Review: Canon PowerShot SX520 HS

Review: Canon PowerShot SX520 HS

The first review for the new Canon PowerShot SX520 HS has been posted on Photographyblog.com. I’m actually a big fan of this series of Canon superzooms. They’re light weight, easy to use and have pretty good image quality. I usually recommend these to the casual, yet eager photographer.

From PhotographyBlog
“Cramming a big 42x optical zoom into a compact body with a small-ish sensor is never going to make for the best of bedfellows if the ultimate in image quality is your aim, but we’d argue the 16 megapixel Canon PowerShot SX520 HS is more about convenience, flexibility and value for money – each of which it largely delivers on.”

The New Canon PowerShot SX60 HS

Two images of the upcoming Canon PowerShot SX60 have leaked. The camera will only have 65x zoom, not the 100x we’ve seen in patents. I hope that’s enough reach for a small camera.
