This 10.1-megapixel digital point-and-shoot camera from Canon has an impressive 12x zoom, which is the equivalent of a 28-336-millimeter telephoto zoom lens on a 35-millimeter camera.
With numerous forms of image stabilization, which is also employed during the 720p HD video recording, and hundreds of useful shooting settings, the camera is an excellent all-around performer.
The ELPH 520 HS is equipped with a 10.1-megapixel picture sensor that can shoot photographs with a maximum resolution of 3648 x 2736 pixels and movies in 720p. This provides you with the opportunity to expand or crop a piece of your photograph for printing or publishing on the internet, among other things.
In low light, with the camera shaking, or when shooting a fast-moving subject, the Intelligent IS image stabilization technology guarantees that photographs and videos are as clear as possible and are not blurred by the camera.
It will assess the scene and the subjects included within it in order to decide the most appropriate stabilization approach to use for every particular situation.
View your photographs on the 3.0″ PureColor LCD display, which may assist you in composing your shots before you shoot and reviewing them afterward – even in direct sunshine. You may also notice that the photographs you take have better color representation and a more accurate portrayal of the scene.
With innovative features such as Smart Shutter, Face ID, and Tracking AF, it will be simpler to snap the photographs you desire without having to touch a button on your phone or camera.
Smart Shutter allows you to take images just by strolling within the camera’s field of vision – the camera will take a shot as soon as it detects your face.
Simply use the Face Detection function to identify and register your face, as well as the faces of up to 12 other people. The Tracking AF option, which tracks your chosen target and keeps them in focus no matter where they move inside the frame, may also be used for more precise shots.
