Comparing Canon PowerShot SX150 IS vs Canon IXUS 132

1. Canon PowerShot SX150 IS

11 Reasons why Canon PowerShot SX150 IS is better

Comparing Canon PowerShot SX150 IS vs Canon IXUS 132

1.Notably larger sensor
6.17 x 4.62mmvs 6.17 x 4.55mm (Canon IXUS 132)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.Noticeably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
0.9fpsvs 0.8fps (Canon IXUS 132)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
3.Considerably better video recording quality
720 x 30fpsvs 720 x 25fps (Canon IXUS 132)
4.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (Canon IXUS 132)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
5.Distinctly faster maximum shutter speed
0.0004svs 0.0005s (Canon IXUS 132)
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
6.Significantly bigger screen size
3"vs 2.7" (Canon IXUS 132)
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
7.Significantly greater zoom range
12xvs 8x (Canon IXUS 132)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
8.Can be charged via standard USB cable
Yesvs No (Canon IXUS 132)
It can be charged and operated with a standard USB cable connected to your computer, or with a USB power supply.
9.Measurably longer maximum focal length
336mmvs 224mm (Canon IXUS 132)
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.
10.Has manual exposure
Yesvs No (Canon IXUS 132)
This allows to manually set the exposure.
11.Has an accelerometer
Yesvs No (Canon IXUS 132)
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.

9 Reasons why Canon IXUS 132 is better

Comparing Canon IXUS 132 vs Canon PowerShot SX150 IS

1.Distinctly more megapixels (photo)
16MPvs 14.1MP (Canon PowerShot SX150 IS)
133gvs 306g (Canon PowerShot SX150 IS)
3.Higher pixel density
256ppivs 230ppi (Canon PowerShot SX150 IS)
92.9mmvs 113.3mm (Canon PowerShot SX150 IS)
5.Vastly less body volume
105.15cm³vs 379.84cm³ (Canon PowerShot SX150 IS)
6.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot SX150 IS)
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.
52.4mmvs 73.2mm (Canon PowerShot SX150 IS)
21.6mmvs 45.8mm (Canon PowerShot SX150 IS)
9.Reasonably wider aperture at minimum focal length
3.2vs 3.4 (Canon PowerShot SX150 IS)
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.
