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.
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).
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.
