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.

7.1 Megapixels
A 7.1 Megapixel CCD sensor captures every scene with enough fine detail for large photo quality prints.

Wide-angle lens with optical IS
A 28mm (equivalent) wide-angle lens with 3.8x zoom takes in more of every scene. Canon's optical Image Stabilizer (IS) technology counteracts camera shake for steady shots at slower shutter speeds and full zoom.

IXUS Styling
Sleek, smart and elegant, the Digital IXUS 850 IS is finished in an all-metal body with the rounded contours of the IXUS 'Perpetual Curve' design.

DIGIC III Processor
Canon's best of breed DIGIC III processor provides lightning quick responses, superb image quality and advanced noise reduction for sharper, clearer images. iSAPS technology analyses each scene to optimise key camera settings even before a shot is taken.

Face Detection AF/AE
Face Detection AF/AE ensures superb people shots by automatically detecting the subjects in the frame and setting the optimum focus and exposure. My Category tags each image based on face detection and shooting mode for easy image navigation, printing, deleting and much more.

Large LCD
The high resolution 2.5" LCD screen features a wide viewing angle for easy group viewing. The Image Inspection Tool enables instant checks for image sharpness.

Shooting modes
Choose from 17 shooting modes including Special Scene modes to help with tricky lighting conditions, such as Night Snapshot and Snow. Shoot smooth VGA (30fps) and QVGA (60fps) video with Movie mode.

My Colors
Apply special in-camera colour effects both during and after shooting. Lighten skin tones in portraits, or add extra vibrancy to blue skies for stunning, punchy landscapes.

Flash-free low light shooting
A low-noise ISO 1600 setting combines with optical IS to enable flash-free shooting indoors and at night. High ISO Auto mode automatically sets an optimal high ISO setting to allow for faster shutter speeds, further reducing the effects of camera shake.

Safety Zoom
Safety Zoom takes advantage of the camera's large resolution to offer extra zoom magnification without affecting image quality. Capture images at up to 7.3x zoom with enough detail for lab-quality postcard (10 x 15cm) prints. Capture VGA quality stills for TV playback at 15x zoom.

Direct Printing
Connect to any PictBridge compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button for instant photolab quality prints.

Picture quality
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.
7.1 MP
Image sensor size*
Sensor type*
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Image stabilizer*
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
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.
Digital zoom*
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
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′).
4.6 - 17.3 mm
Light exposure
ISO sensitivity*
A measure of a photographic film's sensitivity to light.
80, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, Auto

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.
