Showcasing the true evolution of the ELPH brand, the new Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS has now instituted a “HS” suffix to represent the inclusion of the HS System. The renaming of the ELPH model will help to better correlate with Canon’s ever-increasing capabilities in its PowerShot digital cameras, while retaining its popular identity.

Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS image quality
Introduced last year, the HS System is a technology used to enhance image quality in low-light situations without the need for a flash. Making up the HS System in the new Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS camera is Canon’s DIGIC 4 Image Processor combined with a High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which helps to reduce noise at high ISO levels and expand the camera's dynamic range, ultimately capturing greater detail and color in images in darker settings, like a wedding reception. With the use of the HS System, consumers are able to capture clearer images with less noise and blur, resulting in brilliant, sharp images.

Having the ability to shoot HD video is imperative when capturing a full sequence of events, such as attending a high-end runway show in New York City or witnessing a baby’s first steps. The Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS now features Full 1080p HD video with Dynamic Image Stabilizer, providing secure, stellar resolution in a compact frame. A new feature called Movie Digest mode, allows consumers to shoot a short video before capturing a still image and then combine a full day’s worth of videos into one clip, making it easier for consumers to relive those special moments again and again.

Helping to make the photographic journey that much easier, the new Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS digital camera has advanced Smart AUTO with 32 different shooting scenes. Smart AUTO is helpful since the camera will automatically select settings that match the scene without the need to switch modes, making it possible to take beautiful photos in a variety of situations.

Tracking desired objects on a screen with ease, Advanced Subject Detection has been added to the Smart AUTO function as well, providing the successful capture of fast moving objects, vehicles or birds flying across the sky. By simply pressing the shutter button, the Advanced Subject Detection automatically identifies certain objects like a fish in an aquarium. After pressing the shutter button, the Servo Auto Focus/Auto Exposure continues to function and the focus and exposure of the moving subject continues to be tracked, making it possible to shoot without the subject passing by.

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS helps to add more artistic flair to images is the inclusion of Toy Camera effect and Monochrome effect to the scene mode category. Toy Camera Effect adds a grainy, blurred look to soften photos, illustrating an old-school, 1960’s appearance and Monochrome mode can make a photo either have black-and-white, blue or sepia tones, displaying a more classic, antiqued appearance.
