Canon today announces the exquisitely compact Digital IXUS i 5 - an undeniably chic new addition to the legendary IXUS collection. Available in four irresistible finishes - Platinum Silver, Midnight Blue, Bordeaux Red and Storm Grey - Canon's smallest ever 5.0 Megapixel camera is the ultimate digital accessory, designed to make taking great pictures simple. Half the size of many mobile phones, the silky look-and-feel all-metal body weighs in at just 100g. With a 6.5x digital zoom to close in on the action, the IXUS i 5 can shoot 180 second video clips with full sound and playback (up to 30 seconds at hi-resolution VGA). A Print/Share button makes for one-touch photo-printing to any PictBridge compatible photo printer.

Canon IXUS i5 - 5 Megapixel camera
IXUS i 5 may be tiny but it packs plenty of power. In addition to the 5.0 Megapixel sensor, a purpose-built DIGIC integrated circuit allows accurate processing of complex white balance and colour rendition algorithms to deliver superb natural colour reproduction, even for photographers with no interest in adjusting camera settings.

Canon Digital i5 - iSAPS technology
Every IXUS i 5 comes complete with iSAPS - its own photographer's assistant. Even before the shutter-release is pressed, iSAPS analyses the scene and makes adjustments to exposure, white balance and auto-focus settings for consistently brilliant results. Special scene modes - such as Portrait, Landscape, Night Snapshot, Indoor and Underwater help create great results with confidence in tricky shooting conditions, while the 9-point AiAF system gets even off-centre subjects sharply in focus. For beach fun, skiing, snorkelling and surfing, an optional 3m depth all-weather case is available.

Canon Digital IXUS i5 - Orientation Sensor
An Intelligent Orientation Sensor takes into account the likely position of the sky and foreground before setting focus, exposure and white balance settings. It then rotates images to the correct orientation for easy, enjoyable playback. The IXUS i 5 comes supplied with a full range of software to simplify image upload and management. In addition, membership to Canon's web portal CANON iMAGE GATEWAY is free for every IXUS i 5 customer, giving 100MB of album space on the web for storing and sharing favorite photographs and albums - a private online photo gallery.
