Canon PowerShot SX170 IS

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SX170 IS delivers a 16x zoom range at a low price, but images are noisy and the camera is a slow performer.
  • Pros: Sharp lens. 16x zoom range. Good control layout.
  • Cons: Images on the noisy side. Slow performance. So-so rear display. Video capture is limited to 720p. No Wi-Fi. Not exactly pocketable.

Canon PowerShot SX170 IS good for budget buyers after manual controls

CNET
23 November 2013
  • Summary: If you hate AA batteries, but like inexpensive compacts with manual controls, the 16x zoom Canon PowerShot SX170 IS takes a good photo. Otherwise, seek out its predecessor, the SX160 IS.
  • Cons: Despite the switch to a rechargeable battery, the SX170 is still pretty bulky and its shooting performance is too slow for fast-moving subjects like kids and pets -- especially indoors.

Câmera versus Câmera
23 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Mais encorpadas, a Nikon L320 e a Sony DSC-H100 são indicadas para quem prefere modelos alimentados pelas populares baterias formato AA. Já a Samsung WB250F é a opção para os que não dispõe de muito espaço na bolsa: ela é a menor das quatro.
  • Pros: Lente de superzoom óptico 16x e de ângulo largo (28 mm) favorece todo tipo de composição, Sensor de 16 MP: fotos de até 30 x 40 cm, qualidade profissional de impressão, Grande monitor LCD de 3 polegadas e boa resolução (230.000 pontos), Equipada com estabilizador de imagens que se adapta automaticamente a várias situações, como quando a câmera é movida em panning ou quando você filma andan...
