Effortless IXUS style

Classic IXUS design
The IXUS 105 combines pure IXUS style with fun, effortless operation. It comes in a choice of four attractive colours.*

12.1 Megapixels
A resolution of 12.1 MP lets you make poster-size prints, or creatively crop images to perfection.

28mm wide-angle 4.0x zoom lens
A wide 28mm lens is perfect for capturing landscapes or group shots, while a 4.0x optical zoom lets you get closer to your subject. Canons optical Image Stabilizer delivers blur-free results throughout the zoom range.

6.8 cm (2.7) PureColor II LCD
For detailed image review, easy framing and effortless menu navigation, the IXUS 105 features a 6.8 cm (2.7) PureColor II LCD. A wide viewing angle makes it easy to share images with friends as well as frame shots in bright sunlight.

Effortless Shooting
Smart Auto mode uses Scene Detection Technology to determine the shooting scene from subject brightness, contrast, distance and overall hue. The camera then selects the appropriate scene from a possible 18, and applies optimum settings leaving the user free to simply point and shoot. Smart Flash Exposure controls flash power and usage, helping to avoid problems like dark backgrounds and face shadows, and producing natural results in a variety of conditions

Face Detection Technology
Face Detection technology detects up to 35 faces in a scene and adjusts focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance for optimal results with natural-looking skin tones. FaceSelf-Timer makes group photos easy, taking a shot after an extra face enters the frame. Auto Red-Eye Correction eliminates red-eye during shooting or playback.

Motion Detection Technology
Motion Detection Technology detects movement in the shooting scene and camera shake. The optimal ISO level is then automatically set, to minimise blur and maximise image quality.

i-Contrast offers improved contrast and greater detail in tricky lighting conditions.

The DIGIC 4 processor delivers richly detailed, clean images, even when shooting at high ISO speeds. DIGIC 4 also drives fast and responsive camera operation.

Shooting modes
15 shooting modes are available, including Low Light, for great shots in darker conditions.

VGA movies
Supplement your still images with fun 30fps VGA movie clips. A YouTube Upload function, included in the software package, lets you share videos online simply by connecting to a computer.
