                  The analysis of all aggregated expert reviews shows that the reviewers are positive about shutter, viewfinder, stabilizer and flash. Editors are less positive about low-light and reliability.

                    Canon SX420 IS Review
                    Canon has announced the PowerShot SX420 IS, a budget-friendly long-zoom digital camera. While using a similar design to the SX410 IS that precedes it, the SX420 brings a number of improvements and features to this super-zoom compact line.Full Review
