It is easy to download the pictures from your camera to your computer, either at home or at the shop and edit them before printing. Once they are on your computer, you can easily share your pics with the rest of the world by putting them on-line, or e-mailing them to friends.

Power and style
Key to the cutting edge miniaturisation of the Digital IXUS 50 is the ultra-high refractive index aspherical (UA) 3x optical zoom lens, which delivers outstanding optical performance and corner-to-corner clarity in an exceptionally compact form. It combines with the 5.0 Megapixel sensor to deliver superb images suited for photo quality prints to A3 size.

Big screen movies
Review and share images and movie clips on the large high-definition 2.0" LCD. Night Display mode automatically improves visibility when it is dark, while the user-controlled Quick-bright function lets you frame/review comfortably in low-light conditions. Record and playback extended 30 fps VGA movie clips with sound (up to 1GB files possible¹). Analyse fast action sequences by recording QVGA quality at 60 fps and watching in slow motion.

Groundbreaking technology
Integrating a Canon DIGIC II processor, the Digital IXUS 50 has power to burn. DIGIC II links all key camera functions, driving fast auto-focus, outstanding camera performance, quick start-up times and first-class image quality.
Like a hidden photographer's assistant, iSAPS uses DIGIC II's power to analyse the scene and optimise key camera settings even before the shutter release is pressed. 10 shooting modes including 6 scene modes combine with 9-point auto-focus system (AiAF) to deliver consistently brilliant results in every situation.

Get creative
Create exciting visual effects with My Colors by making favourite colours more vivid, swapping one colour with another, or making all but one area of an image monochrome.

Capture snorkelling, skiing and surfing action with the optional 3m depth All Weather Case, and extend lighting options with the optional High Power Flash.

Photo fun
For full colour prints within seconds, simply connect the camera to any PictBridge compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button. It's that easy. With a Canon SELPHY CP series printer, you can even print handy ID photo prints and Movie prints.

Editing and sharing
Canon's ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Macintosh) help you arrange albums, crop photographs and adjust image contrast and brightness. Access to CANON iMAGE GATEWAY² gives you 100MB online space for your own personal gallery, for sharing with family and friends.

Camera CCD sensor
CCD (Charged Coupled Device): A silicone chip comprised of millions of tiny, square light-gathering diodes called Picture Elements, or pixels, laid out in a checkerboard pattern. This is the "film" of a digital camera. The light data gathered from these tiny pixels needs to be "processed" by the camera's image processor into Recorded Pixels. \n\n\n\nSuper CCD: A proprietary CCD system, produced by Fujifilm, that utilizes larger, octagonal-shaped, light-gathering diodes called Picture Elements, or pixels, that are laid out in a saw-tooth pattern. Super CCDs can capture more light information than ordinary CCDs; the extra information is used by the camera's image processor to improve color accuracy and ISO Speed. \n\n\n\n Super CCD HR (High Resolution): Is capable of nearly doubling the Number of Effective Pixels that are processed and stored as additional detail in the Recorded Pixel file. \n\n\n\n Super CCD SR (Sensitivity and Range): Uses a combination of small and large octagonal-shaped pixels to further enhance color accuracy, while improving detail in the areas of shadows and highlights, much like traditional film
1/2.5" CCD
