Vacation Camera Multi-Tasker - Canon PowerShot SX230 HS Review

5 Oct 2011

As you shop for a new digital camera, think about getting one camera that does several things well. This Canon PowerShot SX230 HS Review is about a camera that is at the top of its class as a travel camera, but it is an excellent family camera as well.

Great Vacation Camera

The new GPS feature is brand new to this model, giving it the unique capability to have the camera software record exactly where you are at each press of the shutter button. In people talk, that means that when you look back at your photos, you will know if you were at the Louvre in Paris or the Minneapolis Museum of Art without having to rack your brain to remember.

The 14X zoom is another “travel feature” that you will find very helpful while on holiday. If you find yourself unable to physically get close to the object of your photo, you can do it with the zoom lens.

Video is now pretty much a given when it comes to buying a new digital camera, and this one has a fantastic video package. It can take full 1080p video, meaning it compares equally or better with any other point-and-shoot camera.

The PowerShot SX230 HS As A Family Camera

There are some things that make this little gem a good choice as your go-to family photo maker, too. The first and foremost benefit that you should look for in a family camera is the image quality. Experts have rated this PowerShot model quite highly in that regard, but the proof is in the using. Online reviews at several online stores reveal that the buyers of this particular model have been extremely happy with the image quality.

Continuous shooting is another feature that can help you get the shot almost every time. At 3.2 frames per second, you will be able to take multiple shots of an event, such as Missy’s first steps or Junior’s shot on goal at the soccer game. This is how the pros do it so they can select the best of several pictures.

Of course, as already mentioned, the video feature is something that all families are now looking for in their next camera purchase. This one will not disappoint.
