Amazing zoom capability and view finder is a big plus...love it !!

  • Summary: I owned the same camera for several years but lost it in a boating accident. Thrilled to have been able to replace it as they do not make this model any longer. I love the fact that it has a view finder as well as the LCD screen. It makes taking photos outside much easier.It also has a feature that enables you to view the photos you have taken with a focus adjustment. For example, my eye sight requires reading glasses or the photo appears to be out of focus.

Fails in Controls,too many megapixels for sensor,and Bad Burst mode,but....

  • Summary: It's a good camera, don't get me wrong.. BUT:FAIL on this control-wheel dial on the back you're expected to turn with your thumbnail to change focus, aperture or whatever...because it doubles as as selector for ISO,MF,Timer,and Macro there's no way I (with human thumbs), can turn it without clicking one of these dialogues...lots of cameras use these control wheels-they all fail for me.I wish Canon had stayed with the S3's all-clickable controls.

The perfect "bridge" camera

  • Summary: Great camera for someone ready for more capability without spending a fortune. The 20X optical zoom is amazing.
  • Pros: 20X zoom, tilt/pivot view screen, manual shooting modes, 1280 HD video
  • Cons: lense hood falls off, lag between mode control and viewer, noise above 160 ISO

  • Excerpt: I take thousand of pictures and love my Cannon camera. Would not use any other brand! I can get a little shaky and the Image Satbalizer works wonders. People always comment on the great photos I take...couldnt take them without such a great camera.

The Canon Power Shot SX201S Digital Camera is fantastic.

  • Excerpt: What a difference this camera has made in the quality of pictures I take.  I have a 3-year old granddaughter and I love taking her picture.  With a 3-year-old, they are always moving and still I get excellent pictures, even at gymnastics.  It is easy to use and doesn't seem to use up batteries as fast as my other camera use to.  It's good for every kind of picture from scenery to fast moving kids.

  • Excerpt: I have only had my ** Canon PowerShot SX20 IS Digital Camera for a couple months but I love it.  It is easy to use with lots of options.  I love the picture quality, the image stabilizer is a great feature.  I learn how to use a different feature everytime I use it, which is 3-4 times a week.

PowerShot is good but my flash went out 6 months after purchase.

  • Excerpt: The Canon Power Shot is a great camera. It takes great quality photos as long as you are sitting very still. If you move much, it is blurry. Just 6 months after purchasing this camera (NEW), my flash stopped working. After the warranty is up, it costs $150 (approx) to replace the flash and it's really hard to find a replacement. You have to send your camera to Canon to have it replaced for 1/2 of the cost of the camera. I think that's insane!

Cannon Power Shot is number one in my book!

  • Excerpt: I bought a Cannon Power Shot sx20 2 years ago formyself as a birthday present for ME>  I was single at the time and was not expecting anything really nice and cheap from my friends and I don't have  family to speak of back then anyway but I wanted a nice camera.  I was sick of the poloroyds or the pics that come out right away for you.

  • Excerpt: This camera works soooo good my family is never going to put it down. Yes, it may be on a litle bit of the pricey side, but when you get this baby in you hands, oh- you'll know it's worth it! The power zoom, clearness, and flash is just icing on the proverbial cake! I love this camera. I have been using it for almost a year!

Big fan of the Canon PowerShot SX20!

  • Excerpt: I have always owned Canon PowerShots and decided to up grade to one that had greater zoom capability.  I didn't want to spend $200.00 more on the Rebel so I thought I would give this model a try and was pleasantly surprised!  I have two young children and this camera works great when put on the sports mode to catch their quick movements.  It is a little slow between shots if you use the other photo modes but the return time is pretty quick on the sports mode.
