PowerShot SD400 DIGITAL ELPH
DIGITAL IXUS 50 IXY DIGITAL 55
The IXY DIGITAL 55 inherits the same outstanding functionality and design as the IXY DIGITAL 50 launched in October 2004 to realize outstanding image quality and ease of use. The 55 features a 1/2.5" 5.0-megapixel CCD sensor and an ultra-compact retractable 3x zoom lens with a focal length of 35-105mm (35mm film equivalent). The camera's lens unit, incorporating two ultra-high refractive index glass-molded aspherical lens elements, is the smallest retractable lens in the IXY DIGITAL series lineup.
The IXY DIGITAL 55 also shares many of the same features as the flagship-model 600, including Canon's DIGIC II image engine for high-definition images and fast data processing; a bright energy-saving 2.0" LCD monitor offering LCD Booster and Night View functions; a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface supporting high-speed data transfer; and the My Colors function.
The IXY DIGITAL 55 supports the PictBridge standard for printing photos directly from PictBridge-compatible printers, regardless of the manufacturer or brand.
