Happier Than I Expected!!
I used a Canon Power Shot A1000 IS for almost five years and love Canon quality. What I love about this new Canon is how user friendly it is. So simple, and I very quickly was able to load the software, register on line and send pictures to my computer, on line social media and iPhone with the Wi-Fi ability. Going from picture to movie mode is the push of a button. Has great options for an amateur photographer like me. You can also purchase a tripod separately.
Built-in Wifi and GPS via a smartphone
The IXUS 255 HS / ELPH 330 HS is positioned in the middle in the IXUS / ELPH range and provides a good balance between features and performance on the one hand and price on the other. It outclasses the 16.1 Megapixel CCD sensor-based entry-level IXUS / ELPH models in every way, sporting better image quality and noise performance, a wider range of shooting modes, Full HD video, a longer zoom and a better quality screen.
Good image quality versus competitors
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS is a little camera that will provide quite a few pleasant surprises. Those expecting the most basic type of point and shoot model will appreciate a camera that performs faster than other beginner-level cameras, while also providing greater image quality.
Compact, svelte design
For non-smartphone users or those who want a dedicated camera that's easy to carry around and shoots good photos - perhaps at a party or on vacation - the 330 HS is a good option, albeit a bit pricey. But, looking into the future, with smartphones now accounting for more than half of cell phone users and continuing to rise, good cameras like the 300 HS won't be good enough next year - smartphones will be the new point-and-shoot.
Very good photo quality for the compact ultra zoom category
The PowerShot SX260 HS is a solid choice for those looking for a travel zoom camera. It's not particularly fast (especially in the AF department), nor is it loaded with bells and whistles like landmark databases. The bottom line is that the SX260 gets the job done in nearly all situations, and produces photos of higher quality than competitive models.
Effective built-in GPS system
Despite looking outwardly similar to its predecessor, the PowerShot SX260 HS represents a big step forward for Canon's travel-zoom cameras and is a real challenger to Panasonic's TZ30 model. Anyone looking for a pocket camera that can shoot high quality stills and video both near and far should seriously consider the exciting new Canon PowerShot SX260 HS.
Very good photo quality for the compact ultra zoom category
The Canon PowerShot SX260 is a travel zoom camera that packs a 20X zoom lens into a compact and stylish package. The lens is probably the highlight of the camera, with an impressive range of 25 - 500 mm. As with other cameras in this class, the lens is on the slow side, especially at full telephoto. Naturally, the SX260 has an optical image stabilization system, complete with a dynamic mode for movies and powered mode for telephoto shots.
Great image quality, Excellent zoom range
The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS is a superzoom that offers a good balance of features and produces still images and HD movies that are very pleasing.
It might lack some of the bells and whistles of other travel compacts - such as the Panasonic TZ30's touchscreen or the Samsung WB750's Live Panorama mode - but it delivers where it really matters: in picture quality and manual control.
Huge zoom range offers plenty of flexibility
The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS delivers the flexibility of a 20x optical zoom in an easy-to-carry compact sized package. As such it's a very likeable and easy-to-use travel compact that delivers good results and shows several notable improvements over the model it replaces, not least a longer zoom range and a much needed finger grip.
20x optical zoom lens in a compact camera
The Canon Powershot SX260 HS offers a lot of optical zoom in a compact camera body and has a number of features that the traveller will find appealing including GPS with GPS logging. Full HD video is available with stereo sound and optical zoom as well as high speed video modes and the camera's movie digest mode is a good way to record both videos and photos.
Image quality is among the best you'll find in such a camera
The SX260 HS is small, well designed and, for point and shoot snappers, performs a treat too. But in such a hotly contested market place it could do with that little bit more oomph to really take it to the next level: we'd like to see a touchscreen with edge-to-edge focus control in the future.
But image quality is among the best you'll find in such a camera.
Good images and video
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 520 HS is a fine camera. Its small size makes it very convenient to carry around and its powerful zoom provides the user with tremendous versatility. It's a quick performer, for the most part, though its shot-to-shot speed could be faster, especially when the flash is utilized. It produces sharp, colorful, low distortion images throughout the frame at all focal lengths, including in low light.
Stylish metal body, High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor
The Canon IXUS 500 HS is a good attempt to marry the classic styling of the IXUS range with a big zoom lens, but the tiny controls, poor battery life, so-so image quality at high ISO speeds and the eye-watering price-tag detract somewhat from its overall appeal.
