Canon Powershot SX430 IS Features
The Canon Powershot SX430 IS features a 20 megapixel CCD sensor, and a 45x optical zoom lens. The 45x optical zoom lens is equivalent to 24mm at the wide-angle end of the lens, zooming to 1080mm at the telephoto end of the lens (in 35mm equivalent terms). There is built-in optical image stabilisation, which is why the camera's name ends in IS, and this gives approximately 2.5 stops of stabilisation.
A 3inch screen (230K dots) can be found on the back. The mode is switched using a button (also on the back). There are a number of scene modes available, as well as an Auto mode to make it easy for beginners and when in the P mode, you can also select different colour options. On the front is a focus assist lamp to help the camera focus in low-light.
The camera records 720p video, with mono sound, and optical zoom is available whilst recording.
Wi-Fi and NFC are built-in - this lets you remotely control the camera from your smartphone or tablet, as well as transfer images, or add GPS location information to your photos.
