Ideal for parties, special occasions or summer holidays, the Canon IXUS 230HS camera features a precision 28mm 8x optical zoom lens, and at just 22.1mm thick, is the world’s slimmest digital camera of its type. It’s also among the first Canon cameras to include the new Intelligent IS system, making it easy to capture richly-detailed and shake-free stills, or steady Full HD (1080p) video clips. A large, premium-quality 7.5cm (3.0”) PureColor LCD II G display is perfect for image framing and playback, with a 460k-dot resolution that offers fine detail, high contrast and excellent colour reproduction.

Fusing leading design with outstanding performance, the Canon IXUS 230 HS digital camera is powered by Canon’s HS System - a unique, optimised combination of a 12.1 Megapixel back-illuminated CMOS image sensor and powerful DIGIC 4 image processing. Providing superior photo clarity, colour and detail, the HS System from Canon empowers users to shoot low-noise photos in low light conditions without the need for a tripod, or to capture the true ambience of a scene by shooting without using the flash.
