Great camera. Wide variety of features and easy to use.

Summary: Camera technology is at least two years old but a new version of this camera will serve general use photographers and those wishing to use advanced features. Camera is solidly built, great lens but unfortunately does not use AA batteries as did prior generations. It's a fun camera to shoot with but I'd get out of the habit of using completely automatic settings and explore what the camera can do.
Summary: i use it on daily base and i enjoy it very much ,Just one thing disturbs me in this camera and it is like in every other digital camera there is a small delay when a shot is taken. all in all it is a very good camera and i warmly recommend it.
Summary: Saw my brother-in-law's canon SX20 with the extended zoom capabilities so I sold my Nikon camera and bought a Canon SX30. The camera and zoom I really like but miss my Nikon with its rapid fire shutter action.
Summary: Before I bought this camera, I checked on the net a lot of reviews. Well, many of the reviews were right about the pros and cons of this camera. It's not for beginners or people looking for a point-and-shout camera. I used almost all the time in manual mode. And the pics are just great! Of course, between the possibilities. I love to take landscape pics, or in situations were a very good zoom is needed. For low light or very simple pics I use a pocket sized Nikon.
Summary: I've owned this canon for a year now, and I FINALLY got to figure out how to work all the features on it and increase the quality and such. At first I was very disappointed with the blurry and pixely quality but then I realized that my ISO was too high, now I am an amateur photographer who's practicing her photography skills really hard. the zoom on this camera is great! & so is the video quality!...

Summary: I'm somewhat new to this whole digital camera scene, so perhaps mine isn't the review to base your purchase on. I take a lot of photos, however, mainly scenery, family, and pets. I've had this camera for 8 months, and for the most part, it does get the job done. The 'burst,' however (how quickly you can take one picture after shooting the first) is a bit slow. Even with a faster memory card, there is still a 3-5 second delay between shots.
