Background and Information

The PowerShot SX150 IS is part of the Canon PowerShot SX series, released in August of 2011. It can be identified by the name PowerShot SX150 IS printed vertically on the left hand side of the front of the camera. The IS in the name is colored red. The camera comes in black or red.

While this is a high zoom camera, it is designed to be more compact then the typical high zoom camera. Another feature of this camera that makes it unique is the optics are better then a lot of point and shoot cameras. Like many cameras that do not use a proprietary Lithium battery that can be recharged, the battery life is terrible with Alkaline batteries. This camera should only be used with Primary Lithium batteries or high capacity NiMh cells to avoid frequent battery changes.

This camera offers 12x optical zoom and also offers digital zoom and a built-in flash. This camera also has some built-in filters (fish-eye, color accents, monochrome and more). It also features basic editing tools (i-Contrast, Red eye correction, Trim, Resize) that do not require a PC to use.
