Manufacturer's Description

10 Megapixels. 10x optical Zoom. 10 years of premium performance.

It’s been 10 years since the stylish, high-performance Canon IXUS range was launched and to celebrate this milestone, Canon has developed its most advanced IXUS model yet. The IXUS 1000 HS is the first IXUS model to offer an incredibly compact 10x optical zoom lens and the ability to capture 1080p Full HD movies with stereo sound – making it the slimmest super zoom camera of its kind anywhere in the world.

Image with and without the HS System

Capture the scene exactly as you see it with the Canon HS System

The IXUS 1000 HS features the powerful Canon HS System, which combines a 10 megapixel high sensitivity CMOS sensor with Canon’s advanced DIGIC 4 processor. The system allows for excellent high image quality, especially in low light conditions, plus high speed stills and movie shooting. The increased sensitivity of the HS System allows it to capture a wider dynamic range, reducing highlight blowout and loss of detail in shadows. It all adds up to a remarkable quality of image in all light conditions – enabling you to preserve your memories in perfect detail, whether in stills or video.

Low light

The Canon HS System truly excels in low light conditions. Capturing well exposed subjects inside, against dark backgrounds or outside in low light can be difficult. The flash range is not sufficient to light up the background but turning it off can cause blurring from the instability of handheld shooting. With the Canon HS System, background illumination is improved, dark areas are reduced, and camera shake is controlled – maintaining complete image clarity and eliminating blur.

Wider ISO range

The HS System allows for significant noise reduction at all ISO levels while maintaining accurate colours and crisp detail. The camera also supports a maximum ISO speed of 3200 at full resolution, while an extended maximum speed of ISO 6400 is available at 2.5MP resolution, allowing the camera to capture the natural ambience of dimly-lit environments without the flash.

High Speed Burst continuously shoots up to 8.8 shots per second

High Speed Burst

The HS System also offers the capability to record high-speed, non-stop action in High Speed Burst mode. Taking up to 3.7 shots per second at full 10.0MP resolution or 8.8 shots per second at 2.5MP resolution, the camera allows you to capture fast-moving subjects, so whether you’re shooting sports events or life in motion you will never miss a moment’s action.

Super Slow Motion Movie

This mode captures movies at a staggering 240 frames per second and plays them back at normal speed for a spectacular slow motion effect. The free software included with the camera supports multi-speed playback, allowing the footage to be viewed both at real or slow motion speed, so you won’t miss a moment. Which makes it the perfect tool for analysing your back hand or improving your golf swing. Just take a look at the video at the top of the page to see this feature in action.

Compact but powerful zoom

A powerful 10x zoom capability in a camera as compact as the IXUS 1000 HS makes it the slimmest, super-zoom camera of its kind. The zoom range is complemented perfectly with a Canon genuine lens and advanced Image Stabilizer technology, which means significantly reduced blur and ultra-sharp images, even in low light conditions and when the zoom is extended. So you can capture truly unique scenes in any light condition and detailed close-ups, even from afar.

Timeless style and advanced functionality in one slimline compact

As well as demonstrating professional quality, the IXUS 1000 HS showcases the superior style qualities the series is renowned for. This elegant compact features an ultra slim stainless steel body with silver, brown or pink variations in a glossy metallic finish - so you can select the colour which best suits you. It also boasts a wide 7.6cm (3.0") PureColor II G LCD display with enhanced visibility, and a tempered glass outer layer to provide a high contrast, wide viewing angle - ideal for shooting large groups from trickier angles. So whether you’re shooting across a red carpet or up from your seat at an evening dinner, you’re guaranteed beautiful results from Canon’s most stylish compact yet.

Capture beautiful evening stills in hand-held night scene mode

Another feature of the HS System, Hand-held Night Scene mode, makes it possible to capture beautiful night shots without the need for a tripod. The camera’s optical Image Stabilizer, combined with a fast shutter speed, smoothly combats the difficulties of night shooting such as image blur, high noise levels and inaccurate exposure. These advanced features allow several high speed shots to be taken in succession, and then combined to produce one sharp and optimally-exposed picture.

Record fast-paced, full High Definition movies with stereo sound

For moments that are better caught on video, the IXUS 1000 HS offers advanced video performance with the capability to record full HD movies at 1080p. 10x optical zoom is available during shooting, and stereo sound guarantees clear, CD-quality audio every time.

The lens’ quiet motor allows you to zoom during recording with minimum audio interference, while the intelligent Dynamic Image Stabilizer is designed to reduce the effects of camera shake if you need to move with your scene. Using the various shooting modes in movie can add an interesting dynamic to your footage. In Smart Auto mode, the camera automatically analyses conditions and selects the optimal settings from 28 different situations. And Miniature Mode adds a completely new dimension to video – resulting in dramatic and compelling miniature-style, timelapse videos.

A world of advantages with Canon technology

Experience intelligent technology with DIGIC 4

The fast processing capability of the DIGIC 4 processor facilitates a range of technologies which enhance the quality and creativity of your images. It enables intelligent evolved Face and Object Detection Technology, which finds and tracks moving subjects until you're ready to shoot, adjusting the camera settings for optimal results. Faces will have natural-looking skin tones and additional Blink Detection lets you avoid the disappointment of mis-timed people shots by displaying a 3 second warning if a person in the frame has their eyes closed. Red-Eye Correction is an integral feature to ensure flawless photos as well as Canon’s i-Contrast feature, which offers improved contrast and greater detail in tricky lighting conditions.

Smart Auto technology is the most comprehensive in the market and features Scene Detection Technology which provides the best results in all conditions, intelligently detecting the scene and selecting the optimum settings from 28 variables, including six newly-developed scenes.

Smart Flash

Smart Flash Exposure controls flash levels according to shooting conditions, providing the right amount of flash to ensure perfectly exposed shots in all situations.

New scene modes allow you to easily expand your photographic results. These include Miniature effect, which reproduces the effect of a very narrow depth of field transforming normal landscapes into miniature look-alikes; and Fish Eye, which reproduces the effect of a fish eye lens in three different levels of intensity.

Capturing self-portraits has never been easier with Smart Shutter, which utilizes Face Detection Technology, allowing you to trigger the shutter using a smile or a wink of the eye. With Face Self-Timer, you can set the camera to shoot automatically after detecting a new face in the frame, meaning nobody’s left behind in group shots. And if you’re at a more advanced level and require additional levels of creative control, the IXUS 1000 HS also offers control over shutter speed or aperture settings in Tv and Av modes respectively.

Store and share your masterpieces with ease

Because Canon understands that taking photos is only half the fun, it supports both SDXC and Eye-Fi memory cards. With storage of up to 2000 gigabytes, the SDXC card allows you to snap away without worrying about running out of memory, and the Eye-Fi model lets you transfer pictures and videos online, directly from your camera, via it’s own Wi-Fi transmitter. You can also use the mini HDMI cable to play your HD videos on widescreen TV or send them wirelessly to your own PC.

Upload to YouTube

For fast and easy uploading of your clips to sharing websites like YouTube, Easy Web Upload software is included free in the box. This will display your movie clips and can also store your YouTube log in details – so you can simply select your clip and upload with one click.
