My Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 Digital Camera Review
The Design and Feel
The design of Canon PowerShot ELPH has followed the traditional Canon Elph series, The 0.8 x 3.4 x 2.1 inches of dmensions seems compact enough, But the weight is about 5.8 ounces is a little heavy, You can find the two skins on the optional page, Black and white, Choose which you like best. The problem is Canon put the view image button near to the power button, It would make the wrong click
The 3.2 inch lcd screen is sharp with the resolution of 460k dots, Although it is lower than 921k dot of other screen, But the price is lower too.
Do you like the Performance?
I like the photo quality from the 10.1 MP CMOS sensor which has a good performance on noise reduction, You can find even with ISO 800, It has no noise on the photos, Besides, The low light performance is very well which is with in our expectation.
If you like video recording with compact camera, I think the 1080p video feature in this camera would meet any demands of you for the video shooting.
The weakness of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 is also very disgusting, I really don’t like the battery life of this camera, It is too short, What’s more, Don’t use wi-fi in it, It would take a lot of your battery power, So please take care of the using time, and don’t forget to carry the spare batteries and ac adapter when you are traveling.
Verdict and Price
“The ELPH 530 HS earns a decent overall score on the merits of its image quality, but we can’t recommend it. There are plenty of cameras for the same money with longer zooms, better image quality, and smarter interfaces. If you’re sold on this camera for some reason, save $70 and buy the WiFi-free ELPH 520 HS instead. Better yet, buy a completely different camera.” – digitalcamerainfo
From all above, Although, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 has a good performance on image shooting, But the battery is always a big problem in it, So we are not recommending to order this camera.
