Canon has announced that the latest and most advanced touch screen IXUS is now available in South Africa – the new IXUS 210. Available in black, silver and pink, the Canon IXUS 210 offers a sculpted metal exterior, a 14.1 Megapixel image sensor and 24mm genuine Canon lens for premium imaging performance to match its iconic IXUS styling. A newly-developed touch user interface coupled with on-screen Hints and Tips, makes capturing, browsing and sharing images easier than ever before.
The Canon’s IXUS 210 IS Touch shares many features with its predecessor, the Ixus 200 IS Touch, but is significantly cheaper. The sensor size remains the same as its predecessor but resolution is increased from 12.1 to 14.1 megapixels. The LCD touch screen is also larger; with a 3.5-inch diagonal instead of 3-inch and its resolution is 461,000 dots, up from 230,000 dots.
The Canon IXUS 210 is the most advanced touch screen IXUS to date. By using large and easy-to-press on-screen icons while shooting, users can swiftly access commonly-used camera functions, while a simple-to-navigate touch menu system aids swift access to other camera settings. The touch screen has required some camera settings to be changed, but the new model retains the small size and light weight of its predecessor. The front panel has the standard Ixus styling, with a brushed metal face plate and shiny stainless steel ring surrounding the lens. A small LED AF-Assist lamp is recessed into the upper right edge of this ring. Above it is a slim built-in flash.
Unlike previous models, the 210 IS Touch is one of the first Canon digicams to support the new Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) card format, which was unveiled roughly a year ago. These new cards offer faster data transfer speeds and higher capacities (up to 2TB promised), making them ideal for video recordings.
