10X optical zoom makes it the thinnest super-zoom yet

Canon marks 10th anniversary of IXUS with the IXUS 1000 HS

Digital imaging specialist Canon has announced the new Canon IXUS 1000 HS to mark the 10 year aniversity of the IXUS series. 

The high-end IXUS 1000 HS offers the new 10-megapixel sensor and 10x optical zoom which the company says is the world’s smallest compact camera with this level of zoom.

The camera can also record full HD 1080p video at 24fps and will cost £349 when it goes on sale next month. The 1000 HS is also armed with a HDMI out and a 3-inch PureColor II G screen.

"The integrated HS System ensures excellent performance in low light, taking advantage of the 10.0MP high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 processor to provide premium image quality and up to 60% lower noise levels at all ISO speeds," said Canon.

"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."

The video below offers a nostalgic walk through ten years of IXUS digital cameras before containing some more about the IXUS 1000 HS.
