    50x Optical Zoom (24a??1200mm)

    Experiencing the versatile reach of the SX530 HS's amazing 50x Optical Zoom, will ensure that you never want to be without it. The powerful zoom beautifully captures sporting events to vaction stills, wildlife to sweeping vistas, with every detail distinguishing your photography. Not only will you have the ability to move in all the way to the exact shot you want, but you'll be able to capture those shots with incredible Canon quality. The camera's secure ergonomic grip makes steady handheld shooting easy and comfortable, while Intelligent IS analyzes the shooting situation and applies the best stabilization technology to keep images clear and virtually shake–free in a wide variety of conditions.

    Built–in NFC (Near Field Communication)

    PowerShot digital cameras with built–in NFC (Near Field Communication) technology eliminates the need to manually find and open the new Canon CameraWindow app* on your mobile device. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android™ device**, and the CameraWindow app will launch automatically for quick, easy sharing of your images. Built–in NFC technology also makes it simpler to install the app. If the app hasn't been installed yet, once you touch the devices together for the first time, the download screen will display automatically. Now, NFC helps ensure making a connection to a compatible Android™ device* truly seamless. Simply touch the camera against an NFC–equipped device with the Canon CameraWindow app installed, and the Wi–Fi® connection is established a?? no camera operations required. Even if your camera is off, NFC turns the camera on and establishes the connection (confirming the camera's nickname and privacy settings before the first connection is required).

    Built–in Wi–Fi® makes sharing quick and easy

    Built–in Wi–Fi® technology for on–the–go convenience when you want to share your photos and videos with friends, family and the whole world. Easily post your images to social networking and media sites a?? Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube™, Flickr®, and Google Drive™ a?? through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY*** directly from your PowerShot camera, or save them to the online 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. Sharing video is also easy with Wi–Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras, which record video using the easy–to–share MP4 format. Enhanced Wi–Fi® makes posting in real time possible, so you can keep everyone up to date with photos and video even as events unfold. Wi–Fi® technology also allows you to transfer images to other Wi–Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras or print your photos directly to a PictBridge (Wireless LAN) certified printer.

    Compatibility with Canon Connect Station CS100

    The PowerShot SX530 HS camera is fully compatible with Canon's brand new photo and video storage device: the Canon Connect Station CS100. By simply tapping with NFC, photos and videos are wirelessly transferred to the Connect Station CS100, where up to 1 TB of hard drive space (has the capacity for approximately 150,000 photos or approximately 70 hours of video content)* and simple menus make them easy to store, manage and sort by albums, date or device name. From there, images and videos can be viewed in Full HD on an HDTV (via an HDMI cable), sent to compatible wireless printers, viewed/uploaded/downloaded from smartphones and tablets or PCs, and shared with other Connect Stations and on social networking sites.

    16.0 Megapixel* High–Sensitivity CMOS sensor

    The PowerShot SX530 HS camera employs a 16.0 Megapixel* High–Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which delivers state–of–the– art imaging performance and is optimized for use in compact cameras. Utilizing a sophisticated light–capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for improved high ISO capture with reduced noise. It is also a high–speed design, capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, enabling faster continuous shooting and faster autofocus.

    DIGIC 4+ Image Processor

    The Canon DIGIC 4+ Image Processor powers the PowerShot SX530 HS camera's advanced functions and capabilities, including Hybrid Auto, Creative Shot, and Full HD video shooting at 300p. Its accelerated processing speed creates fast, responsive performance, for a shooting experience that's easy and natural. The DIGIC 4+ Image Processor also enhances image quality in several ways. Processing of high ISO shots has been shortened by approximately 60% compared to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. This significantly reduces noise for brilliant color, smooth gradations, and beautiful detail even in low light. The processor also allows for the integration of electronic Dynamic IS. This advanced system compensates for multiple motion types, effectively preventing angular blur, shift blur, and blur caused by parallel movement and tilt. The result is images that are reliably sharp and clear at all lengths of the camera's powerful zoom. The processor's highly efficient design also extends battery life.

    Full HD Video

    Gorgeous high definition video is yours throughout the camera's impressive zoom range, and starts immediately with a touch of the dedicated movie button. The PowerShot SX530 HS camera captures Full HD video at 30p (selectable for resolution), for notably smooth, lifelike quality that is truly at home even on a large screen HDTV. And now you can record in convenient MP4 format for the easiest online sharing.

    3.0–inch High Resolution (461,000 dots) LCD

    The large, 3.0–inch high–resolution LCD screen makes it easy to both frame and review your shots. A resolution of 461,000 dots makes even the smallest details clear, and images are viewable even from a wide angle, so showing others what you've captured is easy, too.

    Zoom Framing Assist with seek function and enhanced automatic zoom

    With its 50x Optical Zoom lens, the PowerShot SX530 HS camera has the telephoto reach to capture subjects a long distance away. At maximum telephoto, however, it can be challenging to track a moving subject. The Zoom Framing Assist seek function makes it much easier to use the camera's powerful zoom lens. When you press and hold the Zoom Framing Assist button, the camera will automatically zoom out to include a wider angle of view, enabling you to more easily locate your moving subject. Once you find it, releasing the button will cause the lens to return to its original zoom position, intelligently keeping the subject in focus until you're ready to shoot and capture the perfect close–up moment. You can even make zoom adjustments while the button is pressed, with an animated assist frame that makes viewing easy. When the button is released, the lens will return to the adjusted zoom position. And with the Zoom Framing Assist Lock, the camera will lock onto and automatically track a subject, intelligently keeping them in the center of the frame until you're ready to capture the perfect close–up shot.
