Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS is a digital camera equipped with Canon's HS SYSTEM that supports shooting in low-light, Full 1080p HD video, and comes with a new Movie Digest Mode and 32 Smart AUTO scenes. The camera is part of the company’s PowerShot line that includes the “HS” suffix to represent the inclusion of the HS SYSTEM. The HS SYSTEM is a technology used to optimize image quality in low-light situations without the need for a flash. The digital camera also features Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor which when combined with a High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, reduces noise at high ISO levels and expands the camera's range.

Features

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS also allows users to shoot HD video, and supports Dynamic Image Stabilizer, the new Movie Digest mode that lets users shoot a short video before capturing a still image and then combine the videos into one clip. The camera also features advanced Smart AUTO with 32 different shooting scenes that automatically selects settings that match the scene without the need to switch modes. Other features on the Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS include Advanced Subjection Detection which is the new addition to Smart AUTO function. This function automatically identifies certain objects and triggers the Servo Auto Focus/Auto Exposure to adjust focus and exposure of the moving subject as it is tracked; Toy Camera effect which adds a grainy, blurred look to soften photos, illustrating an old-school, 1960's appearance; Monochrome effect that gives users options for black-and-white, blue or sepia tones; a 3.2-inch wide touch-panel LCD screen; f/2.0 lens for greater depth of field; a 12.1-Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor; 4.4X Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer and an ultra-wide angle 24mm equivalent lens. Available in silver, brown and pink, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS is scheduled to be available at the end of March for the estimated retail price of $299.99.
