Canon Powershot SX530 HS Review

 

We review the new Canon Powershot SX530 HS - the mid range 50x ultra zoom bridge camera from Canon.

50x optical zoom lens ; Optical image stabilisation ; Wi-Fi / NFC connectivity ; Manual controls ; Good colour and image quality ; Lots of creative effects

Lacks automatic panoramic and HDR shooting modes ; Short battery life unless ECO mode is enabled ; Lacks EVF

The Canon Powershot SX530 HS is a useful update to the SX520, offering additional optical zoom, with a 50x optical zoom lens, whilst still delivering good image quality, as well as offering built-in Wi-Fi and NFC for those that want to transfer photos...

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

Feels a little cheap ; Limiting aperture and shutter values

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...

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....
