5 May 2013
Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a compact digital camera in a compact but feature-rich. It has large display, high resolution, HDMI input, HD video clips, manual controls for professionals, Optical Image Stabilizer, Face Detection.
Pros: OPTICAL ZOOM, Hand Controls, Sensor Resolution, Face Detection, Smile Shutter.
Conclusion: For its market, the PowerShot SX210 IS does a good job of meeting what most people want from their super-zoom compacts. It produces consistent images in its automatic setting and the results straight out of camera should look pleasing in a 6x4 print.
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
Summary: Another classic Canon strategy is, for better or worse, to trump the competition in the numbers game. So it's not surprising to find the PowerShot SX210 IS sporting the longest zoom range and joint highest resolution of its peer group with 14 Megapixels and a 14x optical zoom.
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.
This small Canon digital camera includes a big 14x zoom lens, but we found the controls difficult to use
