Precision Canon Optics
Powerful 16x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle LensThe PowerShot SX160 IS features a powerful Genuine Canon 16x optical zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. With precision engineering and decades of leadership in optical technologies, Canon has created a bright, wide-angle lens that provides an extraordinary 16x zoom range. The lens starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 448mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), giving you tremendous coverage and reach. The telephoto end lets you capture subjects from a considerable distance, while the 28mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings. Moreover, this superb lens incorporates innovative designs that enable it to fit the compact profile of the PowerShot SX160 IS.
Optical Image StabilizerHandheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon's optical image stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical in more shooting situations, providing excellent image quality in many difficult situations: Outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For still photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image and because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.

I will recommend this camera to people who want just start learning digital photography in budget.
But I wandered with the quality of accessories with which this camera comes. The battery charger and the battery is not at all use able. It is better not to ship those worthless things with the camera. Those things are provided with the shipment only to fool the customers. This will degrade the goodwill of Canon product.
It is my suggestion to Canon product owner to check the accessories provided by the vendor before shipping to the customer. This will in the long run degrade the goodwill to the product.
Literally I am not using the battery charger and battery as they are worthless. No need to ship those items along with the product. This will only fool the customers.
