Canon IXUS 500 HS - Twelve Years On
In the twelve years since the original IXUS was instantly and
universally proclaimed an icon of style, successive Canon IXUS cameras have
remained at the forefront of design even while boasting the very latest
in digital technology. Now, opening a new era of IXUS design, the
Canon IXUS 500 HS digital camera is both homage to the original IXUS and astonishing synthesis of Canon's leadership in technical
advancements. A mere 0.76 inches thick, it is the world's thinnest 12x
Canon IXUS 500 HS - HS System
The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider
range of shooting situations. Beautiful low-light shots are possible
with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The
system is the result of two technologies brought together in PowerShot
cameras: a high-sensitivity imaging sensor, which is able to capture
more light; and the DIGIC 5 Image Processor, which actively reduces
noise with high-speed image processing. The 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
in the Cano nIXUS500HS digital camera incorporates advanced light
reception technology that enhances sensitivity. (In simpler terms, Canon have updated the processing chip in this Canon and concentrated on allowing the camera to take considerably better photos in low light conditions, like night photography).

able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24* frames per second, the
PowerShot ELPH 520 HS can also shoot 720p HD video at 30** frames per
Canon IXUS 500 HS - 3" LCD Screen
The Canon IXUS500HS digital camera's large and bright 3.0-inch
PureColour LCD screen makes it easy to view and frame your shots in high
resolution. Many LCD screens on the market today use a
striped arrangement of dots that works great for text and menus, but is
not ideal for imagery. The IXUS 500 HS digital camera's
PureColor System LCD uses a delta arrangement of dots, an arrangement
that works better for the organic nature of photos and videos, allowing
you to review your images with exceptional clarity with rich,

Smart AUTO for the Canon IXUS500HS has been significantly
expanded, making it easier than ever to capture the sharp, bright,
colorful images - and videos - you're looking for. By assessing various

predefined shooting situations and automatically selects the camera
settings that will yield the best possible results. Simply frame the
shot you want, and in dozens of common or challenging scenarios the

"keeper" shots. Smart AUTO makes the IXUS500HS ideal for
capturing excellent quality still images and video on the go.
