Updating the canon powershot sx110
And lastly, the 10X zoom doesn't work when you're shooting video, which is kind of a drag.
So despite the camera's best in class photo quality, it's spotty performance and other flaws keep it from getting a full recommendation from us.
I'm Josh Goldman, and that's the Canon Power Shot SX110IS.
The proof is in the pictures, so let your own eyes decide which you like best! We're combining some of the elements from previous shots (Dave Box and Res Chart) into this and the "Multi Target" shot below, plus added a number of elements that are very revealing of various camera characteristics and foibles.
We include this for reference because it's used by other reviewers out there, but caution our readers that it really isn't well-suited for use as an absolute color standard.
(We'll continue shooting the full res chart in SLR reviews for the sake of interested readers, but all lesser cameras will now show just the Multi-Target instead.) The added elements largely mirror ones that were present in our "Dave Box" test target, which we've now semi-retired.
For one, since it only uses two double "A" batteries, it goes through batteries pretty quickly, so you want to get some rechargeables.
Second, the body is very slippery, especially right in the grip area.
The "SX" stands for "Super Zoom." All S and SX models feature image stabilization, and most have full manual controls.
