Like all IXUS models, the IXUS 105 camera is also incredibly easy to operate, making it simple for users to capture excellent pictures.|
12.1 megapixel Canon IXUS 105 camera
The Canon IXUS 105 boasts classic IXUS styling, combining a slim and chic body with a range of impressive functions for easy, everyday shooting. Available in silver, brown, pink and aqua, the Canon IXUS 105 offers a choice of classic and pastel colours to project a stylish and personal feel. A bright, 6.8cm (2.7”) PureColor LCD II screen is also great for framing and viewing shots. 12.1 Megapixels provide high resolution pictures bursting with colour and detail. Low Light mode also makes it easy for all users to take great photos in challenging, dimly-lit conditions. The Canon IXUS 105 is also able to capture VGA movies at 30fps with sound, offering users the capacity to go beyond stills and record memories in video as well.
Canon IXUS 105 features a wide angle lens
Designed and manufactured to premium standards, the Canon IXUS 105 camera features genuine Canon 28mm wide-angle 4x zoom lenses - perfect for group photos and landscapes at the widest setting, and great for portraits or shooting distant subjects using the zoom. Canon’s renowned optical Image Stabilizer system also counters camera shake, helping to prevent image blur, particularly when shooting at full zoom or in low light conditions.
Canon Digital IXUS 105 camera technologies
Smart Auto with Scene Detection Technology helps users take great photos by automatically detecting the shooting scene, giving users the freedom to simply concentrate on taking the picture. Detecting 18 different scenes for the IXUS 105, Smart Auto is able to determine a wide range of shooting conditions - such as Portrait, Landscape or Macro - before applying the optimum settings required to capture the perfect shot. i-Contrast analyses images to deliver perfect exposure, adding light and detail to dark sections of images while reducing blow out in brighter areas. Smart Flash Exposure intelligently adjusts the flash to suit both the subject and shooting conditions - in daylight, for example, Smart Flash Exposure will detect and eliminate face shadows caused by bright sunlight by engaging the flash. Motion Detection Technology combats blur by monitoring camera shake, brightness and subject movement, and automatically sets the shutter speed and ISO level to deliver blur-free results.
Canon IXUS 105 features Face detection technology
Face Detection Technology provides perfect people shots with the minimum of effort. Up to 35 faces can be identified at once, with the camera ensuring subjects are well exposed and in focus. Auto Red-Eye correction also detects and removes any red-eye immediately after a picture is taken. FaceSelf-Timer makes large group shots and self portraits simple by using Face Detection Technology to activate the shutter. Instead of the user setting a timer and rushing into position, FaceSelf-Timer cleverly monitors the scene and waits for an additional face to appear before taking the photo two seconds later. Multiple shots can also be taken to ensure the desired shot is captured, allowing users to get the picture they want every time. The Canon IXUS 105 offers the easy operation synonymous with the IXUS range. A bright, clear user interface also makes menu navigation effortless, helping to deliver the best images in the simplest way possible.
Canon IXUS 105 supports SDXC memory cards
The Canon IXUS 105 digital camera features an integrated YouTube upload function in the supplied CameraWindow software application, providing the capacity to log-in and upload video directly from the camera to the Internet via a computer. The IXUS 105 is also compatible with new SDXC memory cards. Offering storage capacity of up to 2TB, SDXC memory allows users to shoot huge volumes of images without having to change cards. SDHC memory cards are also supported up to 32GB, providing instant compatibility with the vast number of memory cards already available.

Owners of the new Canon IXUS 105 digital camera are entitled to free membership of Canon iMAGE Gateway, an online facility for sharing photos and video.
