Canon PowerShot SX170 IS Point & Shoot Digital Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Canon PowerShot SX170 IS has surfaced as the entry-level digital camera up to PowerShot SX series. The camera is a revision of SX160 and somehow looks lot similar to it. It is 0.12 inches narrower, 0.06 inches shorter and 0.01 inches thinner than its predecessor. Few lines and styling patterns have been redefined, the hand grip has been revised so as to achieve better grip. For battery purposes, the camera now uses Li-Ion rechargeable battery over replaceable AA batteries. Lithium batteries also account for more shots per single charge. The shutter button, mode dial, six physical controls, zoom ring at the top and four way d-pad at the rear have come nearly as a set incorporated from SX160. Again there is this same 3 inches wide TFT LCD with resolution 230k dot. There is no button for pop-up flash.

The camera's image sensor is 1/2.3-inch CCD type and processing engine behind is DIGIC 4. The lens at work provides zoom up to 16x covering a 35mm equivalent focal length of 28-448mm and aperture range of f/3.5-5.9. Both the ranges start at wide-angle end move to telephoto end. The video recording is done at 720p HD with aspect pixels 1280 x 720 and the frame rate is 25fps. The intelligent IS and high-speed AF are features SX170 promises. Both technologies work in sync to provide sharp videos and stills. The Smart Auto technology, having an understanding of 32 pre-defined shoot situations, makes best of a scene when turned on. What some might not expect from a camera within this price range is that the camera offers PASM exposure controls as well as creative filters. The camera ships this September in body paints; Black and Red.

Design and Build Quality

Canon PowerShot SX170 IS doesn't pose the same way as does other digicams within the PowerShot ambit. But the grip and hold at the camera present a tactile character of it. The grip at the right side offers a firm hold. At the top of the camera is a big mode dial that lets you access Auto modes, semi-auto modes (Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority), digital filters, scene modes, video recording and other features. You cannot obviously place the camera inside your jeans' pocket, the look itself validates that but it will slide in to your jacket pocket easily. You operate zoom via a switch around the shutter button, the zoom experience is amazing. There is flash unit at the roof of the camera, you can work on it manually, via a dedicated button you can access different function for flash.

Focus and Face Detection

The Autofocus of Canon PowerShot SX170 IS includes Tracking, Contrast Detect (sensor), Multi-area, Center, Single, Face Detection and Live View.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Canon PowerShot SX170 IS comes with zoom lens with optical zoom up to 16x. You can control the zoom manually. The focal length so covered is 28mm (at wide-angle end) to 448mm (at telephoto end). For your macro shots, the minimum distance is 1cm. The aperture range is f/3.5-5.9. Image stabilization offered is of optical type.

Screen and Menus

In Canon PowerShot SX170 IS, screen is the only viewfinder for framing your shots. The screen is articulated, fixed and TFT type. It's size is 3 inches and resolution is 230k dot. The only good part is you can have Live View before shoot. Those who have been using Canon's digicams would be quite familiar to the menu system at work. It is simple and sober. There is a function button at the back of the camera that lets you access quick menu for settings used generally in the camera. At the juncture you can alter settings like white balance and sensitivity, if your shooting mode is either semi-automatic or fully manual. Weight including batteries is 251 grams and dimensions are 108 x 71 x 44mm (WxHxD).


Canon PowerShot SX170 IS derives life from a rechargeable Li-Ion NB-6LH battery. The ECO mode on the camera, as Canon states, when turned on adds up to 46% more on battery life. The camera would prove a boon for traveling and holidaying photographers. Under CIPA ratings you can get 300 shots on single full charge.

Video Mode

Canon PowerShot SX170 IS orders 6 stabilization modes, high-speed AF and intelligent Image-stabilization for both videos and images. You can shoot videos at HD 1280x720 aspect pixels at frame rate 30/25 fps or at 640x480 at 30fps. You can also shoot stills while recording. The HDMI connector lets you view what you have worked up on, on your HDTV. The video gets encoded in MP4 H.264. The audio comes in stereo format. 


Sensor for Canon PowerShot SX170 IS is a CCD type with intelligent image-stabilization and 16 megapixels. Size for the sensor is 1/2.3 inches. The DIGIC 4 processor though helps to attain sharp and quality images.


- Canon PowerShot SX170 IS is reasonably priced.

Full manual control is available.

Li-Ion rechargeable battery for the first time in this range.

Fluid zooming.

Easy system.

Eco-mode improves battery life by 46 percent.


Canon PowerShot SX170 IS is available in only Black and Red.

When the zoom of the camera is fully expanded it may not feel compact to many.
