  • Excerpt: My old Canon Powershot 620 died last year when I dropped it. :-( As it was quite an old camera, I expected a newer model would work a good deal better. I've had the camera for about two weeks and haven't quite mastered all the bells and whistles. But so far I've been quite pleased with it. a) Things I liked: The camera is quite light and compact. I liked the 20X zoom. And even at 20X, in good lighting the pictures are sharp.

  • Summary: Disappointed they didn't even include a connection cable or instruction manual. When i called to enquire you were very rude as if it was ridiculous for me to expect otherwise. Trying to look up instructions online when I have access. Not convenient .

A waste of money

  • Summary: I bought this camera at the end of 2013 and was extremely pleased with all the features, ease of use, etc. I found the battery lifespan to be on the short side, but had purchased a back-up battery, so wasn't too bothered.

Fantastic camera with a few gremlins

  • Summary: A great camera that takes truly stunning shots, especially once you master the manual controls. Instead of doing what everyone does and list what's good, I'm going to list a few issues I have with this camera: Battery life is appalling; there's no other word to describe it. I frequently record footage, and the battery dies after 20 minutes of recording. You'll be lucky to get 50 photos out of it, too. My camera microphones came with an almighty hiss right from day 1.

  • Summary: I agree with the other comments. It takes great pictures when the battery is working but what is the point if the battery life is pathetic.

  • Summary: Well here you are looking for a new camera and wanting to find out more about the Canon SX270HS, should you buy one ?, in short; yes, but only if you want great photographs and never use the video mode. If you want to know more read on; First a History lesson; No Canon camera has ever appealed to me and unsurprisingly I've never owned one either, I've never rated them and hate the alien PASM mode (tv & av?
