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.

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...
Summary: Great camera, all the features I need plus.... Very flexible and yet easy to use in program mode, takes all the guesswork out of quick photo opps. Love that I can just buy batteries at any gas station and don't have to charge the battery in the camera when I need to use it.
Summary: What a marvelous little camera! I bought this because my friend has one and takes fantastic pictures with it and I have not been disappointed with my purchase. The zoom is amazing and I love the fact that it will automatically change to macro when it senses a close-up shot.
Excerpt: Really good camera for starters who have dilemma to go for DSLR or P&S...High zoom with image stablization works out well....buttons and the menus are really useful..HD recording is another plus...LCDs are crisp and clear but too small..
Summary: The SX20 IS had one of the better quality 720p HD videos I've come across in a compact, and the zoom function of the lens is available. The ability of the camera to switch to video from whatever shooting mode you're in by merely pushing the movie button is a nice feature, and while recording you can...
Summary: I purchased a refurbished camera Canon Powershot SX20 IS 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera for a very good price. It came in perfect condition, no scratches, one wouldn't even think that it is not new. The only problem with the camera was that it didn't work.
Summary: I like the sound for videos.I like hd 1280 x 720 the images are great.It takes aa batteries a plus i can use rechargeable.No manual is not good.I dont like the round spinning control cause it doesnt stay.it should snap right?
