Canon Powershot SX540 HS Camera features:

50x optical zoom

The long 50x optical zoom lens of the SX540 features a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-1200mm to enable you to capture everything from superbly detailed long-range wildlife close ups to great group shots and stunning landscapes.


Picture and video image stabilisation

The Canon PowerShot SX420 IS features an intelligent image stabilisation system that greatly reduces blur/shake in both videos and photos. This feature is essential when shooting distant subjects or during low light conditions.


Wi-Fi & NFC connectivity for easy file sharing and remote shooting

Connect to a compatible smart device with just one tap using Wi-Fi with Dynamic NFC for easy sharing. Use Image Sync to automatically backup new images to cloud services and capture great wildlife shots with wireless Remote Shooting from your smart device. The Wi-Fi Button offers a quick and easy shortcut to Wi-Fi functions.


Effortlessly keep track of your subject

It’s simple to keep track of distant subjects at high zoom. Simply press a button and Zoom Framing Assist quickly zooms the camera out of the scene - so you can relocate your subject - zooming back the moment it’s released. Improved Auto mode automatically zooms out when the subject leaves the frame and helps you keep them at a preset size.


Clear shots in almost any light

Day or night your images will be just as you remember them. Canon’s HS System and DIGIC 6 processor enables light sensitivities up to ISO 3200. This gives clearer results, even in low light, so it’s easy to capture the real atmosphere of precious moments without using flash or a tripod.


Stunning images with ease

Shooting great photos or movies is effortless with Smart Auto, which chooses the perfect camera settings for you – whatever the scene.


Full HD recording at 60 frames per second

Shoot realistic Full HD 60p movies with one touch of a button and keep footage steady at full zoom or on the run with Advanced Dynamic Image Stabilizer. Capture short, concise, 4, 5 or 6 second movies with Short Clip Movie or use Story Highlights to intelligently combine photos and movies into a movie album.


Enhance your creative skills

Surprise family and friends with your creative flair. Experiment with light entering the camera using Full Manual control to enhance your creative skills. Or use Creative Shot to intelligently capture five extra images of your original subject with various artistic effects.


Fast 5.9 fps continuous shooting

The PowerShot SX540 features a fast continuous shooting speed of 5.9 fps.


Comfortable, steady shooting

Designed with your comfort in mind, you can enjoy steady shots even at full zoom and shoot comfortably for longer periods thanks to a ergonomic grip.


0 cm Macro shooting

The SX540 features a short focusing distance of 0cm (from the lens) as well as dedicated macro image stabilising. This will enable you to effortlessly capture sharp images of small objects and fine details.
