        Product information
        Our experts have some serious techsperience, and they think you'll love this Canon PowerShot SX540 HS Bridge Camera. This compact camera from Canon gives you a lot more power for your pound. It's got a massive 50x optical zoom, and 20.3 megapixel CMOS sensor for super sharp photos, even when shooting from a distance...and all without breaking the bank.

        CMOS sensor


        Improving on the Canon PowerShot SX530HS, the new SX540HS has a bigger CMOS sensor, driven by a faster DIGIC 6+ processor with iSAPS technology that means you can shoot images up to 20.3 megapixels in size quicker than before, with less time wasted between shots.

        The PowerShot SX540 has an impressive 50x optical zoom that covers the equivalent of 24 – 1200 mm on a 35 mm camera. Such a broad focal range, from wide-angle and standard shooting, right through to super telephoto, means that you can use the SX530HS for almost any subject, from sweeping landscapes or detailed architecture shots, to close up expressive portraits right through to sport shooting and wildlife photography, snapping from a distance.

        Intelligent optical image stabilisation counteracts camera shake so fewer of your shots will be affected. It automatically adapts to shooting conditions so that your photos and videos are sharper and more detailed – even if you're shooting at full zoom or handheld in dim light.

        Precise shooting


        Keeping track of distant subjects at high zoom is simple with the Canon PowerShot SX540 HS – activate Zoom Framing Assist at the touch of a button, which rapidly zooms the camera out of a scene to help you check where your subject has moved to. As soon as you release the button, you'll zoom straight back to where you were.

        Auto mode has been improved to automatically zoom out when a subject goes out of the frame, helping you maintain them at a preset size. Canon's HS System maintains clearer shots, even in low light – this preserves the true atmosphere of each moment so that you don't always have to use a tripod or flash.

        Stunning images with ease


        The Canon PowerShot SX540 HS is able to shoot 1920 x 1080p Full HD videos complete with stereo sound, so you can record memories in full at the touch of a button.

        Smart Auto mode selects the ideal camera settings for photo and video modes for best results, while Hybrid Auto creates a nifty HD (720p) movie summary of everything you've shot during the day.

        Stable, creative and comfortable


        An Intelligent Image Stabiliser lets you shoot on the move while still achieving superbly sharp results. Capture every precious moment and awesome fast action scenes with the camera's highly responsive High-Speed Burst feature.

        There are loads of creative effects on board for you to wow friends and family. Using Full Manual mode to develop your photographic skills and get to understand how light affects your images. Creative Shot cleverly captures five extra images of the original subject complete with different artistic effects.

        The camera's ergonomic grip has been made for improved comfort and steadier shots even at full zoom and those long sessions.

        Better connected

        Shoot and share with the PowerShot SX540 HS that gives you different ways to share and transfer your compositions.

        The PowerShot SX540 HS lets you upload photos and videos direct to social networks with integrated WiFi – or you can use the on-board NFC to transfer files to compatible devices, like a smartphone or tablet, seconds after you've taken them. 

        There's a dedicated smart device app that allows remote control of your camera from a phone, while Image Sync allows for convenient backup to various devices. Combine the camera with a Canon Connect Station (sold separately) for easy sharing on HD TVs, media sites and even online albums.
