Not what wanted

gramma, B&H Photo
16 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Just returned from a trip to Africa and am happy with the pictures I took with this camera. However, I specifically asked for a camera with a good viewfinder. The view finder was very hard to use, couldn't see clearly what I was taking a picture of. I had to resort to always using the bigger picture screen.
  • Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time

Weakly

  • Summary: Had a Canon SX 30 a few years back sold the SX 30 looking to go the next step up...Sadly wish I still had the SX 30 around despite going through lots of double AA batteries.
  • Pros: Quality photos, numerous presets, Lithium Battery.
  • Cons: Lens gave out after a year and the lens is not removable or repairable on these hybrids.

Not as good as SX 40

pwren, B&H Photo
5 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I am a birder and amateur photographer. I have owned, and loved, both the predessors to this model. Loved the SX40 so much I recommended it to numerous friends...think I must have sold 15 or so of those cameras for Canon. I could get good clear shots of birds and animals that, at times, would turn out better than my husband's shots with his full frame DSLR and big telephoto lens. We both shoot in JPEG.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Stabilization, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality

"Could have been the best."

  • Pros: Great zoom with lots of options
  • Cons: NO instruction manual. No kidding. The manual comes on a CD that has to be loaded on the computer, but you need a cable to attached the camera to your computer before the manual will load and the cable is NOT included. Can't load your pic's either

Blisset, DP Review
2 October 2013
  • Excerpt: It's the best superzoom camera, but you can use it in full daylight only . It has a very poor F6.5 at full zoom , I hope Canon do much better in next model, because if you want use it in evening it's blind in videos and photos without flash. The bad F6.5 aperture cause diffraction limit so the real resolution is 1,7 megapixel s. Another bad thing is it has very slow autofocus (it takes about 3 seconds to focus!

Camera OK, accessory kit not.

CB, Amazon
28 July 2013
  • Summary: The camera seems fine, but the kit is of almost no value except for the battery. The kit comes with two tripods. Both flimsy little things that are absolutely not useable with this camera when the telephoto lens is extended. I wish I had bought the extras separately myself and gotten things that really work.

Nice toy

20 June 2013
  • Excerpt: It is a very nice camera with fantastic zoom capability, but unfortunately the image quality is not very good. If you got used to DSLR image quality then don't even think about buying this camera. Digital viewfinder is useless.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Great Zoom, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Poor Flash, Poor Image Quality, Poor Image Stabilization
