Canon PowerShot SX230 HS Review
26 April 2013
Excerpt: If you've always wanted a large-zoom point and shoot camera, but you haven't wanted to deal with the bulky camera body, Canon may have the answer for you: The Canon PowerShot SX230 HS camera, which is small, but includes a 14X optical zoom lens.
Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot SX230 HS might be the perfect addition to your family if you’re looking for a slightly cheaper but just as powerful version to the SX260. This camera provides equal image and video quality and has many of the features present in the higher range model. It lacks in only slight variations with the specifications, physical appearance and functionality.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX230 HS is a 12.1 Megapixel pocket super-zoom with a 14x stabilised range and a 3in screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The HS suffix stands for High Sensitivity, providing enhanced low light performance using a back-illuminated CMOS sensor.
With fully automatic operation featuring scene recognition and face detection as well as full manual and semi auto exposure modes, the SX230 HS will appeal across the spectrum, but is likely to attract more...
Pros: Great image quality - best of peer group., 1080p24 HD video., GPS receiver., Good low light performance.
Cons: Wide-end of zoom 'only' delivers 28mm., Flash pops up unnecessarily., Poor battery life., Chromatic aberration (colour fringing).
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? Canon’s PowerShot SX230 HS is a trim little model, packed with features that set it above many of its peers.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX230HS is priced slightly higher than most compact cameras found in the market. However, it provides the user with a wide array of features that really made this camera stand out amongst other compacts. We were hard pressed to find any flaws with this camera as it did well on all counts, be it design, build quality, features and performance.
