Canon PowerShot S230

However, while maintaining the essential principle of Canon’s ultra-compact IXY DIGITAL series, the Canon IXY DIGITAL 320 provides enhanced resolution in response to consumer requests.

The IXY DIGITAL 320, which has a newly designed high-resolution 1/2.7′′ 3.2-megapixel CCD sensor, employs high-precision double-sided CSP mounting technology to achieve the world’s lowest body size for a 3-megapixel class camera, according to the manufacturer.

Additionally, the unit includes advanced features befitting a 3-megapixel IXY DIGITAL, such as a compact high-performance 2x optical zoom lens (equivalent to 35-70 mm in 35 mm format); the ability to record video with sound in VGA (640 x 480 pixels) at 15 frames per second continuously for up to 30 seconds, or up to 3 minutes at lower resolutions; and a 9-point AiAF system.
