1. Canon PowerShot A2500

7 Reasons why Canon PowerShot A2500 is better

Comparing Canon PowerShot A2500 vs Canon PowerShot SX170 IS

125gvs 251g (Canon PowerShot SX170 IS)
56mmvs 108mm (Canon PowerShot SX170 IS)
3.Vastly less body volume
114.35cm³vs 337.4cm³ (Canon PowerShot SX170 IS)
20.9mmvs 44mm (Canon PowerShot SX170 IS)
5.Has AF tracking
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot SX170 IS)
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.
6.Sizably wider aperture at minimum focal length
2.8vs 3.5 (Canon PowerShot SX170 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.
7.Has a hot shoe
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot SX170 IS)
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.

13 Reasons why Canon PowerShot SX170 IS is better

Comparing Canon PowerShot SX170 IS vs Canon PowerShot A2500

1.Considerably better video recording quality
720 x 30fpsvs 720 x 25fps (Canon PowerShot A2500)
2.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot A2500)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
3.Measurably faster maximum shutter speed
0.0003125svs 0.0005s (Canon PowerShot A2500)
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
71mmvs 97.7mm (Canon PowerShot A2500)
5.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot A2500)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
6.Clearly bigger screen size
3"vs 2.7" (Canon PowerShot A2500)
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
7.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot A2500)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
8.Sizably greater zoom range
16xvs 5x (Canon PowerShot A2500)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
9.Clearly longer maximum focal length
448mmvs 140mm (Canon PowerShot A2500)
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 PowerShot A2500)
This allows to manually set the exposure.
11.Has manual focus
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot A2500)
This allows to manually set the focus.
12.Has an accelerometer
Yesvs No (Canon PowerShot A2500)
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.
13.Much better battery life
X1 has a 5000mah battery and the battery life is even better than iPad mini 2
