4 out of 5 stars   Canon delivers a solid built performer..
By Marc- sushi rules (Escondido CA) December 18, 2010
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX210 IS 14MP 14x Zoom Digital Camera (Black) (CNPSSX210ISK)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Overall build quality, Easy To Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good Image Quality, Great Zoom
Cons: A bit grainy in low light, Pricey
Other Comments: Have the full Canon 5D DSLR with all the fun L lens collection. But, still need that grab, point and shoot camera. This camera allows you to play with the settings while viewing to determine final outcome. Love the'push flash close' to defeat flash. (sure beats the hunt and peck for "no flash" on many point and shoot cameras.The Low Light beats our older Minolta by a mile (okay a little bit of grain-but still great)...

3 out of 5 stars   Decent Camera - but pricey
By Outdoors Crazy (Fort Collins, Co) September 06, 2010
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX210 IS 14MP 14x Zoom Digital Camera (Black) (CNPSSX210ISK)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good in Low Light, Nice Body Color, Great Zoom
Cons: Too Large / Bulky, Poor Image Stabilization
Other Comments: Many reviewers had said the camera's images were great/crisp. Had a Canon 630A and it's picture quality seemed more crisp. Likely the 14X zoom is a bit much for the technology yet given the only adequate image stabilizer. OK photos when keep at Fine resolution (we miss the superfine of the 630A - not present on the 210. Also less softening of image when don't use full zoom ability - keeping it around 8-10X. Good menues, good custom adjustments. Much lighter, easier to deal with, less bulky than the 630A which had 4 AA batteries vs. this one's flat battery. Pop-up flash is a bit annoying but holding it down as turn on the camera so far doesn't seem to bother the camera - can manually raise and depress the flash as needed after it is on. Images look soft/fuzzy when viewed in MS Photo Elements default zoom size on the computer, but are actually more crisp when zoom in. So I guess the softness is more perceptual than actual. Still, its a bit dissapointing given the $300+/- price.

By M&M (NYC, NY) August 21, 2010
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX210 IS 14MP 14x Zoom Digital Camera (Black) (CNPSSX210ISK)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good in Low Light, Nice Body Color, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom
Cons:
Other Comments: First camera I've bought. It is very easy to use and takes great pictures, including action shots. The only real problem is that it takes a while from the moment you press the button until the camera actually takes the picture. Other than that, you can put the camera on auto with just the turn of the little wheel, and the camera will do all the work, you just have to take the picture. Once you get the hang of the camera, you can figure out which settings are best - indoor, landscape, action, etc... I would definitely buy it again.

By Flipflop fantom (Omaha, NE) July 08, 2010
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX210 IS 14MP 14x Zoom Digital Camera (Black) (CNPSSX210ISK)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light
Cons: Long lag time shutter delay
Other Comments: This is the best camera I have ever had. I got it for a Baha'i Pilgrimage to Israel, and it worked very well. It sometimes has a long lag time, apparently due to processing before snapping the shutter (low light, backlighting, etc). To be fair, I used the "Auto" setting since I did not want to take chances on such an important trip. It might have reduced the lag time in some situations to use a different setting. I still need to experiment to see if that makes any difference.

Pros: Short Lag Time, Easy to use, Good in Low Light, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom

Other Comments: With a lot of fun features that are easy to use, this camera is the best. Surprisingly enough, my favorite mode is Manual, because the SX210 makes it so easy to adjust the settings in the manual mode to specify lighting and speed and create a perfect picture with no use of flash and no blurring. I can't wait to take this camera to Colorado!

By Sergio from San Jose (San Jose, Ca) July 05, 2010
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX210 IS 14MP 14x Zoom Digital Camera (Black) (CNPSSX210ISK)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Body Color, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Short Lag Time
Cons: Short Battery Life
Other Comments: My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary with t a trip to Paris and Rome. I did not want to lug around my Nikon D70 with 2 lenses, so after reading a ton of reviews, I ended up purchasing the Canon SX210, because of its high reviews for picture quality. During our 8 day stay in Europe, we took 800 pictures, and distilled 80 for our Picasa photo album. The picture quality, both indoors and outdoors was top notch, with myself and everyone else marvelling at the picture quality. The only complaints that I have, and they are minor, are that (1) batteries will go low after 200 - 300 shots, which can leave you in a lurch if you are in a target rich environment like the Louvre or the Vatican, (2) the SX210 does not have a GPS which would be nice in labelling each picture with its location. Other than these minor quibbles, it was great to have such a quality camera in such a small portable package. My memories are in good hands with this camera.

4 out of 5 stars   Good All Around Pocket Zoom Camera
By Richard (Eureka Springs, AR) May 10, 2010
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX210 IS 14MP 14x Zoom Digital Camera (Black) (CNPSSX210ISK)
Pros: Good color options, Great Zoom, GREAT PICTURE QUALITY, Quick Start Up-Shut Down, Good Image Stabilization, Good battery life
Cons: Popup flash
Other Comments: I bought this camera to replace an older and much bigger super zoom camera. Something that would fit in my pocket, or at least in a slim case on my belt was what I had in mind. This camera is exactly what I wanted. The 14X optical zoom is really handy for long distance shots, while there is a decent wide angle available for landscapes or for small rooms when you are trying to get everyone in the shot. Pictures are usually very sharp and clear, unless you use the digital zoom. But with 14 mega pixels you have plenty of extra pixels for trimming and cropping and still maintain an acceptable or better image. I found that leaving it on Auto works really well, but there is a full manual and everything in between settings for more advanced photographers. You should read the manual and play around with all the settings to get the most out of it. HD video is real easy with one button on the back of the camera to start and stop. The video quality and stereo sound are very good and you can slowly optically zoom in and out while you record. The LCD screen has adjustable brightness and works quite well even outside on a sunny day. And I love the Color Accent feature where you can capture one color and everything else is in black and white. One thing I don't like is the pop up flash, but I usually have my finger over it when I start up the camera and that keeps it from popping up and getting in the way of where your finger naturally wants to hold the camera. The flash works fine, and it will prompt you to raise it when you need it. Another slight annoyance is the zoom button is a little too small, but it works well enough once you get used to it's location. I like a zoom ring around the shutter better than a button. Pictures can be a bit fuzzy looking if you blow them up too much, especially at higher ISO's, but overall it does well enough that you can print a 8 by 10 and not see any problems at ISO 400, The 1600 ISO is usable when you can't get a shot otherwise, but quality and sharpness will suffer. Low light performance is ok, but there can be some noise or fuzziness unless you use the flash, or a tripod/solid surface and a lower ISO setting. The Scene modes have a setting for this, and it works quite well. Overall I am very happy with this camera. It's just about perfect for my needs and it's nice to know that usually you are going to get an above average shot in Auto and not have to fiddle around with the settings and miss a shot. Pricewise it is a bit high, but for your money you get a high quality Made in Japan Canon camera that takes very good to excellent pictures.
