Pocket sized

With roughly the same dimensions of a smartphone, the Canon Poweshot SX620 HS is truly pocket sized and will not be a hassle to carry around.

25X optical zoom and image stabilisation

With a 25X zoom lens (35mm film equivalent of 25-625mm) at your disposal you can capture both wide angle landscapes and detailed close-ups of distant subjects. The lens also features image stabilisation to help you get sharp pictures when shooting in dim light.

20.2 Megapixel sensor with 1080p Full HD video recording

The SX620 features a powerful 20.2 Megapixel sensor capable of capturing fine details or clear shots in low-light. The sensor's low light capabilities comes from the DIGIC 4+ processor that enables light sensitivities up to ISO 3200, and if that is not enough a small pop-up flash can light your subject.
The sensor and processor combination also enables 1080p Full HD video recording. Full HD videos can be recorded at up to 30 fps in MP4 format and includes stabilisation modes to reduce unwanted camera movements.

Wi-Fi with Dynamic NFC

Wi-Fi with Dynamic NFC connects your camera to compatible smart devices with just one tap. Use the Camera Connect app to share your creations with social media and capture great selfies with wireless Remote Shooting. Use Image Sync to automatically back up new images to cloud services like Canon’s irista.

Hybrid Auto

Not a camera expert, then don't worry, just point and shoot to capture fantastic photos or movies with Hybrid Auto, which takes care of camera settings for you.

3.0” LCD screen

A bright and large 7.5 cm (3.0”) LCD screen allows easy shooting and playback.

Creative play

At the touch of the shutter, Creative Shot automatically creates 5 additional unique images of your original shot, while Creative Shot in movies automatically adds a unique twist by choosing various frame rates for you. Use Creative Filters to add a unique look and feel to stills or movies scenes such as Fish Eye, Miniature, Super Vivid and more.
