The PowerShot SX530HS gives you the power to capture amazing images & movies from a distance with its 50x zoom and 100x ZoomPlus premium Canon lens. With outstanding optical quality, fast responsive photographic controls, a design you can take anywhere and built in Wi-Fi and NFC controls, the SX530HS is the ideal camera for budding travellers on the go.

 

Get in Close

The 50x optical zoom allows you to get closer to your subject, reaching 1200mm equivalent at the telephoto end. The 24mm wide-angle lens enables wide range of shooting and capturing beautiful landscapes or great group shots.

 

Zoom Framing Assist Button

This function allows you to automatically detect the movement of your subject during high-powered zoom. Track the subject and keep it in frame without losing it, due to shaking of hand or fast subject movement. This function remembers your previous zoom position while zooming out to track the moving subject, and then zoom back in to the saved position for the shot.

 

Connected to your World

The camera is equipped with built in Wi-Fi® technology for convenient sharing and transferring of your still images and video. You can easily post your images to social networking and media sites such as Facebook®, Twitter®, Youtube™ and Flickr® or save them to your photo album to share anytime, anywhere. The camera can also connect directly to both iOS® and Android™ devices, and upload images via the free Canon CameraWindow app without a computer. You can control the destination of your uploads to share with everyone or to selected groups, and even add comments. With the one touch connection to your Mobile Device Connect Button, you can choose to transfer images to your smartphone or tablet for immediate sharing with the CameraWindow app, or to your computer on the same network with Image Sync to make saving and organising your images easier. When the camera finds a linked computer on the same wireless network, images are sent directly to it.

 

Remote Shooting

This feature allows you to capture group or landscape images with ease. It gives you the opportunity to be more flexible and creative with your photography as you are able to view, compose and take images via devices such as your phone.

 

Manual Control

Get creative with your photography and enjoy full flexibility with manual control. This will allow you to experiment and capture breathtaking images by controlling the aperture, shutter speed and ISO in each setting. This feature gives you that extra ability to still capture your images the way you wish without the size and weight of a DSLR camera.

 

Creative Shot

The camera features an advanced Creative Shot mode to make creating artistic photos even more fun. In Creative Shot mode, the camera captures the original composition and automatically produces and saves five additional variations by using advanced Canon technologies to apply filter options based on the individual scene, subject and exposure. On the camera, over 40 filter choices are available and are grouped into Retro, Monochrome, Special and Natural categories to make exploring the world of artistic photography fun and easy. With Creative Shot mode, the result is stunning artistic photos that are perfect for sharing.
