Great Camera but Difficult Focus at times

Kirsten, Amazon
10 May 2014
  • Summary: This is a great camera. The video quality is amazing and the pictures look professional. It's great for zooming in on birds outside my window. I was really happy when I realized there is a macro lens feature, meaning you can take close up pictures of things and get them really detailed (example: pollen on a flower). Yes, this camera takes two AA batteries. That can either be a good thing or a bad thing depending on what kind of pictures you want.

  • Summary: So, I got this while on sale during Black Friday for Christmas. I am still trying to figure out all the options, as this is a upgrade from what i am use to using. But once you figure out how to use it I think it is easy and takes wonderful photos. I love the vivid colors and the way it shoots so very clearly. The only thing I would say that would be negative for this camera, no matter what setting i put it on for the focus button for my fast moving kids.

A good point and shoot with lots of flexibility

Avid Reader, Amazon

  • Summary: I got the powershot 160 to replace a powershot 120. I was fairly happy with the 120 except for its lack of wide angle capability. The 160 gave me wide angle plus a slightly greater telephoto range. It also has a convenient separate single press button for video shots. It takes good pictures for a relatively inexpensive point and shoot digital camera.

Why this one is more popular than the more recent model.

  • Summary: The SX100 series of Canon cameras is for the hobbyist photographer (not the professional) who does not require one of Canon's subcompact, capable and cute but tiny Elphs (the SD series) or the upscale S100 series or the superior, faster version of this one--the SX200 series The SX160 and 170 are not bad or mediocre cameras. Canon doesn't make any cameras that give you poorly defined or uncolorful images.

Be sure and order an SD card for it if its intended as an Xmas present

  • Summary: Just got this and its seems great so far. Got this as an Xmas gift for the wife. Typical excellent Canon, I've had two other Canons before. One thing that you might want to note is that it does not come with a memory card. I had several laying around, so no problem for me. But you will need to pick one up if this is intended as an Xmas gift. Your recipient won't be able to do a thing without a memory card.

  • Summary: I've only had it in use a couple of times and I'm pleased overall. The photo's and video I've recorded so far has all been with Auto settings. The pro's: 1. Feels good in my hands, not too large, or small. 2. Zoom is pretty clear as I took a moon shot and a fair amount of details were seen. 3. Image stablazation was apparent as seen during a live action stage show. 4. One button video is super easy. The con's: 1. Zoom is very quick.

  • Summary: Takes great pictures with 16x zoom. Auto mode is very good. A lot of advanced features for every type of shot. Would like to see higher FPM for action shots but still much better then previous camera. Battery life not a problem especially with AA batteries being so easy to buy.
