Canon PowerShot SX160 IS Point & Shoot Camera (Black) Price: Rs.9699

Key Features

  • 16x Optical Zoom and 4x Digital Zoom
  • f/3.5 - f/5.9 Aperture
  • 16.0 Megapixel Camera
  • CCD Image Sensor
  • 3 inch TFT LCD
  • 35 mm Equivalent Focal Length: 28 - 448 mm
  • HD Recording

With compact cameras, it becomes quite easy to carry it around, no matter where you go. The PowerShot camera by Canon is a great compact camera that can fit into your bag or loose pocket so that it always remains available when you need to click a quick snap.

Zoom it Out

With the incorporation of the 28 mm Wide-Angle Lens, you can get a 16 X Optical Zoom level on the camera, which can also go up to 32 X with Zoom Plus. The optical zoom results in high precision, quality images even from a distance as long as it does not progress into the digital zoom range. The in-built optical image stabilizer greatly reduces camera shakes so that you can easily achieve stunning photos and images.

Automatic

The Smart AUTO function is a very helpful mode in the compact camera as it allows even the most amateur photographer to achieve some of the best shots possible. This mode is incorporated so that you do not need to worry too much about exposure, focal length and other feature settings that DSLR users need to keep in mind. The Smart AUTO feature can intelligently select the ideal settings for the compact camera which is based on 32 predefined shooting scenarios that will ensure the best possible stills or videos.

Media Capture

With the optics already incorporated with the powerful image sensor, you can expect to take high quality 720 p videos with the 16.0 MP compact camera. The Canon DIGIC4 image processor delivers some stunning visuals thanks to the high image quality output. Apart from being able to record in 720 p, the camera is also able to record good quality stereo sound to go with the video files.

Other Features

With the high speed auto focus mode, you can take high quality images across a wide variety of situations. The auto focus mode works well with the optical image stabilizer and the result is a host of highly detailed shots that are derived from this camera. This also works well in terms of low light conditions since there is little need to boost the ISO sensitivity and risk noisy shots.

latest and Great product from Canon

well i don't want to repeat wat's mentioned in the specifications because u need do your homework on knowing ISO, FPS, Image stabilizer and bla bla before buying any Digi cam of 9k+. well to start with, it is one of the best point to shoot cameras out there in current market. The reasons for my buying are:

1.Optical Zoom 16x : (It is a awsum feature for this price)..clear image for longer distance object.

The reasons for my buying are:

1.Optical Zoom 16x : (It is a awsum feature for this price)..clear image for longer distance object.

2. AA batteries : i was looking for a cam which can take AA rechargeable batteries, because they are cheap and readily available anywhere in the world. Unlike in other cams they provide lithium-ion batteries they are like RS2500 to carry a spare and moreover just imagine u r in a big trip and batteries are down...lithium-ion has less recharge cycles though. lithium-ion has advantages like low weight and more charge carry.

3.CCD Image sensor : they provide accurate and great picture than CMOS sensor.

4.Look and Feel.

5.Good Image Stabilizer.

6. Lastly it is Latest, released in OCT 2012.

7. Ppl say AA batteries will drain faster...i didn't face that problem..my new camilion rechargeable batteries 2000mah which came along with this pack gave me around 300 pics and was ON all the time. ordinary batteries gives less shots than this...(it is better to replace batteries after 15-20 recharge cycles it shud cost u less than Rs 300)

Cons
1. no Inbuilt Panorama..big deal..there are many free panorama software, with which u can stitch images later.
2. 0.8 FPS (I have no intention of taking more images in 1 sec)
3. 720p recording (Not a bit con but people who consider 1080i recording for them a note, for me 6min of 720p took almost 1gb and it was great on my 40inch LCD). just youtube it for test videos taken using canon sx160.

Note: it is completely my point of view.

PowerShot SX 150IS or the SX160IS. Is it really worth the extra 2K?

I have an SX150IS (bought it from a local Canon store), and I'd like to throw some light on this new upgraded version- SX160is.

