If you want to save yourself a few quid. Shop around on line and find yourself the near identical (except for the lens and extra grip) SX230HS, or SX220HS(no GPS). Basically the same camera but with a 14x lens for over £100 less than the SX260.
Also, can someone please let me know if the SX260 still has the same problem where the spot metering setting cannot be saved and has to be manually set every time after switching the camera back on.

Bought this camera having previously owned a Canon A720 IS that I was very happy with. This one not so much. In my experience, there's way too much blur in even not-so-low light. Doesn't matter if I pick the settings myself or let the camera do it.
There also seems to be a problem with the color cast that's especially noticeable with shots taken outdoors in the daytime. Between the 2 problems there doesn't seem to be much this camera does right.
Now I don't claim to know everything about photography but I can take fairly good photos with my T3i and understand how to use manual mode and have a special interest in taking photos of night scenes with available lighting.
I bought this camera mostly to have something small to take hiking. As it is, I'm still toting the dslr around the trails.

I intend to try chdk to see if the added features such as bracketing and RAW support make this camera usable.

I was very impressed with this camera especially with the 20x zoom.
However after just 18 months the shutter has become loose... First time ever I have had a problem like this with a digital camera.
I treat the camera reasonable well. Now I have to take it to the camera repair shop to see if they can help me with it.
I'm waiting for Nikion to match this camera.
