    "The Canon PowerShot SX530 is arguably the best optical zoom camera on the market. It has a ridiculous 50x zoom with shake correction which I used to capture amazing pictures of animals from a safe distance. The wifi connectivity allows for easy transfer of pictures too. "

    "Based on the reviews, this is a pretty good camera although not the best. The price is fairly reasonable, though. It does have the 30x optical zoom, but not much more."

    "This camera is a life saver! Usually when I search online, I tend to get caught in reviews that claim an item is better than what it is. I needed a camera for an upcoming vacation to the Grand Canyon with my family and was praying that I wouldn't fall for another scammed 5 star review. When I saw this camera I gave it a shot because the design is sleek and beautiful (also Canon is a great brand). I was absolutely blown away by the clarity and how vivid, yet realistic colors displayed on my LCD screen. The battery life lasted way longer than expected and if I could give this camera 100 stars, I would."

    "Samsung makes good electronics, but cameras are a bit more specialized. I think if you are going to get a camera separate from your phone, you should get a high end camera."
