20.0 Megapixel Image Sensor

DIGIC 4+ Image Processor 

The Canon DIGIC 4+ Image Processor powers the PowerShot SX420 IS camera's advanced functions and capabilities. Its accelerated processing speed creates fast, responsive performance, for a shooting experience that's easy and natural. The DIGIC 4+ Image Processor also enhances image quality: processing of high ISO shots has been shortened by approximately up to 60% compared to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. This helps significantly reduce noise for brilliant color, smooth gradations and beautiful detail even in low light. The processor's highly efficient design also extends battery life.

Helpful Shooting Modes

The Smart AUTO feature intelligently selects the proper settings for the camera based on predefined shooting situations, so your shots always look like they were taken by a Pro. It also has Scene Modes such as Fisheye Effect, Toy Camera Effect and Monochrome that add some flair to your images.
