Canon PowerShot SX530 HS review

Verdict: 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.

Verdict: Bridge cameras have been defined as cameras that bridge the gap between compact point-and-shoot digicams and full-size DSLRs. Typically the term is applied to cameras with wide range zooms that look like miniature DSLRs.

3.5
Pros: 50x super-zoom, build quality, control layout, 16 MP lens, compact, Canon Creative Shot mode, integrated Wi-Fi with NFC
Cons: Slow while locking the focus when zoomed-in, expensive
Verdict: The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS is a perfect choice for people looking for a compact camera with super-zoom capabilities. The mini-DSLR type SX530 HS can click images from a telephoto distance, just a little slow in focus when zoomed in to the max.

A 50x optical zoom camera that's a good option if you want to start photographing wildlife

 
4.0
Pros: Useful 50x optical zoom, Manual controls, Live view of exposure adjustments on the screen
Cons: Feels a little cheap, Limiting aperture and shutter values
Verdict: Canon's PowerShot SX530 HS may look and feel rather clunky, but it's a versatile camera that packs a massive zoom lens and some good ease-of-use features. We like to call it an all-round camera, simply because you can use it for portraits (people and flowers), landscapes, and super-zoomed close-ups...

Canon PowerShot SX530 HS Review: 50x Superzoom

Pros: Powerful 50x zoom with little distortion, Seamless wireless sharing options, All-day battery life
Cons: Plastic body feels cheap, Relatively small maximum aperture limits low-light shooting, No touch screen, fixed LCD
Verdict: Who it's for : Bird watchers or journalists who need to get close to their subjects without scaring them; Sports fans and parents who need to zoom in on subjects in large stadiums or theaters. Your smartphone camera might take great photos, but only as wide shots.

Canon PowerShot SX530 HS

 
3.5
Pros: 50x zoom ratio. Solid control layout. Responsive performance. Fairly compact. Framing assist function. Canon Creative Shot mode. Integrated Wi-Fi with NFC
Cons: Can be slow to lock focus when zoomed. No EVF. HD video limited to 1080p30. Pricey
Verdict: The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS ($429.99) is one of the smaller cameras available with a 50x zoom ratio, and it doesn't really skimp on features in order to get there. The superzoom uses a 16-megapixel CMOS image sensor that supports 1080p video capture and Canon's unique Creative Shot mode, and its...

This has proved to be a fantastic for me.

 
4.0
Verdict: I am a senior now and use my Canon 530 Hx Sx for personal shots that I can later oil paint. The one thing that I did not consider or know ahead of time that I would not be able to send pictures to my laptop because I have a flip phone and not a smart phone.

Shooting wildlife or sports This isn't your camera.

 
5.0
Pros: Easy to use for basic shots. Yes the 50x telephoto works, but you need your subject to be stationary and some form of stabilization like a tripod or monopod. Film quality good
Cons: Lacking viewfinder makes it hard to find subject and also has slow focus at telephoto range. Filming button ooorly placed, causes extreme shaking when you try to end shooting. On/off button may be poorly placed, I find I often accidentally turn this camera on just carrying it uncased.
Verdict: The SX530 with its 50x telephoto seemed like a good idea when trying to upgrade from an older Lumix with 18x. Unfortunately the SX530 is missing one major element for successful telephoto work, a viewfinder. Got this camera thinking the telephoto range would be great for nature shots.

Great camera for the price

 
5.0
Verdict: I am torn about giving this camera four or five stars. The reason I decided on four is that I'm miffed at Canon for not having a low-cost DSLR camera with a view finder any more. The camera is amazing... it takes great pictures. I haven't had it long enough to try the video part of it out.

Want a great bridge camera

 
5.0
Verdict: I am a long-time Canon camera user, and have been pleased with all but one. On a recent trip to Germany, I lost our go-to camera. Luckily, there was a camera shop in the terminal. Not wanting to drop a lot, we picked up a Canon Ixus to get us through the trip. Not impressed!!

Verdict: Bought this camera for my dad, a retired pro. This Canon is packed with lots of nice features. It's compact and easy to carry and handle. Set up is a breeze and takes EXCELLENT pix. But the most amazing feature is the zooming power, 1200mm (35mm Equivalent)!!!

Хороший ФОТОаппарат с маленькой матрицей

 
5.0
Verdict: Пользуюсь фотоаппаратом неделю. Из плюсов можно отметить хороший оптический зум, беспроводная передача фотографий. Из минусов видео получается с матовым эффектом, даже с хорошим освещением. Матрица лучше бы имела 8-10 мегапикселей, но физический размер более 4х6 мм.

"Amazing zoom and features, and lightweight too, I love it!"

 
5.0
Pros: lightweight, powerful zoom, great pictures for landscapes as well as close-ups
Cons: doesnt have a regular viewfinder, only the LCD display
Verdict: I wanted a camera that I could use to take pictures of birds and other wildlife, but something that was easy to carry. And the Canon Powershot SX530 HS fit the bill perfectly! It has a powerful zoom, upto 50x in a single lens, and is less than 1 kg in weight (including the battery etc).

3.0
Verdict: This camera is amazing. The zoom is incredible. We have had telescopic pictures of the moon with the shadows and craters from Jamaica. We still brought our DSLR because it's our first trip with the PowerShot but we haven't even used it once.

Great point and shoot for Birdwatching!

 
5.0
Verdict: I wanted a good quality digital camera with zoom that I can use to ID birds from a distance at an affordable price. Canon Powershot SX530 meets the challenge with plenty to spare. I took a shot of an Osprey eating a fish on a tree at 75 yards.

great camera

 
5.0
Pros: -great HD recording, note it takes alot of space and 720 is a world away from 1080 -Great zoom on stuff like birds and aircraft -easy to use and get good photos without adjusting settings manually -easy to carry around -lots of settings like vivid colors, makes for those amazing photos you see of...
Cons: -still haven't figured out to take stills while recording, it simply stops the recording to take a still -battery charging takes a while and you can miss vacation photos while its charging -don't trust the battery reading, it can bounce around between 3 bars and dead battery
Verdict: would recommend it, just remember to charge the battery completely before going somewhere with it.

Verdict: While I've had it a short time and am in the learning phase, I am NOT used to cameras in general. However, I am able to start learning ow to use the 530 with little anxiety and some help from my camera literate husband. It is light, the functions are easy to find and I generally like it.
