Canon Australia’s new IXUS 80 IS digital camera is a highly desirable little piece of tech. The classically coloured models combine Canon’s iconic IXUS design with advanced technology, to deliver stunning image quality.

Advanced technologies for optimum, spontaneous capture showcased in the IXUS 80 IS include Optical Image Stabiliser, Motion Detection Technology and Noise Reduction Technology. These combine to ensure blurring is controlled in an intuitive fashion, for even more gorgeous photographs.

The enhanced DiGIC III image processor delivers innovative features for photographing people, including in-camera red-eye correction. In addition, the improved Face Detection with White Balance (WB) ensures perfect skin tones, focus and lighting for photographing friends in any social setting.

Boasting an 8.0-megapixel CCD and 3x Optical Zoom Lens, the IXUS 80 IS provides the ultimate in image quality in a compact and stylish design.

Design

The striking, lightly curved and coloured body puts this model in a class of its own. Users can choose from blue, camel, pink, brown or silver, depending on their style or personal preference.

Canon’s impressive 2.5-inch PureColor LCD screen faithfully reproduces colour as seen, so viewing and sharing your carefree images with friends is easy. The large screen is also dirt and scratch resistant, perfect for slipping into a handbag or pocket (though be sure to pop it in a case, keys and the like can scratch the camera body).
