What will it do that a cell phone won't?

18x optical zoom

doesn't need to be charged every night

larger sensor (1/2.3") than most cell phones

And,,,you have a real camera,,,, with full control of ISO, aperture, and shutter speed.

You look like a real photographer, with a real camera, instead of somebody with a smartphone taking photos.

There are art filters galore built into the Powershot SX series cameras, too.

With the addition of a cheap Flash Air SD card, which has a wireless LAN router built inot the card, these old Canon Powershot SX series cameras become capable of wireless transfer of full size photos to your computer or smartphone.

And for videos, there is no comparison whatsoever, the real camera just blows the smartphone away.

The only advantages the smartphone has over the SX Powershot series is the newer smartphones have a faster lens, and it's easier to post photos on social media using the smartphone, although the Flash Air SD cards remove a lot of the wireless advantages of the smartphone.

To persuade a customer to carry around a camera instead of a smartphone, the camera makers have had to deliver a very competent camera at a reasonable price for a long time, now.
