About the Canon SX520 HS

The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS Black Digital Camera is used for capturing beautiful scenic panoramas, elusive wildlife, an athlete's intensity or a child's wonder all from a distance that won't interrupt the action. The PowerShot SX520 HS makes this kind of versatility easy with an incredible 42x Optical Zoom and 24mm Wide-Angle lens. This camera was born to zoom, with features and systems designed to make high-magnification shooting with advanced Canon optics simple and spectacular. The Optical Image Stabilizer and Intelligent IS keep images clear and steady, while Zoom Framing Assist and a new Advanced Zoom Framing Assist function help you track and capture subjects, follow their movement and keep them in focus - whether you're shooting stills or super-lifelike 1080p Full HD video. And High Speed AF means reduced lag time.

42x Optical Zoom and 24mm Wide-Angle Lens
There's a whole new world to see when you step up to PowerShot SX520 HS. Experience breathtaking quality and unlimited versatility with the camera's 42x Optical Zoom (24-1008mm) and 24mm Wide-Angle lens. Say goodbye to the frustration of shooting with a camera that keeps you stuck in one place. This powerful zoom lets you capture the proud smile of a graduate from the back row of an auditorium, architectural details atop an imposing structure and memorable candids of children and pets without interrupting the scene. Advanced Canon optics bring depth and resonance to shots at any zoom length, giving you the freedom to go beyond the ordinary to create images and preserve memories any way you want.
16.0 Megapixel Image Sensor
The PowerShot SX400 IS camera's 16.0 Megapixel CCD sensor delivers impressive photos with fine detail and brilliant color. The high resolution ensures superb image quality even when cropping or making very large prints.

DIGIC 4+ Image Processor
The Canon DIGIC 4+ Image Processor powers the PowerShot SX400 IS camera's advanced functions and capabilities. 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: 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.

Canon HS SYSTEM helps provide excellent low-light performance
The compact PowerShot SX520 HS gives you the power to capture beautifully detailed, naturally lit images even in low light - reducing the need for flash and the occasionally unwelcome effects it produces. That's because the camera's 16.0 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor works with the camera's DIGIC 4+ Image Processor to create the Canon HS SYSTEM, specifically engineered for spectacular low-light performance. With the Canon HS SYSTEM.

Capture stunning 1080p Full HD video with a dedicated movie button, plus zoom while shooting
Simply touch the dedicated movie button on the PowerShot SX520 HS to start recording video in 1080p Full HD that is breathtakingly vivid and realistic. You're free to use the full range of the zoom in movie mode to get the video you want. You can also view and share your video on an HDTV to enjoy. Intelligent IS
The latest advance in Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS, analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation. 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.
Normal IS
Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills.
Panning IS
Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere with desired camera movement
Macro (Hybrid) IS
Corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically occurs in macro (close-up) shooting.
Tripod
When tripod use is detected, the Image Stabilizer is stopped because it is not needed.
Dynamic IS
Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking.
Powered IS
Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified.
Macro (Hybrid) IS
Corrects for motion blur that is likely to occur when shooting video while walking. Also compensates for the shift-type camera shake common in macro shooting.
Active Tripod IS
When shooting video while using a tripod, the image stabilization is active to compensate for slight camera shake.

Zoom Framing Assist with seek function and enhanced automatic zoom
With its 42x Optical Zoom lens, the PowerShot SX520 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. 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.

High Speed AF
The PowerShot SX400 IS camera is equipped with Canon's latest advancements in autofocus (AF) technology. Working on multiple fronts, Canon has developed AF that is significantly faster than on previous models, for a shooting experience that's spontaneous and natural. The extremely responsive High Speed AF lets you capture great shots as they happen, with reduced lag time. Several engineering breakthroughs contributed to this major enhancement to speed. In addition to improved AF algorithms, the camera can process multiple sequences simultaneously and takes advantage of reworked controls between AF and the start of shooting.

Creative Shot mode uses composition, color and lighting from your original image to create unique images with an artistic flair
The Creative Shot mode featured on the PowerShot SX520 HS can help anyone create images with artistic flair. 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.

Secure Enhanced Grip
Canon developed an innovative new grip for the PowerShot SX400 IS, optimized specifically for the camera's powerful zooming capability. The invitingly curved grip fits effortlessly into your hand. Without any strain, your fingers comfortably and naturally reach the shutter, minimizing the potential for shake at long zoom lengths.

Convenient Front Dial
The PowerShot SX520 HS shares a feature with higher end cameras: a convenient front dial. The dial's placement puts important adjustments easily within your reach without releasing your hold on the secure grip, further stabilizing shooting at the camera's long zoom lengths.

Shooting Modes
PowerShot cameras offer shooting modes that make it easy to take impressive photos in a wide range of shooting situations by providing intelligent presets with optimized settings.
