Canon PowerShot SX210 IS

 

The megapixel race is back on with a vengeance, with this 14 megapixel long-zoom camera from Canon

Manual controls, 14x zoom lens (28 - 392mm), HD video with stereo sound, All-metal body

Generally soft images, Fiddly zoom control, Too high resolution for size

Canon PowerShot SX210 IS review

 

Canon's latest PowerShot is a small compact with a whopping 14x optical zoom. Is it king of the super-zoomers?

A tiny camera with huge zoom. Not the most exciting compact otherwise, though

Canon PowerShot SX210 IS camera

 

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS comes in to replace the SX200 IS, competing against the likes of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8 , in offering a wealth of creative control and a lot of zoom in a relatively compact camera. It's the sort of camera aimed at...

Fun shooting options, 14x zoom, design, HDMI

Flash, some options hard to find, ISO noise can be a problem

Overall the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a versatile camera offering the advantages of a wide zoom range in a compact body. The shooting options presented are equally wide ranging, from the Easy Mode which is ideal for children, through Smart Auto,...

Canon PowerShot SX210 review

 

One of the best compact cameras of the year so far

Compact ; Well-built ; Great image quality

Costs as much as a DSLR ; Weird aspect ratio on monitor

Canon's PowerShot range can be confusing.

Canon PowerShot SX210 IS review

 

Improvements found in the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS include a slimmer frame, the ability to zoom while shooting video, support for SDXC cards, and new scene modes.

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is the rare camera that's sure to please a variety of users, making this pocket megazoom a solid recommendation for any camera shopper. It's a more-conservative buy than the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V, but it's still a fun...

A smart, capable camera, but corner focus problems takes the shine of its otherwise impressive photos

Canon Powershot SX210 review

 

A long zoom in a little body seems to be the big goal for camera manufacturers in 2010. The 14-megapixel PowerShot SX210 IS is Canon's entry; it's the company's most compact megazoom camera sporting a 28mm-equivalent wide-angle lens with a 14x zoom. It...

Nice selection of semimanual and manual controls; flexible lens in a compact body; very good photo quality.

Slow shooting performance; some awkward design aspects; unimpressive LCD.

If you want a compact megazoom with manual controls and fine photo quality, the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a good place to start.

Canon PowerShot SX210 IS review

 

Elias Plastiras checks out a pocket snapper with a large lens and a wealth of manual features.

We like the fact that the shutter and aperture controls can be easily changed when in manual mode. If the PowerShot SX210’s features appeal to your specification wishlist, don't let the design dissuade you from considering it.

Canon PowerShot SX210 IS review

 

The PowerShot SX210 IS is aimed at users who demand a considerable amount from a point-and-shoot camera; featuring a 14.1-megapixel CCD sensor, a 14x zoom lens and many manual controls.

14x zoom lens, f/3.1 aperture, manual settings; good depth of field

Lots of design quirks with menu controls; soft images
