12 Reasons why Canon PowerShot SX500 IS is better

than the average

341gvs 376g (the average)
vs 65.5g (best: HTC Re)
2.Has WiFi
Yesvs No (67% don't have it)
The device can connect to WiFi.
3.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
69.5mmvs 95.2mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
5.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
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.Slightly bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
7.Notably less shutter lag
0.29svs 16.33s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
8.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
9.Measurably greater zoom range
30xvs 12x (the average)
vs 83.3x (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
10.Substantially longer maximum focal length
720mmvs 273mm (the average)
vs 2000mm (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
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.
11.Significantly shorter minimum focal length
24mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
