The camera is small and easy to carry around for a 20X zoom. But large enough to have decent sized LCD which can be made bright enough to use outdoors. The automatic exposure features work well and I have not had to override them with manual settings. The picture quality is good. HD movies are absolutely stunning. The only problem is the battery runs down very quickly when shooting movies in below freezing temperatures.

Canon SX270

Great camera but ordered online and still had to go to the store to buy an SD card and a card reader. Does not come with either of these or a cablke to plug into computer. So what is the point of my online experience, still had to fight through the holiday crowds. Not impressed.
