Default Canon Powershot SX30 IS Reviewed by PhotographyBLOG

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/canon_powershot_sx30is_review/' target='_blank'>http://www.photographyblog.com/revi..._sx30is_review/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"The Canon PowerShot SX30 IS is a brand new super-zoom camera sporting an incredible 35x zoom lens equivalent to a focal length of 24-840mm. The lens construction comprises multiple special lens elements including an Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) element as well as a Hi-UD element, compensating for light aberrations while maintaining high image quality across the entire zoom range."</em></p><p><span><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1287071008.usr15670.jpg" /></span></p><p><span><span>PhotographyBLOG reviews the latest superzoom from Canon, the SX30 IS. As I mentioned during its introduction, the 35x lens begins at a 24mm equivalent, so it does not necessary mean it has the longest reach among superzooms. Starting at 24mm gives it more flexibility though. PhotographyBLOG were not as impressed with it though (modern- day&nbsp;interpretation&nbsp;of ratings: 3/5 bad, 4/5 average, 4.5/5 good, 5/5 great). I suppose for now, these cameras are just about the end of their evolution stage till some better tech trickles down to this price level.</span></span></p>

4 out of 5 overall score sounds pretty good at first glance - but upon closer inspection one fines that the score for Still Image Quality is only 3.5/5.

Disappointing.

Trying to cram a high MP count onto a small sensor is an obvious route to disaster - but apparently Marketing requirements dictate that it be done.


May have to switch allegiance to Fuji: the FinePix HS10 sticks with 10MP & seems to provide much better image quality....
