Canon IXUS 1000 HS

If the mirror-less cameras can be considered the most significant advancement in the world of interchangeable cameras, one which changed the way professional imaging was conceived, then its analogue for the world of consumer cameras is the superzoom cameras. Often these cameras serve as a bridge between consumer level point and shoot cameras and the professional cameras. They come with some advanced features that one would notice in DSLRs plus the benefit of high zoom value, which is a feast for every consumerís heart. The one thing, however, that people have found themselves complaining about is the huge size and sheer weight of all such cameras and admittedly, many of them are as heavy as an entry level DSLR. In a situation like that, people would definitely accept the coming of an ultra thin superzoom camera, like the Canon IXUS 1000 HS. This camera comes with a resolution of 10mp and 10x optical zoom with optical image stabilization.

Design and Functioning

As has already been mentioned, the Canon IXUS 1000 HS claims to be the thinnest superzoom camera. Measuring 22mm at its thinnest side, it boasts of the same fluid and sleek design that almost all of Canon IXUS cameras have often been praised for. This camera is available in three colours of Copper Gold, Fuchsia Pink and Metallic Silver. The exceptionally compact 10x optical zoom lens showcases the pioneering optical expertise trusted by millions of Canon owners world-wide, ensuring the benefits of a high zoom lens are not lost for the sake of pocketability. The integrated HS System ensures excellent performance in low light, taking advantage of the 10.0MP high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 processor to provide premium image quality and much lower noise levels at all ISO speeds as compared to models not featuring the HS System. The camera also supports a maximum ISO speed of 3200 at full resolution, while an extended maximum speed of ISO 6400 is available at 2.5MP resolution, allowing the camera to capture the natural ambience of dimly-lit environments without the flash. A highly-effective optical Image Stabilizer designed with advanced lens-shift technology allows users to capture sharp images in darker conditions or when the zoom is extended, providing the perfect tool for consistently capturing clearly defined, blur-free images. This camera is compatible with SD/SDHC/SDXC cards as well as MMC and MMC+ cards.
