Great camera. Wide variety of features and easy to use.
4 September 2012
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.
Summary: I purchased the Canon AX30 to replace a Canon Rebel DSLR. I did not pay attention to the clearly identified 'point & shoot'description. This is exactly as advertised. I prefer faster, less noisy photos, so I will be getting a new DSLR soon.
Summary: Wanted to upgrade from my Canon SX110 but did not want the weight and hassle of a DSLR - this fits the bill perfectly. Love the zoom. Image stabilisation is great with the zoom. Picture quality has some noise that I have noticed but have been able to reduce some with changing settings.
Summary: This 4 star review should probably be a 4.5 star. After 5 years good experience with Canon S3 IS, this camera is a vast upgrade. I would recommend buying this model if you are just a hobby photographer such as myself since it is probably as good as it gets for a point and shoot camera.
Summary: To start with, you would definitely have to call me a novice. I'm the typical "Dad" and I take your basic little family type pictures and videos, but I was looking for something that would go just a little further than that. I wanted something that took a good quality picture.
Summary: Best Point and Shoot with Mega Zoom. I owned Canon Rebel T1i DSLR, considered Panasonic DMC-FZ40, bought, used and returned Nikon P500 and Fuji Finepix S4000. So, I will give my take on Canon SX30IS from this perspective.
Summary: Some people really had HUGE problems with my last review as I had asked a question to Amazon buyers instead of writing an actual review.Well,I am sorry about that...and here is an actual review: Pros: Excellent image stabilization: this is very very helpful when you are trying to take a photo while...
Summary: I love the zoom capability! I have had a Canon 20D and a 40D the a G10 I have been trying to go back too point in shoots. simply because I am tired of dealing with all the equipment. I am trying to find my perfect camera. this is close so far. having 24mm-840mm in one lens is amazing.
