Reviews and Problems with Canon PowerShot SX150 IS
Showing 1-10 of 52
Not as I expected
21 July 2013
Summary: I bought this to document artwork and it doesn't really work well for this which is a disappointment. Pictures of 3-d objects works alright but 2-d pictures are not clear at all which is what I needed it for. This camera is good for personal use but not professional quality images.
Summary: I purchased this camera at over half-off the list price for my mother, a novice digital camera user who simply wanted it to take snapshots at various functions with the occasional outdoor shot thrown in. Features were less important than ease of use and quality output. She also needed a camera that wasn't too small, and easy to hold. The Canon PowerShot SX150 offered an inexpensive option for her.
Summary: Did not receive what was pictured of even described. It's a good camera to replace an older Cannon SX130. Like the fact that it still takes regular AA or rechargable AA batteries, especially when travelling.
Summary: The camera performs competently for its price point. The biggest drawback that I see is the battery life: if you put this in video mode and record around 5 minutes, you will have to replace the batteries. What's good is that it takes standard sized AA batteries. But it only holds 2 batteries. Why not make the case slightly larger and hold 4 batteries?
