Effortless IXUS style.

Classic IXUS design
The IXUS 105 combines pure IXUS style with fun, effortless operation. It comes in a choice of four attractive colours.

12.1 Megapixels
A resolution of 12.1 MP lets you make poster-size prints, or creatively crop images to perfection.

28mm wide-angle 4.0x zoom lens
A wide 28mm lens is perfect for capturing landscapes or group shots, while a 4.0x optical zoom lets you get closer to your subject. Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer delivers blur-free results throughout the zoom range.

6.8 cm (2.7”) PureColor II LCD
For detailed image review, easy framing and effortless menu navigation, the IXUS 105 features a 6.8 cm (2.7”) PureColor II LCD. A wide viewing angle makes it easy to share images with friends as well as frame shots in bright sunlight.

Effortless Shooting
Smart Auto mode uses Scene Detection Technology to determine the shooting scene from subject brightness, contrast, distance and overall hue. The camera then selects the appropriate scene from a possible 18, and applies optimum settings – leaving the user free to simply point and shoot. Smart Flash Exposure controls flash power and usage, helping to avoid problems like dark backgrounds and face shadows, and producing natural results in a variety of conditions

Face Detection Technology
Face Detection technology detects up to 35 faces in a scene and adjusts focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance – for optimal results with natural-looking skin tones. FaceSelf-Timer makes group photos easy, taking a shot after an extra face enters the frame. Auto Red-Eye Correction eliminates red-eye during shooting or playback.

Motion Detection Technology
Motion Detection Technology detects movement in the shooting scene and camera shake. The optimal ISO level is then automatically set, to minimise blur and maximise image quality.

i-Contrast offers improved contrast and greater detail in tricky lighting conditions.

The DIGIC 4 processor delivers richly detailed, clean images, even when shooting at high ISO speeds. DIGIC 4 also drives fast and responsive camera operation.

Shooting modes
15 shooting modes are available, including Low Light, for great shots in darker conditions.

VGA movies
Supplement your still images with fun 30fps VGA movie clips. A YouTube™ Upload function, included in the software package, lets you share videos online simply by connecting to a computer.

Picture quality
Camera type *
There are a number of common types of digital cameras: compact cameras, bridge cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Bridge cameras 'bridge the gap' between the low-end compact and high-end professional (SLR) cameras. Also MILCs populate this mid-segment by combining the larger sensors and interchangeable lenses of DSLRs with the live-preview viewing system of compact cameras.
Compact camera
Megapixel *
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
12.1 MP
Image sensor size *
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Maximum image resolution *
Resolution is the amount of detail held by an image. The higher the resolution, the better (sharper) the image. The maximum image resolution produces the best image.
4000 x 3000 pixels
Still image resolution(s) *
List of image resolutions that supported by device.
640 x 480,1600 x 1200,2592 x 1944,3264 x 2448,4000 x 2248,4000 x 3000
Image stabilizer *
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom *
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
5 - 20 mm
Lens structure (elements/groups)
The way in which a camera lens is constructed.

Light exposure
ISO sensitivity *
A measure of a photographic film's sensitivity to light.

Light exposure modes *
The different lengths of time for the exposure for a camera e.g. longer exposure for low light.
Light exposure correction *
± 2EV (1/3EV step)
Light metering *
Light metering mode refers to the way in which a device determines the exposure. Multi-pattern and evaluative metering: the camera measures the light intensity in several points in the scene. Centre-weighted metering: the meter concentrates between 60 to 80 percent of the sensitivity towards the central part of the viewfinder. Spot metering: the camera will only measure a very small area of the scene (between 1-5% of the viewfinder area).
Centre-weighted, Spot
Flash modes *
Different modes for a camera flash which are manually/automatically activated e.g. auto-flash mode, flash on with red eye reduction.
