The recently announced IXUS 130 is Canon's slimmest IXUS model to date, measuring in at 17.8mm at its thickest point, and here we bring you some real-life, hands-on, in the flesh (so to speak) images of the new compact.

Specs come in with a 14-megapixel sensor, 28mm 4x zoom lens, and a 2.7-inch LCD. Other features of note include the ability to capture 720p video, an HDMI port, creative special effects options and Canon's new "Smart Shutter" features that include the ability to snap a pic with the wink of an eye.

The IXUS 130 is due in March available in silver, black, orange and pink and will cost you £279.
