Product Reviews
Canon PowerShot SX540 HS - digital camera is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS CAMERA! I have the 35x optical zoom version of this camera that I bought several years ago. I absolutely love it! I get great shots, the optics are very high quality, and there are so many features that I haven't gotten around to using them all yet. It's easy to use, and it's my go-to camera for every occasion - from vacations, to pics of the grandkids. I used a Canon film camera for many years, and when I decided I wanted a digital camera, the SX540 suited my needs the best. When/if I decide a new camera is in order, I will definitely buy the new model of this one. You can't beat the quality or the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Camera for the Price I have had this camera for almost two years and I am still learning how to use all of which it is capable. It does require a steady stand for full 50x pictures, but this is to be expected. The Image Stabilization makes most shots very clear. The photos from this camera are of very high quality. To the people who say they can not see the pictures on the screen in the daylight, it is a simple press of a button to change to the viewfinder. There is a little difference between what you see in the viewfinder and the screen, but it still takes a great picture.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good outside I purchased this camera to photograph nature, but unless you are inside or in the shade, you can't see through the screen. Very dissatisfied...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This camera is Great! Let me start by saying that this is my first digital camera purchase. I did a lot of research and I was between this camera and the Nikon equivalent and I decided to go with the Canon based on the mostly great reviews. I've been taking pictures on my iPhone since my daughter was born, I really wish we had bought this camera sooner! The picture quality is amazing. I was really impressed by the quality of the zoom, which takes some time to perfect but surely won't disappoint! I took a picture of the restaurant at the end of the Pier from the beach (which is almost 700 yards away) and the quality of the picture I got was amazing! I love the wifi feature on the camera and how easy it is to connect to the Canon app on my iPhone. I rarely even take pictures on my iPhone anymore because I want to take this camera with me everywhere! Plus, the size and weight allows me to do so. I am so happy with this purchase, I can see it providing my family and myself with a lot of great quality photos for many years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera! I think this camera is great so far. The lens goes from very wide to very long!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No View Finder You don't normally use a 50x zoom indoors and the screens just don't work outdoors in the sunshine, so I can't use this camera. I will send it back because there is no view finder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Really is a Good Camera!!!! i am a novice when it comes to cameras. I don't know anything about settings. The good news is that this camera does all the work for me. i get really good quality pictures that i use on my website. It's affordable and i definitely recommend it . . . especially if you are inexperienced like me.
