2.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, but takes poor pictures 3 April 2014
By Antman
I bought this camera as I had a trusty old PowerShot SX110 IS which was getting a bit old. I was really glad that a new version was out which, hopefully, did everything the old one did, but better.

In fact, mostly it does things a bit worse.

The Good Points
-the camera is small enough to fit in a (large) pocket), but nonetheless has an impressive...
-16X optical zoom
-the zoom toggle is intuitive and easy to use.
-The camera sits well in your hand.
-the battery lasts a good, long time
-the video comes out quite sharp and crisp.
-there are quite a few silly but fun photo effects
-you can mess about with the shutter speed, F-stop, etc. The wheel selection is a good system for that.
-it can snap pretty quickly if you don't use flash
-the macro can get pretty darn close to stuff (but you'll need good light, as the camera nose hides the flash)

ok, now:

The Bad Bits
-my main criticism is simple: the camera takes poor pictures. When zoomed in to the true image size (1 pixel per pixel) the image is very pixalated and blurred. I suspect that the lens is not good enough to fully utilise the megapixels of the chip.
-the auto white balance is quite poor. Things come out grayish and flat. You can set the white balance by hand, but not in auto mode
-you get some odd chromatic aberrations around the edges of objects
-the focus detection isn't great - often it focusses on the background when you want the foreground in focus
-the flash takes quite a while to charge between shots
-the selector wheel functions also as several buttons - good in the last version, but in this one the buttons are too easy to press, so end up getting pressed accidentally while trying to rotate the selector wheel.
