The Canon PowerShot SX430 IS is a new budget superzoom camera. The Canon SX430 IS features a 20.5 megapixel 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor and a 45x optical zoom lens which is equivalent to 24-1080mm in 35mm terms. Other key features include Wi-Fi and Dynamic NFC connectivity, 720p movie recording, and intelligent Image Stabilizer for stills and movies,Super zoom or ?bridge? cameras have typically been bulky affairs, whilst the focal range of so-called ?travel? cameras has been slightly ham-strung by the fact of still needing to produce a camera that will slip readily into pocket or day bag. Announced back in February and newly arrived, the Canon PowerShot SX430 IS seeks, in our opinion at least, to offer a ?best of both? solution, strapping a whopping yet still impressively compact 45x optical reach to the front of a camera that resembles a consumer grade SLR (or enthusiast level super zoom), yet one that?s been conveniently shrunk in the wash. It?s really difficult to appreciate how diminutive this camera is, just from going by the press shots in advance of its arrival in your hands. We managed to squeeze just two adult sized fingers around its handgrip, leaving our forefinger hovering over the conveniently placed shutter release button at its topper-most edge, itself encircled by the lever for adjusting the zoom.
