Best Canon PowerShot Camera That Shoots Raw and Long Battery Life

Hello Bruce!

Thank You SO much for sharing your time and expert knowledge. I appreciate it immensely!

I have spent the last three hours online researching Canon PowerShot Cameras and it looks like my long hours of searching have landed me at the right place! YAY! :)

Okay, so, this is my dilemma:

I've had two Canon PowerShot cameras myself in the past and was very pleased with them. That was a few years ago and the aforementioned cameras are no longer with us :(

These were: the Canon PowerShot A 570 IS
and after that I had the Canon PowerShot SX 110 IS

NOW I'm searching for a Canon PowerShot camera for my twin brother! (it's his belated Birthday Present) (It will also be the same Canon Camera I'll also buy for myself next :))I feel sooooo overwhelmed by all the different reviews, please Bruce, heeelp meee!

I have a budget of $500 (Australian) and my "only" other "non-negotiable" specifications are:

- Be able to shoot in raw format. First and most important! (as you'd know!)
- Looooong battery life.
-"Decent" (or better than!)zoom (for nature close-ups and wild-life).
-"Decent" (or better than!)low-light pictures.

- Optical viewfinder (not essential, nice to have!)

Please Bruce, can you help me?! I need to make a decision by yesterday! and I have NO idea which camera to go for; I'm also wondering whether I ought to research the 2 previous Canon PowerShot cameras I mentioned that I had previously owned. Maybe I ought to have a look?

Thank you so, so much again for your website and all the valuable time and information you so generously share.

I'll be checking back first thing tomorrow, hoping my question gets through to you and you can help me out.

With Gratitude from Andia (at 4:30 in the morning, in Sydney, Australia!)



Hi Andia,

Thanks for asking about the best Powershot with RAW mode, long battery life, and a good zoom range. Both the Canon PowerShot A 570 IS and Canon PowerShot SX 110 IS are well past a decade old. If you liked both of those two cameras, you'll love the Canon Powershots of today.

I don't have a lot of experience with Powershots, other than the G series, including my all time favorite advanced point and shoot, the G1X Mark II. You'll be able to easily stay under your budget of $500 if you're choosing a Canon Powershot Point and Shoot.

I can't recommend just one to you because I don't have enough knowledge about them except what I'd read on camera review sites and Amazon.

Good luck,
Bruce

Best Canon PowerShot
by: Andia

Hi again Bruce!

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for your very prompt reply to my question. I appreciate it so much!

I've had a look at the Canon you recommended, that you use, and I'm still doing research; there's so much information and too many different cameras, it gets quite overwhelming. Anyway, I'm sure I'll get there in the end.

Thank you again kindly and I'll be returning to your site for all things Canon (I've bookmarked you!)

Best wishes from me, From Sydney, all the way to beautiful Canada.

Andia
