Looking for a perfect way to begin freezing parts of your life in picture frames? Canon’s newest shooter, the PowerShot SX500 IS is indeed the perfect way to take your first baby steps in photography. Built specifically for beginner shutterbugs, this entry level camera is a better way to picture-taking than a bunch of similarly priced mediocre point-and-shoot cameras and comes with a 24mm wide angle lens and a 30x optical zoom. Compact and extremely easy to use as compared to its heavy set siblings, this Canon packs a 16-megapixel sensor and a DIGIC 4 image processor, topped with the Intelligent IS system and HD video recording capabilities. Complete with a crystal clear 3-inch LCD display, the PowerShot SX500 IS will show up in September with a reasonably sound price tag of $329.99.
