This is the first Canon I have had in my amateur photography career lasting 45 years. I purchased this camera for the 14+ MP and the 35x lens for a trip to So. Africa. I was not disappointed. I used the "P" shooting mode 95% of the time and rarely shot less than 250mm . This camera delivered beyond my expectations. I got great photos of all the "Big 5" ( lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape Buffalo) and more. I also took a lot of HD video which turned out great. The SX30is is relatively ...

I love that this is a relatively compact camera that extends to a massive zoom.  I don't mind carrying it with me wherever and I can still catch a distant bird on it's perch a hundred times better than with my previous compact cameras.  I really like that it has a button that zooms out while I find the subject and then by letting go, it immediately returns to full zoom. I've dropped this camera a couple of times and it dented the metal on the lens, but it still functions perfectly.  I've used ...

I have one sx30 since 2010 december, it's a great camera.  My wife, who don't know nothing about photograph takes wonderfull photos and has nice images with this device.  I prefer use the manual mode, where I can control the exposure and aperture forms.  She has a Casio, but uses the canon all the time.  The auto mode is perfect for people that dont know how use manual cameras.

I find the camera to be very versatile. With a little noise in low light, this can be overcome by shooting in a custom mode . Buttons are positioned right where they would be confortable for access, though they are sensitive. Excellent pictures!

I own this one as my first camera. it was is good enough for a beginner like me. when I use this camera for first time, i feel dissatisfied with the quality of the picture, but once I'm figure out how to use the right setting for the right time, for example the ISO, the aperture, white balance, use the tripod, this camera always give good result for me. plus, it has lot of features. yeah, of course the quality of the picture was not comparable to DSLR. but it was not too bad, and some shot ...

Of all the Canon cameras (6) compacts and SLRs I have owned this is undoubtedly the most disappointing. This is not a camera you can give to someone in AUTO mode and know that the result will be good. Chances are it will be grainy, especially in lower light conditions. When you shoot in high contrast situations, expect all your straight edges throughout the frame to have green and magenta edges (chromatic aberration.) That said, its light, comfortable, and for its price good bang for the ...

The build quality is worth, the looking is great and the picture quality is also great. 800mm zoom is fantastic for an amateur who would like to spy their neighbors or as I read a review above, to catch 5 Africa Animals! You will love it as I did before you want to upgrade your photograph experience with a DSLR ! Problems: I cannot find a problems here, as a compact camera point of view !
