- IXUS 130 – the slimmest IXUS model to date, measuring just 17.8mm at its thickest point.
Commenting at the launch, Jonothan Sultan, Marketing Manager, Canon Consumer Imaging, said,
“Digital photography remains as popular as ever. Every year, more and more individuals are looking to record key life events with unrivalled quality or to test and explore their creativity. Canon is a firm believer in the power of image and we produce products which match people’s imagination to bring their ideas to life.”
“Our new products are packed with features to make it easier than ever to capture the perfect image and to fuel our customers’ creativity. For example, the EOS 550D redefines the entry level DSLR category, putting technologies and features previously the preserve of the professional into the hands of the consumer. It doesn’t stop there either with features like the PowerShot SX210 IS’s smart shutter technology which lets the camera know when your ready for your picture to be taken by smiling,” Brady added.
The EOS 550D redefines the boundaries of Canon’s consumer DSLR range, incorporating technologies and features more commonly found in semi-professional DSLRs into the compact, lightweight body favoured by consumers. With a newly-developed 18 Megapixel (MP) APS-C CMOS sensor, coupled with Canon’s advanced DIGIC 4 image processor and the ability to shoot Full HD movies, photography enthusiasts are empowered to explore new levels of creativity.
