Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SX210 is a no-nonsense camera that packs a long 14x optical-zoom lens into a small body. But this camera doesn't excel in low light, and images show some color fringing.
Pros: Sharp images. 14x optical zoom. 3-inch LCD is easily viewable in direct sunlight, and shows virtually no motion blur. Well-designed interface. Mini-HDMI port. Stereo audio recording in video mode.
Cons: Images show noticeable color fringing. Not suited for low light shooting without a flash. LCD's 16:9 aspect ratio means black bars around 4:3 images.
Summary: The PowerShot SX210 aims to please. Its 14x optical zoom will give you a wide range of opportunities, and a full array of manual and auto exposure modes will put as much control in your hands as you want. Top it off with a wide aspect, 3.0-inch LCD and you’ve got a well-equipped compact ultrazoom.
Pros: Good quality images, HD video allows zoom, Versatile lens

Excerpt: The Canon Powershot SX210 is an update on the SX200 model and sits mid-range among PowerShot models. It is, though, the most powerful compact-sized model and comes with an impressive feature list.
Pros: Clean design, lots of creative control, impressive video
Cons: 16:9 format screen that leaves a small image display

Pros: 14x optical zoom: longest range of rival models., 14 Megapixels: joint highest resolution of peers., 720p HD movies with matching 16:9 screen., Great auto modes or full manual if you prefer.
Cons: Flash always pops-up even when disabled., Slow continuous shooting at full resolution., Zoom motor is audible when filming video., Widescreen monitor not ideal shape for 4:3 stills.
