4 out of 5 stars   Good price, good camera
By Moom (Charlotte NC) September 02, 2013
Review submitted for Canon Powershot SX160 IS 16MP 16x Zoom Red Digital Camera w/ 720p HD Video (CNPSSX160ISR)
Pros: Price Camera Features
Cons: none
Other Comments: Obviously, this is not a state-of-the-art camera, but given the price, it has been more than capable for our needs. It's been fun to use and produces high quality photos. There usually seems to be discussion about battery problems. We have not even tried using alkaline batteries, and don't anticipate using them. I can't really give a count as to how many photos we've gotten from our rechargeable batteries, but we've done several days of getting a feel for the camera with a single set of NiMH batteries. I think with a few sets of good quality NiMH batteries you will get optimum use from this camera. While the bonus bag that came was the camera was far too large to use with this small camera, I was pleasantly surprised that the free memory was a quality card from Samsung. I had anticipated the free card would be from some no-name company, so that was a pleasant surprised.
