Chronology of cameras Canon 

The Ixus cameras are cameras that use APS film. The design of the first model and its extremely small size, comparable to that of a pack of cigarettes, were highly notable. Its meticulously crafted metal construction went against the prevailing trend in the market, which was dominated by plastic. Consequently, it was considered a high-end camera.
Canon diversified the series with cameras that were dissimilar, lacking the same characteristics or level of finishing. The common factor among them was the use of APS film.

The Ixus cameras remained on the market for a few years. They were successful, as between May 1996 and January 1999 (the release date of the IXUS II), over 2.2 million units were sold.
However, the APS debacle hastened the disappearance of these cameras. The advent of digital technology definitively ended the era of APS. Production of the films ceased in 2011.

Canon retained the name for its new digital compact cameras. In this case, the name is supplemented with the word "Digital."

This denomination was reserved for the North American market.

This compact APS has an unusual appearance. It was the subject of a Design patent, numbered 392 988. It was created by Ishikawa Yoshifumi and Toyoda Yasuhiro and was filed on July 26, 1996.

Its large pivoting cover, besides serving as lens protection, allows the built-in flash to be positioned far enough from the optical axis to reduce red-eye effect. Note the size of the reflector of this flash, comparable to those integrated into SLR cameras.

Its zoom has a true wide-angle minimum focal length (equivalent to 28 mm), which was uncommon for compact APS cameras at the time. Its zoom offers decent sharpness, and exposure is very good (Chasseur d'Images test n°199).

Everything on this model is fully automated (including the film access door), and nothing functions without a battery. Upon startup, the focal length automatically adjusts to 38 mm.

There are six selectable result programs thanks to a rotating button on the back.
