Summary: I am very happy with the powershot sx230. The picture quality is excellent and there is a waterproof housing available for this camera from canon. The reason i bought it was because it takes an unlimited amount of continuous pictures at 3mp which is great for taking pics at the skatepark or taking any action shots. Not a great review but i hope it helps. I love this camera, canon is great!
Pros: Extraordinary photo and video quality for a point and shoot. Solid build quality and shock resistance. Incredible optical zoom (way longer reach than one might think) Comparable detail to our T3i SLR
Cons: Flash is definitely in the worst possible place. Nothing else.
