PowerShot SX500 IS

Get even closer with 30x zoom

You can be sure you’re never far from the action with the Canon PowerShot SX500 IS.

Get even closer with a high-quality 30x optical zoom and up to 60x with ZoomPlus - an advanced zoom technology with more visible detail and sharpness than conventional digital zoom.

This ultra zoom is packed into an incredibly compact body, making the PowerShot SX500 IS Canon’s smallest and lightest 30x zoom camera ever.

It’s ideal for carrying around and means you’ll never miss a moment, no matter where it happens.

Sharp photos every time

The Canon PowerShot SX500 IS contains an ingenious optical Image Stabilizer with Intelligent IS. It enables you to take sharper photos and steady movies.

When shooting with the zoom extended or in dark conditions camera shake is likely to occur, increasing the possibility of blurred results. Canon’s pioneering solution is Intelligent IS – an advanced optical (lens-shift) image stabilisation system that is smart enough to detect the scene and apply the most effective correction for sharper and clearer photos and movies.
