Canon's PowerShot range offers up some surprising models, from the S95 and G12 at the top end, down to larger, more affordable models at the bottom.

Canon PowerShot SX150 IS review

 

14.1MP budget compact superzoom

Excellent zoom range ; Advanced image stabilisation ; PASM shooting modes ; 720p HD movies with stereo sound ; AA batteries (Rechargeable)

Image quality drops off sharply from ISO 800 ; Dated looks ; Slow-ish shot-to-shot times ; No Full HD video support ; AA batteries (Alkaline)

Canon traditionally updates its SX budget compact superzoom line every August/September, and 2011 sees the release of the £199 Canon PowerShot SX150 IS. The SX130 IS replacement is a case of evolution over revolution – not a bad thing, considering the...

Canon PowerShot SX150 IS review

 

A low-cost camera with a generous 12x zoom, but in most other respects – including image and video quality – it's nothing special and battery performance is a worry

Canon Powershot SX150 IS review

 

Canon's Powershot SX series of camera is a compact camera at heart but tries to bridge the gap between super-zoom cameras and the regular compact ones by providing a more powerful optical zoom lens and manual controls like a DSLR.

The Canon Powershot SX150 IS has its share of niggles. But it is nevertheless a good buy. Definitely, not an upgrade over its predecessor but worth a look for first-time buyers. Casual users who wish to have a truckload of manual controls will enjoy...

Canon Powershot SX210 IS85/100

Picture quality in good light, features for price

Shots in lowlight, delay in taking a photo when flash is used

The Canon Powershot SX150 IS performs very well indeed in good light. Photos are crisp, colours vibrant and pictures are bright. In fact the camera outperforms a lot of similarly priced cameras in those conditions. Lowlight is a challenge and in some...

With the advanced features of Canon's PowerShot range, combined with a price tag which catches the eye, the PowerShot SX150 IS is full of promise. The question is - how does it perform when put to...

Canon PowerShot SX150 IS review

 

Canon's PowerShot SX150 IS superzoom offers fullmanual shooting controls as seen on pro SLRs, and lets youcapture them using a 14-megapixel sensor. But can one particularweak spot detract too much from the attraction of thesefeatures?

Good picture quality. Decent built. Good zoom. Easy to use.Manual controls

Poor LCD screen. Only 720p video recording

Overall the Canon SX150 IS impresses. It combines great pictureand video quality with advanced controls in an attractive body.It's a shame the LCD won't let your pictures show you how good theyare when you're still out and about shooting, but it...

extreme zoom ; light and compact body ; easy handling for beginners

missing optical viewfinder or ELV ; low resolution LCD ; only 720p video instead of Full HD ; standard batteries supplied instead of rechargeable batteries
