The Canon Powershot SX520 HS is for people who want the quality of a DSLR camera without all the hassle of switching between lenses. It is especially perfect for those who plan regular family vacations, attend or host events or just happen to travel a lot. Canon’s HS system combines a highly sensitive 16MP CMOS sensor with a DIGIC 4+ processor to give you really great shots even in low lighting conditions. With an intelligent IS system, a Smart AUTO mode and a high speed auto focus, you never have to lose another precious moment to motion blur or camera shake.
Capture Fine Details with 24mm Lens and 42x Optical Zoom
You can take stunning landscape photographs with the camera’s built-in 24mm wide angle lens. In case your subject is far away, you can simply use its impressive 42x optical zoom to get a close up. This digital camera with wide angle lens comes with intelligent image stabilization (IS) technology, which allows you to zoom in to your subject without worrying about camera shake affecting your image. The IS system analyses the rate of camera movement and chooses the best mode out of its eight correction modes to reduce shake. If you think you are too far away and the subject is moving too fast, the Zoom Framing Assist feature will help you keep your subject in focus until you are ready to shoot.
Advanced Canon HS System
Not only does this 42x optical zoom camera have great features to make up for human error and other environmental factors, but it also has a solid technological base. Its 16MP CMOS sensor is extremely sensitive to light and keeps really bright light from bleeding into the other pixels in the frame. In combination with the camera’s DIGIC 4+ processor, it is capable of capturing crystal clear images even in low light. It increases the speed at which these images are processed as well as reduces noise in images taken using a higher ISO rate.
Shoot and Watch Videos in Full HD
The Canon 16MP digital camera features a dedicated movie button, which automatically puts the camera in video recording mode. This reduces the time spent going through the options on the control knob and keeps you from missing out on those blink-and-miss moments. You can use the zoom feature while recording and still always get great 1080p video output. To watch all your favourite home or vacation videos, simply hook your camera to your TV through its HDMI port and enjoy a full HD viewing experience. You can also easily view these videos on the 3-inch TFT screen of this Canon 16MP digital camera.
Get Creative with Your Photos
If leaving photos untouched is not your thing, and you don’t want anything as complicated as an HDR image, then use a creative filter to get just the right effects you want. The Creative Shot feature on this point and shoot camera retains the original composition of your photograph, while playing around with the colours and lighting to give you a completely new image. The 46 available filters are grouped into the Retro, Monochrome, Special and Natural categories for your convenience. When shooting in this mode, the camera automatically takes five additional images, besides the original, and gives you five variations.
Automatic Features for Added Convenience
Instead of spending long hours putting together a video of your family vacation, simply shoot in the Hybrid Auto mode. This mode records four seconds of video every time you shoot a still image and automatically puts these together with your stills to give you a wonderful video montage. Also, if you don’t want to waste precious time choosing the right settings, just turn on the Smart AUTO mode, which analyses your subject as well as elements in the background and chooses the right scene. The various scene modes come with predetermined settings, which the camera assigns for the best output.
A Great Camera with Useful Add-ons
The Canon Powershot SX520 HS digital camera will be an awesome addition to your collection of high-end gadgets. The cherry on the top is the inclusion of all the extras you will need for a seamless and enjoyable photography experience.
