5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing camera!!!!, 30 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Canon PowerShot SX30 IS Digital Camera (14.1 MP, 35x Ultra Wide-angle Optical Zoom) 2.7 Inch Vari-angle Purecolor LCD (Electronics)
With a camera as good as this and with the amount of features it boasts, this review could run into pages. However there are plenty of professional reviews out there that sing the praises of the camera so my personal view will be brief. Firstly it's a Canon which means quality. Secondly it's got a 35x optical zoom which means, in 35mm lens equivalent, a range of 24 - 840mm which is the biggest zoom on the market. Thirdly it shoots HD video at 720p which is more than adequate for the enthusiastic amateur. 1080p would be better but then it would have to wear its underpants outside its trousers and leap tall buildings in a single bound!

I have been a fan of bridge camera. For a long time and this is my third (the previous 2 being an Olympus 10x and a Panasonic Lumix 18x) Whilst they were good cameras this one now sets the standard for all others. As a casual birdwatcher and a new grandparent this camera more than serves my needs and I would recommend it to anyone who wants amazing performance and doesn't want to fork out the £1000+ that a DSLR with this specification would cost.
