One’s priorities change the older one gets, so they say. I find that with every growing year now (I am in my 30s), convenience is pretty high on the list of priorities. So I’d prefer my computers to be pre-built. I like to file my tax online rather than getting it wrong on paper. I want my purchases to come to me and not the other way around. I’m like that with cameras too. Gone are the days when I’d want my camera to come in pieces and requires a separate backpack to carry it all in. I want something discreet, a shooter that I can easily slip down a pocket just as easily as I can pick it up for those quick snaps.
Like the other camera manufacturers, Canon caters for a variety of tastes and budget. The ranges are incredulous – the PowerShot range alone has 149 digital cameras from five different series!
The PowerShot range is Canon’s answer to convenient photography with cameras that are more portable and fun, and emphasize the ease of use over their bulky and more expensive cousins in the EOS range. With its #CreateWithCanon campaign, Canon South Africa wants to encourage the use of its cameras in the urban creative and photography hobbyist markets. As a part of this campaign, I take a look at the PowerShot SX series (SX stands for “Super Zoom”, FYI), and in particular, the PowerShot SX600 HS.
