PhotographyBLOG has reviewed the Canon PowerShot SX230 HS travel-zoom camera. This compact digicam features a 12.1-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, a 3-inch LCD screen, the DIGIC 4 image processing engine, a full 1080p HD movie mode with Stereo sound and an HDMI output. Additional specs include a built-in GPS, a full range of manual exposure modes for more experienced photographers looking to take control, an 8.1 fps burst shooting at 3-megapixel resolution and a Super Slow Motion Movie mode. Here is the conclusion:
The new Canon PowerShot SX230 HS is a more sensibly priced and better-specced challenger to the market-leading Panasonic TZ-series, going head to head with the TZ20, which it actually betters on paper in quite a few aspects. Judged on its own merits, the Canon PowerShot SX230 HS is an easy recommendation as a travel zoom camera that does it all with the minimum of fuss.
Available in pink, blue or black, the Canon PowerShot SX230 is priced at £299 or approx. $350. [PhotographyBLOG]
