4 out of 5 eggsGreat fast camera

Pros: Fast and great zoom, long battery life. Takes nice pictures and videos.

Cons: Sometimes when you turn on the power, if you have your finger on the top, it keeps the flash closed even if you did not want it closed. Its just in a bad position.

1 out of 5 eggsCanon SX210 IS

Pros: high quality photos

Cons: dying a slow death by E32 and it restarts, looking for similar issues I discovered many posts describing the same problem. I am losing my good opinion of Canon products. It is out of warranty, of course.

Other Thoughts: cost as much to send back as to buy a new one. very expensive for one year ownership, I did not expect this.

5 out of 5 eggsworked for me

Pros: good weight, clear pictures, the auto feature is very nice, looks nice and is a good size, i am very happy with the camera

Cons: videos are in Quicken format instead of .wmv or .avi, i had issues trying to put a slideshow together using windows live moviemaker, the quality was very good but i had to convert it to a file type that windows could recognize, if you just wanted to have a single video you would be good to go, Battery price, damaged easily

Other Thoughts: I used this camera while deployed to Iraq and it held up very well with all of the sand, it scratches easily so just be careful with it. it uses a battery pack, you can buy an off brand maker and the batteries work just as well as the cannon batteries for 1/3 of the price, a camera case is a must for this baby, otherwise carrying it around could end badly, try to purchase it in a bundle with a camera bag and extra battery

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Compact, stylish, excellent zoom range, convenient control layout.

Cons: Flash location and power, slow lens, slow zoom motors, screen aspect ratio. Autofocus doesnt do well in low-light or full zoom.

Other Thoughts: This camera is an excellent compliment to any photographers kit. Small enough to slip in a pocket, yet versatile enough to get most jobs done in lieu of carrying a DSLR.
Where its really let down is its flash, and the speed of its lens. At best its only an f/3.1. The lens motors are also physically slower than I expected. It takes about 3 sec to go from 5mm to 70mm. While that sounds like nothing in context, its enough to make a difference on that great shot.
The other big thing this has against it is its flash. Its miniscule and in the worst location ever. Although it can be kept down if you happen to be resting your hand there when you turn on the cam (As many people will).
The autofocus is problematic under certain circumstances and the screens aspect ratio is 16:9 instead of the normal 4:3 so theres always blank space on the screen in normal shooting.
For most people its a great all-rounder with my recommendation.

2 out of 5 eggsSold mine

Pros: Camera size, quality of outdoor pictures

Cons: Speed of the camera (between shots)

Other Thoughts: I owned this camera for about two months before selling it. I could not get past how incredibly slow this camera is between shots. I missed countless shots of my kids because the camera was not ready, even when not using the flash. I have owned 5 or 6 other Canon cameras, and this one was my first disappointment.

5 out of 5 eggsVideo Zooming is Top Notch

Pros: I had a laundry list of features I wanted in a P&S camera before I purchased this one. At the top of my list was optical zooming during shooting of video / holding focus during the zooming of video / and not making any mechanical motor noises when zooming video. This camera fit the bill. Occasionally, however it does not perfectly hold focus during zooming video.

The camera shoots great stills as well (I'm an amateur so I pretty much just stick with Auto). The lens is better than others I've owned in that the lines of buildings do not distort (much) when a building fills the shot.

Cons: The placement of the pop-up flash is, as others have pointed out, not ideal. It would have been nice if it was above the lens and only popped up when lighting conditions demanded it. Also, video quality is good but not great in that it is "only" 720p and records at only 3MB/s.

Other Thoughts: My next camera will shoot 1080p video and have a recording rate of at least 6MB/s. I won't settle for anything less than 10X optical zoom (and the ability to zoom, hopefully zooming at variable speeds, during video shots) after using this SX210 camera.

If you are contemplating a smallish P&S camera, this one is a steal at $250. (I paid $350 when it was first released less than 1 year ago.)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat camera packed with SLR features

Pros: Very slick and easy to use. Zoom is outstanding and settings are straightforward. A great buy!

Cons: Couldn't find a way to stop the pictures from rotating when the camera is tilted, but otherwise no serious problems.
