Excerpt: I have had the Canon PowerShot SX230 HS for about 2 years and it's rugged and went everywhere with me. I've even printed some of the shots in a BLURB book and you can't tell which shots I took with my Nikon DSLR's or this camera! The zoom was why I originally bought the camera- 14X which was very good at the time it came out. I mostly used the camera for it's HD video and it never disappointed. It was great in all lighting conditions.
Summary: I've had my Powershot SX230 HS for over 3 years now (purchased in December 2011). It's been all over the place with us: Disneyland multiple times, a Caribbean cruise, weekend trips, San Diego beaches, everywhere. It takes great pictures outside, and pretty good ones inside. Sometimes the pictures turn out kind of dark but not nearly as bad as some other cameras I've tried.
Summary: Quality of picture is excellent. Very easy to use I purchased this camera because My son has the same camera. I previously owned a Cannon so I wanted another one when my old one quit working..
Summary: If you have a lot of time and are looking for some extra work and a headache then this camera is for you!! I purchased this camera in October 2013 and I've already sent it in for repair twice. The first time, the LCD screen malfunctioned and the second time it just suddenly wouldn't power on. I had to pay to ship it to the repair center both times and it took close to two weeks until I got it back. This is not what I expected from Canon.
Summary: Let me just say that I have gone through quite a few camera's and I am not easy on them either. I have had this for almost 2 years and it works great! The zoom is just incredible! I have used it for portraits, landscape, scenery and it just works fantastic. I even got water all over/in it a couple months back and I put it in a bag of rice for a while and it still works like a charm!
Summary: The camera is all that I wanted it to be. I needed it for it's GPS availability and it performs great. The photos are crystal clear and the camera is very easy to use. The delivery time was excellent as well.
Summary: It's my first camera. My choise was long and I choise Canon. This camera have stylish black look, zoom 14-x, Hd-video, manual mode. When I picked it up, I did not even know how to turn it on, how to use the zoom. But, when I studied this camera, I think what he is comfortable, easy to use. When i learned M-mode, I enjoy photographing. This is so cool, when do it yourself and get good shot. It's good camera, realy good. I think, what SX230 is camera for evereday.
Summary: So if you buy this hoping for a red case camera, you will be disappointed. The color is a hot pink. The quality of the images is great. I love having a dial to change the settings quickly. Yes, for some options, like low light, I have to deal with the menu buttons. Took some great sunset images in Key West. And while no camera can capture all the colors the human eye can see, this is a point and shoot that can do a fair job at color capture.
