Add to that it's fantastic image quality and Direct Print capability and this camera is set to be the choice for chic digital photographers everywhere."

The DIGITAL IXUS v² connects directly to Canon's innovative Direct Print printers. Direct Print is the easiest way to get superb photo prints from a Canon digital camera in no time at all. Simply connect the camera to the printer, select an image and watch as it becomes a perfect print. No matter what the image, the Card Photo Printer CP-100 is ideal for brilliant 10x15 cm photos making this printer every DIGITAL IXUS owner's must have accessory. For larger photos the Canon Bubble Jet S820D can handle up to A4 size prints.
Despite its amazingly compact form, the DIGITAL IXUS v² boasts superb image quality. Combining a 2.0 Mega Pixel CCD and 2x optical zoom lens (35 - 70mm, 35mm equivalent) and, with Canon's advanced 3-point AiAF focusing and evaluative exposure control, this camera delivers high quality, sharp photos with every shot no matter what the setting.
The IXUS v² allows owners to demonstrate their creativity, with a movie mode for clips up to 30 seconds and photo effects mode, letting them choose the most fitting look for their memories from vivid color, to classic black and white. The IXUS v² also incorporates an "intelligent orientation-sensor" which automatically detects and rotates the images ready for viewing on the LCD monitor, or for downloading to a computer.
Canon supplies drivers with the DIGITAL IXUS v² for Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows Me and Windows XP, and Macintosh 8.6 - 9.2 and OS X v10.1. It also comes complete with a package of photo and video manipulation and printing software.
A full range of accessories is available for the DIGITAL IXUS v² including a new 30-meter waterproof case, for use on the beach, or the slopes, a stylish soft case, and an AC Power supply. The new car battery charger even allows charging on the move.
