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: 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 was ready to replace my Canon A630 with something a little more up to date, and this filled the bill. Admitedly, my familiarity with Canon made the learning curve short. The one thing I was looking for was a longer zoom.
Summary: My daughter bought this camera specifically for going to concerts. The quality of the video and photos she takes with this camera are awesome. Even when she is far away from the stage, she is able to zoom in and get really good quality shots.
Summary: I really like my new Canon powershot SX260. Pros: The zoom is just amazing; accessories are good; tried the video in full HD and its great; camera modes are good; Cons: Little heavy; felt the battery drained out fast when I used the video mode; didn't know how to use GPS; Overall its a great camera...
Excerpt: I am amazed at how much Canon has packed into this small package. Camera itself works fine and has a spectacular zoom range. GPS is reasonably quick to lock in. I am reaching the 2 yr mark with this camera and have no significant complaints. This is the camera that is ALWAYS with me.
