Patricia, Newport Pagnell Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Its extremely easy to use, all functions are easy to follow, its just so easy to get to know your camera, it has a few extra functions that my XS200 dos'nt have which makes going from framed pictures to moving pictures without having to change.
Bad points:
On and off button a bit to small or in the wrong place, if you have long nails or big fingers its a bit of a struggle to turn it on, but thats all.

Paul, Manchester Keen amateur

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Great zoom,nice and compact, lots of features, looks great. Fantastic screen.
Bad points:
Badly positioned flash, could not hold camera comfortably. Over vivid colours. Zoom kept locking on to the wrong subject whilst on long zoom. Very cheap covers for cable connection and battery. A lot of features are in sub, sub menus, frustrating when you want to point and shoot quickly.

Janet, Leicester Point & shoot

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This is an easy to use camera which gives good results in even quite poor light. Excellent focusing system.
Bad points:
Although the screen is large, the image does not fill the screen so it might as well be smaller (I ordered it for the bigger screen!) I also feel that this camera needs a viewfinder - used in bright light, it's quite difficult to see the screen.

Powerful and user friendly, the smart Canon PowerShot SX 210 IS boasts a staggering array of features for such an affordable price. This sleek digital compact camera combines the power of 14.1 megapixels with a sensational zoom, high definition (HD) movie mode and the ability to have complete creative control over your images – and it’s one of the cheapest and best of its kind on the market, with no compromise on quality.

Superbly detailed images can be enlarged to large sizes without any reduction in image quality, thanks to its 14.1 megapixel sensor.

In addition to the powerful 14x zoom lens, which brings distant subjects into clear view, the compact body of the Power-shot SX210 IS houses Canon’s fast-acting DIGIC 4 processor which supports a wide range of ultra-handy photographic functions to make taking great pictures easy.

For example, the SX 210 has Smart Auto to choose optimal camera settings by matching what it sees in the frame to one of 22 different scene types. While Easy mode gives the option of truly fuss-free point-and-shoot, more experienced users can set it to Full Manual control mode and take creative control over their photography. Fish-eye effect is an added feature on this versatile compact digital camera.

The SX-210 also boasts optical image stabilisation to combat the camera-shake which can cause image blurring, particularly at high zoom.

If it’s perfect pictures of friends, family and loved ones you want, the super smart Face Detection Technology adjusts the settings and focus to deliver perfect group shots. The ingenious Smart Shutter mode lets you trigger the shot remotely by either winking, smiling, or when a new face enters the frame!

You can shoot clear, bright images in dim conditions thanks to the built-in i-Contrast feature, which reproduces the details in areas of highlight and shadow to give a truer view of what the human eye can see.

The Power Shot SX-210 features a large, wide aspect 3.0” LCD screen for easy framing and review of images and also shoots breathtaking widescreen (16:9) high definition (HD) movies at 30 frames per second in stereo sound, with an HDMI output for convenient connection to an HD television. The bright LCD screen is also perfect for shooting and playback of high definition movies in wide format.
