The roster of new compact megazooms for spring 2010 is very impressive with all the major manufacturers coming out with hot new cameras. I waited to read the reviews from the earliest adopters (thanks all of you) before picking this Canon. The raw statistics were themselves impressive. The 14x zoom and 14 MP live up to the hype. I was super-impressed with how well I could "pull in" subjects across the field. But the other features of the camera make it a truly tremendous little package. And it is indeed little. It fit very comfortably in a cargo pant side pocket. Light and small. The dedicated video button is a great idea and made me more likely to shift to video than I would have been without it. Also, I love the old style mode dial. Much more convenient and easy to use than a menu driven system. That being said, the menus and the navigation dial are very well put together and easy to navigate. I love having manual focus, Aperture, Shutter, and Program settings like on an old camera, and I was thrilled to see that the changes in settings showed up on the LCD to simulate what the shot would look like. Super cool for an amateur photographer and will help me take better pictures in the future. The shutter speed is fast but still not SLR fast. The lag between shots is less than my previous camera but still not perfect. I like that you can shift back to the shooting screen before the previous image is finished writing to disk. Very strong low light performance. I was really surprised at how well it did in pub lit mainly by Christmas lights. I got very balanced shots when every other camera at the table was producing nothing worth keeping. I have not had much luck with the continuous shooting modes yet. I'll need to do a little homework to understand why those are not working for me. Also, I have not had success with shooting fast moving objects. The kids and pets mode was not fast enough for the zoo and I could not "outsmart" it with any of the manual settings. Finally, battery life is a point of concern. On my first long day of shooting, the battery signaled it was getting low before evening. I have ordered a backup battery to be sure that I won't run out of juice on a whole day away from home. I would have expected the battery to last a whole day no problem. Overall, I couldn't be happier. As long as battery life does not become a problem, it is a complete package and well worth the price in comparison to the other brands.

Had the camera for about a month. I kept noticing a shadow at the bottom right of my photos. Turns out, when the lens is zoomed-out (so no zoom usage whatsoever), the lens is blocking part of the flash - hence, the shadow. There is an easy way around it - just zoom in a little. That being the case, I couldn't keep the camera because what if I forget to do so. Loved that it has a 14x optical zoom. The settings are self-explanatory. Wish the flash didn't popup since my finger's used to being there - but at least Canon thought ahead and allowed for the flash to be manually turned on/off (by lifting the flash up or down). One other thing - it's 3inch LCD yet when taking pictures, it's not being used to it's maximum capacity, hence the 2 black bars to the left and right of it. What's the point? I guess for video only? Overall I was content with the camera - minus the design flash/lens shadow issue, which to me, is a big deal. Waited months for this camera and now I have to keep searching for the one that fits my needs...

Pros

  • can be difficult to change setting quickly

  • shuts itself off frequently at bad times

    Comments about Canon PowerShot SX210 IS Black 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

    This camera is larger & heavier than my previous cameras & I was very surprised by this when I received it. It's more difficult to change settings & to see the desired setting on the wheel due to extremely small writing & small controls. Difficult to hold steady with the auto pop up flash position. I haven't learned if it's possible to change the size of pixels it uses yet. It takes wonderful, clear pictures & movies. I really like being able to zoom while taking the movie. All in all it's another super Canon Camera!

      Comments about Canon PowerShot SX210 IS Black 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

      While traveling overseas I dropped my Cannon G-7 and the lens jammed and would not retract. I still had 2 weeks to go on my trip and could not be without a camera so went into a camera shop in Edinburgh to see if they could possibly fix it. Unfortunately they advised me I would have to send it in. So I looked at what replacements were available and after a recommendation by the clerk I purchased this camera. I have been very pleased with it's performance, ease of use, low light pictures, and how portable it is. The price was great too. I liked my G-7 but this camera is a strong competitor as far as I am concerned.

