Canon IXUS160 Red Camera

Detailed Features


Zoom Function

The 8x optical zoom allows you to cover the daily shooting range, reaching 224mm equivalent at the telephoto end. The 28mm wide-angle lens enables you to capture more in your frame.



Quality Images

The high quality CCD sensor is more sensitive to light than ever before, making capturing photos in low light an issue of the past. Images taken on this camera turn out brighter and sharper.



Image Stabilization

Digital image stabilization involves software technology to minimise any vibrations or shakes from your surroundings. This allows you to capture your memories on photo or video in the best quality available.



Smart Auto

Smart Auto automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and subject, providing a simple way to get high quality images in all situations. Detected scenes are analysed using a variety of presents that allow the camera to choose optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture, whether shooting stills or video.



Image Processor Technology

The camera is equipped with Canon’s fast processor, the DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which makes several important advancements to image quality both in stills and video. Improved light sensitivity allows for high resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions, and Dynamic IS now detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to create video that’s exceptionally free of distortion.



HD Movies

Bring your memories to life as you experience your videos on Full High Definition. The high quality resolution and MP4 audio recording will make your audience feel like they were there with you all along.
