  • Summary: Although the Canon PowerShot SX500 offers a pretty nice feature list, its performance is below average in enough areas that it's tough to recommend this camera to most photographers who are just seeking a large zoom camera. has made one of the least expensive 30X or larger zoom cameras on the market. However, this camera's image quality isn't of the highest quality and its performance level is quite a bit lower than is desirable.

Canon Powershot SX500 IS Review

Digital Photography School

  • Excerpt: A year or so ago I was attracted by Canon’s SX30 IS, a 35X digicam. So much so that I bought one for family use. And it turned out to be ideal for the purpose, especially in shooting video at the long end! … although this was somewhat tempered by its less than Full HD 1280×720 pixel video capture. Still, it got some great movies over the hols! Then this feller turned up! Not as long a zoom. Sure! But smaller! And cheaper!

  • Conclusion: Zum moderaten Preis bietet Canon eine zoomstarke Kamera mit einfacher Bedienung und vielen Möglichkeiten. Automatikprogramme und manuelle Modi sind in der 200-Euro-Preisklasse noch lange keine Selbstverständlichkeit. Für Videoaufnahmen stimmt der Funktionsumfang, allerdings erscheint die 720p-Auflösung nicht mehr zeitgemäß. Das größte Manko der SX500 IS ist die schwache Bildqualität. Bildrauschen ist genauso allgegenwärtig wie Farbsäume an harten Objektkanten.
  • Pros: Einfache Bedienung, Viele Funktionen, Scharfes Display
  • Cons: Detaildarstellung ab ISO 400, Bildrauschen, Farbsäume, Auslöseverzögerung im Tele
