Long Zoom Cameras

MSRP: $279.99

Features

25x Optical Zoom (25–625mm)

With the PowerShot SX620 HS camera in hand, you’ll be impressed at the zooming capabilities of this slim, compact digital camera. The amazing 25x Optical Zoom lens packs high zoom power into a slim design to get you down on the field, high atop a skyscraper, deep into a landscape and much more. The camera’s advanced technology helps ensure that images and videos are captured in outstanding quality, with Intelligent IS that chooses the stabilization method that matches the shooting conditions, so images are virtually shake-free in a wide variety of situations.


Intelligent IS

Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies a suitable shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make effective IS settings to help capture a steady image.

Still Image Shooting
 
Normal IS
Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills.
 
Panning IS
Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere with desired camera movement.
     
Macro (Hybrid) IS
Corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically occurs in macro (close-up) shooting.
 
Tripod
When tripod use is detected, the Image Stabilizer is stopped because it is not needed.
     
Video Recording
 
Dynamic IS
Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking.
 
Powered IS
Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified.
     
Macro (Hybrid) IS
Corrects for motion blur that is likely to occur when shooting video while walking. Also compensates for the shift-type camera shake common in macro shooting.
 
Active Tripod IS
When shooting video while using a tripod, the image stabilization is active to compensate for slight camera shake.

Easily post your images to select social networking and media sites – Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube, Flickr®, and Google Drive – through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY directly from your PowerShot SX620 HS camera, or save them to the online photo album to share anytime, anywhere. The camera can also connect directly to both compatible iOS® and Android devices*, and upload images via the Canon Camera Connect app* without a computer. You can control the destination of your uploads to share with everyone or to select groups, and even add comments. Sharing video is also easy with Wi-Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras, which record video using the easy-to-share MP4 format. Wi-Fi® capability makes posting in real time possible, so you can keep everyone up to date with photos and video even as events unfold. Wi-Fi® technology also allows you to transfer images to other Wi-Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras or print your photos directly to a PictBridge (Wireless LAN) certified printer. Thanks to the newly added Wi-Fi Button, you can now connect in both Shooting mode and Playback mode for quick and easy operation. You can even turn on the camera and connect at the same time with just one press of the button, helping you get right to sharing and managing your files when you like.

 

 


 


Built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) Technology

 

PowerShot digital cameras with built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) technology provide fast connectivity with a single tap. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android device**, and the Camera Connect app* will launch automatically for quick, easy sharing of your images. Built-in NFC technology also makes it simple to install the app. If the app hasn't been installed yet, once you touch the devices together for the first time, the download screen will display automatically. Simply touch the camera against an NFC-equipped device with the Canon Camera Connect app* installed, and a Wi-Fi® connection is established – no camera operations required. Even if your camera is off, NFC turns the camera on and establishes the connection (confirming the camera’s nickname and privacy settings before the first connection is required).

20.2 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor

The PowerShot SX620 HS camera employs a 20.2 Megapixel*** High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which delivers powerful imaging performance and is optimized for use in compact cameras. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for high ISO capture with reduced noise. It's also incredibly fast, capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, as well as enabling fast continuous shooting and fast autofocus.

*** Image processing may cause a decrease in the number of pixels.



DIGIC 4+ Image Processor

The Canon DIGIC 4+ Image Processor powers the PowerShot SX620 HS camera’s advanced functions and capabilities. Its accelerated processing speed creates fast, responsive performance, for a shooting experience that can be smooth and natural. The DIGIC 4+ Image Processor also helps enhance image quality by shortening the processing of high ISO shots by almost 60% compared to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. This helps reduce noise for brilliant color, smooth gradations and beautiful detail even in low light.

The PowerShot SX620 HS camera is designed to make beautiful, creative video capture easy and fun. Image quality is luminous and lifelike in 1080p Full HD with a smooth frame rate of up to 30p. MP4 format, ideal for sharing and playing on mobile devices, is also available. Dynamic IS offers image stabilization that can correct strong camera shake that can occur when you shoot while running or walking backward.

The large, 3.0-inch high-resolution LCD screen makes it easy to both frame and review your shots. A resolution of approximately 922,000 dots helps make even small details clear, and images are viewable even from a wide angle, so showing others what you've captured is easy, too.

Hybrid Auto records up to four seconds of video every time you shoot a still image, then automatically joins the clips and pictures* into a video that captures the essence of special days: vacations, important occasions or any time you’re shooting many shots in a day. In this mode, Hybrid Auto automatically recognizes the scene and optimizes camera settings for incredibly high image quality. The resulting 720p HD video is properly exposed, crisp and steady, so your “highlight reel” is stunningly beautiful.

* Pictures can be withheld from the resulting video via menu settings.

Smart AUTO

 

Smart AUTO is a sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. It automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using predefined shooting situations*. The camera then makes optimal settings to help facilitate incredible image capture, whether you’re shooting stills or video. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away.

 

* 32 predefined shooting situations for still images, and 21 predefined shooting situations for videos.

Not only is the PowerShot SX620 HS camera a stylish powerhouse, the camera also enables you to easily create artistic images with Creative Shot mode. In Creative Shot mode, the camera captures the original composition, automatically produces and saves five additional copies of the image and uses advanced Canon technologies to apply any of 46 filter options based on the individual scene, subject and exposure. Filter choices are grouped into Retro, Monochrome, Special and Natural categories to make exploring the world of artistic photography fun and easy, or you can simply select Auto to access the full range of effects. With Creative Shot mode, the result can lead to stunning artistic photos that are ideal for sharing.

Now, beautifully framed shots using the powerful 25x Optical Zoom are as easy as pressing the Auto Zoom button. With Auto Zoom, the camera automatically determines the correct size and framing by detecting the number of subjects. The system also detects faces that are too small, then zooms in to the proper length. Auto Zoom is a great feature for spontaneous everyday shooting, and especially useful for times when someone else (even a child) is using your camera, for instance at a tourist spot.
