  • Excerpt: I love that this is a relatively compact camera that extends to a massive zoom.  I don't mind carrying it with me wherever and I can still catch a distant bird on it's perch a hundred times better than with my previous compact cameras.  I really like that it has a button that zooms out while I find the subject and then by letting go, it immediately returns to full zoom.

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.

  • Excerpt: I own this one as my first camera. it was is good enough for a beginner like me. when I use this camera for first time, i feel dissatisfied with the quality of the picture, but once I'm figure out how to use the right setting for the right time, for example the ISO, the aperture, white balance, use the tripod, this camera always give good result for me. plus, it has lot of features. yeah, of course the quality of the picture was not comparable to DSLR.

Great zoom, light weight, point & shoot

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: This is the first Canon I have had in my amateur photography career lasting 45 years. I purchased this camera for the 14+ MP and the 35x lens for a trip to So. Africa. I was not disappointed. I used the "P" shooting mode 95% of the time and rarely shot less than 250mm . This camera delivered beyond my expectations. I got great photos of all the "Big 5" ( lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape Buffalo) and more. I also took a lot of HD video which turned out great.

Great bridge camera.

  • 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. Little on the high side price wise but overall worth it. Looking forward to experimenting more with this camera.
