Bridge Cameras

Ideal for shooting everything from ultra-wide angle landscapes to extreme telephoto shots of wildlife, Canon’s bridge cameras offer a powerful zoom lens for capturing near and far subjects in sharp detail plus the proven stability and handling of a DSLR-like body.

Bridge Cameras intro image

Powerful zoom, stunning sharp results

To give you the best performance, we have distilled our optic technologies into some of the smallest and most powerful optical zoom lenses available. Images and movies are sharp and detailed even when you’re shooting handheld in low light or filming on the move thanks to our intelligent optical Image Stabilizer that can adapt to the scene.

Bridge Cameras Optical Excellence

Never lose sight of a subject while zooming

Zoom Framing Assist lets you easily keep track of distant subjects at high zoom. At the press of a button the camera quickly zooms out - so you can relocate your subject - zooming back the moment the button is released. The camera can also track faces for you, automatically using the zoom to ensure they remain at a preset size within the frame.

Take Control

Explore your passion for photography with advanced features and manual controls. You can choose exposure parameters such as aperture, shutter speed, white balance and ISO. Plus our best bridge camera can shoot in RAW format – for full creative control in post-shot editing – and offers advanced manual movie features.

Advanced features
Ergonomic grip

Steady, comfortable shooting

Designed with your comfort in mind, our bridge cameras have refined, ergonomic DSLR-like bodies and grips – so you’ll always have a firm hold on the camera and can enjoy steadier shots even at full zoom.


You would need to carry all these lenses with a DSLR to enjoy the same zoom range that you get with a compact Canon bridge camera.
