Canon IXUS 132 vs Canon PowerShot SX150 IS
Top Nine Reasons for the
Canon IXUS 132
Compared to Canon PowerShot SX150 IS
Noticeably more megapixels (photo)
13.48% more megapixels (photo)
173 g lighter
Higher pixel density
11.30% higher pixel density
Significantly less body volume
3.61x less body volume
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
20.80 mm narrower
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
20.40 mm shorter
24.20 mm thinner

Top Eleven Reasons for the
Canon PowerShot SX150 IS
Compared to Canon IXUS 132
Marginally larger sensor
4.62 x 6.17 mm
4.55 x 6.17 mm
1.37% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
Notably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
12.50% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Better video recording quality
720 x 30 fps
720 x 25 fps
20% better video recording quality
Vastly faster maximum shutter speed
25% faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
Has a stereo microphone
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
A shade bigger screen size
11.11% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Vastly greater zoom range
4 x greater zoom range. The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
Can be charged via standard USB cable
It can be charged and operated with a standard USB cable connected to your computer, or with a USB power supply.
Distinctly longer maximum focal length
112 mm longer maximum focal length. A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
Has manual exposure
This allows to manually set the exposure.
Has an accelerometer
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes from a vertical to a horizontal position.
