Canon Powershot SX520 HS Camera is a budget bridge camera which you can buy for lot cheaper than regular Canon Bridge camera models like Canon SX60 or Canon SX50. These cameras are high-end point and shoots camera which cost you $300+ to buy one whatever the brand you try. So Canon has started this budget camera line for those who want one for cheaper. The first one was Canon SX 500 and the second one was Canon SX510.
Canon SX520 is the third camera and also one with lot more features and also cheaper than both older models for some reason. You can get this model for just around $199 from Amazon with free shipping. I don't this there are any other good superzoom camera you can buy for this price.
SX 520 has has 42x Optical zoom which is equal to 1008mm and also 24mm wide angle lens. Even Canon SX30 has just 30x optical zoom. You can take images far away from this camera and you won't find better zoom for this price in market yet.
Next best thing about this camera is it's High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor which gives you 16 mega pixel resolution. Image processor is DIGIC 4 but it's more than enough for camera in this price rage and images are so impressive.
That's not all. It has do 1080p Full HD videos too. For a price like $200 you won't able to find better camera in market these days. It's a light weight can carry in your hang bag or purse. But might not fit into your pocket though.
