Details from Canon

    18x Optical Zoom

    The powerful 18x Optical Zoom range (35mm equivalent: 25–450mm) on the PowerShot SX610 HS camera is ideal for capturing memories of kids' achievements on the sporting field, recitals, plays and concerts – all those times when your access to the action is limited. From landscapes and wildlife to city scenes and more, this camera has you covered – all while fitting in your pocket. Zooming action is quick and precise, and genuine Canon optics help ensure brilliant clarity. Chromatic aberration is compensated across the entire range, and the lens's high optical resolving power works with the camera's high–resolution sensor and advanced image stabilization systems to produce clear, sharp, beautifully detailed images at any zoom length.

    Intelligent IS

    It's easy to capture clear, steady images, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and active Tripod IS modes. Icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you're shooting still images or video.

    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 Camera Connect app* on your mobile device. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android™ device**, and the Camera Connect 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 Camera Connect app installed, and the Wi–Fi® connection is established 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 – Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube™, Flickr®, and Google Drive™ – 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 Camera Connect 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 SX610 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 smartphones and tablets or PCs, and shared with other Connect Stations.

    20.2 Megapixel* High–Sensitivity CMOS Sensor

    Thee PowerShot SX610 HS camera employs a 20.2 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 SX610 HS camera's advanced functions and capabilities, including Hybrid Auto, Creative Shot, and Full HD video shooting at 30p in the easy–to–share MP4 format. 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 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 shift. 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 SX610 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.

    Creative Shot mode

    In addition to the versatile power of its amazing 18x Optical Zoom, the PowerShot SX610 HS camera also turns out impressive artistic photos with Creative Shot mode. Rather than randomly applying filters, Creative Shot mode takes advantage of advanced Canon technologies to analyze the individual scene, subject and exposure to apply any of 46 filter options. In addition to the original shot, the camera automatically produces and saves five additional variations of the composition. Filter choices are grouped into Retro, Monochrome, Special and Natural categories to make exploring the world of artistic photography fun and easy, or simply select Auto to access the full range of effects. With Creative Shot mode, the result is stunning artistic photos that are perfect for sharing.
