I am a novice when it comes to cameras, so I was pleased when I studied the Canon sx530. So far, it has been a joy to use. I find the camera to be a good fit for novices, and it takes wonderful photos. If you are looking for a good, entry camera, I would highly recommend the sx530,
My wonderful husband has been trying all day to connect the camera to the Canon Connect app. He is knowledgeable about this stuff so if he can't do it, I have no hope. I bought this because I wanted a light camera with zoom lens, wifi and ability to connect to GPS to tag my photos. Without the wifi it does not do what I need. Why is this stuff so hard for camera makers? I have another expensive SLR with a GPS attachment that doesn't work either. I am sending this back. I think it would like it, but it misses the mark with a wifi app that is worthless. This just can't be that hard to do.
Bought this as a new investment, we have a toddler and wanted a better camera then just using our cell phones!!
i should have stuck with an slr,the photos on this point and shoot lack clarity.
I bought this camera over a year ago, I am very satisfied with the camera and its performance. I own about three SLR Canon cameras and various lenses which I have not used since my first Canon digital camera. This camera with its lens is as good as one of my old SLR, and I don't have to be carrying lenses and switching lenses to take the photos I want. I highly recommend this camera to anyone that is looking for more than just a "point and shoot" and does not want to spend the money that the new digital SLR cost
I bought this camera a month ago and am so happy that I did. It takes great pictures. They are clear, sharp, and focused. My photos are all that I would have wanted them to be and more! I can zoom a long way and get great shots! I love this camera!
My powershot is so easy to use and takes great pictures. A perfect camera for the beginner like me. I love the telephoto lens. I was able to read the name of a cruise ship from a few miles away while we were in Aruba.
