Canon PowerShot S2 IS Video
A nice evolution of the megazoom, the Canon PowerShot SX10 IS delivers some improvements over its predecessor and provides an attractive option for megazoom shooters.
For most people, the excellent photo quality of the Canon PowerShot SD790 IS will more than make up for any slight performance deficiencies or minor shortcomings.
The budget-friendly Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a solid compact megazoom for those that prize creative control and photo quality more than fast shooting performance or a small, lightweight design.
The Canon PowerShot SX30 IS is a point-and-shoot camera with a 35x zoom lens. As long as you're not expecting much more than that, it's a very good megazoom.
Though it's certainly a good, inexpensive megazoom camera, some aspects of the Canon PowerShot SX110 IS fall a bit short of its predecessor.
The Canon PowerShot A610 puts a great feature set in an affordable camera that produces above-average image quality, making it an excellent option for a wide variety of photographers.
The Canon PowerShot SD750 has an attractive design, a large LCD, and excellent photo quality for an ultracompact digital camera.
The Canon PowerShot SX1 IS offers a 20x zoom lens and HD video, which you can't get in a similarly priced dSLR, and delivers more features and slightly better performance and photo quality than the cheaper SX10 IS.
Though the Canon PowerShot SX100 IS produces excellent photos, other aspects of the camera--some performance issues and operational annoyances, to name two--dim its luster.
If you're after a wide and long lens and excellent photo quality, the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS is a standout. In features, design, and performance, though, it's a bit lacking.
