Canon PowerShot SX160 IS

CNET
29 December 2012
  • Summary: The very competitively-priced Canon PowerShot SX160 IS has a long zoom and high resolution plus a good range of manual controls but you'll have to accept some compromises in image quality. It's a great knockabout point-and-shoot camera for kids though.
  • Cons: Low maximum sensitivity; Takes AA batteries, not a rechargable one; Noise at middling sensitivities.

Canon's 16x SX160 IS gives beginners control

CNET
18 December 2012
  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX160 IS is a good, inexpensive travel-zoom option for those wanting more control over results or who are just getting into photography and don't want to empty their wallets.
  • Cons: The SX160 IS will eat through alkaline batteries; shooting performance is good, but not fast; and picture quality drops off above ISO 400, so it's not a great choice for handheld low-light shots.

Canon Powershot SX160 IS Review

8 November 2012
  • Summary: The SX160 IS has a lot to live up to, as it comes from a line which is known to deliver good features and performance with respect to price. Many a times, a newer camera does not mean a better camera than the predecessor, though that is expected. Sometimes, the changes are minor and cosmetic, and sometimes, the bump in image quality is barely noticeable. So, would you want to toss out your old camera just because a new one is out?
  • Pros: Excellent focal length range with smooth zoom, Runs on AA batteries, Dedicated button for raising flash
  • Cons: Plastic construction is obvious, Not much of an improvement in image quality from SX150 IS

Test: Canon PowerShot SX160 IS (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
28 December 2012
  • 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. Die weiteren Funktionen bewegen sich auf klassenüblichem, durchschnittlichem Niveau. Für Aufnahmen bei Tageslicht geht die Bildqualität in Ordnung, bei wenig Licht stört das starke Rauschen.
  • 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
