Steely resolve
The ultimate in stylish, high performance digital photography, the Digital IXUS 500 delivers quality prints up to A3 size. With a super hard Cerabrite finish, this flagship of the Digital IXUS range brings together uncompromising build quality and an abundance of integrated technologies in a triumph of miniaturisation.

The IXUS eye
A 3x optical zoom culminates 60 years of Canon optical heritage to deliver crisp, corner-to-corner clarity. A 3x optical zoom (12.3x combined) offers a wide angle of coverage, while the 9-point AiAF ensures accurate focusing, even with off-centre subjects.

Outstanding performance
High performance demands plenty of processing power – which is why the Digital IXUS 500 incorporates Canon's dedicated DIGIC processor. DIGIC delivers superb image quality at high speed with less drain on the battery for extended performance.

Photographer's assistant
iSAPS is a hidden photographer's assistant, instantly analysing the scene and making adjustments even before the shutter release is pressed. iSAPS optimises exposure, white balance and auto-focus settings in every shooting situation for consistently brilliant results.

Advanced features
An Intelligent Orientation Sensor automatically rotates images before playback. Movie mode allows up to 3-minute movie clips (30 seconds in VGA mode) with sound recording, playback and 'in-camera' editing. Auto mode is perfect for 'point and shoot' situations, while Manual mode puts you in creative control.

Easy printing
The camera prints directly to all PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible printers. Create beautiful, instant photo prints by connecting camera to printer and pushing the Print/Share button, which also speeds up online sharing to any Windows PC. When used with a Canon Compact Photo Printer, you can print ID photos, or a series of movie clip frames.

Online sharing
With Canon's ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Macintosh) you can arrange albums, crop photographs and adjust image contrast and brightness. Your new IXUS also comes with membership to CANON iMAGE GATEWAY, your personal online gallery with 100MB free space for sharing albums with family and friends. CANON iMAGE GATEWAY also allows you to personalise the camera with start-up image and sound-effect downloads.
