With a digital camera all the pictures you make are stored digitally, which means you can instantly view a picture after you have taken it and take as many pictures as you like, without having to buy new films all the time. It is easy to download the pictures from your camera to your computer, either at home or at the shop and edit them before printing. Once they are on your computer, you can easily share your pics with the rest of the world by putting them on-line, or e-mailing them to friends.

Canon Digital IXUS 50 5MP 1/2.5" CCD Silver:
The official marketing text of Canon Digital IXUS 50 5MP 1/2.5" CCD Silver as supplied by the manufacturer
The exquisitely finished all-metal 5.0 Megapixel Digital IXUS 50 conceals precision optics and cutting edge image processing technology - so your shots are as irresistible as the camera taking them.

Power and style
Key to the cutting edge miniaturisation of the Digital IXUS 50 is the ultra-high refractive index aspherical (UA) 3x optical zoom lens, which delivers outstanding optical performance and corner-to-corner clarity in an exceptionally compact form. It combines with the 5.0 Megapixel sensor to deliver superb images suited for photo quality prints to A3 size.

Big screen movies
Review and share images and movie clips on the large high-definition 2.0" LCD. Night Display mode automatically improves visibility when it is dark, while the user-controlled Quick-bright function lets you frame/review comfortably in low-light conditions. Record and playback extended 30 fps VGA movie clips with sound (up to 1GB files possible¹). Analyse fast action sequences by recording QVGA quality at 60 fps and watching in slow motion.

Groundbreaking technology
Integrating a Canon DIGIC II processor, the Digital IXUS 50 has power to burn. DIGIC II links all key camera functions, driving fast auto-focus, outstanding camera performance, quick start-up times and first-class image quality.
Like a hidden photographer's assistant, iSAPS uses DIGIC II's power to analyse the scene and optimise key camera settings even before the shutter release is pressed. 10 shooting modes including 6 scene modes combine with 9-point auto-focus system (AiAF) to deliver consistently brilliant results in every situation.

Get creative
Create exciting visual effects with My Colors by making favourite colours more vivid, swapping one colour with another, or making all but one area of an image monochrome.

Accessories
Capture snorkelling, skiing and surfing action with the optional 3m depth All Weather Case, and extend lighting options with the optional High Power Flash.

Photo fun
For full colour prints within seconds, simply connect the camera to any PictBridge compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button. It's that easy. With a Canon SELPHY CP series printer, you can even print handy ID photo prints and Movie prints.

Editing and sharing
Canon's ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Macintosh) help you arrange albums, crop photographs and adjust image contrast and brightness. Access to CANON iMAGE GATEWAY² gives you 100MB online space for your own personal gallery, for sharing with family and friends.

Picture quality
Megapixel *
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
5 MP
Image sensor size *
1/2.5"
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
CCD
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
3x
Digital zoom *
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
4x
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).

Light exposure modes *
The different lengths of time for the exposure for a camera e.g. longer exposure for low light.
Auto
Light metering *
Light metering mode refers to the way in which a device determines the exposure. Multi-pattern and evaluative metering: the camera measures the light intensity in several points in the scene. Centre-weighted metering: the meter concentrates between 60 to 80 percent of the sensitivity towards the central part of the viewfinder. Spot metering: the camera will only measure a very small area of the scene (between 1-5% of the viewfinder area).
Centre-weighted, Spot
Flash
Flash modes *
Different modes for a camera flash which are manually/automatically activated e.g. auto-flash mode, flash on with red eye reduction.

Viewfinder
Viewfinder type
A viewfinder is the window in the camera through which a photographer views the picture. Used for choosing, composing, and often focusing the image. There are two types: optical and digital. In an optical viewfinder, the photographer looks through a transparent window to frame and focus the image. The photographer is seeing the real image, through the window of the viewfinder. With a digital viewfinde, there is an LCD display built into a camera that gives a digital view of where the camera is pointing. It's used to compose and focus the image.
