Features

Powerful 50x Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer for outstanding optical performance.

50x Optical Zoom (24–1200mm)

Once you experience the reach and versatility of this camera’s astonishing 50x Optical Zoom, you’ll wonder how you ever did without it. From sporting events to travel highlights, wildlife to landscapes, the powerful zoom lets you capture the details that make your photography stand out. Not only will you have the ability to move in to the shot you want, but you’ll also be able to capture those shots with incredible Canon quality. The camera’s secure ergonomic grip makes steady handheld shooting easy and comfortable, while Intelligent IS analyzes the shooting situation and applies advanced stabilization technology to help keep images clear and virtually shake-free in a wide variety of conditions.

Intelligent IS

Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies a suitable shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make effective IS settings to help capture a steady image.

 

20.3 Megapixel* CMOS sensor with DIGIC 6 Image Processor helps deliver stunning image quality even in low light.

20.3 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor

The PowerShot SX540 HS camera employs a 20.3 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which delivers powerful imaging performance and is optimized for use in compact cameras. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for high ISO capture with reduced noise. It’s also incredibly fast, capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, as well as enabling fast continuous shooting and fast autofocus.

* Image processing may cause a decrease in the number of pixels.

DIGIC 6 Image Processor

The PowerShot SX540 HS camera is equipped with the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which helps boost image quality in both stills and video. Improved light sensitivity allows for higher resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions, and Dynamic IS detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to help create video that’s virtually free of distortion. The processor also enhances the performance capabilities of the PowerShot SX540 HS camera, enabling high-speed, high-quality continuous still image shooting at up to 6.0 frames per second. And video recording is impressive as ever, as the DIGIC 6 Image Processor enables Full HD at 60p, as well as MP4 recording. Highly compressed MP4 video not only preserves space on your memory card but also improves playback on compatible mobile devices. Plus, with MF Peaking possible thanks to the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, you’ll have a pro-level focusing tool at your disposal.

Built-in Wi-Fi® and NFC allows for easy sharing and transferring of images and videos.

Built-in Wi-Fi® Technology Makes Sharing Quick and Easy

Built-in Wi-Fi® technology allows for on-the-go convenience when you want to share your photos and videos with friends and family.

The camera can also connect directly to both compatible iOS®** and Android™ devices***, and upload images via the free Canon Camera Connect app** without a computer. You can control the destination of your uploads to share with everyone or to select groups, and even add comments. Sharing video is also easy with Wi-Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras, which record video using the easy-to-share MP4 format. Wi-Fi® capability makes posting in real time possible, so you can keep everyone up to date with photos and video even as events unfold.

Simply touch the camera against an NFC-equipped device with the Canon Camera Connect app** installed, and a Wi-Fi® connection is established – no camera operations required. Even if your camera is off, NFC turns the camera on and establishes the connection (confirming the camera’s nickname and privacy settings before the first connection is required).

Capture spectacular 1080p Full HD video at 60p with stereo sound.

The PowerShot SX540 HS camera is designed to make beautiful, creative video capture easy and fun. Image quality is luminous and lifelike in 1080p Full HD, with selectable frame rates of 60p and 30p to match the situation and end use. MP4 format, ideal for sharing and mobile devices, is also available. Dynamic IS offers 5-axis image stabilization that corrects even the strong camera shake that happens when you shoot while running or walking backward.

Zoom Framing Assist now features a lock button option for quick and accurate subject recognition.

With its 50x Optical Zoom lens, the PowerShot SX540 HS camera has the telephoto reach to capture subjects a long distance away. At maximum telephoto, however, it can be challenging to track a moving subject. The Zoom Framing Assist seek function makes it much easier to use the camera’s powerful zoom lens. When you press and hold the Zoom Framing Assist button, the camera will automatically zoom out to include a wider angle of view, enabling you to more easily locate your moving subject. Once you find it, releasing the button will cause the lens to return to its original zoom position, intelligently keeping the subject in focus until you’re ready to shoot and capture the perfect close-up moment. You can even make zoom adjustments while the button is pressed, with an animated assist frame that makes viewing easy. When the button is released, the lens will return to the adjusted zoom position. And with the Zoom Framing Assist Lock, the camera will use image stabilization techniques to lock onto and automatically track a subject, keeping them in the center of the frame until you’re ready to capture the ideal close-up shot. Zoom Framing Assist can now be turned on and off with the simple press of a button, allowing for easy and automatic subject selection.

 

Zoom Framing Assist offers a seek assist function that detects when you’re panning (for instance, to search for the location of a soccer ball) and automatically zooms out to help; stop panning, and the zoom returns to its original position. Zoom Framing Assist keeps your subject’s face the same size in your frame no matter how they move. Tap the Zoom Framing Assist function button to detect your subject’s face. As your subject retreats and advances the camera automatically zooms in and out so their face remains the same size. It’s especially useful for capturing the expressions of fast-moving children. The feature has been further enhanced by letting you choose the subject’s size: choices include face, upper body, whole body, manual or off for superior assistance and control. And, for even more convenience, all Zoom Framing Assist functions are also available when shooting video.

These photos are for illustrative purposes.

Large 3.0-inch LCD (approx. 461,000 dots) allows easy viewing even from a wide angle.

The large, 3.0-inch high-resolution LCD screen makes it easy to both frame and review your shots. A resolution of approximately 461,000 dots helps make even small details clear, and images are viewable even from a wide angle, so showing others what you’ve captured is easy, too.

Hybrid Auto lets you record up to four seconds of video before each image you capture, then automatically combines each clip and still into a quick video recap of the day.

Hybrid Auto records up to four seconds of video every time you shoot a still image, then automatically joins the clips and pictures* into a video that captures the essence of special days: vacations, important occasions or any time you’re shooting many shots in a day. In this mode, Hybrid Auto automatically recognizes the scene and optimizes camera settings for incredibly high image quality. The resulting 1080p HD video is properly exposed, crisp and steady, so your “highlight reel” is stunningly beautiful.

 

* Pictures can be withheld from the resulting video via menu settings.

Story Highlights enables the camera to automatically compile images and videos from a certain day or event into a mini highlight reel with music and effects.

View your still images and video* as a fun short story with the Story Highlights feature on the PowerShot SX540 HS camera. Improved for convenience, you can choose to have the camera create this reel automatically by using advanced algorithms to classify your images according to date, event or people, then compiling a short video of approximately three minutes** with suitable background music and color effects applied. You can also customize your Story Highlights reel for a fun, unique video. Story Highlights BGM lets you add background music (choose from three pre-loaded songs) to the clips that Story Highlights automatically generates, for a new level of emotive expression. It’s all done in camera, without the need for any additional software. Easily access and enjoy your Story Highlights – simply press the Story Highlights button to start creating your highlight album. The Story Highlights album can be saved to the camera’s memory card for quick replay and also shared with the PowerShot SX540 HS camera’s built-in Wi-Fi® technology.

* Videos must be shot in Hybrid Auto or Short Clip.
** Length of highlight video varies according to the photos and videos added to the Story Highlights album.
