The SX170 IS is almost identical to its predecessor, the SX160 IS. Basically, Canon changed the power from AA-size batteries to a rechargeable lithium-ion pack and, in turn, changed the body a bit. Otherwise, they're the same cameras.

The SX170 is one of the few inexpensive point-and-shoots with semimanual and manual shooting modes along with a full assortment of auto options.

The other noticeable difference from the SX160, is that Canon dropped that model's Mini-HDMI port for the SX170.
