Canon SX230HS

on 12/30/2011

Camera arrived in a timely manner from Beach Camera. The enclosed case is very compact,light weight, and fits camera nicely. Camera has good feel in your hand and the menues are easy to navigate. Color and sharpness are excellent. This is an excellent camera to take along on a trip when I do not want to bring my Canon 50D or my wife is using her Canon SX50is. Would recommend this camera for a traveler. Flash results are also excellent and natural looking.

Canon Powershot SX230 HS

on 3/22/2012

Nice little camera. Like the dial on outside so it is not always necessary to go into the menu. The zoom is very smooth but if using zoom while shooting video-- can hear the sound in the clip. Don't like the flash placement--if your fingers are on it on upper right --the flash won't open. I need to retrain fingers to only hold at the bottom of the camera.
