PowerShot SX520 HS

High-End, Advanced Digital Cameras

Overview

Remarkable Zoom. Amazing Power.
Imagine 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. Truly impressive quality is yours with every shot – even in low light – thanks to a 16.0 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and Canon DIGIC 4+ Image Processor that together create the Canon HS SYSTEM. Use this sophisticated point-and-shoot wherever you go to capture memories with the quality and versatility they deserve.
