Amazing zoom capability and view finder is a big plus...love it !!
5 April 2013
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.
Learning and loving my Canon PowerShot SX20 IS Digital Camera.

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.
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 was looking for a camera with lots of functions and features, versatility, that takes good quality photos and videos and decided on the Canon SX20IS. I am partial to Canon in general since I have been very happy with all my past Canon experiences, opposed to my Nikon experiences. I didn't want to buy a DLSR because I didn't want to have to worry about learning about all the different lenses and carrying a million of them out with me everytime I wanted to take some...
Excerpt: So, I was shopping around for my husband for Christmas this past year, and I knew I wanted to get him a camera. In all honesty, I didn't look much into the brand and prices, anything research really that I probably should have. BUT, this I have to say was one of my greatest buys! The camera, itself, has no accessory lens' to buy. The magnification and detail with the lens that is built in is just absolutely enough to take the pictures you need.
Excerpt: I have used the Canon PowerShot SX20 on vacation, at weddings, and in every day life and love it. The pictures and films are always clear and sharp. It is so nice to know that when I snap a picture (or flick) it is going to turn out. Many times others have asked for copies of the Pictures I've taken because they came out better than theirs. The only picture that I can remember that I was not happy with was the one that had a fly land on the lense just as I snapped!
Excerpt: This is a fantastic "mid" camera. I really wanted an SLR, but didn't think I was ready and didn't think I'd be buying many lenses. This camera is a fantastic compromise. It has many of the same controls that an SLR camera has, AMAZING zoom abilities, and I don't even use my video camera anymore because this takes such great videos. Battery life is great and pictures are crisp. I do wish it performed a bit better in low light.
