Canon Powershot SX610 HS Review

 

Reviewed, the compact Canon Powershot SX610 HS which features an 18x optical zoom lens and a 20 megapixel sensor.

18x optical zoom lens with image stabilisation ; Good 3inch screen ; Wi-Fi / NFC connectivity ; 400 shots with ECO mode ; Quick focusing ; Good rubber grips

Increase in megapixels has resulted in more noise, and slower continuous shooting ; Lacks automatic panoramic shooting mode ; Lacks auto HDR shooting mode

The Canon Powershot SX610 HS updates last years SX600 HS with a new design with improved handling, and adds a 20 megapixel sensor instead of the 16 megapixel sensor in the previous version. Whilst this may sound like an improvement, it's resulted in a...

Canon SX610 HS

 

A small PowerShot digital camera, for those who do not know a PowerShot can be little larger than an IXUS the smallest of Canons cameras or as large as the small end of Canons DSLR range, so here it is at the IXUS end of the range.

The Canon SX610 HS measures 10x6x2cm and weights 190grams. The right side has a tight fitting door behind which are AV and HDMI out sockets, above this is a wrist strpap anchor point. The left side has a manual flash deployment button. The base has the...

Canon PowerShot SX610 HS

 

The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is an attractive compact camera with an 18x zoom lens, but image quality takes a step back from last year's edition.

Compact. 18x zoom lens. Quick focus. Creative Shot mode. Crisp rear LCD. Wi-Fi.

Image quality suffers at moderate ISOs. Slow continuous drive mode.

Performance and Conclusions Startup time is a reasonable 1.9 seconds, and the camera locks focus in just a bit over 0.1-second. There's a continuous shooting mode; it capture two images in very rapid succession, but then slows to about 1.8fps. The...

Canon PowerShot SX610 HS

 

The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is the latest basic point-n-shoot model from Canon, but there just isn't much in this camera that will make you take notice of it. The SX610 offers 20.2-megapixels of resolution, but its image quality simply isn't where it...

18x optical zoom lens in thin camera ; Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity ; Very easy to operate ; Shutter lag performance is very good in normal lighting conditions ; Full HD video recording ; 20MP of resolution ; Variety of special effect photos are...

Image quality could be better ; Small 1/2.3-inch image sensor ; Plenty of noise in images shot at mid-ISO range ; Continuous shot modes are slow ; Shutter lag with flash is poor ; No aperture priority or manual control options ; Control buttons on back...

Canon PowerShot SX610 HS Review

 

Last year's PowerShot SX600 HS offered a good balance of performance and features at a reasonable price, so it's perhaps unsurprising that Canon hasn't altered this recipe much for the new SX610 HS. It features the same 18x optically stabilised lens...

The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is a well-designed camera that’s easy to use thanks to its chunky, ergonomic build, logical controls and an intuitive menu design. You can also be sure it’ll snap accurately focussed and well exposed shots.

Canon PowerShot SX610 HS Review: Easy Video Shooter

 

It's the keep-it-simple principle that makes the Canon PowerShot SX610 HS so appealing for those who prefer a no-fuss, no-muss approach to photography, especially for video, which can be overly complicated to shoot, edit and share. If you'd rather have...

Easy to use ; Smile and blink detection ; Quiet zoom for video ; Built-in Wi-Fi ; Built-in image stabilization

No viewfinder ; Low-profile controls

While not as robust as other compact point-and-shoots, the inexpensive SX610 HS is easy to use and takes good video.
