Along with its impressively slim profile and stylish new design, the PowerShot SX610 HS camera boasts a powerful array of advanced capabilities.

Image quality is beautifully sharp and resonant, even when you're shooting in low light, thanks to the 20.2 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4+ Image Processor, which together create the Canon HS SYSTEM. And just press the dedicated movie button to capture vividly lifelike 1080p Full HD video. For documenting and sharing your life, the PowerShot SX610 HS camera is the perfect partner.

18x Optical Zoom
The powerful 18x Optical Zoom range on the PowerShot SX610 HS camera is ideal for capturing memories of kids' achievements on the sporting field, recitals, plays and concerts – all those times when your access to the action is limited. From landscapes and wildlife to city scenes and more, this camera has you covered – all while fitting in your pocket. Zooming action is quick and precise, and genuine Canon optics help ensure brilliant clarity. Chromatic aberration is compensated across the entire range, and the lens's high optical resolving power works with the camera's high-resolution sensor and advanced image stabilization systems to produce clear, sharp, beautifully detailed images at any zoom length.

Intelligent IS
It's easy to capture clear, steady images, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. 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. Icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you're shooting still images or video.
