The culmination of Canon optics technologies, the slim, stylish Canon IXY 50S is the first model in the IXY series to feature a 10x optical zoom lens. The camera’s newly developed light-folding retractable-prism lens barrel and advanced mounting technology make possible high-image-quality performance and the achievement of the world’s thinnest 10x optical zoom lens camera with a body depth measuring only 22.3 mm.
Featuring the HS System, which combines a 10.0-megapixel high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and Canon’s high-performance DIGIC 4 image processor, the Canon IXY 50S is capable of capturing beautiful images with reduced noise even in low-light conditions. The model enables users to take clear, blur-free photos that capture the moment, even when shooting night scenes or in indoor settings, without the need to use a flash or tripod.
