Reacquiring Subjects Lost after Zooming (Framing Assist) (PowerShot SX520 HS)


If you lose track of a subject while zoomed in, you can find it more easily by temporarily zooming out.

1. Press the <Power> button to turn the camera on.

2. Press and hold the <> button.

The camera zooms out and displays a white frame around the area previously shown (before you pressed the <> button).

3. Aim the camera so that the subject enters the white frame, and then release the <> button.
  • The previous magnification is now restored, so that the area outlined in white fills the screen again.

  • Some shooting information is not displayed while the camera is zoomed out.
  • During movie shooting, the white frame is not displayed if you press the < > button. Also note that a changed zoom factor and camera operating sounds are recorded.
  • If you prefer to shoot at the zoom factor of the screen in step 2, press the shutter button all the way down.
  • You can adjust the zoom factor that the camera reverts to when you release the < > button by moving the zoom lever to resize the white frame while you hold the < > button.
  • To adjust the area displayed when the < > button is pressed, access MENU - > [ ] tab -> [Display Area], and choose one of the three options.
  • The zoom factor cannot be changed with the < > button after you press the shutter button all the way down in self-timer mode.
