Canon PowerShot SX420 IS

 

This PowerShot is a good fit for basic snapshots, but beyond a really powerful zoom lens, the SX420 IS does not deliver the performance needed for low light shooting or action photography. Read more in our Full Conclusion.

Very powerful zoom lens ; Effective optical image stabilization ; Dedicated Auto mode button ; Strong built-in flash ; Built-in Wi-Fi

Burst mode is very slow ; No dial to ease operation ; Low light image quality is mediocre ; Limited ISO range ; Battery life is modest ; No RAW mode ; Few filter effects

Canon SX420 IS Review

 

Canon has announced the PowerShot SX420 IS, a budget-friendly long-zoom digital camera. While using a similar design to the SX410 IS that precedes it, the SX420 brings a number of improvements and features to this super-zoom compact line.

The Canon SX420 IS will become available in February 2016 for an estimated retail price of US$299.99 and will be offered in both a matte black color or a bright red option.

perfect for a non-professional

 

I recently decided I wanted to get back to nature/wildlife photography.As I only take "snaps" I couldn't justify £1000 for DSLR & lenses.I discovered Bridge cameras. I've now had the Canon a month,used it quite a bit & think it's brilliant. It's...

Happy Snaps

 

Great camera, massive zoom (needs a tripod at full extension). At 20mp it has great picture quality, shame it's not full HD as that would make it absolutely best in class, but a fantastic camera nontheless, highly recommended
