Canon PowerShot SX230 HS
Released March, 2011
The Pros:Sharp 14x zoom lens 28-392mm (35mm equiv.), little distortion. 12MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor - much improved low light performance over previous generation designs. Built-in GPS for geotagging your photos - a first for the PowerShot line.
The Cons:Lens is relatively slow (due to being so long) - F/3.1-5.9, poorer in low light situations, not as capable of isolating subjects from backgrounds/foregrounds with DOF. Short battery life. Boring bulky aesthetic - unchanged from the previous generation.
The Canon PowerShot SX230 HS is a GPS-enabled compact digital camera announced in February 2010. It features a GPS chip that can tag a photo with latitude, longitude, and altitude data, and then later direct a user back to that exact same spot.
