Overview

An Ultra-Slim High Performer

In the twelve years since the original ELPH was instantly and universally proclaimed an icon of style, successive ELPH cameras have remained at the forefront of design even while boasting the very latest in digital technology. Now, opening a new era of ELPH design, the PowerShot ELPH 520 HS digital camera is both homage to the original ELPH and astonishing synthesis of Canon's leadership in technical advancements. A mere 0.76 inches thick, it is the world's thinnest 12x zoom camera*. Canon's pursuit of perfection has driven the development of new miniaturization including a new lens and new 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor that, powered by Canon's DIGIC 5 Image Processor, create images as breathtakingly beautiful as the camera itself. It's also packed with the latest Canon technologies including Smart AUTO with new Face ID and Full HD Video. Brimming with a full range of advanced technologies that automatically optimize the image quality of every shot, the PowerShot ELPH 520 HS digital camera makes the ultimate style icon incredibly effortless.

 

Features

Incredibly Thin Design
The PowerShot ELPH 520 HS is the world's thinnest camera* with a 12x zoom. At an astonishingly thin 0.76 inches, it is significantly slimmer than competitors' 12x zoom models.

12x Optical Zoom and 28mm Wide-Angle Lens
Newly designed to custom-fit the PowerShot ELPH 520 HS digital camera's incredibly thin profile, the camera's 12x Optical Zoom and 28mm Wide-Angle Lens is a marvel of optical technology. The Wide-Angle lens gives you more to work with in every shot. It also incorporates the latest in Canon UA lens technology, suppressing lens aberration for outstanding image quality throughout the entire zoom range. The camera's sensor was specifically designed for this lens, so even at the long end of the zoom images are bright and clear.

Canon HS SYSTEM
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 5 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 520 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 520 HS can also shoot 720p HD video at 30*** frames per second.

Dedicated Movie Button, Wind filter feature and Optical Zoom for easy video capture
The PowerShot ELPH 520 HS has a dedicated movie button that lets you start and stop recording instantly. The PowerShot ELPH 520 HS also incorporates an electronic wind filter, which suppresses wind noise that can muffle or distort the sound. The PowerShot ELPH 520 HS also lets you use the full range of optical zoom when you're shooting a video.

iFrame
With the PowerShot ELPH 520 HS, you can also shoot video in the Apple iFrame format. It keeps file sizes small, making it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos.

PureColor System LCD
The PowerShot ELPH 520 HS digital camera's large and bright 3.0-inch PureColor LCD screen makes it easy to view and frame your shots in high resolution (461,000 dots).

Smart AUTO
Smart AUTO for the PowerShot ELPH 520 HS has been significantly expanded, making it easier than ever to capture the sharp, bright, colorful images -and videos- you're looking for. By assessing various factors in both the background and the subject, the system recognizes 58 predefined shooting situations.

Face ID
Face ID is one of the most advanced and exciting new features of the PowerShot ELPH 520 HS, giving you an easy way to improve every shot of the people you love. Simply take a picture of up to 12 faces you would like the camera to register, then enter names and ages. Once a person is registered, the camera will pick him or her out of a group and adjust focus and exposure to his or her face, even recognizing faces in profile.

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