Delightful Selfies and More with Canon IXUS 265 HS

Are you in the market for a camera that is lightweight, easy on the pocket, but loaded with outstanding features, you can actually take clear, crisp, great -looking photos with the minimum of hassle? Seems like a pipedream, right?

As a fashion and lifestyle blogger, I have time and again found myself covering events and having to struggle with a huge camera hanging on my neck while dressed in formal attire and matching high heels to boot! So unglamorous!

Well, not anymore. Thanks to the new Canon Ixus 265 HS, taking snapshots of important events while you're dressed to the nines does not have to be too much of a hassle!

Consider these features:

• Get the quality your memories deserve with 16 MP HS System
• Fit everyone in the frame with the ultra-wide angle or zoom in to distant subjects using the powerful optical zoom and ZoomPlus
• Wi-Fi and NFC for easy connection to your smartphone and for sharing on social networks + upload images to Canon iMage Gateway
• No more blurred photos and movies thanks to Image Stabilizer and Intelligent IS
• Creative Shot effortlessly adds artistic twists to shots
• Smart Auto takes care of all the camera settings, so you can simply point and shoot
• Get a movie summary of your day with Hybrid Auto
• Choose the camera that fits your lifestyle with the stylish, ultra compact body
• IXUS compact cameras are easy to use

Of course, I still use an SLR for photoshoots or in events when I have my photographer-boyfriend with me. But when I am by my lonesome, I now carry my Canon Ixus 265 HS. It fits right into even my smallest purse!

One of my favorite features is the 12x optical zoom capability! Its perfect for events like fashion shows, concerts, or even basketball games, which I love to watch.

Oh and the other great thing about my Canon Ixus 265 is that it takes incredible selfies! And since it is Wi-fi certified, I can share my pictures on my social media accounts instantly!

Check out these selfies I just took!

Having difficulty taking selfies as good as these? Here are few useful tips!

1. Choose a good background
2. Choose a place with bright lighting or abundant sunlight
3. Know your angles and use it in taking your selfie!
4. Smiling is the best selfie pose!
5. Avoid looking haggard with pretty but light make-up and by fixing your hair

And, if you still haven't, get yourself a Canon IXUS 265 HS and do the IXUS-style Selfie! It's such a good deal for only PHP8,995! That's a lot of value for money right there!
