I am giving this camera 4 and 1/2 stars, but it won't let you put in the half! This is a great camera, it is compact, but has some reassuring weight behind it, so it doesn't feel cheap. It looks really nice style wise, and the gunmetal grey colour is a lovely change from black or bright silver. The image quality of photos is excellent, with the high pixel resolution allowing high zoom levels without distortion. The photos it takes in low light conditions is a revelation, thanks to Canons clever technology, which is great because I hate the light quality that small flashes bring. This camera loses half a star for me for two reasons. Firstly, this camera has an inbuilt fault where it believes the camera battery is dead when using the video recorder setting, when it isn't. This is easily remedied using a download to fix the bug, but it first happened to me during my son's nativity play, so obviously we lost lots of precious footage. How it can be that Canon did not notice this fault during testing sessions for the camera is amazing. The second reason is the position of the pop up flash. I hold a camera with a finger on the top of the camera, either side of the camera body. However, this means that your finger blocks the flash from rising, which causes an error so you have to restart the camera. I am learning to hold the camera differently, but for me, as I don't like using a flash too much, it hasn't been too much of an issue. Overall a fantastic little camera whose picture quality belies it's size, just please Canon, fix your bugs before you release a product for sale.

I've had Canons for many years, Ixus's, a G10 and a D350, but I've never had a so-called travel zoom with a long lens. I normally prefer a brighter lens, having had an F2 until this, but the Digic 6 seems to be an improvement and goes some way to compensating for the necessarily less bright lens on this camera.

I've only used it a couple of times, so this is really just a quick initial review to kickstart this model. I debated between this, the SX 280, the S110 and the G15. I dropped the G15 because I really like having a 24 or 25mm lens and I thought I'd try the latest Digic 6 over the 5 on the undoubtedly superior but uninspiring S110. I can't see me using GPS or wifi, so that left the SX 270.

First of all, the blue is lovely, but that's not why I bought it, which was actually to try the big zoom. I'm pleased to say that it's at least as good as I had hoped. The flexibility of a 20x zoom is incredible, especially on a bright day, but I was a bit surprised that it actually takes the camera a few seconds to focus and stabilise at that range. Ideally you'd want to use even a mini-tripod at that range, especially in less bright conditions, but so far my handheld shots at 20x have been very impressive to me at least.

I've also used it quite a bit indoors with the warmer flash sync setting (I forget the name) and it seems as good as my Ixus with the F2 lens, although I've not done any outdoor lit building shots yet.

I'd read that the common Canon quirk of the flash popping up on switch-on didn't apply to this range, but unfortunately that only seems to apply when the camera is set to no flash.

I ordered two of these SX270HS's with high expectations from reading online reviews and also the reputation that it has established on Amazon - I can't fault the cameras photo/video quality but it suffers from an issue that alot of these camera models do.

There is an 80 page thread on the Canon forum regarding this issue, in which the vast majority of them suffer from : [...]
Basically what happens is, the camera records video for 1-5 minutes and then shuts down stating that it has low battery after displaying the battery indicator. This happens when the camera has had a full charge and once booted back up the battery once again displays a full battery. This issue is consistent with the two cameras I purchased.

Canon have constructed a 'fix' which is in the form of a firmware update but it's not applicable to my camera as the cameras delivered by Amazon are already running the latest firmware - there is alot of discussion on the canon forums that the fix does not work in the vast majority of instances and it's an actual fault with the camera which Canon won't admit due to the cost of a mass recall.

Before purchasing this camera, or it's sister SX280 I reccomend reading up thoroughly on the battery issues that these face - as it's an all too common problem. Once again, the two cameras I purchased both suffer from identical issues and canon support recommend just sending them back to Amazon.

I purchased the SX270 to use as compact alternative to my Canon 7D for a recent ski holiday. I was pleasantly surprised with the image quality of this camera, image stabilisation proved excellent and it was very easy to use. Battery life for still photographs, even in cold conditions was good and was able to last a full day's skiing, however life reduced dramatically when the video function was used. My only negative would be video use, which produced slightly jumpy video and proved a little disappointing. very happy with this purchase and I would highly recommend the Canon SX270 to anyone looking for a DSLR back up or high quality compact camera.
