Canon HS System

Improved shots in tricky lighting conditions with HS System

The IXUS 115 HS features the powerful Canon HS System, which allows for excellent high image quality, especially in low light conditions, plus high speed stills and movie shooting. Capturing well exposed subjects inside, against dark backgrounds or outside in low light can be difficult. The flash range is often not sufficient to light up the background but turning it off can cause blurring from the instability of hand-held 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.

Canon's i-Contrast feature

Meanwhile Canon's i-Contrast feature also offers improved contrast and greater detail in tricky lighting conditions. Available in either shooting or playback mode, i-Contrast analyses the exposure, dynamic range and other image characteristics of a shot then adaptively increases the contrast in dark areas to produce heightened detail in those regions. It does this without over exposing correctly exposed parts of the image, while the camera's noise reduction technology ensures minimal noise in the adjusted areas.

Get closer to the action with a 4x optical zoom

You can get up close and personal, even with faraway subjects with the IXUS 115 HS’s 4x optical zoom. Its versatility means you can really explore your creative options and it’s perfect for capturing the action whether you’re at a sporting event or at a concert. Meanwhile a large 3" PureColor II G LCD has toughened scratch resistant glass making HD recording, shooting and playback a breeze.

Canon's Dynamic Optical Image Stabilizer compensates for almost every kind of movement from the gentle murmurs of your breathing to the vibrations of a car ride, so your movies will always have a smooth, professional look. Easily switch from Standard Mode to Dynamic Range when you want to stabilise heavy hand shake on the move e.g. when walking, shooting from a moving car or even when shooting at maximum zoom.

Effortless shooting - superb results

When you're taking pictures, the only thing you want to think about is your subject so, the effortless IXUS 115 HS offers Smart Auto.

Advanced Scene Detection Technology gets the best from difficult shooting conditions. Click here for a larger image Smart Auto mode allows the camera to intelligently select the appropriate settings so you can concentrate on your subject. Advanced Scene Detection Technology automatically analyses shooting conditions – detecting people, distance, brightness, colour and movement information – then selects the perfect setting from 32 specially defined scenes. So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset or friends in the park you can be confident you're getting the perfect image. Smart Auto is also more than just scene detection. Moving subjects are also detected to ensure focus and exposure is always correct. For close-ups the camera automatically switches to Macro mode for sharp shots while Smart Flash Exposure optimises exposure and flash controls to ensure your subject is perfectly lit whilst dark and light areas are accurately reproduced.

High-speed shooting

The HS System also offers the capability to shoot at super high speeds which provides excellent benefits in a range of situations.

High-speed Burst

In High-speed burst mode the camera can take up to 3.7 shots per second at full 12.1 Megapixels resolution or 8.8 shots per second at 2.5 Megapixels 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 of the action.

Super Slow Motion Movie

Super Slow Motion Movie mode captures movies at a staggering 240 frames per second (fps) and plays them back at normal speed for a spectacular slow motion effect. It’s now possible to shoot VGA quality at 120fps in addition to QVGA at 240fps. The free software included with the camera supports multi-speed playback, allowing for your footage to be viewed both at real or slow motion speed, so you won’t miss a moment.

Handheld Night Scene

Handheld Night Scene Capture blur-free night scenes with the Handheld Night Scene mode. With this mode selected the camera takes consecutive high speed shots and combines them into one blur-free image.

Choice of shooting modes

With the IXUS 115 HS, you also have the option of selecting from a full range of shooting modes that you can count on for exact focus no matter where your subject is in the frame. Simply select the mode you want and let the camera take care of everything else, ensuring breathtaking, exhilarating pictures even when shooting conditions are tough.

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 lookalikes, Fisheye which reproduces the effect of a Fisheye lens in three different levels of intensity and Monochrome which uses different Colour Filters (e.g. sepia). There are also new photo effect modes: Super Vivid which adds vibrant colours to photos for a dramatic result, Poster which gives a retro feel to photos by creating a poster-like effect, Toy Camera that changes the tone of the shot (e.g. cool or warm), Low Light for when you want to capture atmospheric shots without a flash and Multi-Aspect shooting to choose whether your photograph is taken in a specific aspect ratio (4:5, 16:9. 1:1 etc.)

Capture everything with the Movie Digest feature

Unique to Canon cameras, every time the shutter is pushed the action 4 seconds before is recorded as a movie and collated into one complete highlights video every day. Each photograph you will have taken will have a special 4 second memory-jogging movie clip to accompany it.

Power efficient with quick recharge

The IXUS 115 HS runs off an intelligent rechargeable Li-Ion battery that will give you hours of shooting pleasure and is quick and easy to recharge.

Shoot with confidence

Easy Hints & Tips provides onscreen guidance so even beginners can operate the camera with confidence straight from the box. Menu explanations are always easy to understand and when settings are changed the relevant icon displays in an easy-to-see orange colour delivering a sophisticated and pleasant operating experience.

Fast, intelligent processing and superb image quality

Face Detection Technology
Face Detection Technology locates faces in a shot and automatically adjusts for natural skin tones
Face Detection

With Face Detection, up to 35 faces can be detected in each shot and focus, exposure, flash setting and white balance are all automatically adjusted for optimal results with natural-looking skin tones.

Face Select & Track

Face Select & Track allows a single face in a crowd to be selected and tracked as the main subject.

Smile and Wink Detection Self- Timer

A Face Detection Self-Timer also makes group photos and self-portraits easy. Once the shot has been set up, the shutter pressed and the self-timer starts, the camera records the number of faces detected in the frame. Face Detection Technology locates faces in a shot and automatically adjusts for natural skin tones It then waits for an extra face to get in the frame and once the main subject smiles or winks it adjusts focus and exposure before taking the picture.

Motion Detection Technology

Motion Detection Technology uses changes in scene information and scene brightness to accurately identify subject motion. The optimal ISO level is then set automatically to minimise blur and maximise image quality.

Automatic Red-Eye Correction

Automatic Red-Eye Correction is available in both shooting and playback mode and accurately removes the red-eye effect caused by the flash.