Optical zoom while movie recording
The ELPH 520 HS / IXUS 500 HS is truly a marvel of miniaturisation. If you're looking for a pocket zoom that really is pocketable you be hard pressed to find a model that matches it for size, weight and classy good looks. The quality is more than skin deep, it's beautifully engineered and feels like a quality product.
Stunning design, Well-specified, Impressive LCD screen
The Canon IXUS 500 HS is a compact camera that impresses at first sight. Not only is the model one of the most stylish currently on the market, but it also features a weighty specification to match its eye-catching looks. The combination of 10.1MP CMOS sensor, Canon's HS technology, DIGIC 5 processor and 12x optical zoom results in both excellent image quality and a versatility up there with more advanced compacts.
Outstanding image quality versus similarly priced cameras
Canon has always had specific market segments for its cameras. Its Rebel line of DSLR cameras is aimed at beginning and intermediate photographers. The company also has several high-end DSLR cameras aimed at professionals.
Then there are budget-priced PowerShot models, usually costing less than $200. These cameras typically have very limited features and performance levels.
Good-looking and super portable
The Elph 520 HS is a hard sell. Looking at only the specifications, you might not see enough of an upgrade here to justify the purchase. But once itÃ¢Â? Â? s actually in your hands, you can see where it proves its worth. The button navigation gets rid of the touchscreen interface (overrated, in my opinion) and makes handling more in your control.
Solid overall image quality
The Canon ELPH series is usually a safe bet for a cool, quality camera at a decent price, but the top end of the lineup has been pretty wonky over the past few years. Image quality is generally strong, and the lenses are either bright or packed with zoom. But Canon insists on sticking them with a crummy touchscreen, which royally screws up the user experience and drives up the price. Such is the case with the latest ELPH king, the ELPH 530 HS.
Very high dynamic range
The Canon IXUS 510 HS is a camera that will look good in the hands of someone who desires appearance over performance. It's a camera that will attract admiring glances so someone who covets attention will be perfectly suited to the IXUS 510 HS. If you want a small camera that can take the picture of a fly sat on your safari jeep before switching to a distant elephant on the Serengeti plains without the distraction of having to walk anywhere, then this camera is perfect for you.
Good looks, Excellent image quality
Build and image quality are both more than up to par, leaving you only with the unpleasant task of actually paying for the Canon IXUS 510 HS.
At around £350 (about $550), it's expensive for a compact camera; in fact, it's actually a little more than Canon's cheapest DSLR, the Canon EOS 1100D, is currently selling for in some places, albeit without a lens.
Pocket camera that can shoot high quality stills and video
Despite looking outwardly similar to its predecessor, the PowerShot SX240 HS represents a big step forward for Canon's travel-zoom cameras and is a real challenger to Panasonic's TZ30 and TZ25 models. Anyone looking for a pocket camera that can shoot high quality stills and video both near and far should seriously consider the exciting new Canon PowerShot SX240 HS.
Good image quality - good detail and colour
The Canon Powershot SX240 HS offers a lot of optical zoom in a compact camera body and has a number of features that the traveller will find appealing, although if you're after GPS you'll need to look at the Canon Powershot SX260 HS. Full HD video is available with stereo sound and optical zoom as well as high speed video modes and the camera's movie digest mode is a good way to record both videos and photos.
20x optical zoom, Good HD video output
Canon Powershot SX240HS is a wonderful travel zoom camera offering 20x optical zoom. Itâ?? s quite an improvement over the SX220HS sporting a better image processor, thereby giving more detail in the images. The HD video recording mode is quite good offering better noise control in both indoor and outdoor conditions over the SX220HS. Quite feature-rich for the newbies as well as amateur users. We just felt the pricing at Rs. 19,995 was a bit on the higher side despite the free 4GB SD card.
Excellent optics and build quality
The Canon IXUS 1100 HS's design is blocky, yet futuristic and typically IXUS in its execution. If we were to improve anything, we'd either upgrade the zoom rocker to metal or remove it altogether. The massive screen on the back looks like a cinema screen it's that wide, but surprisingly, it's not the widest on the market.
Super-slim stylish compact design
The Canon ELPH 510 HS / IXUS 1100 HS is the flagship model in the 2011 ELPH / IXUS range. Its headline features are a 12x zoom lens supported by Canon's new Intelligent IS image stabilisation and a 3.2 inch touch screen. Canon announced the ELPH 510 HS / IXUS 1100 HS as the world's slimmest 12x zoom camera and it's an extremely compelling option if you're looking for good telephoto reach in a smaller, simpler and more stylish format than is offered by compact superzooms like Sony's HX9V or...
