A PowerShot with an Extreme Zoom.
The PowerShot SX30 IS has got you prepared for your next extreme photo opportunity. This point-and-shoot digital camera comes with a massive 35x Wide-Angle (24-840mm) Optical Zoom lens - a first for any PowerShot! It also comes with a 2.7-inch Vari-angle LCD, 14.1 Megapixels, High Dynamic Range, Zoom Framing Assist and much more.

Canon's first high-powered 35x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom (24-840mm) with Optical Image Stabilizer reduces camera shake to achieve amazing images whether you are up close or far away.

The PowerShot SX30 IS is equipped with a 35x Optical Zoom lens with a focal length of 4.3 - 150.5mm (35mm equivalent: 24 - 40mm) that allows you to shoot any scene from wide-angle to telephoto. The camera uses a VCM (Voice Coil Motor) for high-speed, quiet, energy-efficient lens movement with precise control. Focal length is conveniently indicated on the lens barrel.

The lens is optimized to fully exploit its zoom length and wide shooting angle in concert with the camera's high 14.1 Megapixel resolution. UD glass effectively suppresses chromatic aberration, while enhanced negative refractive power ensures that distortion at the wide-angle is also corrected. Further aberration is controlled with the inclusion of a double-sided aspherical glass-molded lens and ultra-high refraction index lens.

The SX30 IS is equipped with Canon's acclaimed Optical Image Stabilizer Technology that automatically detects and corrects camera shake - one of the leading causes of fuzzy or blurred shots. Even when zoomed in, you can get the steady, crisp, brilliant images you'll be proud to shoot and share. And Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer Technology is convenient to use. It functions perfectly with or without a flash.

Improvements to Movie modes: Dynamic mode enables users to use the Optical Image Stabilizer while shooting video in the wide-angle setting, and the Optical Zoom is now available while shooting video.

Dynamic IS allows you to capture video with more precision and ease than ever before! Without having to make any additional camera adjustments, Dynamic IS automatically operates the moment you start recording video. This image stabilizer continuously readjusts throughout the camera's entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion - especially when shooting in the wide-angle end, so footage comes out steady and clear even while you're walking and recording at the same time!

And with a powerful 35x Optical Zoom, you'll never be too far away from capturing your greatest memories! Best of all, the Optical Zoom can now be used while shooting video - a first for any of the Canon PowerShot SX digital cameras! So no matter the distance or environment, Canon lets you stay confident that you'll capture the footage you want.

Shoots superb 720p HD video with stereo sound so you can fully capture those fun, memorable moments, and then view them with an HDMI output connector for easy playback on your HDTV.

The PowerShot SX30 IS lets you record video in beautiful high definition (1280 x 720 pixels). The camera also makes it easy to enjoy HD videos (and still photos) on your HDTV with a mini-HDMI connector for direct connection to a high-definition TV monitor. You'll enjoy the HD experience with no degradation of image or audio in the signal, plus the ability to display up to 130 still images at once.

Using the new Zoom Framing Assist button aids the user in tracking and capturing subjects during super telephoto photography.

With its 35x Optical Zoom lens, the SX30 IS can certainly capture subjects located at a very far distance; however, even with a powerful zoom lens it can often be tricky to track a moving subject while zoomed out to the maximum telephoto range and attempting to steady the camera. To counter this problem, Canon created the Zoom Framing Assist function. By simply pressing and holding the convenient Zoom Framing Assist function button, the camera will automatically zoom out to a wider focal point, allowing you to look for your elusive subject. Once found, releasing the button will cause the camera to return to its original position and intelligently keep the subject in focus, so you don't have to trouble yourself with any of the controls. Recording video and images has never been easier with a Canon PowerShot!


Advanced Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper settings for the camera based on 28 predefined shooting situations.

Just set the Canon PowerShot SX30 IS to Smart AUTO and you're ready for maximum enjoyment from your picture taking every time. It's a relaxing and satisfying way to shoot because you can completely concentrate on your subject knowing that the camera has the technical details covered. Advanced Canon technology intelligently analyzes your situation and shooting conditions. Then it automatically selects an appropriate setting from 28 specially defined settings. So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset, or your friends at the park, you can be confident that you're getting dramatic, memorable images.

This classically-styled camera has a powerful DIGIC 4 Image Processor and 14.1 Megapixels, which makes it a perfect device for any shooter!

The PowerShot SX30 IS is equipped with many of the same features as a higher-end camera: an ultra-powerful zoom, eye-popping resolution and advanced picture-improving technology. 14.1 Megapixels of resolution gives your photography incomparable depth and ensures that any section of any shot can be enlarged and cropped with no loss in quality when you edit the image or even if you choose to print the image. It can create crisp, clear 13" x 19" posters.

