Canon PowerShot SX500 IS 16MP 30X Zoom Digital Camera w/ Accessories
Best Camera Ever
Took this camera on our motorcycle vacation,luv it! Some pictures were taken from the bike, and turned out terrific.
im not sure why there are so many negative reviews but i really like this camera. I just point and take the picture...really simple. I have used it for the first time at my churchs vacation bible school and the pictures are great. Nice little camera.
I bought this camera because of QVCs great return policy. I needed a new camera and was interested in up sizing from the traditional point and shoot. I was wary about this one at first because of the negative reviews. All I can say, is buy this camera. We just returned from vacation and the camera was superb. From landscape to flowers, all of my Maui pictures are sharp, in focus, and beautiful. I just sent them for prints but from what I see they will come back perfect!!!
Excellent Camera Package
I am very pleased with this Canon PowerShot SX500 IS because it is much smaller than other cameras I have purchased with same features. Excellent camera package for the price because of all the accessories included in the total package for the price. I would recommend 5 stars for this product.
not high proformance
The night pictures not good and all pictures blurry ....I think I had a bad camera other reviews were good and I have 5 cameras and this one was bad......so I think something wrong with camera........I returned it within a week
Love It !!!!
Great camera, I am a glam-ma that love pictures an this is a great camera it is point an shot .right price as well
Not a bad little camera....Not bad at all!
So far I'm very satisfied. It's easy to use AND if you have any questions there's even a tutorial on YouTube to guide you through the paces of how to use the camera. I am using it for photographing my hand-made jewelry that I sell, so photos are extremely important to excel the interest in my product. I use a table top portable photo studio and I am happy with my results! In the future I may save for a higher quality camera but after going through 2 Kodak's with dissatisfaction....this one exceeds my expectations! It's lightweight, but that is deceiving as it has nothing to do with the quality of its performance. I bought a tripod as well and both arrived same day so that was pretty cool! No problems with tripod's performance either. The case that arrived with camera is perfect. I'm not sure why others mentioned problems, the camera fits perfectly fine in it and is a very nice quality item. I am a happy gal!
Small but powerful!
I bought this because it had the features I wanted and the price I wanted to pay (the Easy Pay helped). The camera is simple and easy to use. The only thing I have to get used to is trying to focus with the screen instead of a viewfinder.
It takes great quality pictures. I took it with me to an amusement park and was able to get shots of my family from the ground while they were three stories up. The video was also very clean and clear.
I don't regret this purchase at all! I'm glad I took a chance. I was surprised at how light and compact it was. Much better than a regular point and shoot, but not as complicated as a DSLR.
I have had this camera for about a week and have done three "test runs" with it. I read about half of the manual, am not a pro by any means, but figured out many things in a few minutes. I don't understand all the negative reviews, this is a quality camera that takes quality/clear images.
I have taken many pics using zoom and most came out excellent! You need to learn how to focus the camera before you shoot. My reasons for 4 stars instead of 5 are because the flash is "manual" lift, and there have been a few times when I could not get the camera to focus... it had depth of field and did not "know" what to focus on, but this was rare. I also have not tried "action" shots yet. This is the most powerful zoom I have ever had and look forward to using it at concerts.
I am very pleased with this camera. It has lots of different options but also has auto mode which is great. I have not had a lot of time to read the manual but I am learning new things about this camera with each use. Overall it takes great shots and has a powerful zoom. The only thing that I do not like is that the flash is manual. Great product and I would recommend! Also people that say they are getting blurry shots are not using the camera properly you have to let it focus.
Good for zoom shots. Too much camera noise for close shots. Returned it
Terrible camera! The worse one I have ever used! You can use disposable camera that perform better than this one. The auto focus drowns out your photos! Too much lighting! Of course you can tweak the settings, if you had time, but for a quick point and shoot camera, this is NOT the one. Also, many of my photos get out of focus. When the flash is not on, the pictures are distorted! When the flash is on, there usually is too much light cast on people's faces.
The default size of the pictures are set really small, which you might as well delete every photo you take. It is REALLY HARD to figure out how to change the default setting to a higher quality image. And even at that, the "higher quality" image is not really higher quality.
The battery is the worse battery life I have ever seen. I would rather use a 99 Cent Store battery than this one. Granted that you can recharge it, but when you are out taking pictures, the battery drains SUPER FAST. If you take video, you might get 10 minutes from it before the battery is depleted!
The only cool feature is the zoom lens, which can zoom pretty darn far, for the small size of this camera.
