With the classically stylish PowerShot SX20 IS, you can produce magnificent HD movies and dazzling photos. Loaded with features, it's got a high-powered 20x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer, 12.1 Megapixels, a big 2.5-inch Vari-Angle LCD, Blink Detection and more.
I have had this camera for about two years now and I still love it, it has great quality and functions. It took me a while to figure out how to use some of the settings because there is no guide telling you how to use the aperture speed and shutter speed and what they are for. This is a great camera for someone who knows how to use a SLR and is also good for those who wish to learn because it has different modes where you can change different settings. This camera is great for anything from a birthday party to eagle watching.
Great Super Zoom Canon SX20is8/6/2012
Terrific camera. The last of the super zooms that can use AA batteries, which is very important to me. Has a 2.5 " LCD display that can be angled, swivled, turned around, and when not in use, can be folded against the back to protect from scratches. It also has a view -finder, which so many digital cameras no longer have. Lots of features and options for taking great photos. "Complete" instruction guide can be down-loaded from included disc.
Best superzoom camera yet6/26/2011
Having tried over a dozen digital cameras I've found the features and picture quality of the SX20 IS to be the best yet in this size and weight. Naturally everyone wants better low light performance and while this could still be better, its the best I've seen in cameras other than digital SLRs.
