    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # 6160B001 )


    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.

    Built-in WiFi®

    The ELPH 530 HS features built-in WiFi® wireless technology making captured images and HD videos available easily for effortless sharing to friends and family. Compatible with WiFi® (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. Images can be uploaded virtually anywhere via your iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch® or Android® mobile devices by installing the free Canon CameraWindow app. This app makes it easy to select and save images stored on your iOS or Android 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 Wi­Fi® enabled PowerShot cameras.

    UA Lens Technology

    Pioneered by Canon, UA Lens technology makes possible compact lenses with remarkable optical performance. By using molded glass with an ultra-high refractive index in aspherical lens elements, Canon has succeeded in reducing lens size while significantly reducing image aberrations. Another stellar example of cutting-edge Canon optics, UA Lens technology helps make PowerShot digital cameras pocket-friendly and capable of astounding image quality.

    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. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot spectacular 1080p Full HD video with stereo sound that you can later watch on your HDTV or download to your computer to share with family and friends. 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.

    Dedicated Movie Button, Wind filter feature and Optical Zoom for easy video capture

    It’s never been easier to shoot videos with a PowerShot digital camera. The PowerShot ELPH 530 HS has a dedicated movie button that lets you start and stop recording instantly. There is no need to go through layers of menus or operate switches or dials to switch to and from video recording mode. The camera is always ready to shoot stills or video whenever you want. The PowerShot ELPH 530 HS also incorporates an electronic wind filter, which suppresses wind noise that can muffle or distort the sound. And unlike less sophisticated point-and-shoot cameras, the PowerShot ELPH 530 HS lets you use the full range of optical zoom when you’re shooting a video.

    HDTV playback via HDMI output and CEC

    It’s easy to enjoy and share the videos you shoot with the PowerShot ELPH 530 HS. Simply connect its HDMI terminal to your HDTV using an HDMI cable. And because the PowerShot ELPH 530 HS supports HDMI-CEC technology, you’ll be able to control the playback of your images and videos on any CEC-enabled HDTV using the TV’s remote control. (CEC – Consumer Electronic Control – is part of the HDMI specification, enabling components in a system to communicate with one another.)


    With the PowerShot ELPH 530 HS, you can also shoot video in the Apple® iFrame format, which is a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos. It keeps file sizes small, making it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, making it unnecessary to perform time-consuming and often quality-degrading conversions.
