Canon PowerShot SX150 IS Review

 

The 14.1 megapixel Canon SX150 IS is a superzoom camera with a wide-ranging 12x image-stabilized optical zoom, providing an equivalent focal length range of 28-336mm. Like other advanced Canon compacts, the SX150 is outfitted with a well-rounded...

Canon PowerShot SX150 IS review: Canon PowerShot SX150 IS

 

Canon PowerShot SX150 IS

The ; offers very good photo quality and features for its class, including semimanual and manual shooting modes, and it uses AA-size batteries.

The SX150 IS' shooting performance is miserable, as is its battery life, especially using alkaline batteries.

If a long lens, AA batteries, and some creative control over your photos are what you're after, the Canon PowerShot SX150 IS is a good choice. That is, as long as you don't mind it being painfully slow.

Canon PowerShot SX150 IS

 

Canon's PowerShot SX150 IS is capable of capturing some very sharp images across its 12x zoom range, but is hindered by high noise levels at almost every ISO setting.

Very sharp images. 12x zoom range. Large LCD. Good control layout.

Very noisy images. Slow performance. Large when compared to other 12x superzoom cameras. Uses AA batteries.

Performance and Conclusions Despite having D-SLR-like control buttons, the SX150 IS does not come close to SLR-like performance. It takes about 2.7 seconds to start up and take a shot, and can only capture a new photo every 1.1 seconds after that. Its...

Reviewed positively although deemed a tad pricey for the features, the SX150 is a decent all-around travel zoom. The 14 megapixel CCD sensor and 28mm wide-angle are both a little outdated at this point, but there are probably now some good deals to be...
