The Canon PowerShot SX30 IS was designed as the ultimate general purpose digicam – this camera can capture images of just about anything – from expansive ultra-wide landscapes to super telephoto close-ups. The SX30 IS should also appeal to family photographers whose children are involved in youth sports and aspiring wildlife/nature photographers looking for a light, fairly compact, all-in-one camera with lots of reach.
The SX30 has the potential to be a “best choice” digicam for those who can accept slightly soft images. Most photo enthusiasts will understand that no camera with a 35x zoom is going produce critically sharp images, even with the most advanced and effective digicam IS system in the industry.
- Longest optical zoom in the world
- 720p HD video
