IXUS: Portability and Performance at Your Fingertips
The new IXUS cameras are equipped with the Canon DIGIC 4+ image processor, 20- megapixel sensor and a zoom range of up to 12x in the IXUS 285 HS.

Its compact size and lightweight design at less than 150g makes it suitable for everyday use.
User-friendly Features for all consumers
Users looking to buy their first camera will find the settings on the new IXUS cameras straightforward, which often only require a simple push of a button. This convenience extends to the new Auto Zoom feature, which automatically adjusts image framing according to the number of subjects with just a push of a designated knob. This feature makes framing easy even for those who are not used to cameras.
Uploading and sharing of photos or videos on social media platforms is also easy with the built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity feature on the IXUS 285 HS, IXUS 180, PowerShot SX420 IS and PowerShot SX540 HS models. The IXUS 175 is FlashAir™ and Eye-Fi support compatible, enabling users to share images and videos to their smart phones or mobile devices while staying connected to social media platforms on the go.
