The Canon Ixus 500 HS is an easy to use pocket-sized camera with a sleek silver finish. Inside the Ixus's slim, lightweight body is a 16.1 megapixel high-sensitivity CMOS sensor that's capable of capturing images of exceptional quality. A 12x optical zoom allows you to get closer to your subject.
The Ixus comes with special Face ID technology, which allows you to register up to 12 faces with names and birthdays. The camera can then automatically prioritise these individuals in every shot that’s taken.
Other features include a Full HD 1080p movie mode, an intelligent optical image stabiliser and a 3" PureColour II G LCD screen for reviewing footage and framing images.
The Canon Ixus is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and is compatible with SD and SDHC memory cards.
