Canon Middle East has launched the latest IXUS 500 HS and the IXUS 125 HS compact digital cameras.

Equipped with Canon's advanced lens innovation, the IXUS 500 HS has 12x optical zoom built into a 19.2mm body and is available in red, blue, black and silver. The IXUS 125 HS comes in pink, red, silver, green and blue.

Both new models offer Canon's advanced imaging technologies to help capture the best images from dimly lit to bright scenes, and are equipped with Canon's DIGIC 5 image processor. The IXUS 500 HS has a 10.1MP sensor and with Canon's ZoomPlus technology can reach up to 21x magnification, beyond its 12x optical zoom.  The IXUS 125 HS has a 16.1MP sensor and can zoom up to 10x with the same technology, beyond its 5x optical zoom.

New Intelligent IS technology gives steady and clear results both in photos and movies by analysing the subject and automatically applying the most appropriate Image Stabilizer settings from seven different modes. Canon's enhanced Smart Auto detects 58 different scenes and applies the best combination of settings to take the best picture.

Both models can capture Full HD 1080p video, and the IXUS 500 HS also records sound in stereo. Movies can be played back on a large screen thanks to the integrated HDMI-CEC port.
