Canon's Powershot SX230 HS Digital Camera (Black) adds a new twist to the feature-packed PowerShot cameras: built-in GPS that will automatically tag your photos with time and location. It also offers a full set of photographic goodies in a very small package (4.1 x 2.4 x 1.3"/10.5 x 6.1 x 3.3 cm and weighing in at just 6.88 oz/195 g)--a 12.1MP CMOS high resolution sensor, a super-zoom 14x wide-angle 28-392mm lens (equivalent in 35mm format), and full 1920 x 1080 HD video with stereo sound, for starters.

It's also got the advanced HS system delivering clear, sharp photos with detail and nuance in low light, with high or low ISO images. Optical image stabilization keeps away the shaky pictures and video, and Smart AUTO recognizes and sets optimal exposure, shutter and focus settings for 32 predefined shooting situations. The Super Slow Motion Movie mode records video at 240fps for a very slow motion playback, and the High-Speed Burst mode allows you to shoot still photos at up to 8.1fps.

A large range of creative effects is available, including fisheye effect, miniature effect (stills and video), toy camera effect that creates a vignette similar to pinhole cameras, monochrome, super vivid, color accent, color swap (pick one color in a photo and replace that color with another of your choice), long shutter to blur moving objects for artistic effect, and many more. One of the most convenient features is the Movie Digest Mode, which will automatically record a short video clip (up to approximately 4 seconds) every time you shoot a still image. The camera will then combine an entire day's worth of clips into a single video--no editing required.

Experience the Power

The Canon HS SYSTEM takes the frustration out of low light shooting. The system delivers clear, blur-free shots with all the ambiance intact, and frees you from the sometimes unwanted effects of using the flash. Beautiful low light shots are possible at both low and high ISO speeds, and the dynamic range is expanded to retain maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in a compact PowerShot. The first is the 12.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, which positions the light-receiving surface for optimal light reception. More light means clearer, blur-free images with plenty of detail and nuance, even in dark areas. Working together with the CMOS sensor to deliver the HS SYSTEM is Canon's advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise and delivers high speed image processing.

Memorable Moments in Spectacular Full HD

Experiencing the brilliance of Full 1080p HD video in a Canon PowerShot digital camera has never been easier. You'll be able to record everyday moments in amazing life-like realism at a push of a button and you won?t have to worry about shaky footage because Dynamic IS will help keep your videos steady!

The Ideal Travel Companion

The new PowerShot SX230 HS digital camera is the first PowerShot digital camera to come equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS)* technology. Now you can travel the world and let the camera automatically record the locations and local times of your stills and videos for you to vividly remember time and time again! You can also maximize the usefulness of this GPS technology by using the special bundled Map Utility software that makes sharing the memories of your worldly adventures very fun. Besides displaying all your photos' locations on a world map, the SX230 HS digital camera's GPS system can also track your route from photo to photo-a great way to visualize how much you've traveled during a particular trip! You can also create and share custom maps-like a personal mini-travel guide!-with friends and family members to give them ideas on what to see and do when they visit a particular destination.

Incredible Zooming Power

A powerful 14x Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer and a 28mm Wide-Angle lens provides a wide range of shooting possibilities that are great for traveling and everyday photography. The versatile 14x Optical Zoom will let you get the shot you want, whether it's a close-up or a subject that's far away. An ultra wide lens will let you photograph large groups, beautiful landscape and tall buildings, while the Optical Image Stabilizer will help keep images steady and clear.
