- Europe, Asia, Oceania
The Canon IXY DIGITAL 820 IS succeeds the 810 IS, which was launched in June 2007 and was well received for its high optical-zoom ratio and image-stabilizing technology. The 820 IS features increased optical-zoom magnification, distinguishing the camera as the first IXY DIGITAL model to be equipped with a 5x zoom lens, along with improved image-stabilization technology that delivers an even higher level of precision accuracy, providing image stabilization equivalent to approximately four shutter-speed stops.*
Incorporating a 10.0-megapixel CCD sensor, the IXY 820 IS allows users to enjoy exceptionally high-resolution photos. The camera delivers improved ease of use through a 2.5-inch “Clear Live LCD II” monitor that realizes high visibility and a Controller Wheel supporting convenient operation.
The IXY DIGITAL 820 IS features a refined, sophisticated design that evokes the impression of a body enveloped in an elegant gown. The form of the camera not only conveys a feeling of style, but also fits comfortably in the hands.
