v is for Video!
The familiar tiny proportions, luxurious stainless steel body and engineering excellence of the amazing new Canon Digital IXUS v will not come as a surprise, to owners and aficionados of the original Digital IXUS.
The new ultra-compact Canon Digital IXUS v still screams style, sophistication and big city chic, while its clean cool design delivers a powerful hit of high-tech 'feel-good factor'. Look closer and you will see that the real difference is inside the slick brushed-steel case where the Digital IXUS v just got a whole lot better at making one-click photos, videos and prints.
As with all Canon cameras, you can be certain that Canon's advanced technology ensures the Digital IXUS v performs as well as it looks. A 2x optical zoom lens (35 - 70mm, 35 mm equivalent) and 2.11 million pixel CCD deliver amazingly sharp photos every time. A seamless digital zoom allows the IXUS v user complete freedom when composing a shot, while a powerful built-in flash fires automatically, when required. No fuss and definitely no complications.
When the going gets tough, the Digital IXUS v really comes into its own. Even at a crowded and dimly lit party, the Digital IXUS v's AiAF and AIM (Artificial Intelligent Auto Focus, Advanced Integrated Multi-point Metering) will ensure beautiful reproductions with a single click of the shutter button. You just choose the picture you want and let the Digital IXUS v do the rest!
v is for Video!…In addition to still image mode, the versatile new Canon Digital IXUS v offers a movie mode capable of capturing high resolution VGA movies, and with up to 30-seconds of flicker free, full motion-picture movie clips complete with sound, you need never miss the whole story. With its intuitive controls the Digital IXUS v really is for everyone.
Instant credit card sized full colour photographic prints are now a reality. By linking the Digital IXUS v to Canon's Card Photo Printer CP-10, great looking photos can be printed in seconds. Users simply select an image and the Digital IXUS v does the rest, automatically optimising the image and sending it to the printer, which then produces a perfect photographic print.
Technically, the Canon Digital IXUS v is one of the most advanced digital cameras in its class. A new adaptive digital signal processor and RGB CCD filter, delivers faithful and vibrant colour reproduction, while noise reduction is used for shutter speeds longer than 1/6th second, ensuring clear and detailed images. With additional power saving designs the Digital IXUS v's Li-ion batteries last longer than ever before and as the Digital IXUS v is fitted with a Type-I Compact Flash card slot enabling up to 192MB of photos* there are excellent reasons for capturing great images whenever you can.
Canon supplies a full range of drivers with the Digital IXUS v offering compatibility with Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME and Macintosh. A complete package of photo and video manipulation and printing software is also supplied.
A full range of accessories is available for the Digital IXUS v including a robust All Weather Case, ideal for the beach or on the slopes, a strongly made Softcase to protect the camera from scratches and a range of spare rechargeable Li-ion battery packs and chargers.
