Canon PowerShot SX420 IS Reviews

Pluses: Great camera for home use! Canon PowerShot SX420 IS, a couple thousand difference, but shooting quality is much better, focuses quickly, pictures are clear, natural, not blurry even in motion, the camera is light, relatively compact, fits easily into a bag or pocket, there is WIFI connected the camera to the phone in 2 minutes, a convenient thing, especially for quick transfer of pictures between devices, and for home collective shooting, you can control the camera from a smartphone. All in all, I found a great replacement for the SLR camera.
Disadvantages: There is no cord for connecting to a PC, not in a belt kit for wearing a photo card on the neck, manually necessary to get a flash, but in general all this is trifles, the main picture it turns out good.
Minuses: I advise. I asked for a new camera as a gift, I didn’t want a simple “soap box”, so I studied it before buying Canon PowerShot SX420 IS owner reviews. Good quality promises Photos fully justified. It’s especially nice that the quality is not decreases with a significant approximation. Many interesting effects, but most of them are difficult to put into practice. When, for example, can the color replacement function come in handy? how as usual, there were some shortcomings, mostly minor ones. The main thing, I can complain about – the battery runs out quickly, constantly I have to put the camera on charge. At dusk it is unrealistic focuses for a long time! It freaks out. The rest of me is everything satisfied, I do not regret the choice. The video is also good quality, not ashamed to show friends.

Sotnichenko Vitaliy

Pluses: Pretty small, wifi, zoom.
Disadvantages: Weak battery, does not charge on usb cable. Add comment after a month of use. Video shoots disgusting! The colors are not natural, a lot of white.
Minuses: It was possible to cram more than any shooting modes and more powerful battery.

Togan Vitaliy

Pluses: Megazum, low price, battery included, simple menu, compactness, good image quality with good lighting.
Minuses: No plug for charging the battery without removing, no connector for downloading photos via usb, low shooting speed, no neck strap.
Minuses: Very pleased with the acquisition, image quality and zoom pleasing. Of all the minuses, only slow shooting can be distinguished. I don’t understand the meaning of burst shooting if the frame is recorded a second or even longer. There is no connector for charging the battery without removing it – I would not say that this is a significant minus, there are a lot of cameras on ordinary batteries and nothing people live, take pictures and do not cry. But it’s good that in general there’s immediately a battery in the kit rumored to be enough for 180-200 shots. Charging included too goes, I plan to buy a second battery and beauty. Friends have the DSLR is heavy and they almost stopped using it. And such baby like this fotik can be dragged all day long.

Vedernikova Tatyana

Pluses: Wonderful camera for the money. I am fond of photography for a long time, and decided to purchase this model instead of Nikon. Great zoom for shooting without loss quality. In the dark, also removes no less worthy. TO stabilization is also not to complain, copes. By the way to the moon really really take them off and craters will be visible in the photo. I definitely recommend it and I do not regret it a bit.
