High-end super-zoom in a compact body
The PowerShot SX240 HS benefits from Canon’s class-leading lens technology. The slim, compact body boasts a 25 mm wide-angle lens with an impressive 20x optical zoom. This provides outstanding telephoto reach and therefore gives you increased flexibility when framing your shot. At 25 mm, the lens allows you to fit more in the frame, which is perfect for group shots. However, when extended to its maximum range, the 20x optical zoom ensures you capture all the detail, even when photographing distant subjects.
In addition to the optical zoom, the PowerShot SX240 HS also features Canon’s advanced digital zoom technology, ZoomPlus. This extends the camera’s overall zoom range to 39x, without losing sharpness and detail in the image as a conventional digital zoom would.
Incredibly sharp images whatever the situation
The PowerShot SX240 HS also benefits from Canon’s Intelligent IS technology. Whether you’re shooting stills or movies, Intelligent IS automatically identifies the shooting situation and then selects the most appropriate type of optical image stabilization from 7 modes. For example, when capturing a close-up of a flower the camera will automatically select Macro IS with Hybrid IS technology, but then it will automatically switch to Powered IS when filming distant subjects with the zoom. This allows you to focus on framing the image you want, safe in the knowledge that the camera is working to eliminate as much camera shake as possible, even if you need to move with your scene.
