Canon Seeks to Delight You with 23 New Products


Ixus 1100 HS & 230 HS

Christmas Comes Early with Canon

At an event that took place yesterday at the Zirca club (on The Cannery, Clarke Quay), Canon Singapore officially launched its latest digital cameras and printers. A total of 23 products were showcased, including two new PowerShot cameras, two new Ixus cameras, seven Pixma inkjet printers, and ten Imageclass laser printers.

Here's Mr. Andrew Koh, Senior Director and General Manager for Singapore Operations, addressing the guests. 

Ixus 1100 HS & 230 HS

Canon touts the Ixus 1100 HS and 230 HS as the world's slimmest 12x and 8x optical zoom compact cameras.

If you’re a fan of the Ixus family, then you'll be pleased to know that Canon will be adding two new models: the Ixus 1100 HS and the Ixus 230 HS. Both models feature Canon’s high-sensitivity sensor (HS) system which allows for low-noise images when you need to take pictures in less-than-ideal lighting conditions. Both models also sport the Intelligent IS system. Providing seven types of image stabilization, Intelligent IS is able to automatically identify and adjust the optical image stabilizer to reduce image blur due to camera shake. Different types of scenarios are catered for: Hybrid IS will correct for angular shake (typically during close-up photography), while Powered IS works to counter shake when using the telephoto zoom (especially during video shooting).

The 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and Digic 4-equipped Ixus 1100 HS has a 28mm 12x optical zoom lens and a 4-stop optical image stabilizer. It also sports Touch AF and Touch Shutter functions.

The Ixus 230 HS is also fitted with a 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and the Digic 4 processor. It has a 28mm 8x optical zoom lens. Images can be captured at a rate of 3.5 shots per second.

In Singapore, the Ixus 1100 HS comes in red and black. You can find it now at all authorized Canon dealers for S$529.

The 22.1mm slim Ixus 230 HS comes in six colors: black, purple, blue, silver, pink, and lime green. It'd be in stores at the end of October. The price is yet to be announced.
