Canon SX420 IS overview

  • 1Description

Blending a truly long-reaching zoom with apt imaging performance, the black Canon PowerShot SX420 IS Digital Camera is further characterized by its versatility and ergonomic handling. The 20.0MP 1/2.3" CCD image sensor pairs with the DIGIC 4+ image processor to enable high-resolution stills shooting and HD 720p video recording at 25 fps, while the expansive 42x optical zoom lens ranges from wide-angle to super telephoto perspectives to suit working in a variety of environments. An Intelligent IS image stabilization system benefits the lens' reach, as well as when working in difficult lighting conditions, by minimizing the appearance of camera shake for sharper imagery. For composing imagery or reviewing your photos and movies, a rear 3.0" 230k-dot LCD is available and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC further permits wireless sharing of imagery directly to your smartphone or tablet.

A 20.0MP 1/2.3" CCD image sensor pairs with the DIGIC 4+ image processor to realize notable image clarity and sensitivity to ISO 1600 to support working in a variety of conditions. The sensor/processor combination also enables up to 2.2 fps continuous shooting to benefit working with moving subjects.
An expansive 42x optical zoom lens offers a 24-1008mm equivalent focal length range, covering wide-angle to super telephoto perspectives. This extensive reach is complemented by a versatile Intelligent IS image stabilization system that minimizes the appearance of camera shake for both stills and video shooting:

Stills:
  • 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.


Video:
  • 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 discernible 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.
In addition to stills, HD 720p video can also be recorded at 25 fps as well as VGA 640 x 480 recording at 30 fps.
Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows you to wirelessly share your photos and movies with a linked smartphone or tablet as well as remotely control the camera from the mobile device by using the Camera Connect app. A dedicated Wi-Fi button is also featured on the camera body to expedite the process of connecting with a smartphone or tablet and sharing imagery between devices.
A 3.0" 230k-dot rear LCD monitor is available for composing imagery, navigating the menu, or reviewing photos and videos.
Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on recognized shooting situations.
A variety of Shooting Modes can be used to optimize the camera's settings based on a specific scene type you are working in, including Low Light, Portrait, and Fireworks modes.
Scene Modes, such as Fisheye Effect, Toy Camera Effect, and Monochrome, help to creatively adjust the look of your photographs in-camera.
ECO Mode intelligently reduces your power consumption, aiding in producing longer battery life for more shooting time.

Canon SX420 IS reviews

PowerShot SX420 IS Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would recommend to a friend. I love my new camera. The automatic functions are much better than previous point and shoot cameras I've used. I haven't found a lighting situation it couldn't handle yet. The zoom and the optics are really impressive and with a tripod the possibilities are endless. For the price range I feel like I got more than I expected. The only complaint I have is I wish it had a microphone jack for shooting video using an external microphone but that's not a feature most people would miss in this price range. I highlight recommend this product. Oh yeah, it's pretty sexy looking too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet! Well - it was either buy a new cell phone with a camera or buy a camera. At 20 megapixels this camera was the obvious choice for a non-photographer like myself. It has enough settings that my husband can do close-up shots and I can photograph my art. I purchased the bundle which came with a camera bag and a 16 GB Ultra SD card. The lens cap attaches to the camera body lanyard style - and there is also a wrist lanyard. This is good for a occasional photographer like myself and is better (and more affordable) than any phone on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera : From "Novice to Pro" This is a Great camera for any user, from the Novice to the Pro . Works very well with ALL type of photos, Social media to taking Professional pictures. The 42x Optical ZOOM is unreal for taking pics far away and still keeping high quality definion..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Canon PowerShot SX420 Review Replaced previous Canon Power Shot camera where the battery compartment leaked and made the camera un-repairable. Rechargeable battery has short life. Photos unremarkable compared to good smart phone lenses. Good handling and features for experienced photographers for reasonable price. Satisfied with camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Digital Point & Shoot I've been buying Canon products for years. This is probably our 10th camera purchase. We purchase and use Canon cameras both for personal and work uses. This is an improvement from the previous model I owned. The menu is much more intuitive. So far so good.
