Canon PowerShot SX170 IS 16.0 MP Digital Camera with 16x Optical Zoom and 720p HD Video (Black) by Canon

Zoom in on images you’re not likely to capture with a smartphone. The 16x Optical Zoom on the PowerShot SX170 IS camera gets you up close to kids and wildlife, down on the field and up on the stage, while Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer keeps images steady and clear. The 28mm Wide-Angle lens captures everything from large family shots to breathtaking landscapes. With the 16.0 Megapixel sensor, you can crop and enlarge all you want, and the DIGIC 4 Image Processor ensures fast, precise performance. Relive fun times in smooth, detailed 720p HD video. Or simply point and shoot for excellent stills quality in all kinds of situations: Smart AUTO senses the conditions and chooses optimized camera settings for 32 pre-defined scenes. High Speed AF captures quick action shots, and Intelligent IS counteracts camera shake for virtually blur-free shooting. Easily see what you’re shooting and show off what you’ve captured on the big, clear 3.0-inch LCD screen. Powered by a slim, new rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the PowerShot SX170 IS sports an even smaller, more ergonomic design that makes this the perfect camera to have at the ready all day long.

    Hey just a point of view, you come across like a used car salesman.
    Seriously are you trying to review the product or sell it to me? If your
    selling the product then you need to work on your pitch. If however your
    trying to review the camera, don’t tell me where to buy it before you even
    start talking about it, and show us some pictures you took with the thing
    rather than just reading off the Canon talking points from the side of the
    box while stock images cycle.
