Canon ELPH 500 / IXUS 310 announcement clippings

The inclusion of the HS System enables the IXUS 310 HS to offer leading performance. The high-sensitivity 12.1Megapixel CMOS sensor combines with Canon's DIGIC 4 image processor to form the HS System and realise the highest possible image quality, capturing images with significantly less noise in all conditions. Dynamic range is improved and users are able to capture sharp, blur-free shots of scenes in low light that would usually demand flash support.

The IXUS 310 HS features a genuine Canon 24mm, ultra-wide angle, 4.4x optical zoom lens with a bright f/2.0 maximum aperture. As well as providing greater shooting flexibility, the lens design enables faster shutter speeds to be used, capturing the maximum amount of ambient light for well exposed, natural shots. Users can also shoot with a shallower depth of field than most other compact cameras for more engaging portraits and creative macro shots. A 4-stop optical Image Stabilizer steadies the light passing through the lens elements, counteracting shake and image blur that can occur when shooting with slower shutter speeds or at the telephoto-end of the zoom.

Working together, the HS System, the f/2.0 lens and the advanced optical Image Stabilizer become the ultimate tool for sharper and clearer image results in all lighting conditions – especially in low light situations.
