Affordable performance.

5.0 Megapixel
The PowerShot A530's 5.0 Megapixel CCD sensor captures enough fine detail for large photo quality prints, with plenty of scope for post-shoot cropping.

4x optical zoom
A bright 4x optical zoom lens gives you the flexibility to shoot up close without sacrificing quality. It combines with the digital zoom for an impressive 16x magnification.

Visionary Technology
Canon's DIGIC II image processor links all camera functions and processes images at high speed for excellent responsiveness and extended battery life. iSAPS technology uses scene information to optimise camera settings before the shot is taken. 9-point AiAF keeps your images sharply focused - even with off-centre subjects.

Shooting modes and My Colors
Choose from 17 shooting modes to get that perfect shot. 9 Special Scene modes assist with tricky lighting conditions, including Beach, Foliage and Snow. Further enhance your images with My Colors in-camera colour management tools.

Great indoor and night shots
A high-speed ISO 800 setting allows you to shoot correctly exposed images in indoor or near-dark conditions without using a flash. ISO 800 also enables shooting at higher shutter speeds, reducing the risk of image blur.

Widescreen recording
Shoot still images in Widescreen 16:9 mode for seamless playback on widescreen TV or printing on wide size paper to a SELPHY CP printer - perfect for displaying panoramas in all their glory.

Movies with sound
Make extra long¹ VGA quality movie clips with full audio. View them with friends and family on the camera's LCD screen, or connect to a TV or PC for full screen playback.

1.8" LCD screen
A 1.8" LCD brings pleasure to framing and reviewing your creations. A selectable Grid Line Display helps with composition, while Night Display aids screen visibility after dark.

Direct printing
Connect to any PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible photo printer and push the Print/Share button for a full colour photo in seconds.
