Detailed Features

Take a look at a more detailed look into the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS

Versatile zoom power

Capture everything from superbly detailed long-range close ups to great group shots and stunning landscapes with this compact bridge camera. It packs a huge 42x optical zoom in a small, lightweight body that's easy to carry wherever you go.

Effortlessly keep track of your subject

It's simple to keep track of distant subjects at high zoom. Simply press a button and Zoom Framing Assist quickly zooms the camera out of the scene - so you can relocate your subject - zooming back the moment it's released. Improved Auto mode automatically zooms out when the subject leaves the frame and helps you keep your subject at a preset size.

Comfortable, steady shooting

Designed with your comfort in mind, you can enjoy steadier shots even at full zoom and shoot comfortably for longer periods thanks to a refined ergonomic grip.

Clear shots in any light

Day or night your images will be just as you remember them. Canon's HS System excels in low light so it's easy to capture the real atmosphere of precious moments without using flash or a tripod. 16.0 Megapixels mean you can enjoy exceptional quality, detailed images and poster-sized prints.

Sharp results every time

There's no need to worry about camera shake ruining your results thanks to an intelligent optical Image Stabilizer. This camera automatically adapts and ensures sharp, detailed photos and videos even if you're shooting at full zoom or handheld in low light.

Stunning images with ease

Shooting great photos or movies is effortless with Smart Auto, which chooses the perfect camera settings for you - whatever the scene. Hybrid Auto creates a fun HD (720p) movie summary of all the day's shots for you to enjoy.

Always capture the moment

Life is fleeting. Don't miss a single precious moment and capture stunning fast action with this highly responsive camera, which features high-speed continuous shooting.

Play with your creativity

Surprise family and friends with your creative flair. Creative Shot intelligently captures six images of the same subject with various artistic effects. Or explore a range of creative modes - from adding a fish eye effect to making scenes in stills or movies look like miniature scale models.

Enhance your skills

Explore the creative possibilities of Full Manual control. Experiment with light entering the camera to enhance your photographic skills and take your creativity to the next level.

Realistic movies at your fingertips

Making great movies is easy. With one touch of a button you can shoot superb Full HD movies at 30fps with stereo sound. Shoot on the move and you can still enjoy superb, sharp results.
