Summary: In August of 2012 Canon announced two new SX-series PowerShot cameras, both of which boast powerful Canon Zoom lenses. What we have here is the slightly more affordable SX160 IS, which features many of the same features as the SX500 IS , namely a 16-megapixel image sensor, HD video recording, a...
Pros: Powerful 16x zoom lens, Wide 28mm angle, Full manual control, Many color effects in shooting mode, Color effects can be applied in playback, Macro AF can focus at 0.4 inch, Can take stills in movie mode, Dedicated movie button, Thumb wheel aids menu navigation
Cons: Mediocre performance in low light, Slow burst shooting, Flash is slow to charge, Autofocus could be faster, Low battery life, Low-resolution LCD, Narrow LCD viewing angle pointing downward
Excerpt: This is a camera that a proportion of the users will love as it uses ‘AA’ batteries. It looks almost basic in its design however it offers a decent zoom and a large image size yet it is small enough to fit inside the majority of pockets.
Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SX160 IS has a decent spec considering its slender price tag, and it performs reasonably well for the money too. But don't expect too much: the LCD screen's viewing angle is poor, we're not fans of the AA batteries, and the pictures are soft and underwhelming.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX160 IS is priced at Rs 12,995 (MRP), but you can buy it for a few hundred rupees less from online stores, and that too with a case, rechargeable batteries, a charger and a 4GB SD card included as freebies. At this price point, the flaws in performance can be overlooked.
Summary: If you're used to pocket-sized cameras that you can slip away when not in use then the Canon PowerShot SX160 IS is going to be a big surprise to you. It has to be held all the time, hung around your neck or put in a bag.
Conclusion: Die Canon PowerShot SX160 HS spricht Fotografen an, die auf der Suche nach einer einfach zu bedienenden Kamera sind, die auf kleine, fummelige Tasten verzichtet. Die Ausstattungs-Höhepunkte sind der 16fach-Zoom mit Bildstabilisator und die manuellen Steuermöglichkeiten.
Pros: 16fach-Zoom mit Stabilisator, Manueller Modus, Batterie-Laufzeit, Einfache Bedienung
Cons: Langsame Verarbeitungs-Geschwindigkeit, Bildrauschen ab ISO 400, Farbsäume im Tele, Mäßig scharfes Display
