Canon IXUS 970 IS hits the market



Canon has a spanking new digital camera in town – the IXUS 970 IS. This 10 megapixel digital camera will boast the longest ever zoom lens in the range at 5x optical zoom, and is accompanied by an enhanced version of Canon’s lens-shift type optical Image Stabilizer (IS). Check out the exhaustive list of features right after the jump – while the camera might look pretty normal from outside, it is actually a heavyweight on the inside that makes it sound like a bridge between folks who want to make the jump from point and shoot cameras to something a little bit more serious.

Canon Digital IXUS 970 IS features :-

    • Uncompromising Digital IXUS style and build quality
    • 10.0 Megapixel image sensor
    • 5x optical zoom lens
    • Enhanced lens-shift type optical Image Stabilizer (IS) delivering a 4-stop advantage
    • High ISO Auto with Motion Detection Technology
    • Face Detection Technology now with White Balance and Face Select & Track
    • Automatic Red-Eye Correction in shooting and playback
    • DIGIC III with Noise Reduction Technology
    • 2.5″ PureColor LCD II plus optical viewfinder (OVF)
    • Enhanced auto focus performs at up to 1-stop darker
    • Multi Control Dial
    • 18 shooting modes including new Sunset mode and My Colors photo effects
    • Extensive movie options including VGA 30fps, Long Play and Time Lapse movie modes
    • Optional accessories include Soft Case and High Powered Flash
    • Easy printing with PictBridge and quick print order settings in playback mode

I believe the above mentioned features are pretty much self-explanatory, and what is interesting to note is the Canon IXUS 970 IS’ menu features which empowers users to manipulate their images in-camera without actually needing to install computer software. This will save a whole lot of time, as you no longer need to lug a notebook around to make edits to your newly taken images, but it must also be said that functionality on a digital camera alone won’t offer that much flexibility compared to what an image editing program on the computer/notebook can.
