Powershot SX510 HS
Canon today adds to its collection of powerful compact superzooms with the introduction of the PowerShot SX510 HS and PowerShot SX170 IS.

The SX510 HS features a 30x optical zoom and a 24mm wide angle lens. It uses the HS system, which combines a 12.1 Megapixel high-sensitivity CMOS sensor with a DIGIC 4 processor to capture the true ambience of low-light scenes at times like dusk, while maintaining the realism of colours and rich detail, with minimum blur. 

The SX510 HS also features Wi-Fi, enabling you to share photos and movies on social media sites and YouTube directly from the camera or to tablets and smartphones using the free Canon CameraWindow app. 

The camera also features a super slow movie mode and is able to record in 1080p HD. 
Powershot SX170 IS
The SX170 IS features a 28mm wide angle lens and 16x optical zoom. It features a 16 megapixel sensor and features high quality HD movie recording. 

Both cameras benefit from Canon’s industry-renowned optical Image Stabilizer with Intelligent IS technology that makes it easy to capture sharp shots at longer focal lengths and in low light.

Canon’s ZoomPlus technology also digitally extends both models’ lens reach beyond the maximum focal length while maintaining high image quality, zooming as far as 60x on the PowerShot SX510 HS and 32x on the PowerShot SX170 IS.  The PowerShot SX510 HS also includes an enhanced Zoom Framing Assist function with a new Auto mode, which ensures subjects are always in focus even as they move closer to, or away from, the camera. 

Both models also feature Eco mode, which helps users continue shooting for longer by conserving battery life. Up to 46% more photos can be captured on the PowerShot SX170 IS and 32% more on the PowerShot SX510 HS thanks to this feature.

The PowerShot SX510HS and PowerShot SX170 IS are available in the UK & Ireland from 23 August 2013 with an SRP of:

PowerShot SX510 HS - £289.99/€349.99

PowerShot SX170 IS - £169.99/€199.99
