The 530 HS actually has a lower-resolution sensor than its spiritual predecessor, the 510 HS. This change is ostensibly to increase the camera's performance at high ISO, and it remains among the best on the market. The same 12x zoom and 3.2-inch touchscreen make an appearance here, and Canon has also included an apparently-frustrating built-in WiFi. Touch screen issues once again plague this model, with laggy controls spoiling the user experience. It's also probably more expensive than it should be for this feature-set, so we recommend looking elsewhere for a travel compact.
