SANS - Survey on application security programs

Canon has taken the wraps off its latest "luxury" compact, the Ixus 300 HS, set to go on sale later this month.

The 10Mp Ixus sports a 28mm wide-angle lens with 3.8x optical zoom and optical image stabilisation. The sensor feeds a 3in, 16:9 LCD on the back.

Canon touted the 300 HS' ability to reach an ISO of 6400, though at the cost of reduced resolution: 2.5Mp. But it will reach ISO 3200 at its full 10Mp.

At that resolution, the 300 HS is capable of continuous shooting at 3.7 shots a second rising to 8.4 shots a second at 2.5Mp. It also has a 240f/s slow-motion mode, Canon said.

The inevitable 720p HD video capture is here present, as is an HDMI port to feed an HD TV.

Expect to pay around £379 for the Ixus 300 HS, which will be available in black and silver. Canon is also offering red and white models, exclusively through John Lewis and Jessops, respectively. ®
