Surpass Every Expectation

For twelve years ELPH cameras have been coveted icons of design and innovation. Informed by that legacy yet stepping solidly into the future comes the PowerShot ELPH 530 HS. Beautifully sleek, this state-of-the-art camera is ready for the way you live now. Built-in Wi-Fi® lets you share images and beautiful 1080p Full HD videos virtually anywhere, while the 3.2-inch wide touch panel PureColor System LCD makes operation easy and interactive. So slim, it's hard to believe it packs a 28mm Wide-Angle lens with 12x Optical Zoom to capture just the image you want. Image quality is superb, with a 10.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor for the clear low-light imaging of Canon's HS SYSTEM. It also comes equipped with the latest technological advancements like Smart AUTO with Face ID to ensure that every shot you capture is amazing.



A Camera That Fits Your LifestyleBuilt-in Wi-Fi®
Select PowerShot models feature built-in Wi-Fi® wireless technology making captured images and HD videos available easily for effortless sharing to friends and family. Compatible with Wi-Fi® (802.11 b/g/n wireless standard), these cameras can connect with compatible home networks or to wireless access points. You can easily share your images and videos by signing up on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY* -an online service that lets you store images to an online album, and share your images on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Upload images virtually anywhere, via your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch® mobile devices by installing the free Canon CameraWindow† app (The Android app is under development†). This app makes it easy to select and save images stored on your iOS device‡ and upload them to social networking sites, or email. Even without a mobile device, it is possible to send images to a PC, or even transfer images between Wi-Fi® enabled PowerShot cameras.

Slim Design
Perfectly flat and just 0.78 inches thick, the PowerShot ELPH 530 HS digital camera is a testament to fine design's power to thrill.

28mm Wide-Angle Lens with 12x Optical Zoom
You'll love the dynamic excitement the camera's lens brings to your photography. Expansive scenes can now be captured in their entirety thanks to the 28mm Wide-Angle Lens. And the 12x Optical Zoom (35mm equivalent: 28-336mm) lets you access close-ups of distant subjects with all the clarity of Genuine Canon Optics.

Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement.

The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in PowerShot cameras: a high-sensitivity imaging sensor, which is able to capture more light; and the DIGIC Image Processor, which actively reduces noise with high-speed image processing.

Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor
The latest-generation Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor brings phenomenal increases in processing speed and power. Enhancements include improved chip architecture and algorithms, improved noise reduction and enhanced i-Contrast performance. The faster processing speed also results in faster continuous shooting capability. The DIGIC 5 Image Processor also makes possible a new, highly advanced automatic white balance system.

Canon Full HD Video Advantage
In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor in the PowerShot ELPH 530 HS makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24†† frames per second, the PowerShot ELPH 530 HS can also shoot 720p HD video at 30‡‡ frames per second.

Touch Panel LCD with Touch Shutter
The PowerShot ELPH 530 HS features touch panel technology that makes using the camera more intuitive and fun. Simply touch the screen to choose and track an AF point, change camera settings, record and play videos and much more!

Smart AUTO
Smart AUTO for the PowerShot ELPH 530 HS makes it easier than ever to capture sharp, bright, colorful images and videos. By assessing various factors in both the background and the subject, the system recognizes 58 predefined shooting situations.

Intelligent IS
Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation.