Versatile lens, nice feature set and effective image stabilization
The ELPH 510 HS is a good-value, versatile camera that is capable of producing nice images. For basic point-and-shoot operation it is a perfectly pleasant companion (and the zoom range is great), but the laggy, unprecise touchscreen makes getting to grips with its feature set much less enjoyable than it should be.
Produces excellent images
The IXUS 1100 HS has a wide-range of features, with full HD video recording and is really well built with a metal body and 3.2 inch LCD touch screen. The camera produces a decent image and you can get really close into the action with the 12x optical zoom lens which is packed into the small body. The camera is priced quite highly and the battery life is quite short at just 170 shots. Overall, if your budget can stretch to the price, the Canon IXUS 1100 HS comes recommended.
Only for serious picture takers
 Canon makes some of the best Cameras if not the best. You get a lot of the DSLR technology compacted into this little thing .
 If this camera had a F2 Aperture like the Canon S95, it would be Canon's best point and shoot camera released to date, but there's a trade off when you want zoom. Both cameras are neck and neck in my book with the S95 edging it out by a hair because of the F2 .
 The biggest difference between the SX230 and SX220 (UK) is the GPS.
Avant grade performer, low light champion.
Conclusion: I would recommend this camera to all of you who are not satisfied with the image quality of your camera and are looking for a camera which gives nice indoor image quality, specially under low lights. I am using this camera for almost a month now and I am loving it and also bought a hard case for it this time :) remember...
Long zoom in a pocketable camera
Overall the Canon PowerShot SX220 HS is a worthy successor to the SX210 IS that we liked last year. The range of options on offer makes it a camera that will perform for those who just want a point and shoot and those that want the benefit of a long zoom in a pocketable camera. The effects and manual options provide versatility, so you're not restricted by a camera that's too simple. .
A wide-aspect 3.0-inch LCD, manual exposure modes, and a bold 14x wide angle zoom lens are packed into a slim, and (in our case) unabashedly purple camera body.
The PowerShot SX210 marks a slight redesign of the SX compact ultrazoom series. It has a lean form factor and a fairly reliable 14x zoom lens.
The Canon PowerShot SX210 is an expensive camera but it does offer more genuinely useful features than almost anything else in its class. Build quality and handling are excellent, overall performance is superb and the picture quality is better than expected for such a densely populated sensor. The only image quality issues are caused by the lens, which may just be a zoom factor too far.
14x zoom lens.
The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS has lots of design quirks, but its small body packs in a versatile range of features. It includes a 14x zoom lens, an f/3.1 lens and the ability to control the exposure manually, and you can also shoot video at 720p. Its overall image quality is good, albeit soft, but it's a fine compact shooter to have at your disposal for everyday snaps and is an ideal size to take with you while travelling.
Good image quality
A 14.2MP camera with a long 14x zoom lens from Canon has healthy list of features for a compact zoom camera including a full set of auto and manual controls and a large 3-inch LCD screen. It also records 710p HD movie and it performs well for still photos than moving subjects. It's price is a bit on the higher side and it's performance is a little slow.
clear and vibrant images
Canon's PowerShot SX200 IS is a very good camera with plenty of features for everyone: novices will make good use of the easy mode, while experienced photographers will appreciate the manual features. It's a comfortable camera to hold and it has the ability to take some good looking shots — even in dim light.
sharp, crisp image
Canon's budget advanced compact is a major architectural departure from last year's PowerShot SX110 IS. The Canon PowerShot SX200 IS sports a 28mm wide-angle lens, 12x optical zoom and packs in 12-megapixels. But can the PowerShot SX200 IS handle 12-megapixels? We weren't blown away by the PowerShot SX200 IS's image performance compared to the PowerShot SX110 IS's, and actually preferred the previous generation PowerShot in most bright light shooting environments.
Takes HD video clips.
The Canon PowerShot SX200 IS is a very good choice for an all-around digicamâ??even for people who donâ??t travel that much. It takes fine people shots, works simply in smart auto, offers plenty of scene modes, and even lets you tweak manual adjustments. Definitely keep the ISO at 400 and lower; do that and youâ??ll have a fine camera thatâ??ll last for years, a good selling point in these tough times.
The Canon PowerShot SX200 IS Digital Camera offers just about everything consumers need in a camera, with the exception of battery life. One of the most common complaints is that while the performance and features impress, the battery life does not. Needless to say, whether you are an amateur or a professional, you will find enjoyment and satisfaction in using this camera. It is solid, sturdy, and fairly compact, which is great for home users.
