This Canon point-and-shoot camera is small enough to fit in your pocket and offers a wide range of valuable capabilities at an attractive price. We used one to determine how well this (still-popular) camera has held up since it was first introduced on the market.

On the top of the camera is where you’ll find the power button, the flash, a little microphone, and the shutter button with a zoom wheel. All of the dials are on the right side of the camera.

You may wear the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS around your neck without the camera’s weight is an issue because it is tiny enough to fit in a back pocket, small handbag, or jacket pocket.

However, if you do not check the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS closely, you may misplace it because it is less substantial than a mobile phone.

Canon PowerShot SX620 HS Display

Because of its user-friendly design, people of all ages will have a good time learning how to operate the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS camera. In addition, the brightness of the three-inch LCD makes it simple to compose still images and video clips (the camera does not have an optical viewfinder).

Because of its user-friendly design, people of all ages will have a good time learning how to operate the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS camera.

One drawback of this camera is that it does not have a touch screen, which, if it had, would make navigating the menus considerably less complicated and the whole experience much more friendly to users. Because there aren’t many customization options, the absence of a touch screen is a nuisance, but it’s not a deal-breaker.

Canon PowerShot SX620 HS Sensor

The Canon PowerShot SX620 HS utilizes a CMOS sensor of 1/2.3 inches and 20.2 megapixels. This sensor is acceptable for a compact point-and-shoot camera. In addition, the strong DIGIC 4 image processor helps increase the camera’s photo quality, resulting in rich color, smooth gradation, and fine detail even when lighting settings are not optimum.

Image capture is accomplished promptly with significantly less noise, thanks to the cooperative efforts of the sensor and the CPU. In addition, the processing power of the DIGIC 4 enables the camera to take many shots in rapid succession while maintaining accurate focusing. This helps to ensure that the still photos and the captured videos are clear and distinct.

While the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS employs the DIGIC 4 Image Processor, newer cameras from Canon, such as the Canon PowerShot SX740 HS, use an upgraded DIGIC 8 image processor, which gives improved image quality, image stabilization, and the ability to record better quality videos. However, even if you get a great price, purchasing an older camera like the SX620 HS has certain drawbacks, such as this one.

Canon PowerShot SX620 HS Video Quality

The Canon PowerShot SX620 HS is an excellent camera for making quick video clips and catching fleeting moments. The Canon PowerShot SX620 HS can record in 1080p at 30 frames per second, resulting in colors and tones of excellent quality. However, the camera cannot shoot in slow motion because it is fixed at 30 frames per second.

As you can probably surmise on your own, the PowerShot SX620 is not designed to make movies; instead, its primary purpose is to capture introductory videos at an acceptable quality. If you want more than that, we suggest looking at more powerful small action cameras such as the GoPro HERO7 Black. Despite its small size, this camera can record in 4K and offers incredible slow-motion frame rate options.

Canon PowerShot SX620 HS Image Quality

We got the impression from the photographs we shot with this camera that it would be an excellent choice for making modest picture prints or uploading them to social media. Images captured with a Canon PowerShot SX620 HS appear fantastic when viewed on a computer or smartphone, highlighting the camera’s excellent clarity and accurate color rendering.

Because of the camera’s tiny sensor and file output, the Canon PowerShot SX630 HS does not produce photos with a level of detail suitable for printing on a large scale.

Because of its tiny sensor and file output, the Canon PowerShot SX630 HS does not produce photos with a level of detail suitable for printing on a large scale. This camera only generates JPEG shots, which are compressed, intrinsical files of inferior quality. The inability to take RAW images offers little space for correction before the images break apart.

Canon PowerShot SX620 HS Battery Life

The Canon PowerShot SX620 HS has a respectable battery life, rated at 295 shots but can be increased to 405 images when the camera is set to ECO mode.

When the battery was charged entirely, we found that it lasted for around one hour and 45 minutes shooting time.

Always have a spare battery with you, but this is especially important if you want to shoot for a lengthy period in one day.

Batteries for cameras often do not last for extended periods, and this is especially true for cameras like the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS, which has substantial LCD screens.

Because the LCD serves as the principal viewing medium for images, prolonged use will hasten the rate at which battery life is depleted.
