What is a fixed camera lens on the canon point and shoot six 620 camera?

Thanks for your question about the fixed lens on the Canon SX620 HS.

When it's referred to as a fixed lens it has nothing to do with a repair. A fixed lens means that it is fixed in place, permanently mounted to the Canon camera body. Cameras that have lenses that can be removed and changed are call ILC which stands for Interchangeable Lens Cameras.

Advantages of fixed lens on Canon SX620 camera

The fixed lens cameras usually have an extensively zoom lens that can go from very wide angle to long telephoto settings, making them convenient and versatile to use in a large variety of photography situations.

Fixed lens cameras usually come with smaller sensors, enabling the optics to be engineered to have such a large range in zooming.

Thanks,
Bruce
