Not my favorite.

13 May 2013
  • Summary: I used to like point and shoots. This was my last. I spent good money ($350) for this camera and wasn't overly impressed. The 14x zoom was one of the biggest selling points for me.

Canon PS SX230 Review

N. Schumacher "zenuser", Amazon
27 August 2012
  • Summary: Ordering and delivery from Amazon was, as usual, a perfect experience. However, I am disappointed in this camera. This purchase was meant to be a replacement for my wife's 6 year old Casio point and shoot, and as a pocketable alternative to my Canon SLR when I don't feel like carrying all my SLR...

Focusing issues

J. Wells, Amazon
27 May 2012
  • Summary: Although this camera has great specs, I am not impressed with its ability to get focused when zoomed out. I have taken numerous photos of stationary wildlife while zoomed out, but very few of them turned out to be acceptable. Most of them were blurry.

  • Excerpt: I admit I swap out my side belt camera (camera I take everywhere!) about every year, 2 years at the most....I love trying out new pocket cameras. I've used the G10 (Lovely shots but too heavy for your belt or pocket.) Some Panasonic super zoom cameras (the images were fuzzy usually.

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera as an upgrade to my Wife's reliable Panasonic TZ7. The TZ7 was carried in my pocket for years traveling abroad. Bought the SX230HS after reading DP review's favourable comments.

Powerful telephoto, but image clarity & battery life leave something to be desired

M. Rosewater, Amazon
24 December 2011
  • Summary: This is a good camera for its class. The lens is particularly impressive (macro, telephoto, low light, etc.). Gives you good auto as well as manual control, and very cool macro shots. Image quality and color really good, and video is excellent as well.

Canon SX 230

DS "DS", Amazon
3 December 2011
  • Summary: I have to revise this review after using the S95 The SX230 camera does not even come close to the low light advantage of The S95 and the pictures from the S95 are sharper and more true to color.

Lots of potential, but GPS was disappointing

Jim Chou, Amazon
21 August 2011
  • Summary: First, the good: it takes great pictures. Low light performance is the best I've ever seen in a point & shoot, so the HS system does seem to do something. The zoom worked well, even during video, though I wish it were a little wider.

Canon what's going on? another soft focus camera?

Scott, Amazon
5 August 2011
  • Summary: I wanted to give this one a try after the terrible A3300. I have an old Canon sd950 that takes amazing photos but its a bit out dated and the focusing is slow as well as saving. I had hoped that the 230 would work out after trying the A3300, although, I liked its size, ergonomics and features, it...

Upgrade from Canon SD1100 is to SX230 HS

Robert Lee, Amazon
31 July 2011
  • Summary: I'm just an amateur/casual photographer, but a fan of Canon camera. I just got the SX230 HS, and took it around for a quick spin today. It is bigger and heavier than the SD1100.
