Digital Camera

Marketed March 2007

The Canon IXY DIGITAL 10 succeeds the IXY DIGITAL 70 launched in March 2006 as the core model in the company's IXY DIGITAL-series lineup. The camera is equipped with a 7.1-megapixel CCD (increased from 6.0 megapixels) and, with the realization of a further reduction in the size of the lens barrel, achieves a slim-body design that, despite inheriting the same 3x optical-zoom performance, is approximately 2.3 mm thinner than its predecessor. The IXY DIGITAL 10's square-form body features a high-precision flat-surface design that does away with all ornamental elements as much as possible, highlighting the unit's slimness while striking a balance between overall aesthetic beauty and functional beauty as a camera. The lens barrel and surrounding ring section on the model's front cover is available in black or silver color variations, offering users a choice depending on personal preference.The IXY DIGITAL 10 incorporates a 2.5-inch high-resolution (approximately 230,000 dots) "Clear Live LCD" monitor that offers a wide viewing angle and realizes a wide color-reproduction range. A protective cover on the monitor contributes to increased ease of use by reducing glare while also protecting the screen from scratches, dirt and grime.