        I have been extremely disappointed with the quality of the pictures I have taken. I have an older digital camera that takes great pictures but I wanted to upgrade from a 4 times zoom to the 14 times zoom with the Canon. The quality of the pictures taken indoors at concert events are no where near as good a s my older camera. Many pictures are not clear as they should be and trust me I'm no beginner at taking photos. Pictures are dark, fuzzy and poor quality. I even had other people attempt to use the camera and they said that no way would they buy this camera. I just can't recommend this camera

          Comments about Canon PowerShot SX210 IS Black 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

          I purchased this camera in the Spring and on the first day I used it noticed a problem with dust getting on the lens and inside the lens. Withing two months, dust and hair actually got inside the camera causing for significant quality issues. For the price of this camera, this should not be happening. Even worse, there is no way to fix this. I have used an air gun to try to loosen these particles, blown inside the camera, etc., and nothing works. You will see that the lens has a gap between the metal casing and the lens. Dust enters into the camera around all sides. There is no way to clean the inside of the camera. Otherwise, this camera could be great. Picture quality is fantastic and video quality was great when there was not this dust problem. Verdict: don't buy this camera.

              Image quality is amazing! I can work with apertur and shutter speed like a non digital camera. It's portable and easy to use. One thing I will say is the flash lense is the only thing that sticks out from the camera. if I would to ever drop it, it would probably be the first thing to break on my camera.

                  I bought this camera after my older canon finally bit the dust. Carried my old one in my saddlebag for well over 2000 miles of riding everywhere in the USA and took 1000's and 1000's of pictures. I was sold on canon! So far with this one, I have taken it everywhere in Israel and Egypt and taken 100's of shots of grandchildren. It has never failed me. I love the high zoom and get some great shots from far away that I never thought would come out so clear. I was a little worried about the placement of the flash because I always seem to have my finger in the wrong place when I turn on the camera but MOST of the time I do not need it. This is such a great low light camera, I normally get a great shot without the flash. The majority of the time I have just used the easy setting and get sharp beautiful shots. The clips of video also come out crisp and clear. I am very happy with this camera!!

                    I would highly recommend this camea. I have enjoyed it to the fulliest. I took on the road all in cold tempatures and it took very good pictures in the snow, in the dark and in the rain the pictures still come out clear. I am often taking pictures without the flash and they come out well in doors. I took pictures while driving and they came out perfect. I love this and you can't tell I was driving nor that I was behind the windsheild of a 18 wheeler or my personal suv. I have taken some awesome pictures from a distance and it look as I was directly up on the subject. I have no cons other than the batteries don't last long but this is ok. This is a duriable camera. Trust me it is all that I am saying it is. I keep it with me at all times in my purse. I have taken clear picutures from inside a building of something outside and you can not tell the difference. I like to take nature pictures and they come out well even for and amature.

                      Compared to the camera I had used on previous world adventures this one was great. Easy to use, light weight. Love the 14x zoom. Best to date camera with the one exception of short battery life. Fortunately, I took a spare with me. Each charge only got me about 1-3 hours of use,,, hard to feel good about an 8 to 10 hours of sightseeing and adventure half way around the world and having to be stingy with the pic taking to make it through the day. Would not be good in areas without daily recharge opportunities.

                        Overall I really like this camera. I like to take my camera with me everywhere, so this camera usually ends up in my pocket or in a bag. It takes beautiful shots and pretty good video. I've been using this camera for about a year. Now for the huge flaw I've found. The camera will easily fill with dirt, hair, and dust. Since the lens will zoom a great distance this allows dust to work its way inside the camera. I even have hair inside the lens. I believe this is from the movement of the lenses while zooming in and out. There are 3 parts that move and they seem to pull dirt into the camera - making it impossible to prevent this problem. If I thought it were worth my time to have the inside of the lenses cleaned every couple of months or so, I'd keep this camera. You may have better luck if you keep this camera in a camera bag and out of dusty environments (do NOT store in a pocket). Right now I'm looking for a comparable replacement. This camera takes excellent pictures when the dust inside the camera is not reflecting natural light.

                            Great little camera. Shoots clear pictures and has a great zoom. Easy to fit in a pocket or purse and handy to carry around.
