With a digital camera all the pictures you make are stored digitally, which means you can instantly view a picture after you have taken it and take as many pictures as you like, without having to buy new films all the time. It is easy to download the pictures from your camera to your computer, either at home or at the shop and edit them before printing. Once they are on your computer, you can easily share your pics with the rest of the world by putting them on-line, or e-mailing them to friends.

Power with style

Resolve and design
The 4.0 Megapixel sensor on the Digital IXUS 40 is ideal for prints up to A3 size. One secret behind the super sleek and slim body is a new UA (ultra-high refractive index aspherical) 3x optical zoom lens, which delivers outstanding, uncompromising image fidelity in an incredibly compact size.

Big screen movies
The large, high-definition 2.0" LCD screen allows immediate review of images and playback of very long high quality 30 fps VGA movie clips with sound (recording of up to 1GB movie files possible). You can even shoot up to 60 sec of fast QVGA action at 60 fps for slow motion review.

Enviable technology
Canon's DIGIC II processor links all key camera functions and includes a dedicated movie processor, driving fast auto-focus, outstanding camera performance and quick start-up times. Highly complex image processing algorithms necessary to deliver superb image quality are handled fast and efficiently to keep you ready for the next shot and to allow for rapid, smooth continuous shooting.

Make a scene
iSAPS instantly analyses the scene and makes adjustments even before the shutter release is pressed. It optimises exposure, white balance and auto-focus settings in every shooting situation for consistently brilliant results. Six scene modes help you create great results with confidence in tricky shooting conditions, while a fully automatic 9-point AiAF system gets even off centre subjects sharply in focus.

Instant print
Connect the camera to any PictBridge compatible photo printer, push the Print/Share button and within seconds, you'll be holding a full colour print - it's that simple. When connected to a Canon SELPHY CP series printer, you can even print handy ID photo prints.

Sharing shots
Canon's comprehensive ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Macintosh) software is provided for editing and retouching shots and movies, managing and laying out albums as well as creating slide shows. Then compile your own online gallery with 100MB of free space on the CANON iMAGE GATEWAY** for sharing with friends and family.

Optional extras
An All Weather Case will keep you shooting while snorkelling, skiing, surfing and having general outdoor fun. Back inside, keep your Digital IXUS good as new with an optional, snug fitting Canon Soft Case

Picture quality
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
4 MP
Image sensor size*
Sensor type*
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Lens system
Optical zoom*
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom*
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
5.8 - 17.4 mm
Focus adjustment*
Auto Focus (AF) lock
Auto Focus (AF) assist beam
Light exposure
ISO sensitivity*
A measure of a photographic film's sensitivity to light.
50, 100, 200, 400, Auto
Light metering*
Light metering mode refers to the way in which a device determines the exposure. Multi-pattern and evaluative metering: the camera measures the light intensity in several points in the scene. Centre-weighted metering: the meter concentrates between 60 to 80 percent of the sensitivity towards the central part of the viewfinder. Spot metering: the camera will only measure a very small area of the scene (between 1-5% of the viewfinder area).
Centre-weighted, Spot
Flash modes*
Different modes for a camera flash which are manually/automatically activated e.g. auto-flash mode, flash on with red eye reduction.
Red-eye reduction
Flash range (tele)*
0.5 - 2 m
Video recording*
Recording moving visual images.
Maximum video resolution*
This is the maximum resolution of video images. Resolution is a measure of the degree of detail visible.

The description of display that can includes display type, resolution, size etc.
Display diagonal*
Size of the display for this product, measured diagonally, usually in inches.

Display resolution (numeric)
Total number of pixels that display has.

Viewfinder type
A viewfinder is the window in the camera through which a photographer views the picture. Used for choosing, composing, and often focusing the image. There are two types: optical and digital. In an optical viewfinder, the photographer looks through a transparent window to frame and focus the image. The photographer is seeing the real image, through the window of the viewfinder. With a digital viewfinde, there is an LCD display built into a camera that gives a digital view of where the camera is pointing. It's used to compose and focus the image.
Ports & interfaces
PictBridge *
PictBridge is an industry standard introduced in 2003 from the Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) for direct printing. It allows images to be printed directly from digital cameras to a printer, without having to connect the camera to a computer using common connectivity like USB or Bluetooth.
White balance *
Technique in photography and image processing, which involves a global adjustment of the intensities of the colors (typically red, green, and blue primary colors). An important goal of this adjustment is to render specific colors – particularly neutral colors including white – correctly.
Auto, Cloudy, Custom modes, Daylight, Fluorescent, Tungsten
Scene modes *
Scenery mode', 'Portrait mode' and other modes which are manually/automatically activated on a camera and change the settings (e.g. exposure time) accordingly.
Children, Night, Party (indoor), Portrait, Underwater
Photo effects *
Different effects that you can use to modify photos after they have been taken, such as colour filters.
Black&White, Neutral, Sepia, Vivid
Self-timer *
Duration of self-timer, that's a camera device that gives a delay between pressing the shutter release and the shutter's firing. It is most commonly used to let photographers to take a photo of themselves (often with the family), hence the name.
