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.

  • Summary: The new inclusion of rechargeable lithium ion battery rather than bog standard AAs aside, the 16 megapixel Canon PowerShot SX170 IS doesn’t appear massively altered from its SX160 IS forebear.

  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX170 IS is an ideal camera for those who want a cheapish camera which is pocketable, yet packs a little more zoom.

  • Pros: Good battery life, Decent image quality, Easy to use menu system, 1cm minimum focusing distance, Range of creative filters
  • Cons: Flash doesn't pop-up automatically, Continuous shooting is slow, No outstanding / unique features
