The Canon Powershot SX30 IS is a new look model that will replace both the SX1 and SX20 models and offers some stunning features that makes it ideal for travel photographers and those looking to get closer to the action.
Canon Powershot SX30 features
With a brand new 14.1MP sensor and Digic 4 processor, the Canon Powershot SX30 IS uses both voice coil motors and USM to ensure rapid, silent operation of the mamouth 35x optical zoom. This offers an equivalent of 24-840mm focal range and can be extended yet further using the digital zoom (at the expense of resolution). To cope with such a zoom it also features Canon’s highest to date, 4.5 stop IS (image stabilising) system, to ensure that you can take a steady shot even at its greatest magnification.
The Canon Powershot SX30 also boasts a 2.7in vari-angle LCD screen for easy viewing from any angle, an electronic viewfinder (EVF) and 720P HD video. Picture style effects are available for both still and video, including a time lapse styled miniature mode. Plus the full range of the zoom is on offer for video use.
