Canon SX530 HS overview

  • 1Description

Combining an expansive zoom lens, high-resolution imaging sensor, and extensive sharing capabilities, the PowerShot SX530 HS is a versatile and convenient point-and-shoot digital camera from Canon. A 16MP High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4+ image processor pair to form the HS SYSTEM, to achieve notable image clarity, especially in dim and difficult lighting conditions, sensitivity to ISO 3200, and a high speed burst rate of 10 fps. Complementing working in a wide variety of situations, a 50x zoom lens provides a 24-1200mm equivalent focal length range, which is further benefitted by Intelligent IS image stabilization to ensure sharp and clear imaging. Beyond shooting capabilities, the SX530 HS is also wirelessly adept, with the ability to transfer imagery directly to mobile devices via Wi-Fi, connect using NFC, and remotely control the camera from linked smartphones or tablets.

Full HD 1080/30p video recording is also supported in addition to still shooting, and easily accessible via a dedicated movie button. Benefitting working with distant moving subjects, Zoom Framing Assist helps to maintain focus and composition when working at longer focal lengths. Hybrid Auto, Smart AUTO, and Creative Shot modes are all available to refine the look of imagery, and a 3.0" 461k-dot LCD screen is incorporated into the ergonomic design for live view monitoring and image playback. Additionally, the SX530 HS is compatible with the optional Connect Station CS100 for automated wireless backing-up, storing, and sharing imagery.

16MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 4+ Image Processor
The 16MP High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor produces high-resolution imagery that, when paired with the DIGIC 4+ image processor, exhibits notable clarity and sensitivity to ISO 3200, as well as a top continuous shooting rate of 10 fps. The sensor and processor work together to create Canon's HS SYSTEM, which is able to produce clear, rich imagery in dimly-lit situations with minimal noise and vivid detail.

Beyond still image recording, the SX530 is also capable of recording full HD 1080p video at 30 fps, which is easily accessible via a dedicated movie button.
50x Optical Zoom Lens
Covering wide-angle to super telephoto perspectives, the 50x optical zoom lens provides a 24-1200mm equivalent focal length range to suite working in nearly any situation. Intelligent IS image stabilization benefits this extensive reach, as well as when working in difficult lighting conditions, by compensating for camera shake for sharper, clearer imagery. Eight distinct stabilization modes are available to best suit different types of shooting:

  • Normal IS corrects for a wide range of common camera movements.
  • Panning IS detects deliberate panning movements and does not compensate for lateral movements to permit desired camera movements.
  • Macro (Hybrid) IS corrects for shift-type camera shake that commonly occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
  • Tripod is a dedicated setting that automatically deactivates IS when the use of a tripod is detected since camera-based stabilization is not needed.

  • Dynamic IS is well-suited to recording at wide-angle focal lengths and reduces unwanted shaking that typically occurs when walking while recording.
  • Powered IS compensates for hand movements that become more visually discernable when working at the telephoto end of the zoom range.
  • Macro (Hybrid) IS minimizes the appearance of shake when walking as well as compensates for shift-type shake that occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
  • Active Tripod IS minimizes the slight amount of shake that can happen when recording video while using a tripod.
Built-In Wi-Fi with NFC and CS100 Compatibility
Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables seamless and instant transferring of photos and videos to mobile devices, home computers, and to select social networking sites. Linking Android devices to the camera is aided through the incorporation of NFC (Near Field Communication), which facilitates connection simply by tapping the two devices together. Additionally, linked mobile devices can also be used to remotely control and release the camera's shutter and display a live view image on the linked device's screen when using the Canon CameraWindow app.

Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity further provide compatibility with the optional Connect Station CS100 for automated wireless transferring and sharing of files.
Other Camera Features
  • A 3.0" 461k-dot LCD monitor is available for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation.
  • High Speed AF utilizes updated algorithms and technologies to benefit subject tracking and overall focusing accuracy and speed.
  • Zoom Framing Assist automatically zooms in or out to keep a subject within the frame and in focus when using longer telephoto focal lengths.
  • Creative Shot modes help to transform your original imagery into creative and unique works using a system of 46 in-camera filters, which are grouped within Retro, Monochrome, Special, and Natural categories Once the original image has been taken, the camera will automatically produce five additional variations using this series of filters.
  • Hybrid Auto will record short video clips prior to recording a still image, and then automatically compile them into one file to produce a highlight reel of a shooting session.
  • Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on recognized shooting situations.

