  • Summary: The 14X lens is the star feature that I found during my Canon PowerShot SX230 review, without question. When you see a zoom lens that powerful on a camera as thin and stylish as the PowerShot SX230, you're sure to notice.

  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SX230 HS is a top choice if you want a long zoom lens, plus bonus features like GPS, in a camera that can fit in your pocket.
  • Pros: 14x optical zoom lens, in a small pocketable body. Sharp images. Good low light performance. Fast. Includes GPS for geotagging photos. High-res LCD.
  • Cons: 1080p video capture limited to 24fps. No refocusing while recording video. 16:9 widescreen LCD isn't great for shooting 4:3 still images.

  • Excerpt: As DSLRs do not seem to be shrinking in size there still seems to be room in the kit bag — or pocket! — for a highly featured compact that can handle much of the shooting you need. And besides, could you really afford a 14x zoom for a DSLR?

  • Summary: The biggest distinction between the new Canon PowerShot SX230 HS and its SX210 predecessor is an on-board GPS tracker. Users now have the option to geo-tag pictures when they push the shutter.
  • Pros: Great image quality, Good low light performer, HD video is superb
  • Cons: Some overexposure, GPS logging drains battery, GPS buried in sub-menus
