Focus on style and performance with the Canon IXUS 255 HS digital compact camera. Get closer or fit everyone in with an ultra-wide 10x optical zoom and use Wi-Fi to share instantly online. HS System ensures exceptional results.


10x zoom, 24mm ultra wide lens; 20x Zoom Plus
Use the 10x optical zoom to get closer to distant subjects or get closer still with 20x ZoomPlus. Fit more in the frame for great group shots and sweeping landscapes with 24mm ultra-wide-angle.

HS System: 12.1 MP CMOS, DIGIC 5
HS System excels in low light so you can capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or a tripod. Advanced DIGIC 5 processing and a high-sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor give exceptional image quality in all situations.

Intelligent IS
Intelligent IS combats camera shake to ensure all your photos and videos are sharp and detailed even at full zoom or in low light. It automatically adjusts the optical Image Stabilizer to the scene from multiple modes to prevent blur.

Wi-Fi* for easy sharing; GPS via Mobile
Wi-Fi lets you connect easily with home wireless networks, compatible printers and PCs, as well as portable devices like smartphones and tablets, for fast, convenient, online image sharing. Use your smartphone’s GPS to keep track of shooting locations then synchronise it with your camera over Wi-Fi to add this information to your images.

7.5cm (3.0") PureColor II G LCD
A large, high quality LCD screen (461k dots) with excellent visibility and durability offers effortless menu navigation, lets you frame and view your shots with ease and makes sharing them a pleasure.

Smart Auto (58 scenes). Hybrid Auto
Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects perfect settings from 58 variables (21 in movies). It also works with Face ID and adapts shooting to registered age – such as turning off flash and sounds when detecting a sleeping baby. Hybrid Auto lets you take photos with Smart Auto and also captures a 4 second movie clip before each shot – combining them into a fun HD (720p) movie.

Full HD movies
Record superb Full HD (1080p) movies with stereo sound and optical zoom, while Intelligent IS keeps footage steady.

Face ID
Face ID lets you register up to 12 familiar faces, so they are automatically the focusing priority in every shot, and name tags images so they are easy to find in playback.

High speed shooting
Capture stunning fast-paced action with High-speed Burst or slow it down spectacularly with Super Slow Motion Movie.

Creative modes
Experiment and have fun with a range of creative filters such as Fish-eye, Super Vivid or Miniature Effect.
