The new PowerShot SX30 IS is loaded with new cutting-edge features for creating awesome video. Canon is a leader in technology when it comes to cameras; and, HD video is no exception. The Canon PowerShot SX30 IS is more than competent and boasts FULL HD Video with stereo sound. Great video picture quality and portability bring this new PowerShot to a new level of flexibility.
Our proprietary DIGIC 4 Image Processor is intrinsic to the ultra clear video that you will see. Combine that with 1280x720 resolution, 30 (29.97) frames per second and our HS SYSTEM, and the picture gets even better. Low light, low noise, high quality. Canon's award-winning optics are second-to-none. So, forget about shaky video. Canon built Optical Image Stabilization right into the lens. You get the most stable video, even at long zooms, where it really counts! The PowerShot SX30 IS features Canon's precision 24mm Wide-Angle 35x Optical Zoom Lens that allows you to shoot most scenes from wide-angle to telephoto. It lets you capture more in every frame, so everyone fits in a family gathering shot. When it's time to take a closer look, the Canon Optical Image Stabilizer helps minimize camera shake and reveals almost every detail. The PowerShot SX30 IS sports an f/2.7 aperture, perfect for creating enticing portraits, by drawing attention to the face and blurring the background with its impressively shallow depth-of-field. The large aperture also does more. It lets you capture more nuances in low light shooting by using more of the available light. You'll be ready for anything with a lens aperture larger than even many professional sizes.
Enhance the quality of your moving image with the new stereo sound that offers high quality audio.
The PowerShot SX30 IS is one of the first compact cameras to be equipped with Canon's highly advanced Hybrid IS function, which corrects camera shake from two sources to deliver sharp, blur-free images even when you zoom in close to your subject.
Hybrid IS employs both an angular sensor and an accelerometer, enabling
it to suppress both the blur caused by the angle of the camera and the "shift blur" that happens when your subject moves parallel to
the camera, a problem that is especially noticeable at large zoom factors. 4.5 stops of image correction are enhanced by efficient "shift" type stabilization at close distances for noticeably better hand-held shooting.
Have fun creating your own masterpieces with the help of Canon's new Scene Modes. Miniature Effect creates a fun look for your movie recordings. Take wide-angle videos and make them look like a tabletop miniature of the real thing. You can select a narrow area of focus and blur out the top and bottom making a typical scene look unique like a tabletop model. It works with vertical videos as well!
My Colors gives you a wide variety of coloration options, which will instantaneously change any photo from ordinary to extraordinary.
You have the capability to customize color before and after taking a picture with this feature, as well as the ability to correct individual colors directly on the camera's LCD screen while shooting. Some of the My Colors options include Vivid Red, Vivid Green, Vivid Blue, and making skin tone lighter and darker. The most illustrious part of this feature though is Color Swap and Color Accent. Color Swap allows you to "swap" out one color in a photograph for another. Color Accent makes the color of choice the only color visible while composing the rest of the photo into a black and white snap shot.
The PowerShot SX30 IS gives you many options for Movie Playback. You can start out with the camera's LCD, play on your computer, or easily connect to your HDTV through the built-in HDMI output. Keep your audience interested by deleting unwanted scenes, right in the camera. Easily upload videos to share with family and friends.
