The PowerShot SX160 IS is equipped with Canon's latest advancements in Autofocus (AF) technology. Working on multiple fronts, Canon has developed AF that is significantly faster than on previous models, for a shooting experience that's spontaneous and natural. The extremely responsive High Speed AF lets you capture great shots as they happen, with reduced lag time.
Several engineering breakthroughs contributed to this major enhancement to speed. In addition to improved AF algorithms, the camera can process multiple sequences simultaneously, and takes advantage of reworked controls between AF and the start of shooting.
Good for the price
Good quality for the price but not perfect. Poor low light performance for videos (good for photos) and battery eater.

The compact package makes it easy to handle anywhere. The zoom gets in nice and close to get the details. The HD video adds versatility and eliminates the need to carry two cameras. The pixel quality is at the top. Unfortunately, the battery life only gets you around 20 pictures, and you need to have spare sets on hand. The software is a little difficult to navigate and save pictures to disc.

Worst Canon Product purchased
Purchased this camera 10/2012. For 2 months, it worked fine. Now, every time I turn it on, I have to reset the date as it goes back to 00/00/2012, time is 00:00 and zone does not show . I have missed many photo opportunities because of this. All of my photos are kept in date folders and it is important for the date I set to hold. This is my 5th Canon camera and very disappointed with this one.

incompatible with windows 7
Are you serious? No patch available for Windows seven compatibility? So my images are non transferable. Great...I may as well throw it away.
