A far better camera than the TZ7 deal at £179 and at least equal to the TZ10 at £230+ IMHO.

Powerful and user friendly, the smart Canon PowerShot SX 210 IS boasts a staggering array of features for such an affordable price. This sleek digital compact camera combines the power of 14.1 megapixels with a sensational zoom, high definition (HD) movie mode and the ability to have complete creative control over your images – and it’s one of the cheapest and best of its kind on the market, with no compromise on quality.

Superbly detailed images can be enlarged to large sizes without any reduction in image quality, thanks to its 14.1 megapixel sensor.

In addition to the powerful 14x zoom lens, which brings distant subjects into clear view, the compact body of the Power-shot SX210 IS houses Canon’s fast-acting DIGIC 4 processor which supports a wide range of ultra-handy photographic functions to make taking great pictures easy.

For example, the SX 210 has Smart Auto to choose optimal camera settings by matching what it sees in the frame to one of 22 different scene types. While Easy mode gives the option of truly fuss-free point-and-shoot, more experienced users can set it to Full Manual control mode and take creative control over their photography. Fish-eye effect is an added feature on this versatile compact digital camera.

The SX-210 also boasts optical image stabilisation to combat the camera-shake which can cause image blurring, particularly at high zoom.

If it’s perfect pictures of friends, family and loved ones you want, the super smart Face Detection Technology adjusts the settings and focus to deliver perfect group shots. The ingenious Smart Shutter mode lets you trigger the shot remotely by either winking, smiling, or when a new face enters the frame!

You can shoot clear, bright images in dim conditions thanks to the built-in i-Contrast feature, which reproduces the details in areas of highlight and shadow to give a truer view of what the human eye can see.

The Power Shot SX-210 features a large, wide aspect 3.0” LCD screen for easy framing and review of images and also shoots breathtaking widescreen (16:9) high definition (HD) movies at 30 frames per second in stereo sound, with an HDMI output for convenient connection to an HD television. The bright LCD screen is also perfect for shooting and playback of high definition movies in wide format.

AMAZING DEAL!

LOUGHBORO GUY

does it have hd 1080p video recording??


No, it's 720p

I think I had a look at this on my quest for a new compact camera, but didnt like the way you have to open the flash when using it, rather than it being built into the front of the camera. Also the zoom buttons were "difficult" to use (but Im sure you get used to it)..

I ended up buying the TZ10 for similar kind of money.

Has the tz10 got hd 1080p video recording??

Agree with the flash... it's a shame it doesn't pop up when you need rather then every time... it does look cool, but in the real life it can be a little annoying

Google ffs.

I bought it and am really happy. One apparent benefit is the fact that the SX210 has a significantly faster speed.
I was also concerned about the flash, but it is really a misconception. The flash opens when the camera is turned on, and fires as needed (by default, can be changed to off or on), unless one's finger stops it ascending, in which case the flash is off. If one then wants the flash, it must be raised manually, which isn't too hard.
The zoom is more like a joystick, which I personally like.
However, the real amazing part is the 14x zoon in such a compact camera.

Price is now £199 ( £229 minus £30 cashback)
