Moments in Reach

Canon SX 620 HS Portrayed by its long-reaching zoom, the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS is a sleek digital camera that is available in Black, Red and Silver, featuring a high-resolution 20.2 megapixel CMOS sensor complete with a powerful DIGIC 4+ image processor. The Image sensor and processor harmonize to form the Canon HS SYSTEM, which delivers images with conspicuous clarity and quality, along with reduced noise when shooting in high sensitivities in low-light situations.

The sensor and processor also provide recording Full 1080p HD video at 30 frames per second, shooting stills at up to 7.1 frames per second, and working with sensitivities as high as ISO 3200 to allow shooting in difficult lighting situations. Rounding off the photography capabilities is a 25x optical zoom lens, which handles a 25-625mm-equivalent focal length range of wide-angle to super telephoto, and Intelligent IS balances this range by diminishing the appearance of camera shake for crisper hand held images.

The camera's sleek form factor is accented by a big 922k-dot 3.0 inch LCD screen for composing images and reviewing shots, plus built-in Wi-Fi and NFC provide wireless sharing and remote camera control using a tablet or linked smartphone.

20.2MP CMOS Image Sensor with DIGIC 4+ Image Processor
The 20.2MP 1/2.3" CMOS image sensor provides high-resolution images that, when coupled with the DIGIC 4+ image processor, displays notable clarity and sensitivity up to ISO 3200, along with a top continuous shooting rate of 7.1 frames per second.

The sensor and processor work hand in hand to create Canon's HS SYSTEM, with the ability to provide clear, rich images in poorly-lit situations with minimal noise and vivid detail.
