The sx150is is a superior digital, point & shoot camera. Great color, zoom capability, 28mm extra wide angle.

By comparison to similar priced/featured Nikon, Panasonic and Olympus, the SX150 (14MP, 12-zoom) produces superior pictures. Specifically, the SX150 produces clearer, crisper, photos with more finite details in side-by-side comparisons. I took pictures of the same scene using my SX150 and the other cameras, then compared the photos using Photoshop. The SX150is won hands down.

For 5-years, I've own & still use the Canon SX110is (9MP, 10-zoom); the SX150 is a step up.

I purchased 4 of these cameras and kit for my yearbook class. My middle schoolers can use them easily and the cameras take great pictures. We especially needed something with a great zoom, something that worked well in low lighting, and something for action shots. The Canon Powershot SX150 IS fits the bill perfectly.

The batteries bundled with this camera lasted for perhaps 40 shots before I received the dreaded "Change the batteries" message. I removed the batteries, checked them with a battery meter and they still were "good" and powered a flashlight just fine. I replaced them with Coppertop batteries and these lasted for 10 shots before the camera quit. These batteries also were good and powered a flashlight. This camera has serious power issues. I am considering returning it. It was a gift and I am reluctant to do that, but if it is useless there is no point in keeping it.

For the average user the Canon PowerShot SX150 IS 14.1MP Digital Camera is a fantastic camera. It takes excellent photos using the automatic setting. No fuss, no worries whether the the lighting or focus is correct. If you need the flash it will tell you. You can get creative using the other settings and options available included with this camera.

I am really impressed with the quality of video it takes. It produces vivid color video, great audio and the optical image stabilizer works great. And I think the ease of use is second to none. The camera weight has a feel of substance and quality, though it might feel a little heavy to some.

I bought my camera and deluxe bundle from Beach Camera through Amazon and it included a small digital camera & gear carrying case, a Hi-Speed 4GB secure digital SD memory card and a 3pc. lens cleaning kit and was delivered in 4 days, with free shipping...all for $150.....wow!

I would recommend, as others have, to purchase rechargable batteries to use with the camera. I used 2 sets of standard non-rechargable AA batteries in the camera before the rechargable batteries and charger arrived. They didn't last very long at all. But, with the rechargable batteries I've taken about 100 photos and about 1 hour of video and they yet need to be recharged, well worth the initial expense which isn't that expensive anyway.

This camera lives up to the Canon reputation of quality and value.

This camera is fairly easy to use. A couple of things that we found difficult: (1) The Patriot SD card that was sent as a part of our purchased package kept reading as 'locked'...another SD card of a different brand seemed to solve the problem. (2) When the camera is focusing on a subject, the picture you see in the camera screen is blurry at times...but it seems to clear once it focuses. We have just begun to use the camera so this may get better with more usage.

I like the camera, bought it to take to South Africa, the only issue I have is that it uses a lot of juice, had to change the batteries every 50 pictures.
