Canon ELPH 530 HS Overview

  • 1Description

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 HS Digital Camera (Black) is a fashionably slender and compact digital camera, measuring only 0.8" thick, but all business on the inside. Functional and intuitive design surround the Canon HS System; the perfect pairing between a high-sensitivity 10.1MP CMOS sensor and the speedy DIGIC 5 Image Processor. The sensor and the image processor together deliver amazing low-light performance. The 28mm wide angle lens with 12x optical zoom is further aided by a sophisticated Optical Image Stabilizer which automatically chooses from six different modes to give you the best image stabilization for whatever shooting situation you're facing.

An improved Smart AUTO feature further assists by selecting proper camera settings based on a wide range of 58 predefined shooting situations. A Face ID function also helps to capture the perfect exposure and focus for portraiture using a series of pre-registered faces. Smooth Skin and Soft Focus scene modes continue to develop portraiture by helping to diminish blemishes and adding a smoothing glow to your subjects.

In addition to still image performance, full HD 1080p video is supported along with stereo sound, a dedicated movie button, and playback on an HDTV via the HDMI output.

Built-in Wi-Fi allows you to wirelessly share your images and video through Canon iMAGE GATEWAY on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube or to a PC. Upload virtually anywhere on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch device with the free Canon CameraWindow app, and even share images between Wi-Fi enabled PowerShot cameras.

    Canon ELPH 530 HS Reviews

    PowerShot ELPH 530 HS Digital Camera (Black) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent camera for average person I am a semi pro photographer that bought this for when I don't feel like carrying an SLR.. like on vacation. I already have a Canon Vixia HF20 to carry around, but stills on it only run 3mp. Its a good little camera with LOTs of features... so if you are just going to point and shoot, buy a less expensive camera. Pros: Lots of function, WiFi transfers work great Cons: The touch screen requires way too much pressure to make it work.... which kind of makes the Touch to shoot option useless. Lots of function - for those wanting a simple camera this is going to create confusion. It gets REAL grainy at the max zoom - at least for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and Compact It takes nice pictures, there is little lag between pictures, and has some nice additional camera modes although i will probably never use them. It'a a point and shoot camera, so I point it at stuff and click, a photo. For that, it is excellent. If you want to fiddle with it you can select the focus with the touch screen too, which is nice. Not much to complain about, navigating the touch screen is a little cumbersome, have to delete one at a time, but it's a small screen so can't say that out of line with reasonable expectations. I bout it for cheap, less than $120, and for a camera that price it deserves like 6 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, simple If you know someone who really doesn't want to deal with controls and such, this is a great camera. Very tiny, takes surprisingly good photos, you can shut off the built in flash easily enough, and connects up easily to a Mac if you use the enclosed solutions disk as a coaster. The WiFi is painful to set up and doesn't work well; it is insanely poorly designed, IMHO. The Canon solutions disk apparently can only be installed on a Mac if you create a new account with admin privs to do the installation (and that was painful to learn). Their software is rubbish anyway. The camera, in short, is quite nice, much higher quality photos than expected; the software, not so much. There is surprisingly little lag time. The display could be better at registering your finger clicks but it's usable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Good Camera I've only had this little jewel for two weeks. It feels really good in your hands and takes very nice photographs. I read some negative opinions in other reviews; though, respectfully, I think they were written by inexperienced people. The touch screen seems fine too. I haven't tried the wifi option yet. The video is also excellent. The shutter response is good, as is the auto focus. Once the wrist strap is attached you can hold the camera in the palm of your hand, very convenient and good for candid shots of your children. The price I paid at B&H was really inexpensive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from that's the most useful camera for me I have few Canon cameras, 7D is big not so convenient in carrying with you all the time. Ixus 65 is very good, but can't compare with this one. it's very good for video as well. the only short coming is the battery is too smaller and won't last as long as the Ixus 65. when you sell this products if can provide one spare battery, then I don't need to worry running short of battery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I ordered this for work for our department - this was referred to us by a photographer. We wanted something that would take clear, crisp images of small images. This is small and compact as well as easy to use and great picture quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This camera had bad reviews but I decided since it was made by Canon and it was only $$ that I would try it out, and man am I lucky I picked this camera. The negative reviews aren't true, the touch screen is fine, the pictures look real nice, and the video is amazing. The only bad thing for me is that you have to use a Micro sd card which is kind of inconvenient but I can get passed it. I really do believe this is an excellent camera and I would for sure recommend it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Camera This camera has an incredible range, but fits in a pocket. Takes great photos at several different resolutions. The included stylus makes it easy to make changes on the touchscreen.
