About the Canon SX500 IS

Replacing the SX40 HS, the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS is Canon's new superzoom compact, sporting a 24-720mm (35mm equivalent) f/3.4-5.8 lens-slightly shorter than its predecessor's 35x optic, but with a higher-resolution 16MP sensor. Canon says advances it has made in noise reduction means images will be excellent quality at higher speeds.

Key features: Canon PowerShot SX500 IS

• 30x optical zoom lens starts at 24mm
• 16MP CMOS sensor
• 720p HD Video
• 3-inch, 461k dot LCD monitor
• Smart Auto with 32 predefined shooting situations
• Intelligent IS with 6 image stabilization modes

The Canon PowerShot SX500 offers remarkably improved lag time and high-speed autofocus, so you can capture sports as well as the kids before they run out of the frame. There's also a high-resolution 3-inch 461k dot LCD monitor. A prominent Movie button means less burrowing through menu options when you're ready to shoot video. Video capture is at 720p at 25fps, and the camera is compatible with Apple's iFrame standard for faster downloading compatible Apple and Windows computers.

The Canon PowerShot SX500's 32 scene modes include Smart Auto, which can choose the most appropriate scene. Zoom Framing Assist makes using the zoom lens easier; the camera will automatically zoom out automatically to get up close to moving subjects, then automatically zooms back.

Shooting modes include: Manual exposure, aperture, and shutter-priority and program, Smart Auto, portrait, low light, snow, fireworks, creative filters, iFrame mode, Discreet mode (disables flash and all camera sounds), Live View control, face self timer, and more.
