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 30p. 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.
Canon HS SYSTEM helps provide excellent low-light performance
Canon PowerShot digital cameras give 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 PowerShot SX530 HS camera’s 16.0 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor works with the DIGIC 4+ Image Processor to create the Canon HS SYSTEM, specifically engineered for spectacular low-light performance. With the Canon HS SYSTEM, you’ll experience excellent tracking performance even in low light, and achieve gorgeous still image quality at ISO speeds up to ISO 3200; beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas.
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.
Zoom Framing Assist offers a seek assist function that detects when you’re panning (for instance, to search for the location of a soccer ball) and automatically zooms out to help; stop panning, and the zoom returns to its original position. Zoom Framing Assist keeps your subject’s face the same size in your frame no matter how they move. Tap the Zoom Framing Assist function button to detect your subject’s face. As your subject retreats and advances the camera automatically zooms in and out so their face remains the same size. It’s especially useful for capturing the expressions of fast-moving children. The system has been further enhanced by letting you choose the subject’s size: choices include face, upper body, whole body, manual or off for superior assistance and control. And, for even more convenience, all Zoom Framing Assist functions are also available when shooting video.
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 SX530 HS camera 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.
Hybrid Auto records up to four seconds of video every time you shoot a still image, then automatically joins the clips and pictures into a video that captures the essence of special days: vacations, important occasions, or any time you’re shooting many shots in a day. In this mode, Hybrid Auto automatically recognizes the scene and optimizes camera settings to capture the highest possible image quality. The resulting 1080 HD video is properly exposed, crisp and steady, so your “highlight reel” is stunningly beautiful.
Smart AUTO is a sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. It automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to help ensure the best possible image capture, whether you’re shooting stills or video. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away.
High Speed AF
The PowerShot SX530 HS camera is equipped with Canon’s latest advancements in autofocus (AF) technology. Canon’s advanced AF achieves a significant increase in speed for a shooting experience that’s spontaneous and natural. The remarkably 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.