Canon's proprietary DIGIC Image Processors have long set its cameras apart from the competition, and the new DIGIC 4 sets the bar even higher. Faster, more accurate noise reduction delivers better image quality, even at high ISO speeds.

iSAPS Technology Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

Large 2.7-inch Vari-angle LCD enables easy viewing.

The camera's 2.7-inch PureColor System LCD screen gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient. The clear and bright LCD also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light. It also has an electronic viewfinder that provides sharp images when you shoot up close during Macro photography.

For the first time, this camera comes with Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, which makes powering up simple.
The PowerShot SX30 IS now uses a rechargeable lithium-ion NB-7L battery. For ultimate convenience and simplicity, just charge the batteries and you're ready for your next photographic adventure!

Dimensions: 4.84 x 3.64 x 4.24 in.

5 out of 5 stars   High quality pix without highbrow equip
By YourMotherDoesWindows (Bothell, WA) October 03, 2011
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX30 IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 35x Optical Zoom and HD Video (CNPSSX30IS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, Easy To Use, Tremendous optical zoom, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Large Clear LCD, Good Image Stabilization, Very steady - no blurring
Cons:
Other Comments: I tested comparable models by Nikon and Fuji, and I liked the zoom and stablization on this camera much better. I originally thought I wanted a DSLR camera like the Nikon or Canon models but really didn't want to spent $800 and up for a good setup. My brother-in-law had one of these and I was amazed at how easy it was to use, the powerful zoom, and pictures he'd taken recently while hiking. The flash seems to recycle quite quickly. I also like that I can pop up the flash when I need it and pop it down when I don't. My point and shoot camera, while it takes good pictures, is a bit of a headache to enable/disable the flash.

3 out of 5 stars   Good but Moody
By Arie (NYC) June 14, 2011
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX30 IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 35x Optical Zoom and HD Video (CNPSSX30IS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Good Image Quality, Easy To Use, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Zoom Lens Gets Stuck, Lag / Shutter Delay
Other Comments: Use it as "back up" for SLR. Zoom Lens gets stuck, and need to wait for camera to go "through motions" to get it going. It is not a reliable "point & Shoot" When taking pictures they are of excellent quality. "Long" lag time

By mac (Johnson, VT) February 05, 2011

Verified Purchaser
Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: The SX30 is a great camera for all-around shooting. Its sharpness at full telephoto is surprisingly good. Sharpness at full wide-angle is less than desired. Still, throughout its entire 35x range, quite acceptable prints can be made.

By ted c (Illinois) February 03, 2011
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX30 IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 35x Optical Zoom and HD Video (CNPSSX30IS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great carry around camera, Small package, Excellent results, Extremely versitile, Unreal zoom power, It's a Canon, It's a great little Canon
Cons: None found
Other Comments: I normally shoot with a 5D Mark II. This camera will never be a Mark II but it is great to have when you do not have your regular camera with you. This great little camera can be with you full time and will allow you to capture what would have normally been lost. Fantastic job Canon, great little product for anyone.

4 out of 5 stars   Best camera for non-pro
By QQ pics (New York, NY) December 13, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX30 IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 35x Optical Zoom and HD Video (CNPSSX30IS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: So many functions, Convenient, Sturdy case, Super impressive zoom, Totally worth every penny
Cons: Not so stabilized image, Poor Flash, Hard to zoom to 140x, Poor on screen color
Other Comments: Overall is a very good camera, very sturdy case, easy to use functions, all buttons are conveniently located at finger tip. The only compliant I have is it's hard to stabilized the image during zoom-in, an it takes a bit too long (time wise) to wait for zooming in or out - at 140x soom. And the large screen (on the back) color is not too sharp, the color appear to be soft.

5 out of 5 stars   Canon Does it Again!
By Gare (Milwaukee) October 08, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX30 IS 14.1 MP Digital Camera w/ 35x Optical Zoom and HD Video (CNPSSX30IS)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: HD movies, Image Stabilization, Image Quality, 35x Zoom
Cons: Slow "Burst" Mode
Other Comments: Took it out of the box and shot my nephew's hockey game with excellent results. I left it on full auto, since I didn't have time to read the manual and was very pleased. IQ is excellent for a P&S camera and the HD movies are crisp and smooth on my pc. Canon's image stabilization is amazing... caught a nice hand-held "portrait" of my nephew at full 35x zoom, through glass, and across the ice!!! My only gripe so far (and I knew it would be) is the "burst mode"... just over 1 fps is not great for shooting sports. So far, this is the only trade-off I've found in an otherwise very well-rounded P&S.
