even for photographers with neither the time nor the inclination to fiddle with lots of settings.
Even before the shutter release is pressed, iSAPS (intelligent scene analysis based on photographic space) technology is analysing the scene and making camera adjustments to deliver fast focusing and perfect exposures. For compulsive and instinctive in-focus shooting, the Quick Shot function does away with the time lag between pressing the shutter release and actual release.
Prints on the move
By connecting the IXUS i direct to Canon's battery powered Card Photo Printer CP-300, users can enjoy instant, portable lab-quality prints - anywhere, anytime.
Expanding digital world
Automatic membership to Canon's web portal CiG (CANON iMAGE GATEWAY) gives every Digital IXUS i customer 100MB of album space on the web for storing and sharing favorite photographs and albums - a private online photo gallery. Function icons, themes and sound effects can also be downloaded so the camera's look and feel is always fresh.
