Great Images Are in Your View

Canon SX 530 HS An advanced compact camera personified by a fast zoom lens and a big image sensor and fast zoom lens, the Canon PowerShot G5 X camera pairs a DIGIC 6 image processor and 20.2 MP High Sensivity CMOS sensor to create the Canon HS SYSTEM for enhanced poor-light environments, quick performance and full 1080p/60 HD video recording.

Matching the versatility for imaging the 4.2x optical zoom lens, offers a 24-100mm equivalent focal length range, and provides a brilliant f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture for controlling depth of field and working in difficult lighting situations. Both a 3.0" 1.04m-dot multi-angle touch screen LCD, high-resolution 2.36m-dot electronic viewfinder and are available for image reviewing and monitoring, plus built-in NFC Wi-Fi lets you wirelessly share images with a tablet, smartphone, or Connect Station CS100. Featuring a combined sophisticated sensor and processor.

The G5 X features both apt imaging abilities along with a wealth of functional chattels for sharing and shooting control. To advance handling, the G5 X has been equipped with numerous physical controls, including an on-board front dial, exposure compensation dial, control ring and control dial for quickly adjusting varied photography settings. A hot shoe is integrated with the design for shooting with an available external flash unit, and the camera is also congruent with the optional RS-60E3 for wired remote photography.  ✓
