Thumbs Up

The PowerShot SX530 has a 50x zoom ratio, responsive performance, framing assist, and integrated wifi in a fairly compact frame. 

Thumbs Down

On the downside, its focus lock is a bit slow, especially when using zoom.

The Bottom Line

It’s a decent point-and-shoot model, but if you’re willing to jump up a bit in price, you can get a much nicer model. That said, as a budget option, it’s a solid choice and is going for quite a steal on Amazon.

HelpMePickIt.com provides visitors with a service reviewing products and services completely free of charge. This is made possible by through affiliate programs, which earn us a fee when you complete a purchase after visiting from HelpMePickIt.com. For example, as an Amazon Associate, HelpMePickIt earns from qualifying purchases if you follow up and buy on our recommendations for products on Amazon.

As mentioned in our Review Methodology, we make an effort to stay unbiased and will rank products that earn us less higher, if we believe it is a better product. We believe there’s much more to gain in providing open and honest rankings.

While we make every effort to provide accurate and up-to-date information, reviews and rankings may not reflect the current state of products. We look through thousands of reviews and read hundreds of hours of research to construct our suggestions, so we cannot keep each updated at all times.

Review Methodology

Here at HelpMePickIt.com, our mission is to make your decisions easy. Often, there are countless reviews in countless places. Different prices for different features, fine print, and small details.
