Picture Quality

Has an Image Stabilizer

The Canon SX620 HS has an image stabilizer. Most of the other new comparable spec cameras also have an image stabilizer.

We compared all the other digital cameras with an image stabilizer to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon D3300 ($298.98), and the Pentax K-70 ($599.00) is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative cameras which also have an image stabilizer including the Canon EOS M3 ($400.60).
