Digital versatility
Versatility is the name of the game for the 4.0 Megapixel PowerShot A520. It is delightfully easy for the whole family to use, yet incorporates a multitude of advanced features and manual modes to challenge the most inquisitive user.

All situations covered
With a powerful Canon original 4x zoom and 20 shooting modes, including 8 special scene modes, at your disposal, you can cover any shooting situation from a sweeping panorama to the tiniest details on an intricate flower. The special scene modes are stored shooting presets ideal in tricky shooting conditions when you don't want to use the manual controls. There is even an 'Underwater' mode for use with the exciting optional waterproof case.

Making Movies
Take up to 3-minute movie clips, complete with sound recording and fun playback on the large 1.8" LCD monitor. For very high definition playback on a TV, the camera can also record up to 30 second VGA clips.

Images that shine
Every function on the PowerShot A520 works with you to get great results. 9-point AiAF keeps everything sharply focused - even with off-centre subjects. Canon Visionary Technology combines in the form of a superb quality lens, precision sensor and super fast processor to ensure accurate colours and high clarity images. To speed up focusing and optimise exposures, the camera analyses the scene and makes setting adjustments even before the shutter release is pressed.

Print and share
A Print/Share button makes printing direct to any PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible printer a breeze, and simplifies uploads to any Windows PC. When connected to a Canon SELPHY Compact Photo Printer, the PowerShot A520 allows you to print a sequence of movie clip frames, and produce your own ID photos.

Get connected
Online sharing is easy with 100 MB free storage space on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY. ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Macintosh) software helps you arrange photo albums, crop photographs and adjust contrast and brightness with ease.

Accessories extend the enjoyment
To help you get more out of your camera, the range of optional accessories includes a 40m depth waterproof case, large capacity rechargeable batteries, wide and tele-converter lenses and a High-Power Flash for extending night shooting range.
