Canon delivers performance and style with the stunning new IXUS 300 HS

Canon Middle East today bolsters its luxury IXUS range with the launch of the incredible new IXUS 300 HS – a stylish and powerful premium compact digital camera capable of capturing outstanding stills and High Definition (HD) video. Available in blasted steel silver, matt black or glossy white finishes, the new model offers a supercharged combination of speed, usability and creative control – making it perfect for those who wish to make a statement with the technology they own.

The IXUS 300 HS is the first model to feature Canon’s new HS System, combining a high-sensitivity 10.0 Megapixel CMOS sensor with fast DIGIC 4 processing for enhanced low light performance and high-speed shooting. A bright, f/2.0 wide-angle lens provides the ability to use faster shutter speeds and make subjects stand out by creatively blurring the background, while a range of manual settings offer a new level of artistic flexibility to IXUS users who wish to explore, and develop, their photographic skills.

Make a style statement – take shots that impress
Crafted to reflect the sculpted curves of a supercar and finished in blasted steel silver, matt black or glossy white, the IXUS 300 HS makes a bold style statement – and underneath the premium design, it also offers a supercharged combination of high-performance features that let you take great shots, wherever you are.

Take control, get creative
As well as its alluring looks, the IXUS 300 HS boasts an advanced blend of manual and automatic features that help you deliver high-impact images, whatever your level of expertise. The IXUS 300 HS is Canon’s first IXUS to feature the new HS System, letting you take spectacular shots in low-light or at high-speed at the touch of a button. Smart Auto with Scene Detection Technology helps you capture spot-on shots in all conditions by automatically selecting the optimum settings from 22 variables. And if you fancy flexing your creative muscles, you can put yourself in the driving seat and manually control aperture and shutter speed to get the results you want.

Capture high quality action with HD movie shooting
As well as taking incredible images, the IXUS 300 HS also offers HD movie recording with high quality stereo sound. Whether you’re shooting sporting events or travel adventures, the optical Image Stabilizer reduces the effects of camera shake to deliver super sharp footage on the move.
