The Canon IXUS 285 HS is an ultra-slim pocket camera, aimed at people looking for good image quality in a compact package.

Easy to use and with a 25mm ultra-wide 12x optical zoom lens, the IXUS 285 is a highly versatile camera, and it’s only 22.8mm thick. Sitting at the core of its sleek, metal frame is a 20.2-megapixel CMOS sensor with Canon DIGIC 4+ image processing and intelligent optical image stabilisation. It’s a combination that can deliver significantly better image quality when compared to a smartphone.

The high resolution of the camera’s sensor means that you will be able to capture images that look good whether printed or displayed large on smart devices such as laptops, tablets and 4K TVs. While the DIGIC 4+ processor offers detailed images with natural colours, and the camera’s dynamic anti-shake technology works to deliver sharp images with reduced image noise and blurriness, even in low light.

This type of camera is particularly popular for travel and for people looking for a better alternative to using a smartphone. The slim design and convenience of the IXUS 285 means you can easily slip it into your pocket and take it everywhere. The rear of the camera houses its 3-inch 461k-dot LCD, which provides a clear representation of the scene while you’re composing your shots.

As well as a host of fun photo effects, the IXUS 285 offers scene selection, camera assisted and Creative Shot modes to help you get more out of your images in-camera. However, if you want the camera to take full control of the settings, you just have to point and shoot, using Hybrid Auto mode. In this mode the camera will intelligently choose the best settings for you and it can also create a video summary including highlights from your day.
