|Canon Powershot SX530 HS Camera|
Canon has already launched their next budget Bridge camera. Now their main bridge camera line and these budget bridge cameras are getting very close when it comes to features. Just take a look at this new Canon Powershot SX530 HS Camera. It's an 50x Optical zoom camera!
Predecessor of Canon SX60 which is Canon SX50 also has a 50x optical zoom but the difference is SX530 has only a DIGIC 4 image processor which is an old one. SX60 has DIGIC 6 one and SX50 has a DIGIC 5. I guess only reason why they added this old processor is to keep it's specs lower from their front line camera Canon SX60. Why would anyone pay $450+ when you can all for cheaper ?
Since it's smaller size I think it might work as great ladies camera. I have heard so many companies from ladies Canon Bridge cameras are way too heavy which is kind of true. So this one is smaller and lighter but packs a really good punch.
It has some unbelievably great features,
- 50x Optical zoom (24-1200mm).
- 16.0 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor.
- Built-in Wi-Fi.
- 1080p Full HD video with a dedicated movie button.
- Large 3.0-inch LCD with a screen.
Canon SX530 has features from SX50 and also most of new features from SX60. So this one not a just a normal digital camera. I think photo quality will be better than it's older version SX520. But I couldn't find anything about it's CMOS sensor apart from it uses an old DIGIC 4 image processor. HD video probably the same.
I wonder how much this camera will cost. You can buy Canon Powershot SX520 for less than $200 from Amazon these days but I think this one will be lot more expensive. You can buy a Canon Powershot SX50 for around $350 so if this goes over $300 mark buyers will need to think again. But it won't be really hard to many since this one might be become more popular among females than men. Those who spend hours on social media sites everyday would go for this one because it has Wi-Fi. Those who want better photo quality will take the Canon SX50.
If this one become popular I think Canon SX50 will have its price more decreased. I think it would be a great for those who want a good camera to learn photography and have fun rather than share everything on Facebook. Not everyone crazy about Social Media.
18/02/2015 - You can pre-order it from Amazon but price is $429.00. I think it's too much. Since I'm not so big on all these new features like Wi-Fi Would take SX50 or add few more bucks and buy the new Canon SX60. If I'm tight on budget then I would go for SX520 which is only around $200.
