    Awesome!

    • good zoom
    • connection with smartphone by wifi
    • above 20 megapixels, super sharp image!
    • no folding screen
    • battery does not last long
    • image can sometimes be unexpectedly grainy (even if there is light) when filming

    I've had this product for about two weeks now and it's a hit! I mainly use it at night for stargazing. I was able to take so many beautiful pictures of the moon and such. In my experience, this camera can also replace a cheap telescope.

    • the many possibilities
    • zoom function
    • no external connection

    a pity that there is no external connection, if you make frequent use of the zoom and use a tripod, you cannot use an external shutter release, this causes regular movement when printing. Furthermore, there are many possibilities that require some study because they are often hidden via via, so the subject of the photographer has already disappeared, but you can always use the automatic.

    • Ease of use
    • nice design
    • No

    Beautiful device for this price, and very easy to use.
    No bells & whistles that you will never use anyway.
    Aim and click!

    A good all-round camera.
    • good grip
    • Very good image stabilization
    • battery life
    • strong zoom
    • responds quickly
    • cost of original accessories
    • marks on buttons fade quickly
    • on/off button a little more difficult to reach

    The camera was bought to accompany us on our trip to Canada and it did its job with flying colors.
    It feels very solid, reacts quickly and takes beautiful pictures.
    Even though I don't really have a steady hand, the image stabilization manages to take good pictures even when zooming in far.
    Thanks to the easy grip, it is also easy to hold by people with larger hands, although the on/off button is sometimes difficult to reach if it has to go quickly.

    The only real downside is that the markings on the push buttons have completely disappeared after about 3 months, so you have to know the functions of these buttons by heart.

    The high price of accessories such as a converter ring for filters or extra batteries is typical Canon

    A fine camera with a great zoom.
    • Super far zoom!
    • Light device
    • No peephole, only screen.

    I think it's a great camera to work with. It's useful for beginners because a lot of it is automatic. It's handy that you don't need separate lenses.
    The downside so far (I haven't had it that long) is that you don't have a peephole and in sunny weather you don't see it as well on the screen.

    A top camera for a novice photographer
    • sharp photos
    • Easy to use
    • Good value for money
    • Wi-Fi option
    • You don't get a cable included to put the photos on the computer

    I definitely recommend the Canon Powershot SX540 HS. For a novice photographer (which I also fall under) it is a nice device. The quality of the photos is good, even when you have used the optical zoom. The device is easy to use. I could think of one drawback, and that is that you don't get a cable included to transfer the photos to the computer. Fortunately, the WiFi function is also very easy and you can put the photos on your phone and post them directly on social media from there.

    poor vision
    • super zoom
    • bad LCD screen

    It is a pity that there is little to see on the LCD screen in sunny weather, then it is guessing what you are photographing

    Nice camera for a good price
    • Handy size
    • Works easily with an app on your phone
    • Beautiful pictures

    I had been looking for a camera to take with me to work (stewardess) for a long time. This camera is compact and works on WiFi. The camera automatically searches for the right setting and takes sharp photos. Handy app for your phone and the photos will be on your mobile within seconds! Highly recommended!
