Canon PowerShot Elph 530 HS
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 is a small, lightweight compact camera suitable for taking quality pictures and videos on the go. A 28 mm Wide Angle Lens enables the photographer to capture more “picture” in the frame than a smaller lens, while the Optical Image Stabilizer helps reduce motion blur. On the back of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 HS is a 3.2 inch wide LCD screen to view the images and to select different settings.
With the Smart AUTO setting function, the camera selects the proper settings to make the image come out the best possible way, and the new Face ID function allows the camera to recognize when it is seeing a person’s face and to focus on it, reducing any out of focus blurring. However, in addition to the AUTO function, this camera also has a manual function, allowing the photographer to get more creative and artsy with the photos if so desired. In the manual function, the photographer is able to adjust the shutter speed, aperture, ISO and other particular shooting specifications.
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 HS has a low-light function that enables the photographer to take pictures in areas that are not very well lit, and still be able to depend on the images coming out sufficient. A 12x Optical Zoom allows the photographer to be quite a ways away from the subject, zoom in, and not have a blurry image. The camera has a decently sized internal memory, but also accepts a microSD, a microSDHC, or a micro SDXC memory card of any memory size.
Another aspect of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 50 HS is that it has the capability of taking good quality videos. All videos are taken in 1080p Full HD, and anyone can hook the camera up to a HDTV with an HDMI cable to playback the movies. Uploading the videos to the computer first is an option, but definitely not mandatory.
One of the most unique things about the Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 HS is that it has built-in WiFi. Once the photographer takes a picture, they do not have to wait to get home and upload it to the computer to share it; directly from the camera itself, images can be posted on Twitter, Facebook, or any other site through the Canon CameraWindow App. A one-time registration for this app enables the photographer to use it for the life of the camera.
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 comes in either black or white along with a battery pack, charger, and cable needed to connect the camera to the computer. It provides the photographer with a nice portable and lightweight camera to take good pictures with.
This is one of the cameras that I have it narrowed down to for my hubby’s Christmas gift! I think that I’m going to go for it!
This looks like an amazing camera! I am totally into checking out new cameras and seeing what they can do Huge fan of Canon too!
I love how small it is and that wi-fi feature is amazing!
Looks like a great one. I always trust Canon cameras! I love that it’s small and easy to take anywhere. Sometimes the DSLR is just too heavy and big!!!
Having WIFI enabled on the camera sounds awesome. That would definitely save some time for sure!
I need a new camera, this sounds great. Love that it has full manual mode!
I LOVE that this has built-in WiFi, genius! This would be a great gift for several of my family members!
I’m a Nikon girl and can sometimes be pretty snobby when it comes to my camera. But with that said, I’ve been checking into some smaller compact camera options for quick trips out and about. I love that you have full manual control with this camera. Sounds like it’s a great option for a Christmas gift!
although I now have a lovely DSLR camera, I sometimes miss my lightweight point and shoot for quick and easy snapshots! This looks like a great camera!
It’s so shiny! That looks like a great camera, I’m tempted to get it for my in-laws.
Great review. Thanks for sharing the info.
this looks like a great camera, I love the large screen great for my bad eyes!
Looks like an awesome camera. I desperately need a new one. My husband bought me a video recorder and says, “Oh but it can take pictures too” and my mother-in-law was like, “Stop complaining, that’s what you asked for”. I don’t mean to complain, but it isn’t what I asked for. And he gets mad that I never use it, but it’s not what I wanted so I don’t feel bad. He said he won’t buy me a camera until I use it, well when I come home with one I bought myself that’s why. LOL
That screen is jumbo, I love it!
I’m needing a new camera, this one sounds perfect! I love the large display and that it’s wifi capable. Thanks for sharing!
I love my Canon DSLR but this would be fabulous to keep with me in my purse or diaper bag. I love how the back is nothing but screen. That’s nice!
I’m looking for a camera, this looks like a great choice! Thanks for the information!
This is a nice little camera! We have a little Nikon like this but we don’t like it… looking for a new one.
This Canon PowerShot Elph 530 HS has nice brick design.
