Canon IXUS 175 Price is Just Php 4,998 : Affordable Digicam That Pairs With Your Smartphone or Tablet!

If there's one segment in the tech industry that had been worst hit by the unstoppable rise of smartphones within the past decade, I'd say it's definitely the point and shoot digital camera segment.

The large number of powerhouse handsets with great imaging capabilities that had been launched since 2007 had taken the eyes of most consumers away from similarly priced digicams that frankly had limited features.

With the 2016 release of Canon IXUS 175, the Tokyo-based imaging titan proves that they are still doing their best to update this category and make it more competitive in these era of mobile devices with multiple functionality.

But what makes this digital camera fit for this day and age is that it is FlashAir and Eye-Fi support compatible. This means that you can share images and videos using Canon IXUS 175 to your smartphones or tablets via WiFi for easy and quick sharing on your social networking accounts or cloud storage.

In conjunction with a practical zoom range, capturing high resolution images will be a breeze even for beginners. Its compact size and lightweight design at less than 150 grams makes it suitable for everyday use.
