Product details

Wherever life takes you, be ready for that definitive moment with the Canon IXUS 265 HS Compact Digital Camera in purple.

Quality in your pocket

Give your memories the quality they deserve and capture life's wonderful moments in clean, crisp and colourful images. The Canon HS system is designed to inject more detail into each picture, even when shooting in challenging light. At the heart of the compact IXUS camera sits an advanced DIGIC 4+ processor and a 16-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS image sensor. This impressive combination produces beautifully sharp photos with rich tones, natural colours and ambience of the scene, just like the real thing.

Optical features

Distant subjects can be shot just as well as those close at hand; the 12x optical zoom range lets you get up close to the subject while the handy 24x ZoomPlus feature takes you even closer without compromising on image quality.

The 25 mm ultra-wide angle lens allows you to capture more in a single frame, perfect for composing shots with groups of people or breathtaking scenery.

It's possible to capture difficult moments in sharp focus thanks to the intelligent optical image stabilisation system. The camera automatically selects the optimal Image Stabiliser mode from 8 options for pin-sharp, crisp and striking stills and videos.

Shoot and share

Share your latest photos using the built-in WiFi sharing facility. This allows you to instantly connect with your smartphone, tablet, printer or PC. Wirelessly transfer moments for backup or to share with friends and family online. When connected to a smartphone you can add GPS location information to your images. And that's not all; you can use the smartphone as a remote and capture with remote shooting.

The NFC functionality gives you an instant link between the IXUS 265 camera and NFC-enabled devices.

Get creative

Creative Shot mode makes it easy to add a personal touch to images. Capture the moment and the camera will analyse the scene before automatically generating five creative images as well as the original photo, leaving you with the composition in a variety of cool and artistic versions. You can also select a filter category and create pictures with your chosen set of Creative Shot filters.

Smart Auto mode automatically detects the scene and selects the most favourable settings from 32 variables (21 in movies). This is great for those who want quick, hassle-free photos.

Hybrid Auto mode captures a 4-second movie clip before each snap, then combines them into a fun HD (720p) movie.

With heaps of features, brilliant image quality and wireless connectivity, the Canon IXUS 265 HS Compact Digital Camera puts impressive compact photography in your pocket.
