Great post! I agree with your thinking, and the pictures back it up.

i still think that the IQ of the sx220/230 is the best in comparison with the other compact superzoom cameras.

Altought you don't get the best results in Auto, i use always the camera in "P" with the following options:

  • iContrast off

  • saturation +1

  • sharpness +1

  • IS single shot (to save battery life)

for a very few euros i also bought a Phottix nb-5l spare battery and it last more than original (tested with continuos full hd video clips).

comparison shots, crop 1:1
ISO100

SONY HX20V

PANASONIC TZ30

CANON SX260

CANON SX230

PANASONIC TZ25
