So, leave the phone in your pocket next time you want to capture a faraway moment. Smartphones, although capable of great results at close range, are often compromised when it comes to capturing images over long distances. Some smartphones may advertise long zoom capabilities, but due to their slim size, a combination of alternative technologies such as digital zoom, hybrid zoom and a folded optical design are used to capture images and videos from a distance. This means that image stabilisation is limited, and most of the time does not deliver the image quality that is otherwise achieved with a dedicated camera featuring a genuine Canon lens.
The PowerShot Zoom can be used comfortably with one hand too. No need to decide on which capture app to choose on your smartphone, and the fuss of using two fingers to pinch zoom to frame your shot and risk missing the moment altogether; the PowerShot ZOOM gets rid of all that hassle, working in the blink of an eye to capture every fleeting moment.
Just as you keep a smartphone in your pocket, you can keep the PowerShot ZOOM in there too, as it’s light and small so won’t weigh you down like a normal camera. And when you take it out, keep it around your wrist with the included wrist strap for convenient handholding. And then, once you are ready to share, connect easily with the Canon Connect app
