By Posted 2 Dec 2013, 10:47

Looking for a camera to buy as the perfect gift, then why not consider the Canon PowerShot SX160? The reason why we suggest this camera is thanks to its impressive reviews and a new price, which to us seems like perfect timing.

Before we have a look at the two review videos, it’s best to reacquaint ourselves with the Canon PowerShot SX160 specs. Firstly, there is a 16-megapixel sensor and a 16x optical zoom, which allows you to zoom in much closer to the subject while standing at a greater distance.

Like all cameras with a decent zoom range they can often suffer from camera shake, and so the SX160 comes with a feature called Optical Image Stabilizer, allowing you to take images from a distance with peace of mind knowing they will come out perfectly clear.

To make certain that you can take images in an instant is the Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor. There is a downside to this camera though, as it only supports 720p, although it’s still good enough for most of you.

The Canon PowerShot SX160 has 32 preset modes, which takes all the guesswork out of taking photos in various conditions. There is far more to this camera than meets the eye, and so we invite you to look at the two Canon PowerShot SX160 video reviews below.

In the first Canon PowerShot SX160 IS review that has a running time of just over 14 minutes, looks at how the person has got on with the camera since buying it. He discusses his overall impressions, as well as pros and cons.

Even though the Canon PowerShot SX160 is about a year old now, it was great value back in 2012, which is explained in the second video. However, seeing as though it’s now a little more than a year old, Walmart is currently offering the Canon PowerShot SX160 for the amazing price of $79.99.
