Every traveler knows you can find any number of souvenirs during your travels, but there are few you’ll value as much as your travel photos. For some people, a camera is always is in hand, and that’s when having the right balance between quality and convenience is of the utmost importance. The new PowerShot SX520 HS from Canon is compact and equipped with a super-zoom, making it easier to get the shots you want without needing a long, heavy zoom lens.


One of the key features of the PowerShot SX520 HS is the 42-times optical zoom, which is fully accessible in both photo and video modes. It’s great for getting close-ups of family in crowded tourist areas or just getting a nice shot of a landmark in the distance. The Zoom Frame Assist feature makes zooming in or out from a specific target easy so you don’t miss out on your chance for the perfect shot and the built-in image stabilizer helps keep photo memories crisp and clear. Canon’s Creative Shot feature helps turn any photo into a work of art.


The 16-megapixel PowerShot SX520 HS can capture HD video in 1080p so you can enjoy your favorite travel moments again and again, be they still or in motion. Starting this month, it’s available for $399.99.
