Canon launches new compact digital camera
Dubai, July 12, 2010
Canon Middle East, a subsidiary of Canon Europe, has launched a new premium compact digital camera capable of capturing outstanding stills and high definition (HD) video.
Available in blasted steel silver, matt black or glossy white finishes, the new Ixus 300 HS offers a supercharged combination of speed, usability and creative control, a statement said.
The Ixus 300 HS is the first model to feature Canon’s new HS System, combining a high-sensitivity 10.0 Megapixel CMOS sensor with fast Digic 4 processing for enhanced low light performance and high-speed shooting.
An f/2.0 wide-angle lens provides the ability to use faster shutter speeds and make subjects stand out by creatively blurring the background, while a range of manual settings offer a new level of artistic flexibility, the statement said.
The camera shoots in low-light or at high-speed at the touch of a button, while Smart Auto with scene detection technology helps the user capture spot-on shots in all conditions by automatically selecting the optimum settings from 22 variables.
The Ixus 300 HS also offers HD movie recording with high quality stereo sound. The optical image stabilizer reduces the effects of camera shake to deliver super sharp footage on the move.
The super slow motion movie mode, enables one to capture fast-moving subjects at 240 frames per second and play them back at 30 frames per second – providing a dramatic record of fast-paced action, according to the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
