The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS Combines a high-resolution image sensor, a
wide ranging zoom lens, capacious sharing capabilities, is a convenient and versatile point-and-shoot compact digital camera. A 16 megapixel
High-Sensitivity CMOS image sensor along with a DIGIC 4+ imaging processor team up to mold the HS SYSTEM, and to accomplish notable image clarity, particularly in poor and difficult lighting situations, sensitivity all the way to ISO 3200, plus a high performance burst rate accomplishing 10 frames per second. Embodying functioning in a wide array of environments, a big 50x zoom lens delivers an equivalent 24-1200mm focal range length, which is additionally supported by
smart IS imaging stabilization to assure crisp and sharp images. Looking past its shooting abilities, additionally SX530 HS is wirelessly adept, having the capability to move imagers direct to mobile devices using Wi-Fi, connect by using NFC (Near Field Communication), and control the camera remotely from linked tablets or smartphones.
Support for full1080/30p HD video capture is also available in addition to shooting stills , and easily accessible using its dedicated movie button. Facilitating working with far off moving subjects, the Zoom Framing Assist accommodates in maintaining composition and focus when shooting at increased focal lengths. Hybrid Auto, Creative Shot and Smart AUTO modes are all instantly available to further enhance the look of images, while a 461k-dot 3.0"
LCD screen is integrated into the ergonomic layout to accomplish monitoring of
live view and picture playback. In addition, the Canon SX530 HS is commensurate with the available CS100 Connect Station for seamless wireless back-up, storage, and image sharing.
16MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 4+ Image Processor
The 16MP High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor produces high-resolution imagery that, when paired with the DIGIC 4+ image processor, exhibits notable clarity and sensitivity to ISO 3200, as well as a top continuous shooting rate of 10 fps. The sensor and processor work together to create Canon's HS SYSTEM, which is able to produce clear, rich imagery in dimly-lit situations with minimal noise and vivid detail.
Beyond still image recording, the SX530 is also capable of recording full HD 1080p video at 30 fps, which is easily accessible via a dedicated movie button.
50x Optical Zoom Lens
Covering wide-angle to super telephoto perspectives, the 50x optical zoom lens provides a 24-1200mm equivalent focal length range to suite working in nearly any situation. Intelligent IS image stabilization benefits this extensive reach, as well as when working in difficult lighting conditions, by compensating for camera shake for sharper, clearer imagery. Eight distinct stabilization modes are available to best suit different types of shooting:
Normal IS corrects for a wide range of common camera movements.
Panning IS detects deliberate panning movements and does not compensate for lateral movements to permit desired camera movements.
Macro (Hybrid) IS corrects for shift-type camera shake that commonly occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
Tripod is a dedicated setting that automatically deactivates IS when the use of a tripod is detected since camera-based stabilization is not needed.
Dynamic IS is well-suited to recording at wide-angle focal lengths and reduces unwanted shaking that typically occurs when walking while recording.
Powered IS compensates for hand movements that become more visually discernable when working at the telephoto end of the zoom range.
Macro (Hybrid) IS minimizes the appearance of shake when walking as well as compensates for shift-type shake that occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
Active Tripod IS minimizes the slight amount of shake that can happen when recording video while using a tripod.
Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables seamless and instant transferring of photos and videos to mobile devices, home computers, and to select social networking sites. Linking Android devices to the camera is aided through the incorporation of NFC (Near Field Communication), which facilitates connection simply by tapping the two devices together. Additionally, linked mobile devices can also be used to remotely control and release the camera's shutter and display a live view image on the linked device's screen when using the Canon CameraWindow app.
Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity further provide compatibility with the optional Connect Station CS100 for automated wireless transferring and sharing of files.
Other Camera Features
A 3.0" 461k-dot LCD monitor is available for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation.
High Speed AF utilizes updated algorithms and technologies to benefit subject tracking and overall focusing accuracy and speed.
Zoom Framing Assist automatically zooms in or out to keep a subject within the frame and in focus when using longer telephoto focal lengths.
Creative Shot modes help to transform your original imagery into creative and unique works using a system of 46 in-camera filters, which are grouped within Retro, Monochrome, Special, and Natural categories Once the original image has been taken, the camera will automatically produce five additional variations using this series of filters.
Hybrid Auto will record short video clips prior to recording a still image, and then automatically compile them into one file to produce a highlight reel of a shooting session.
Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on recognized shooting situations.
