SX230 (or SX210) vs. S95 (or S90)
Feb 10, 2011

Looking to replace my dying cheap S410, which to me was a pretty inadequate camera. I mostly use a DSLR with L lenses, but I like having a nice P&S around for quick shots. Basically, my question is, how much will I regret the lesser quality of use with the SX210/230 type camera in exchange for getting the longer zoom. I take mostly outdoor sports/candid shots, but really just want a great camera to put in my pocket for those times I don't want to lug around the SLR (or have an extra camera in the pocket in addition to it).

I like a quick, responsive camera with good glass, but wondering if the 3.8x zoom will be a limitation? How much quality am I giving up with the SX series?

Thanks for any help.

Mark
