Pairing a high-resolution image sensor and a long-reaching zoom within a compact profile, the black PowerShot SX610 HS Digital Camera from Canon is a versatile point-and-shoot well-suited to everyday shooting. A 20.2MP 1/2.3″ High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor combines with the DIGIC 4+ image processor to form the Canon 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 7.2 fps. An 18x optical zoom lens provides a 25-450mm equivalent focal length range, which is further benefitted by Intelligent IS image stabilization to deliver sharp and clear photos and video in a variety of working situations. Complementing the imaging system is built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, with NFC, for remote control from and wireless transferring to mobile devices.
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, Auto Zoom 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″ 922k-dot LCD screen is incorporated into the ergonomic design for live view monitoring and image playback. Additionally, the SX610 HS is compatible with the optional Connect Station CS100 for automated wireless backing-up, storing, and sharing imagery.
Beyond still image recording, the SX610 HS is also capable of recording full HD 1080p video at 30 fps, which is easily accessible via a dedicated movie button.
Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity further provide compatibility with the optional Connect Station CS100 for automated wireless transferring and sharing of files.
