  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX150 IS is a neat little camera with some interesting tricks up its sleeve. Its weighty, contoured body makes it nicer to hold than some of its smaller peers, and in favourable conditions at low ISO settings, image quality is very good. A versatile lens and effective image stabilization system make this a great 'go-everywhere' camera as long as you can live with the relatively slow performance and poor battery life.
  • Pros: User-friendly, easy to operate interface/design, PASM shooting modes, Versatile 12X zoom lens, Effective optical image stabilization, Good image quality at low ISO sensitivities, Decent, if not outstanding sharpness across zoom range, Reliable metering/AWB systems in most conditions, Ubiquitous AA batteries will appeal to some consumers
  • Cons: Relatively sluggish operation especially when using flash, Image quality drops off above ISO 400 as noise levels increase, Sharpness drops off towards frame edges throughout zoom range (and CA is noticeable), 230,000 dot screen isn't as sharp and detailed as we'd like, 'Chunky' form factor makes the camera less compact and pocketable than competitors, Battery life from alkaline AAs is disappointingly low (sometimes <100 shots depending on use)

Canon PowerShot SX150 IS

Camera Labs

  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX150 IS is budget superzoom with a 12x stablised optical zoom lens and a 14.1 Megapixel sensor. Bigger than compact superzooms like the Panasonic ZS8 / TZ18, Sony HX7V, and Canon's own PowerShot SX230 HS, the PowerShot SX150 IS combines advanced control including PASM exposure modes and manual focussing with accessible features including intelligent Auto exposure with scene detection, Creative filter effects and Smart shutter with smile detection.
  • Pros: 12x zoom with intelligent optical stabiliser., PASM exposure modes and manual focus., Creative filter effects., Budget price.
  • Cons: Lens suffers from chromatic aberration., Slow continuous shooting., Poor high ISO noise performance., Poor battery life with alkaline AAs.

  • Summary: A very traditional camera, the £160 PowerShot SX150 IS is keenly priced, yet packed with the kind of filters and scene modes we would expect to find on a more expensive shooter. It's let down by the choice of battery format. Otherwise it's a great choice for digital photography beginners and anyone on a budget.
  • Cons: AA batteries; Some noise in deep blue.

CNET
24 April 2012
  • Summary: Die Canon PowerShot SX150 IS bietet für 130 Euro einen zwölffachen optischen Zoom sowie manuelle Einstellungsmöglichkeiten und setzt auf AA-Batterien.

Test: Canon PowerShot SX150 IS (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online

  • Conclusion: Wenn Sie eine griffige, zoomstarke und vergleichsweise günstige Kamera suchen, dann können Sie über die SX150 nachdenken. Die Kamera bietet automatische und manuelle Aufnahmemöglichkeiten und filmt in HD-Auflösung. Allerdings stören die langsame Auslöseverzögerung und die durchwachsene Bildqualität.
  • Pros: Manuelle und automatische Aufnahme-Modi, Lange Batterie-Laufzeit, Griffiges Gehäuse
  • Cons: Bildrauschen, Auslöseverzögerung, Objektivgüte
