The Canon SX230 HS is the 2011 update to Canon's line of compact travel-zoom cameras, combining GPS functionality, a 12.1-megapixel CMOS image sensor, and 14x optical zoom lens in a slim body.
This camera benefits from optical image stabilization, predominantly physical controls, a 3-inch LCD, and a Digic IV processor allowing for full 1080p HD video capture. In such a compact frame, we worry that the 14x zoom will mean poor image quality, but only testing will determine the outcome.
