In addition to the elegant lines, ultra-compact dimensions, and immaculate elegance that have come to be associated with Canon’s famous IXY (rhymes with Dixie) DIGITAL series, the Canon PowerShot S330 incorporates new features.
The IXY DIGITAL 300a incorporates cutting-edge optical technology to produce images of exceptional quality and clarity. The 300a is equipped with a 1/2.7-inch CCD sensor with 2 million effective pixels of resolution, an RGB primary color filter, and Canon’s proprietary high-speed Imaging Engine digital signal-processing IC, which allows it to produce images with a high signal-to-noise ratio, high definition, and accurate color reproduction, among other things.
With the Intelligent Orientation Sensor, Canon PowerShot S330 is the first camera in the IXY DIGITAL or PowerShot compact digital lineup to automatically detect the camera’s orientation while also ensuring optimal Auto-Focus, Auto-Exposure, and Auto-White Balance performance. The Intelligent Orientation Sensor is found in all IXY DIGITAL and PowerShot compact digital lineups.

A number of high-end features are also included, including five popular Photo Effects that allow for greater creativity at the touch of a button; Intelligent AE that ensures optimal exposure performance; five white balance presets; noise reduction; a wide shutter speed range of 15 seconds to 1/1500 second; and a histogram display that allows the user to check the overall exposure for each photo on the LCD monitor.
Aside from that, the IXY DIGITAL 300a makes use of innovative ultra-high-density mounting technology, which results in a slimmer camera body. Additionally, the “Camera Direct Print” function, when used in conjunction with compact digital picture printers, will give the user a great deal of pleasure.
