Canon PowerShot SX170 IS

PC Magazine
19 January 2014
  • 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

16 December 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.
  • Pros: The Canon PowerShot SX170 IS is a good choice for budget-conscious buyers who want to do more than point-and-shoot, thanks to its semimanual and manual shooting modes and large, comfortable controls.
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Fazit: Die Canon PowerShot SX170 IS punktet im Test durch ihren praxisgerechten Brennweitenbereich und den für die Klasse ungewöhnlichen manuellen Einstellmöglichkeiten. Die Bildqualität bleibt allerdings unter dem Durchschnitt, Neuerungen gegenüber dem Vorgängermodell gibt es kaum.
  • Pros: Hohes Tempo, Vielseitiges Zoom, Lange Akkulaufzeit
  • Cons: Rauschen und Kantenschärfe, Wenige Neuerungen, Autofokus im Tele, Farbsäume
