Summary: Overall, the camera is very good and has many very nice features. When I purchased it, I really thought that it would be much more compact in size. It is quite large compared with many other point and shoot digital cameras with similar features.
Nice point and shoot camera. Zoom is fine, but it's no SLR.

Summary: Please see Cooper's Hawk picture above. I like this camera because it has 14x optical zoom, which is great for zooming in on people, but not so great for difficult wildlife pictures. I was hoping I might be able to take this camera backpacking and leave my SLR behind to save weight.
Summary: I wanted to get a camcorder for our newborn. After many researches and testing of 2 other camcorder in $300 price range(Sanyo VPC-FH1A, Panasonic SDR-H100) I've decided to get a travel zoom type camera with good photo and video quality.
Summary: I was hoping to find a still/video camera that would give me the low light performance of my Fuji F20 and also allow me to avoid hauling around a separate HD camcorder. My tests of the Canon SX210 and Nikon S8100 show that the low light photos from the SX210 are very good but the Nikon has the edge...
Summary: I bought this camera (as did two of my relatives) for two reasons: I gave it to my daughter before she went to Africa (and on a safari) so she could take amazing photos with a pocket size camera, and it didn't disappoint. It has a 14X OPTICAL zoom - rare for a small digital camera!
Summary: Reviewed a lot of point and shoot cameras before selecting this one. Pros: Takes great pictures and has a great zoom for a such a little camera. And, it's good in low light. Cons: This is not a great action camera...not fast and a little fuzzy.
Summary: I bought this camera specifically for a trip to National Parks in the southwest. The pictures turned out great. I also brought along my old camera and my husband took pictures with it (Sony Cybershot). His pictures didn't have the clarity and color that the Canon had.
Summary: This is a great little camera. The quality of the photos and the features are perfect for us. Our only complaint is that using it is clumsy because of the flash and how it is positioned. It wasn't distracting enough to return the camera and we are hoping we can get used to it.
Summary: I bought this camera after much research,just before making a trip overseas, so I had less than a week to use to it before I left. Great camera, was easy to use and I love the 14x zoom. I was able to get excellent pics and video while sightseeing around Prague.