Canon SX530 HS reviews

PowerShot SX530 HS Digital Camera is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my PowerShot by Canon I bought this camera because I dropped my digital camera about a year ago and my iphone takes petty lame photos and only when it is not full. I wanted to take pictures of BIRDS. The zoom is excellent. I can get pictures where the bird completely fills the frame, in focus even through a snow storm. The one drawback, that I read about before I purchased, is that the camera can be turned on inadvertently in it's case. This has resulted in my going to take a picture and finding my camera dead. I am going to carry a spare battery, but in the mean time have had luck by leaving the camera strap hanging out of the edge of the zipped camera bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My PowerShot SX530 Purchased this camera to take along on a busy and moving day-to-day week long vacation and use in situations where I would not want to take along my Canon 60D. The little guy performed excellent inside a major metropolitan U.S. city, on crowded streets, at a MLB ballpark taking action shots, street scape photos as well as travel and scenic shots during our constant moving around the metro area. The PowerShot performed excellent in bight and dim light situations at several museums where flash could not be used and I was awed by the battery life! Another fine Canon camera to add to my already bulging Canon lineup! Don't let the size of this PowerShot influence your decision as the images are awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Starter Camera for Creative Shooting I researched and purchased this camera as a gift for my 10-year-old granddaughter, who is very interested in learning to take photographs outside of the Auto setting. I own Canon's 5D Mark III, but I've spent the past week or so learning and playing with the PowerShot SX530 HS. I think this PowerShot is a terrific starter camera for learning creative photography by shooting in Manual Exposure Mode. It's takes sharp photos, is light (only 1 pound), and will fit her smaller hands very well. Lots of good features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great bridge camera I do a lot of candid photos at events when I don't want to cause disruption with the flash and this allows me to get great zoom photos even if I'm not sitting up front. I also take a lot of photos at my daughter's dance studio and the 10 fps burst mode is really useful - now I can catch multiple moments in the dance routine without worrying that I took the shot a moment too soon or too late. I know the specs indicate a relatively low battery life, but I got almost 1500 pictures on one charge using some of the power saving settings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera, pics, but lacks direct screw in uv filter. The camera's zoom & image stabilizer produce amazing pics, even without a tripod! I would have rated it at 5-stars, but don't care for the lack of thought to make the lens screw-in filter threads at 49.5mm. What's up with that? They do make an adapter that goes on the outside of the lens, and up-sizes it to a 67mm. But if you read the reviews, many claim it's flimsy and comes off easily. Really?? This is a very poor design at best. But the camera itself is a great point and shoot camera with a fabulous 50x zoom that's amazing!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job I bought this Canon to replace an older PowerShot that wasn't performing any more. This one is very easy to use and the wifi capability is excellent in today's world. The camera is easy to work and the pictures are crisp. It does what I was hoping for. On the negative side, the flash has to be manually raised. This is a work camera, so not everyone remembers to do that. The construction is also a little lower than higher end cameras. I knew that going in, but if you aren't a camera aficionado, it might surprise you. The free camera case was nice and very high quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from VERY NICE Camera The only issue i have with this camera is that there are 3 ways to turn it on so when you do turn it off you could accidentally turn it back on when you put it away in your camera bag. The picture quality is very good and the 50x optical zoom is absolutely wounderful!. The only reason I give it a 4 star is the power on issue i mentioned. I have a 60D canon and use this SX530 for personal pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best non-SLR camera I've ever had... I bought this camera for on the go memories. I mainly use an SLR, but bought this one for on the go. I've owned several non-SLR cameras looking for the perfect one... I have found it in this camera. We go to concerts frequently and this camera performed beyond my expectations. It's great for low light events as well as daytime events. The wifi ability to send images straight to your phone is just the icing on the cake. I cannot say enough great things about the SX530! I keep it with me all the time!
