IXUS 100 IS12.1 Megapixel Camera Digital IXUS 100 IS is the most compact in the family of Digital IXUS.

The camera has Smart Auto mode with scene recognition technology developed by Canon to create unsurpassed pictures without unnecessary effort.

Digital IXUS 100 IS is able to record HD-video clips (1280 x 720, 30 frames per second) and is equipped with an HDMI output.

Digital IXUS 100 IS replaces the model in the lineupDigital IXUS 85 IS. Its stainless steel casing has a thickness of only 18.4 mm! You can choose a silver, black, golden or red version - the camera will look great in any, even the most solemn atmosphere. The 3x optical zoom provides excellent framing, and Canon's optical image stabilizer allows you to forget about blurry pictures forever.

Created for stunning shots

With a high resolution of 12.1 megapixels, you can print huge A2 + photos and cut out snapshots without losing detail. CPU Canon DIGIC 4 provides the highest speed cameras that can create rich, clear images with a minimum of noise and excellent color reproduction.

Beautiful and smart

This model has a mode Smart Auto - it is designed to receiveexcellent results with little effort. In this mode, Canon's scene recognition technology is used, which analyzes the frame space, taking into account the brightness, the contrast of the subject, the focusing distance and the overall background. After that, the camera automatically selects the optimal mode from 18 possible options, which guarantees the use of the correct settings for any scene.

Through the use of a processor DIGIC 4 Intel's intelligent technologies have become even more effective. Improved motion detection technology allows you to shoot moving objects without blurring the image. i-Contrast increases the brightness of dark areas without damagefor areas with correct exposure. Face recognition technology can distinguish between multiple faces in a frame and adjust settings to obtain the best result.

The Digital IXUS 100 IS implements a new function - the detection of blinking: people's photos will no longer be closed at the wrong time. Option FaceSelf-Timer simplifies group shooting and creationself-portraits: the shutter goes down only after the user returns to the frame. For automatic correction of "red eyes" a special function is used, which allows to eliminate the undesirable effect from the flash and immediately during the shooting, and after its termination.

In addition, this model uses a new, improved interface - now it's even easier and more convenient to work with the camera.

Videos and more

Despite its small size, the Digital IXUS 100 IS is capable of recording high-definition movies (1280 x 720) - via the output HDMI they can be viewed on any HDTV display.

The camera is equipped with a 2.5-inch LCD display PureColor LCD II, which allows you to build a frame and view images with high brightness and detail. As an alternative, you can use an optical viewfinder when shooting.

Description of technologies


Image processing processor Canon DIGIC 4controls all key camera functions for maximum efficiency. Advanced image processing algorithms provide the transfer of the smallest details and hues, as well as an accurate white balance. The results of high data processing speed - an exceptional sensation of the camera, fast autofocusing and a long duration of continuous shooting.

The DIGIC 4 processor provides improved performancenoise reduction technology, i-Contrast, face detection with AF correction, auto exposure, exposure lock and white balance adjustment, and new scene recognition technology.

Scene Recognition Technology

In Smart Auto mode, recognition technologyThe scene, developed by Canon, analyzes the space of the frame, taking into account the brightness, the contrast of the subject, the focusing distance and the overall background. After that, for each scene, the optimal settings of 18 possible options are automatically selected.

A colored icon appears on the LCD,denoting the type of the recognized scene and lighting conditions. In Easy mode, this icon is not displayed; Thus, the Easy mode remains as simple as possible and there is nothing to distract the user.

Thanks to the Smart Auto mode, the user canbe sure that the camera will automatically select all the necessary settings to ensure the optimal result - even when shooting at night, photographing moving or maximum approximate objects, scenes with back lighting, sunsets. Smart Auto mode increases the dynamic range for brightly lit scenes to suppress unwanted light glare, and reduces it for low-contrast objects. In addition, when you shoot the sky, the saturation of the blue color is automatically adjusted.

Face Detection with AF, AE, Lock Exposure and White Balance, Blink Detection, Face Select and FaceSelf-Timer

The first function automatically recognizes facespeople in the frame, then adjusts the focus, exposure, flash and white balance to achieve the optimum result. The technology is able to highlight the faces that want to capture the photographer, and if the photo is group, the 9-point AiAF intelligent autofocus is activated. Thanks to the advantages of DIGIC 4, now the system can even more quickly and accurately determine faces at an angle or profile.

The function of blink detection is instantaneouswarns the user about closed eyes on the picture (for example, if someone blinks). Immediately after shooting, a warning icon appears on the display, so you can immediately resample the picture. The FaceSelf-Timer function makes it easy to create group photos: the shutter automatically descends after a new face appears in the frame.


The Canon i-Contrast function can be used as ain the shooting mode, and in the playback mode. It analyzes exposure, dynamic range and other characteristics, and then increases the degree of detail in dark areas without compromising the areas with proper exposure. The DIGIC 4 noise reduction function guarantees a minimum noise level in the corrected zones.

Optical Image Stabilizer

The three-stage stabilization system allowsimprove the quality of photos in places with poor lighting and when shooting in telephoto mode, when the vibrations become more significant. Miniature gyroscopic sensors detect camera shift caused by hand trembling.

These signals (4000 per second) are processedan image stabilizer chip that distinguishes vibrations caused by hand trembling from deliberate movement of the camera. They are then transferred to the image stabilizer block, which appropriately shifts the lens elements to correct the light rays and eliminate unwanted effects caused by shaking.

To improve accuracy and sensitivityMovable elements of the lens are supported by miniature ceramic spheres. In addition to reducing vibrations, the use of ceramic spheres avoids such problems typical for metallic elements as increased thermal conductivity and magnetic properties.

Motion Detection Technology

In Smart Auto mode, motion detection technology uses several methods to determine the movement of both the camera and the subject.

  • Change brightness - determined using the function of auto exposure;

  • Changing the image in the frame - determined by the shift of pixels;

  • Movement of the face - is determined by the technology of face recognition;

  • Camera shake - determined by the image stabilization system.

After that, the automatic settingISO sensitivity and shutter speed, which allows you to minimize blurring of the image and receive photos of the highest quality. The DIGIC 4 processor provides new benefits of motion recognition technology. When faces are detected, the shutter speed varies depending on the speed of their movement. The degree of camera shake is also taken into account.
