The Canon PowerShot SX520 HS and PowerShot SX400 IS super-zoom, point-and-shoot cameras are designed for versatility and telephoto reach to capture subjects from far away distances.


The PowerShot SX520 HS boasts a 42x optical zoom lens (24–1008mm equivalent) and the Canon HS system producing sharp images and Full HD Video. The PowerShot SX400 IS delivers a 30x optical zoom (24–720mm equivalent) for getting you closer to the action.


PowerShot SX520 HS

The Canon SX520 HS's 42x optical zoom lens uses Canon’s optical image stabilization for steadier shots. The camera also combines a 16 megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and Canon’s Digic 4+ image processor to create the Canon HS System, developed for low-light performance. High Speed AF allows you to achieve fast autofocusing speeds, and the SX520 HS’s advanced zoom framing assist feature controls the lens for you, making it easy to locate the main subject by zooming out, and then zooming back in quickly and automatically for close-ups with face detection where applicable.

There is also a dedicated movie button for recording 1080p Full HD video utilizing the camera’s full 42x optical zoom capability. Additionally, the camera’s Intelligent IS automatically chooses from one of eight modes to help optimize image stabilization for virtually shake-free images in various shooting conditions. 


Other SX520 HS features include: creative shot mode that uses a combination of lighting, color and composition from the original image to create artistic images; Smart Auto technology, which selects 32 predefined scenes for still shots and 21 scenes for video without the need to switch modes; hybrid auto mode, which records stabilized HD video clips (up to four seconds) every time a user shoots a still image, then compiles the clips into a single movie that forms a “highlighted reel” for the day; and a built-in mini HDMI port to connect to an HDTV set. $399.99.
