6 Other reasons to consider the Canon PowerShot SX610 HS

Released Over Two Years Ago

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 3 inches, the PowerShot SX610 HS has a relatively average screen size compared to most of the other cameras of this age and spec.

The Canon PowerShot SX610 HS has a relatively typical optical zoom (18 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other cameras of a similar age and spec to the PowerShot SX610 HS.

If this compact camera camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Nikon Coolpix S7000[plb_2759382_price] (20x), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57[plb_2835365_price] (20x) which also has a higher rating.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 4x digital zoom digital cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon IXUS 170[plb_2701303_price] is also worth considering.

If this Canon camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might want to look at the Medion Life E44050[plb_3010757_price] (5x).
