Canon SX230 HS Features

  • The Canon HS system delivers clear, blur-free shots with all the ambiance intact and frees you from the sometimes unwanted effects of using the flash. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in a compact PowerShot
  • The first is the 12.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, which positions the light-receiving surface for optimal light reception. More light means clearer, blur-free images with plenty of detail and nuance, even in dark areas
  • Working together with the CMOS sensor to deliver the HS system is Canon's advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise and delivers high speed image processing
  • Experiencing the brilliance of Full 1080p HD video in a Canon PowerShot ELPH has never been easier. You'll be able to record everyday moments in amazing life-like realism at a push of a button and you won't have to worry about shaky footage because Dynamic IS will help keep your videos steady
  • The new PowerShot SX230 HS digital camera is the first PowerShot digital camera to come equipped with GPS technology. Now you can travel the world and let the camera automatically record the locations and local times of your stills and videos for you to vividly remember time and time again
  • You can also maximize the usefulness of this GPS technology by using the special bundled Map Utility software that makes sharing the memories of your worldly adventures very fun
  • Besides displaying all your photos' locations on a world map, the SX230 HS digital camera's GPS system can also track your route from photo to photo-a great way to visualize how much you've traveled during a particular trip
  • You can also create and share custom maps-like a personal mini-travel guide!-with friends and family members to give them ideas on what to see and do when they visit a particular destination
  • A powerful 14x Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer and a 28mm Wide-Angle lens provides a wide range of shooting possibilities that are great for traveling and everyday photography
  • An ultra wide lens will let you photograph large groups, beautiful landscape and tall buildings, while the Optical Image Stabilizer will help keep images steady and clear
  • The PowerShot SX230 HS digital camera takes the quality of your still images and videos to a whole new level - automatically. The camera's advanced Smart AUTO system detects a wealth of information about the scene you're shooting, then automatically selects the optimal settings for you
  • Now with an expanded range of 32 shooting scenarios, the camera handles a wide variety of situations, freeing you up to concentrate on composing your shot and capturing the moment you're looking for
  • Using the Movie Digest Mode, you can have the camera automatically record a short video clip (up to approx 4 sec) every time you shoot a still image. The camera will then combine an entire day's worth of clips into a single video. No editing required - Movie Digest Mode does all the work
  • Add some vintage nostalgia with Toy Camera Effect. Toy Camera Effect recreates this look by darkening the edges to make them appear as if they were photographed through a pinhole lens and adding contrast
  • The PowerShot SX230 HS digital camera's high resolution (461,000 dots) 3.0-inch wide PureColor System LCD gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images
  • This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient. Clear and bright, it features Night Display for easy viewing in low light
