Canon Powershot ELPH 500 HS Digital Camera
Digital Camera Description
The Canon Powershot ELPH 500 HS is a Ultra-Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 12 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 100-3200 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-3200. With 12 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.
A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Canon Powershot ELPH 500 HS to compensate for camera shake.
This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/1600 to 15s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/1600, fast action cannot be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability.
The Canon Powershot ELPH 500 HS features a 9-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance.
This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Canon Powershot ELPH 500 HS and no provision to add one.
