PROS

  • Camera has a wonderfully compact size that makes it a great travel companion
  • The megazoom 18x optical zoom provides impressive reach for such a small package.
  • A variety of creative shooting modes and Wi-Fi connectivity give this camera added flexibility.

CONS

  • Image quality suffers at ISO 800 and beyond, and even at normal light sensitivity, images are not quite as sharp as on the earlier version of this camera.
  • The aperture goes down to f/6.9 when the zoom lens is fully extended, which means the zoom is most useful in bright environments.
  • Lacks manual, aperture, and shutter priority modes.
The PowerShot SX610 HS is a compact digital camera with impressive connectivity for the social age. It has both Wi-Fi and NFC, for easing connections to smartphones and other devices. And it has an 18x optical zoom lens that provides a long, 450 mm reach in a pocket-sized capture tool.

The SX610 HS' picture quality isn't a huge improvement over the SX600's—20 Mpx image sensor notwithstanding—but it would still make a great travel companion. It's pocket-sized, straightforward and versatile and has a great design and handling, not to mention a handy 18x zoom.

The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS is an affordable compact camera with a long 18x zoom lens. It's loaded with features, including Wi-Fi and Canon's fun Creative Shot mode, but its 20-megapixel image sensor does more to detract from image quality than it does to add to it.

When viewed at large sizes, this camera's images look overprocessed even in good lighting conditions. In low light the SX610's images contain quite a bit of noise, especially if you're bumping the ISO setting to 800 or beyond.

The Canon Powershot SX610 HS is a digital camera to showcase miniaturization. It squeezes an impressive and highly versatile 18X wide-angle optical zoom in an ultra-compact body paired with a class-leading 20 megapixels CMOS sensor. This achievement though comes at the cost of light gather ability from the lens with its dim F/3.8-6.9 maximum aperture and from the 1/2.3" sensor with incredibly small pixels.
