MarketedApril 2006

TheIXY DIGITAL 80 is Canon's first digital camera to offer a high-resolution ultra-large 3.0-inch LCD monitor. The ultra-large screen enables users to get the best out of the newly incorporated Focus Checker function, which offers a convenient way to check image focus right after shooting by simultaneously displaying two screens-one containing the entire image and one showing a selected area within the image.

Canon's IXY DIGITAL 80 also features an innovative new touch control dial that allows users to quickly and easily scroll through captured images or change the camera's menu settings. Moreover, the new camera incorporates a 6.0-megapixel CCD sensor and an ultra-compact 3x zoom lens for exceptional imaging performance.