For an extra 2K what you're gonna get is-
1. 16MP vs 14.1 MP [more pixels crammed into the same old 1/2.3" sensor.Which means no substantial increase in overall image quality]
2. 16x optical zoom vs 12x. Now this is a nice upgrade.
3. Shutter speed - 1/3200 secs vs 1/2500 secs. Counts ONLY if the subject is well lit because the camera has limited low light shooting capabilities.

Bottom line : 16x zoom is the only real upgrade

Bottom line : 16x zoom is the only real upgrade

Here is a regular Pros & Cons list, and this applies to both the cameras:-

Pros
1. DSLR like controls-Full manual control, including manual focus(controlled by a dial) and PASM shooting modes. This feature is excellent if you plan on buying a DSLR later, or diving into serious photography.

2. Great zoom.

3. Pop up flash system avoids shadow of the lens barrel in photos.

4. Long exposures - upto 15 secs. Lets you create light paintings.

5. AA battery - available in every roadside stall. You'll never run out of juice.

6. Great macro shooting. 1 cm macro is a killer spec.

7. Good image stabilisation.

Cons:
1. Significant shutter lag. You'll need to release the shutter much earlier to get the desired shot but thats fine when you get used to it. I mean you'll learn to click early.

2. Image quality decreases drastically beyond ISO400. Anything above IS0400 gives crappy, noisy images.

3. Disappointing battery life. Dont expect more than 200 shots. Continuous HD recording over 20 minutes is impossible.

4. Low light photos tend to be noisy.

5. Not so compact.Wont fit into your pocket.

6. Slow continuous shooting - 0.9fps

If you dont want the full manual controls, go for the IXUS 510HS - Ultra compact, with 3.2" touch screen Wifi and Super Slow motion video recording(lower resolution).

Hope this helps!

Dissappointing Camera

Got this camera from a local dealer sometime back. Unfortunately, the quality of the camera photos is worse than what I have on Lumia 720.

Beware people, do not go for it! There are several other options to explore.

Good Point and Shoot Cam with a limited Manual Mode

If you are looking for a Point and Shoot camera with the advantage of manual control so that you can learn photography on the cheap DO NOT BUY THIS CAM...

The first problem is the ISO which goes only from 100 to 1600 and anything after 400 ISO on this cam is useful only for social networking sites and not for prints of any size. The noise on this is so much past 400 ISO and since it is limited to 1600 you cant really use it for low light as well.

The second problem is the aperture , it starts at 3.5 and ends at 8, at 8 you do get focus till infinity but at 3.5 you still cant separate the...

The second problem is the aperture , it starts at 3.5 and ends at 8, at 8 you do get focus till infinity but at 3.5 you still cant separate the subject from the back ground unless the background is very far.

The only good thing is that it is the shutter speed which is as long as 15 seconds and at its fastest at 1/3200th of a second so freezing action is easy but that is possible only in good lightning conditions, on low light with aperture at 3.5 and ISO at 1600 you get highly under exposed pictures.

This camera will definitely leave you wanting for more if you buy it solely on the merit that it has a manual mode and as for as learning photography with this.... well all you will learn is that this camera has lots of limitations.

To be fair this is a good Point and Shoot Camera .... 16x zoom is more than what you want on any camera and in this it has good detail through out its focal length and since it has AA batteries getting spare ones when you run out of charge on a day out is easy. But it is not portable as some other Canon cameras with 8x zoom which you can easily fit in your pocket , this you can not keep in your pocket even if you wear cargo it will still be uncomfortable to carry it. It has a CCD sensor and not a CMOS sensor and the only selling point is its 16x Zoom.

To sum it up it is a good Point and Shoot camera with a limited Manual mode....its better to buy just a Point and Shoot cam and if you really want to learn Photography, buy the most Basic DSLR (Either Canon 1100D with a 50 mm lens or the Nikon 3100 with AF-S 50 mm lens)

Good one

The real drawback is, this camera shows low battery immediately after i plug in the new disposable batteries. That is why i'm using the re-chargeable ones now. (View complete review)
