Ideal for every family occasion, the PowerShot SX240 HS boasts an impressive 20x zoom lens and advanced Full HD movies in a compact body. HS System with DIGIC 5 and Intelligent IS give superb results. 20x zoom, 25mm wide-angle lens; compact body A wide-angle lens with a huge 20x optical zoom lets you capture exactly the shot you want. Fit more in the frame with 25mm or get extremely close to distant subjects with 39x ZoomPlus - an advanced zoom technology with more visible detail and sharpness than conventional digital zoom. The compact body means you can capture every precious memory wherever you go. HS System: 12.1 Megapixel CMOS and DIGIC 5 HS System excels in low light allowing you to capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or tripod. Advanced DIGIC 5 processing and a high-sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor give excellent image quality in all situations. Intelligent IS Intelligent IS combats camera shake to ensure all your photos and videos are sharp and detailed even at full zoom or in low light. It automatically adjusts the optical Image Stabilizer to the scene from 7 modes to prevent blur. Full HD movies Use the movie button to instantly record Full HD (1080p) movies in stereo with optical zoom, while Intelligent IS keeps footage steady.


An HDMI connection ensures high quality playback on an HDTV. 7.5 cm (3.0) PureColor II G LCD A large 460k dot LCD screen with excellent visibility allows easy framing and reviewing of images from almost any angle plus effortless menu navigation. A tempered glass outer layer gives great durability. Smart Auto (58 scenes) Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects optimal settings from 58 variables (21 in movies). It also works with faces stored in Face ID and adapts shooting according to registered age - for example turning off flash and sounds when a sleeping baby is detected or automatically capturing 3 quick shots when detecting children at play. Face ID Face ID lets you register up to 12 faces of family and friends, so they are automatically the focusing priority in every shot, and tags images with their names so they are easy to find in playback. Manual, Av and Tv modes Experiment with different effects using Manual modes (Tv, Av and M), which give you creative control over shutter speed and aperture. High-speed shooting Capture fast-paced action with High-speed Burst or slow down fast movement with Super Slow Motion Movie. Optional 40m Waterproof Case Protect your camera outdoors and shoot underwater down to depths of 40m with a waterproof case.
