    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.


    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.

    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 ...

    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.

    2. AA batteries : i was looking for a cam which can take AA rechargeable batteries, be...

    Great Product from Canon

    A worthy upgrade to SX150IS. The greatest feature is of course a super intelligent auto focus which even optimises the zoom range. Also, capturing HD video had never been so easy, even in low light. The Digic4 processor is great.
    The only downside is the bundled software that came with this cam. It is too slow even on my notebook with Core I5 processor and crashes more often. But you can always take the card out of the cam and store pictures directly from it.

    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 sta...

    Awesome Camera

    Camera is too good comapred to other camers in the segment. This has really got a nice zoom, and can stand against SLRs.

    1. Superb Quality pics
    2. Easy to click
    3. AA batteries, which can be changed anytime
    4. Manual mode for learners

    Didnt find yet in the price of 9k

    Its best guys, Dont think, just go for it.You will love it. Buy only from WS Retail seller, coz that has the best service, replacement, and delivery ;)

    In my association, everyone is fond of taking pics and most of them are having very expensive cameras (30 k to 1.5 lacs).

    canon Power Shot SX 160

    It is good camera with shutter speed 1/3000 to capture image quickly when you zoom an object. Only cons I observed that the battery back up is low. Better to keep one pair of charged battery when you are shooting outdoor.
