Canon announced the PowerShot SX620 HS digital camera for users looking for a convenient, low-cost, easy-to-carry compact camera capable of producing high-quality photos and videos. This new camera boasts a 20.2 Megapixel CMOS imaging sensor and a powerful 25X Optical Zoom lens (25-625mm equivalent) in a form factor that will easily fit in a pocket or purse, making it an ideal “throw-in-the-bag” camera for spontaneous moments.
The camera’s built-in wireless capabilities make it convenient to share images and videos on the go, and its powerful 25X optical zoom lens makes it ideal for those wanting to zoom in and out of the action. The Canon PowerShot SX620 HS digital camera is a great companion for those looking to visually document their daily adventures and easily share their experiences as they explore new places and do new things.
As the successor to Canon’s PowerShot SX610 HS (now discounted) compact digital camera, the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS digital camera mainly adds longer zoom and also features:
- An Intelligent Image Stabilizer (IS) that helps optimize image stabilization for virtually shake-free images in a variety of shooting conditions
- Built-in Wi-Fi and Near Field Communication (NFC) to allow for easy sharing and transferring of images and videos to a personal computer or other compatible devices such as the Canon Connect Station CS 100
- 20.2 megapixel CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4+ Image Processor to help deliver stunning image quality, even in low light
- The ability to capture spectacular 1080p Full HD video
- Large 3.0-inch (approximately 922,000 dots) LCD to allow for easy viewing, even from a wide angle
- Hybrid Auto mode that allows for recording up to four seconds of video before each image that is captured, then automatically combines each clip and still into a quick video recap of the day
- Smart AUTO mode which intelligently selects the proper settings for the camera based on pre-defined shooting situations to help create the best possible image
- Creative Shot mode that uses composition, color and lighting from an original image to create unique images with an artistic flair
- An Auto Zoom feature that, when enabled, makes the camera automatically zoom in on subjects and help keep them in focus
