   Stunning image quality comes via a 20.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 4+ Image Processor for beautiful shots whether you’re picnicking during the day or camping at night.

With the PowerShot SX620 HS camera, you can relax knowing you can capture subjects far off in the distance.

   Other key features include a 3-inch, 922k LCD monitor, and a new feature, Hybrid Auto, which lets you record up to four seconds of video before each image you capture and then combines the footage into a quick video recap of the day—a neat feature for documenting one’s travels.

   Auto Zoom sets the camera to automatically zoom in to help you frame your subject and keep it in focus, while Creative Shot mode takes your original image’s composition, color, and lighting and automatically creates something unique and what Canon says is artistic.
