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.
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 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.
Excerpt: this is a great well made camera... that you are able to shoot just about anything! moving or standing... the zoom fucntion is high quailty and i can even zoom and see the trees on the mounthain behind my house! this camera records in HD! which is great! and you can even hook the camera up to your tv and look at the pictures... battery life is good! and the flash is great! just have to keep the lens clean! i am still learning new things to do with this camera...
The Canon sx20 has a ton of amazing features for its size.

Excerpt: I bought this camera thinking i would use it until i could save up for a more expensive one, but later found it was everything i needed and more. It has 12.1 megapixels and 720p video. So instead of buying a nice hd camera and a nice digital camera i have them both with me. It's price is more then reasonable. I really enjoy the custom settings i am able to set on it. It feels like a 1000 dollar plus piece of equipment but really is under 500.
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.
