I don't claim to be an expert on cameras, but I am the type of person who gathers copious amounts of information before buying something, especially a camera that cost almost $400. I have owned Canon cameras in the past and I am a big fan of their picture quality. I have also dealt with Canon's technical service center in the past and in my opinion they provide outstanding service. Still I wanted to be sure that there wasn't something better out there for the $$. After spending over a year (dating back to the SX10is model) reading numerous reviews, comparing features and costs I broke down and bought the Canon SX20is. I am thrilled with my decision. Great zoom, manageable features (I'm what one might call an enthusiast, but I hate reading instructions), top quality pictures, fast action, stability controls are great and the viewfinder is terrific. I have no complaints whatsoever.

Great Camera for the Price!
I bought this camera in December, 2009. It has been a great experience to take photos with this camera. I like the rich feature set available in this camera along with its long battery life. Moreover the HD Movie recording is absolutely wonderful for a camera of this nature.
If you are really picky about the picture quality, however, you may find a noise, which is usually the case in all Mega Zoom cameras. Anyway, this won't affect much unless you view the images in 1:1 scale. Also if the light condition is good this effect is less visible.
The bottom line is this is well worth the price!

This is my first quality digital camera and it far exceeds my expectations. I am a novice user but I have been getting exceptional photos using the SX20IS camera. I have been taking pictures mainly of an outdoor nature, flowers, gardens and the like. The pictures have not been saturated with too much green or overloaded with hues. The zoom comes in very handy in outside shots.
I have just printed out the best pictures I have ever taken with true accurate colors and exceptional detail.
I have not tried the video function yet. That is still to come.
I have taken countless pictures with my EOS Rebel 35MM camera but the PowerShot is by far the lightest, fastest easiest one to use. This is a sturdy, well made camera which is laid out very well. The right buttons are where they should be.
An excellent choice for a beginner, novice, or a seasoned pro.
