Canon PowerShot SX30IS Review

What Digital Camera
9 November 2010
  • Summary: Creatively it would be unfair to compare the SX30 directly with a budget DSLR, as there are many areas where it cannot compete; in focus speed, viewfinder and burst mode especially.
  • Pros: Huge zoom, very useable for this type of camera, lots of functionality
  • Cons: Motorised zoom, electronic viewfinder, burst mode, price

  • Summary: The Canon Powershot SX30 IS is a 14 Megapixel super-zoom with a 35x optical zoom lens and a fully articulated 2.7in screen. An update to the hugely successful PowerShot SX20 IS, it adds significantly to the older model's zoom range at both ends with a 24mm ultra-wide-angle extending a long, long way...
  • Pros: Massive 35x optical zoom., Excellent optical image stabilisation., Fully articulated screen., Flash hotshoe.
  • Cons: Fringing at zoom extremes., Poor continuous shooting., No RAW mode., No lens hood.

Canon Powershot SX301S – Review

D-Photo and The Photographer's Mail
23 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Ashley Kramer zooms in on this compact To a DSLR user, the zoom range on a modern superzoom compact camera is a thing of wonder. Take Canon’s PowerShot SX30IS for example. To match the 24mm wide angle aspect of the lens is easy enough but to reach out all the way to 840mm takes some doing.
  • Pros: Massive zoom range, Good manual controls, Exceptional detail levels, Very capable stabilisation
  • Cons: Average EVF, Best results at lower ISO settings

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: This is probably the best super-zoom we’ve had our hands on. There’s slight issues of noise indoors, the odd kink here and there that might have been a little smoother given an almost infinite amount of product development time but, ultimately, it is a winner.
  • Pros: Ridiculous zoom, good screen, bags of fun and very hard to take bad shots on
  • Cons: Too noisy at high ISO, the AF doesn’t always hit at high zoom
