Glad with the purchase7/9/2012
A personal and family use camera. It is an excellent camera for family vacations, get-togethers and parties.
A shirt pocket camera with auto and manual shutter and aperture controls, it meets every need.
This is my fist digital camera and i felt its best one... excellent zoom and more reliable. Only issue I felt is when you want flash it will open in the place where you hold at the top.. except this ... its one of the best camera
Compact size, 14x zoom lens, flexible manual shooting modes, zoom works in HD video mode. The feature-loaded Canon PowerShot SX210 IS offers a blend of automatic and manual features, in addition to a 14.1-megapixel resolution, a 14x zoom lens and stereo audio for HD movies (720p).
The red-eye correction works best if the setting is to reduce during the photo taking. Day photos - vivid, clear, and overall superb quality. Low-light - great quality.
there is sort of an increase in picture quality because I can get in close on my subject and not have to crop my pictures and lose resolution later. The video function is also a plus. The sound from the stereo mic is decent and, again, the zoom lens really comes into play in terms of the shots you can get. I've shot videos of my kids on stage, clear across a large hall, and really come up with some nice clips. I haven't used the manual settings on this camera as much as I thought I would. I've found it difficult to focus accurately or quickly enough with the little wheel.
It's all about the zoom6/7/2011
This is a very fun compact camera. I don't believe they upgraded the sensor from previous Powershot cameras so the picture quality isn't a miracle or anything. What is really cool about the sx 210 is the zoom lens. I get shots with this camera that just wouldn't have been possible with my old Elf. There is such a huge difference between using the true optical zoom on this or the digital zoom of my old camera. In that way, there is sort of an increase in picture quality because I can get in close on my subject and not have to crop my pictures and lose resolution later. The video function is also a plus. The sound from the stereo mic is decent and, again, the zoom lens really comes into play in terms of the shots you can get. I've shot videos of my kids on stage, clear across a large hall, and really come up with some nice clips. I haven't used the manual settings on this camera as much as I thought I would. I've found it difficult to focus accurately or quickly enough with the little wheel. I play with it sometimes for macro shots and such but, primarily, I've used the automatic function to good effect. Someone who wants to spend the time and play with the various functions and gimmicks will probably enjoy this quite a bit. I tend to have my hands full these days and it has been very useful as a point and shoot, enhanced significantly by the ability to zoom in close. The pop-up flash takes some getting used to but over time I've come to like that feature. There are a lot of times I don't want the flash to fire and it's nice to be able to just snap it shut or hold it shut as you turn on the camera. It becomes second nature eventually.
This is my first camera :-). Very compact and nice camera. Zooming 14x is awesome and the HD video is very good. whenever you taking photo while moving, the photos are very clarity only. Nice look and style. Overall good.
Very small-pocketsized piece. The colors are awesome with perfect black balance. I like all the details of this cam. It’s everything I wanted. The control for video mode is awesome. For one thing, the sony I owned prior to this wouldn’t zoom as fastly as this one does. The focus in this one when in continuous mode is great. For non-professionals who don’t know how to handle the various options, they have got th ez button, and if you can compose a pic correctly, you can probably get the dslr effect.
Replacement Compact Camera11/15/2010
This digital camera was purchased to replace my previous compact camera, kept in my vehicle so that I'd have a camera when those unexpected shots came along. So far it appears to be an excellent product with a considerably more capable lens system.
