  • 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 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.

The HS suffix stands for High Sensitivity, providing enhanced low light performance using a back-illuminated CMOS sensor.

  • 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.

Canon PowerShot SX230 HS Review

Digital Camera Review
28 April 2011
  • Excerpt: 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. It's hard to miss where the GPS chip is located on the SX230 - it's labeled alongside the shutter, a bump that takes up quite a bit of real estate on the top of the camera.
  • Pros: Excellent Image Quality, GPS, Works well in low light, HD video is superb, Fully manual control
  • Cons: GPS functionality could be better utilized, Design is last year's, Overexposure at telephoto focal range
