Canon PowerShot SX240 HS Point & Shoot Digital Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Powerful 20x, 25-500mm optical zoom lens with a built-in 4-stop image stabilizer and Intelligent IS technology, 12.1 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, 3 inch LCD screen with 460k-dot resolution, DIGIC 5 image processing engine, face ID recognition, full 1080p HD Movie Mode with stereo sound and an HDMI output, and a Smart Auto mode with Scene Detection Technology and an Easy mode for beginners- all the ingredients for a blockbuster compact digicam are found in the latest canon release- the Canon PowerShot SX240. It weighs 224gms and measures 106.3mm x 61.0mm x 32.7mm and is available in black, silver and pink. The camera however lacks a GPS function as opposed to many of its counterparts. 


Design and Build Quality

The canon PowerShot SX240 HS comes with a sturdy layout being made of a mix of plastic and metal to withstand the rugged usage.Being light weighted and measuring 106.3mm x 61.0mm x 32.7mm, it fits in the pocket making it easily portable. Given the marvellous 20x built-in zoom power, with lens does extending 2-inches from the body when using the maximum 500mm equivalent telephoto setting, accounts for the bulky nature but its worth compromising. Having the equivalent of a 25-500mm zoom lens in such a tiny body is sure cherry on the cake. However, the  maximum apertures at either end of the range are pretty slow (f/3.5 and f/6.8 respectively. Adding to the camera’s stability is a new handgrip on the front and the effective image stabilisation system which automatically prevents blur. The front of the camera also sports a self timer/AF assist lamp positioned to the top left of the lens. The zoom can be very well adjusted by a rocker switch on the top of the camera alongside which we can see the on off button, and stereo and microphone holes. The shooting mode wheel is on the top right of the back plate with 12 optionsincluding an easy mode for beginners..


Focus and Face Detection

The canon PowerShot SX240 HS ha an Autofocus with different modes-  Continuous, Servo AF (follows Servo AE) and Manual focus. The AF Frame supports Face AiAF, Tracking AF and center. Evaluative, Center-weighted average, Spot metering systems are also found in this new canon release. Exposure compensation is +/-2 stops in 1/3-stop increments. The camera has an ISO sensitivity upto 3200. The Aperture has a f number of /3.5 - f/8.0 (W), f/6.8 - f/8.0 (T) giving images close to real and helping capturing memories just like they are! Auto, on, slow synchro, off are some of the modes the Flash can be adjusted to according to the light demand. The camera automatically selects the optimum settings for all situations and subjects to help you take priceless picture-perfect memories. Face ID recognition helps you to capture familiar faces in a crowd of upto 12 people easily.


Lens and Image Stabilization

An approx. 12.1 million pixels is what the camera Canon PowerShot SX240 HS has to offer. Having a lens with focal length of 4.5 (W) - 90.0 (T)mm, (35mm film equivalent: 25 (W) - 500 (T)mm) and Zoom magnification of 20x gives you picture clarity like never before.

Best travel zoom under 15k
by Anuj Khurana on 2014-04-05

No other compact camera with 20x zoom can be as good as this for this price.

Bad at battery backup but carrying a spare battery solves the problem.
