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.
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. I would highly recommend this for amature to advanced photographers. LOVE 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. And then there is the super macro setting if you even want to get smaller! It is very easy to use and has a lot of features if you want to get creative with your photography.

Summary: I have been in the market for a new digital camera for awhile. I needed one with some specific features, like a long zoom and the ability to take action shots. After doing some online research I narrowed it down to a couple models, but ended up with the Canon due to price and availability. I'm really glad I did get the Canon! This camera takes amazing photos. The super zoom is excellent and can really get you close to the action.

Summary: I bought this for my husband to take close-up nature shots but I've used it more than he has. It takes great photos. And the zoom is so much more than I expected. At a baseball game I could get a close-up action shots of the pitcher and other players on the field. They were great. We used it at a recent air show for pictures and videos. I zoomed alot to get close-ups and thought with the speed of the planes and my shaking they would be blurry but they weren't.
Summary: I reviewed the PowerShot SX200 IS a short while ago on Canon's and Amazon's website and rated it very highly. Nonetheless, I decided to return it in exchange for the PowerShot SX20 IS. This camera offers the following additional advantages: a viewfinder; HD video recording with optical zoom throughout the zoom range plus stereo sound; a form factor much more like that of an SLR: it is on the heavy side, but easy to hold and the viewfinder allows you to hold the camera...
