Canon PowerShot SX530 HS

 

The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is a fairly compact superzoom camera with a 50x zoom lens, but it can be slow to focus when zoomed in all the way.

50x zoom ratio. Solid control layout. Responsive performance. Fairly compact. Framing assist function. Canon Creative Shot mode. Integrated Wi-Fi with NFC.

Can be slow to lock focus when zoomed. No EVF. HD video limited to 1080p30. Pricey.

Performance and Conclusions The SX530 HS starts and shoots in about 1.2 seconds, which is pretty speedy when you consider that its big lens has to extend to the ready position in that time. Its autofocus speed is quick at the wide angle, about...

The big canon of a zoom with solid image stabilization offers a lot of fun, and the built-in flash is very effective. Though tasteful filters and photo effects are appealing, the burst mode is sluggish and the camera lacks RAW mode. Image quality is...

Canon SX530 HS Review

The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is a super-zoom camera with a 50x optical zoom lens. Launched in January 2015 it's an update to the PowerShot SX520 HS launched just six months previously. As is often the case when new Canon compacts are introduced, the...

50x optical stabilised zoom ; Wifi and NFC ; PASM modes ; 2nd control dial

Slow full resolution continuous shooting ; No slow motion movie modes ; Poor battery life

The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is a new super-zoom camera that updates the SX520 HS released only six months earlier. The main difference is an increase in the zoom range - up to 50x with an equivalent range of 24-1200mm from the earlier model's 38x....

Canon PowerShot SX530 HS Review: 50x Superzoom

 

If you're buying the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS, you're in it for the powerful 50x optical zoom. Sure, the SX530 HS is more versatile than a smartphone, giving you more manual and creative controls, better low-light performance than most phones and an...

Powerful 50x zoom with little distortion ; Seamless wireless sharing options ; All-day battery life.

Plastic body feels cheap ; Relatively small maximum aperture limits low-light shooting ; No touch screen, fixed LCD.

The Canon PowerShot SX offers a powerful 50x zoom in a lightweight, DSLR-like body, but don't expect many frills.

Canon PowerShot SX530 HS big zoom camera

 

A 50x optical zoom camera that's a good option if you want to start photographing wildlife

Useful 50x optical zoom ; Manual controls ; Live view of exposure adjustments on the screen
