The Canon SX420 has a 42X optical zoom lens, which smartphone cameras cannot match. You'll have to decide whether carrying this large camera is something you want to do to gain the benefit of the large zoom lens, but you will be impressed with the types of photos you can shoot because of the large optical zoom of this camera provides.
Outside of its optical zoom lens, the PowerShot SX420 has many features that will remind you of other point-and-shoot cameras. The SX420’s image quality is good with adequate lighting and below-average in low light. It is easy to use with almost no manual controls, meaning it works best as an automatic camera, and it carries a reasonable price that makes it a tempting option.
