This camera’s zoom range is equivalent to 24mm to 1080mm on a full frame camera. The zoom range (focal length) of this camera is very wide. The Canon PowerShot SX430 IS has also been supported by an image stabilizer. With the image stabilizer so that it can reduce the risk of shaking. Because the camera will experience shaking when zooming in.
Furthermore this camera has a focal length of 4.3mm to 193.5mm. This is one reason why this camera uses form-factors like DSLRs. Unlike other compact cameras that are thinner and can be pocketed.
Canon PowerShot SX430 IS Technology
When many cameras already use CMOS sensors, this series uses old sensors. Image sensor used is CCD type. However, on the other hand the Canon PowerShot SX430 IS is supported by large megapixels. That is 20 megapixels. So that this camera is able to produce good image quality. While the image processor used is DIGIC 4+. Where the processor is based on an economical version and is old enough from the ranks of the image processor.
As for ISO, this camera has limited capabilities. So it is recommended to be used when lighting is sufficient. The outdoor area is the other wrong. Can use auto settings, or manually controlled using several shooting modes. Not all shooting modes allow the use of ISO manually.
Interesting Menu System

The menu is Photo resolution (which deals with megapixels and photo file size) and the level of detail that you want to achieve (fine and superfine).
Canon PowerShot SX430 IS LCD
This camera has a standard sized LCD display 3.0 inc. But the low resolution is only 230,000 dots. This camera does not have a viewfinder or viewfinder like a DSLR. All menu accesses as well as a preview of the composition of the image are taken through the LCD display. There is no control ring for selecting shooting mode, or for ISO settings, or for setting lens openings, or other menu controls related to image creativity. The only lever available is a lever for zooming in / out. And, the only ring button available is the camera’s main navigation button.
Shutter Speed Canon PowerShot SX430 IS
There are 2 shutter speed controls on this camera. In auto mode, the shutter speed range is from 1 s to 1/4000 s. With its super zoom capability, shutter 1 s is quite reasonable considering the increasing zoom, the higher the risk of shaking. Increasing shutter capabilities of more than 1 s (2 s or more) will only make this camera always at risk of producing blurry images. Meanwhile, if needed, the maximum shutter speed supported reaches 15 s. But this shutter speed can only be accessed from other shooting modes (other than auto).

However, there are some standard features that still exist on the Canon PowerShot SX430 IS. Even so, this camera can produce good images. Especially when it’s quite light. So, this camera is very suitable for outdoor spaces.
