Canon re-energises its Digital IXUS compact camera range with a new model: the Canon Digital IXUS 870 IS, which replace the Canon Digital IXUS 860 IS. The 10 Megapixel Digital IXUS 870 IS features a 4.0x wide-angle (28mm) optical zoom, a high-resolution 3.0” PureColor LCD II, and comes finished in gold or silver. The new IXUS 870 IS camera uses Canon’s new DIGIC 4 image processor, for fast performance and richly detailed, clean images in a huge number of shooting situations. The Canon Digital IXUS 870 IS features a wide-angle (28mm) 4x optical zoom, ideal for large group shots, atmospheric interiors or architecture. The Canon IXUS 870 IS also features Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer technology, for blur-free shots throughout the zoom range and in low-light conditions.

Canon IXUS 870 IS Face Detection
The Canon 870IS features Canon’s new DIGIC 4 image processor. As well as ensuring ultra-fast operation and superb, low-noise images, DIGIC 4 drives several intelligent technologies that make great photos easier than ever. People shots benefit from improved Face Detection Technology, which even detects faces positioned at an angle to the camera, or in profile. Face Select & Track tracks a specific subject even more accurately, while a new FaceSelf-timer function - which automatically triggers the shutter shortly after a new face enters the frame - makes group shots and self-portraits easy.

Canon Motion Detection technology
Canon’s improved Motion Detection Technology delivers fantastic, sharp results by registering camera and subject movement, then automatically adjusting ISO to prevent image blur. Blur is further guarded against by new Servo AF, which continuously adjusts focus on subjects moving towards or away from the camera. DIGIC 4 also powers Canon’s new i-Contrast feature, which brings out great, natural-looking detail in dark areas of pictures - without blowing out lighter areas.

The Canon IXUS 870 IS offers smooth, 30fps VGA video shooting. Superior compression technology allows the Digital IXUS 870 IS to store up to 40% more footage to a memory card than its predecessor - with no reduction in video quality. “The Canon IXUS 870 IS digital camera offers a perfect blend of technical innovation and classic IXUS design,” commented Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. ”This new Canon digital camera is equally striking inside and out.”
