Top Seven Reasons for the
Canon PowerShot A2500
Compared to Canon PowerShot SX170 IS
126 g lighter
Significantly less body volume
2.95x less body volume
52 mm narrower
Has AF tracking
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
23.10 mm thinner
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.
Has a hot shoe
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
Significantly faster maximum shutter speed
1.60x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
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.
26.70 mm shorter
A bit bigger screen size
11.11% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
Noticeably greater zoom range
11 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.
Significantly longer maximum focal length
308 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 manual shutter speed
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
Has manual focus
This allows to manually set the focus.
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.
Much better battery life
X1 has a 5000mah battery and the battery life is even better than iPad mini 2
