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!
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.
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.
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.
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: 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.
Summary: I got the best price possible on this camera. The Canon SX230 HS is an earlier model to the now current SX260 HS and the SX280 HS cameras. It has a lot of features for a travel zoom camera and does fairly well in low light situations.
