SX200 Replacement - SX230 or SX260?
Aug 7, 2012

My SX200 is starting to show it's age, mainly from a couple drops, and I'm looking for a replacement point-and-shoot. I would like to keep it under $350 total including a spare battery and I've personally had very good experience with Canon (including cameras repaired out of warranty at no cost to me) so I'd like to stick with them.

I was looking at the SX230 and the SX260. As a side by side comparison on this site the SX230 has slightly better overall reviews but just barely and the SX260 is newer by a year with a higher zoom. The other comparison is I can get a SX230 for $220 shipped on Amazon while a SX260 is $300. RAW capabilities aren't a concern (I wouldn't know what to do with them anyway). The only touch up I do is slight sharpening or tinting or red eye removal with Paint.net, nothing fancy.

Anyone have any suggestions?
