Canon PowerShot SX610 HS: 42 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

4. weight

5. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

6. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

7. video recording

8. Has WiFi

The device can connect to WiFi.

9. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

10. width

12. higher resolution (screen)

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

15. has built-in optical image stabilization

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

24. optical zoom

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

25. widest aperture

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
