Canon IXUS 980 IS test photos

LetsGoDigital received a test model of the Canon Digital IXUS 980 IS. A new sibling of the IXUS series that is gradually consisting of a huge amount of models. The Canon IXUS 980 IS however, is no longer true to tradition that used to evolve around design and a convenient (full auto) operation. The Canon 980 IS camera offers the possibility of manual aperture or shutter setting, just like the main part of the PowerShot models. This is a setting that I myself have been waiting for impatiently. And it is exactly that combination of a stylishly designed camera, at which you don't only have to depend on an auto camera setting, that is appealing to the photographer.

The new Canon IXUS 980 IS camera features Canon's optical Image Stabilizer ensuring sharp pictures through the entire zoom range including photographing in bad light circumstances. The Canon IXUS IS is equipped with Canon's new DIGIC 4 image processor. This processor should guarantee an extremely fast processing and noise-free pictures in addition to offering intelligent technologies, which adds positively to the ease of operation and the chance of a successful picture.

For those looking to take their photography to the next level, the Canon Digital IXUS 980 IS offers a first for Digital IXUS: a Manual Mode that allows control of shutter speed and aperture . This is ideal for unusual lighting situations or expressive, experimental shots. For split-second photo opportunities, a second new mode - QuickShot - uses the optical viewfinder for framing and focusing, virtually eliminating shutter lag. The Canon IXUS 980 IS also features Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer technology, for blur-free shots throughout the zoom range and in low-light conditions.

The Canon IXUS 980 IS is digital camera on my priority list to be reviewed soon. In addition to the test in practice at which operation and functionality of the IXUS camera are evaluated together with the captured pictures, the technical test in our DIWA Lab is crucial to come to a balanced final conclusion. The Canon 980 IS sample photos were taken with a full production cameral which means that this camera model is equal to the Canon IXUS camera that the consumer can expect to purchase. The test photos were taken in Purmerend, the Netherlands. See the Canon IXUS photo gallery at LetsGoDigital.
