The IXY DIGITAL 95 IS succeeds the IXY DIGITAL 90 released in March 2007, which was well received for its large LCD viewing monitor. The new 95 IS is equipped with a 3x optical zoom lens newly incorporating an optical image stabilizer, and a CCD sensor offering a higher 10.0-megapixel resolution. The model’s 3.0-inch monitor features the more advanced Clear Live LCD II for greater visibility. Additionally, replacing the Touch Wheel employed by its predecessor, the 95 IS includes a Controller Wheel for improved operational ease. The innovative design of the IXY DIGITAL 95 IS features a square body shape with large beveled edges along the top and bottom portions of the front cover panel. Additionally, the flat “sheet-key” operation panel contributes to the camera’s progressive look and feel.

*1 This digital camera supports Exif 2.2 (also called “Exif Print”). Exif Print is a standard for enhancing the communication between digital cameras and printers. By connecting to an Exif Print-compliant printer, the camera’s image data at the time of shooting is used and optimized, yielding extremely high quality prints.
