14 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Overall the Canon SX150 IS impresses. It combines great picture and video quality with advanced controls in an attractive body. It's a shame the LCD won't let your pictures show you how good they are when you're still out and about shooting, but it shouldn't be a sticking point for most people.
  • Pros: Good picture quality. Decent built. Good zoom. Easy to use. Manual controls.
  • Cons: Poor LCD screen. Only 720p video recording.
