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 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.
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.
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).

Summary: The Canon PowerShot SX230 HS is available now with a suggested retail price of $349.99 US.
