Advanced Point and Shoot cameras are simple to use even though they come packed with a host of different features that can make photography fun for even the greenest lensman. The Canon PowerShot SX 500 is a great camera for beginners as well as for professionals to serve as an emergency backup camera.
The camera is equipped with a high performance 16 MP image sensor that can be used even for low light photography with adequate artificial lighting, often supplied by the in-built flash. The camera is quite compact for the kind of lens that it comes with. The sensor-lens arrangement is finely tuned to take high quality images over a wide range of situations.
This camera is capable of taking photos over quite a distance. The lens can zoom in to 30 times more than standard focus (30 X) which lets you take pictures of subjects that are at quite a distance away from you. Get in on the action without even physically being there as long as you are within the 30 X range of the camera to capture that awesome shot you always wanted.
Most camera that come with Auto Mode for Focusing, do so at the expense of speed. The Canon PowerShot on the hand is perfectly capable of taking pictures in the Auto Focus mode, with little or no lag in speed between focusing and clicking the perfect shot.
This camera is ultra-compact and loaded with a really powerful wide-angle lens with optical zoom along the range of 24 – 720 mm. The slim profile can easily trick you into thinking that the camera skimps on features to fit into the profile. On closer examination however, you can see that you have most if not all the manual controls that can be seen on a quintessential DSLR camera. This provides you with quality in all your well times images.
This camera is capable of setting the IS levels automatically for almost all situations which results in crystal clear pictures that can be captured by just about anyone with the photographer’s eye. Capture the precious moments in the form of photos or videos. The intelligent IS can eliminate shakes by simple analysis of the motion sensed through the camera body. Taking into account the subject and the camera, the Intelligent IS can identify the shot type and make adjustments accordingly. You also have Zoom with Framing Assist.
Value for Money--Nothing to match its Zoom of 30X at this price.
