Picture quality is excellent, numerous shooting modes help get the best shot, even in a ordinarily lit room at night ist possible to get noise free shots with decent colour. Panormic mode is easy, with a line electronically displayed on the screeen showing where the join will be!
Bad points:
Fiddly connection for USB, menus not as easy to grasp as other makes I have tried eg Olmpus. Tiny memory card supplied.

    Stabilizer

Sophisticated in every aspect.

Advanced Titanium
Inspired by the smooth curves of the human form, the moulded titanium body of the Digital IXUS 960 IS fits comfortably in the hand. The Touch Control Dial offers fingertip access to key camera functions.

12.1 Megapixels
A massive 12.1 Megapixels resolution delivers enough detail for huge poster-size prints and creative image manipulation.

Sophisticated optics
The Digital IXUS 960 IS incorporates a 3.7x zoom lens with Canon’s renowned optical Image Stabilizer technology to counteract camera shake. The ultra-compact lens incorporates an Ultra-High Refractive Aspherical Index (UA) element for the capture of high quality images throughout the zoom range.

Total anti-blur solution
In tandem with IS, user-selected Auto ISO Shift offers enhanced protection against camera shake. High ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto target the blur caused by typical subject movement.

DIGIC III with Face Detection AF/AE/FE
Canon’s DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. Face Detection AF/AE/FE and iSAPS analyse the scene, detect subjects in the frame and select the optimum focus, exposure and flash settings.

Red-Eye Correction
When operating in playback mode, Face Detection Technology allows you to quickly and accurately correct red-eye without affecting the rest of the image.

PureColor LCD
A high resolution (230,000 pixels) PureColor LCD displays richer, vivid colours with sharp definition. An anti-glare, scratch-resistant coating aids visibility in bright light and adds extra protection against knocks and scrapes.

Shooting Modes and My Colors
18 shooting modes including Beach, Indoor and ISO 3200 aid the capture of still images in tricky lighting conditions. My Colors in-camera photo effects can be applied both during and after shooting.

Movie Options
Movie modes include Long Play (LP) for VGA (30fps) clips that use half the normal memory card space, and Time Lapse Movie, which captures changing scenes – such as a flower’s bloom or a bustling city street – for accelerated playback as smooth video clips.

Safety Zoom and Digital Tele-Converter
Safety Zoom takes advantage of the camera’s 12.1 Megapixels to offer extra zoom magnification without affecting image quality. The Digital Tele-Converter adds extra telephoto capability – just like adding a tele-converter lens to the camera.
