Maybe OK for small screen images on Facebook, but not much else. Canon PowerShot SX150 IS Lens Quality The Canon PowerShot SX150 IS features a 12x zoom lens, equivalent to a 28-336mm zoom on a 35mm camera. The top deck consists of a manual pop-up flash (arguably more convenient than an auto-pop-up design). To the right of the flash are the mode dial, shutter button/zoom and a good-sized power on/off button.

Nearby is a compartment for USB and A/V out. Nobody can argue that the sub $200 point and shoot digital cameras are being hammered by smartphones. Fine for small screen images on Facebook or wallet-sized prints, but not much else.
There’s no button to pop it open, you just stick a fingernail right below the Canon logo and lift it up. You can save your edits as a new image file to preserve your original image. Canon added some silver accents on the front (surrounding the lens and the front grip) as well as the shutter and power buttons. Very nice. I typically like the images captured by Canon cameras. In the past year I’ve handled everything from the 10MP A800 to the 18MP EOS T3i and many models in between.
