4.0 out of 5 stars Nice camera, easy functions, and very portable, December 1, 2012
This review is from: Canon PowerShot SX500 IS 16.0 MP Digital Camera (Black) + Replacement NB-6L Battery + 32GB Deluxe Accessory Kit (Electronics)
I bought this camera recently because I couldn't take my Canon T1i on a trip (too big). I used a friend's 20x optical zoom Canon Powershot and then looked for something comparable. The 30x optical zoom is impressive. The camera is light and fits in my purse. I was able to shoot from greater distances with very nice quality. The camera doesn't come with any detailed operational instructions and I haven't been able to make the sound playback through the camera on video recordings. Sound does play fine once transferred to my computer. There is a downloadable manual I have yet to find. Video quality was good even in low light. Being able to zoom during video recording is an added plus. The flash must be raised manually which is very different (and a bit inconvenient on auto mode) from previous DSLR or point and shoot cameras I've owned. The fish eye setting is a fun effect. Turning the dial to change settings allows for mode display on the screen. Very helpful. Mode settings are easy to access and manage. Manual settings can be altered easily so far (still figuring out some navigation). Easy to start recording video. NOTE: BATTERY DRAINS VERY FAST. Have a spare or two if you're shooting and don't have access or time to charge batteries. I have two and plan to buy a third even though it's an added expense. All in all, well worth the purchase so far.
