The first in the line to offer both a 10x optical zoom and 1080p video recording abilities, Canon claim it is the slimmest camera of its kind and their most advanced IXUS model thus far.

Elsewhere are a host of auto-settings, including Smart Auto and Best Image Selection, and novelty modes like a Fish-eye lens effect and miniature modes.
