All rights reserved.Having spent a little time with it, we're impressed with how much capability the engineers managed to pack into the Canon SX150, at such an affordable price. As you'd expect given the bargain-basement ~$179 street, it's not without its limitations, but considering what you get, it's pretty amazing: A capable, well-built 14-megapixel digital camera with an optically stabilized 12x zoom lens and a good assortment of features. We've seen it selling for as little as $149 here and there, which is a screaming bargain given its feature set. Its downsides are somewhat sluggish performance and a hefty appetite for batteries, but the low, low price forgives a lot. The fact that it offers full PASM exposure control could make it ideal for a youngster interested in really learning photography. Read our Canon SX150 IS review for all the details!
