Canon PowerShot SX160 IS

The SX500 IS is a new addition to Canon's PowerShot lineup featuring a 30x f3.4-5.8 24-720mm lens, a fixed 3-inch 460K-dot resolution, a 16-megapixel CCD sensor, and an older Digic 4 image processor.

Canon used a 3-inch 460K-dot-resolution LCD, but it's fixed, unlike the vari-angle one on the SX40 HS. And if you like having a viewfinder, forget about this model.

The SX160 IS is the update to the SX150 IS, Canon's 14-megapixel 12x compact megazoom that runs on AA batteries. The new version gets a resolution bump to 16 megapixels and a 16x f3.5-5.9 28-448mm lens.

Aside from the AA batteries and the zoom lens, the SX160 IS has shutter speed- and aperture-priority shooting modes as well as full manual controls -- rare features for this class of camera.
