Latest Compact Super-zoom Camera - the SX30 IS

Guess what! Canon has recently released its latest compact super-zoom camera - the SX30 IS. This 24 mm ultra wide angle camera has an optical zoom of up to 35x or an equivalent of up to 840mm. Imagine taking an action-shot of the slam by your favorite hoops superstar . . .  from the other end of the court. Or capturing the save by your favorite football team's goalkeeper . . . from the other end of the pitch.The Canon SX30 IS is a fitting follow-up to the PowerShot SX20 IS. This latest high performance camera blends the advanced optics that Canon is known for with a myriad of imaging technologies, allowing even greenhorn photo enthusiasts to capture high quality images. Aside from the huge optical zoom and wide angle lens, the other features of this latest offering by Canon include:
  • 14.1 megapixel sensor
  • Digic 4 processor
  • Optical Image Stabilizer (4.5 stop), USM, UCM
  • 720p HD movie recording
  • 2.7 inch LCD screen
  • Zoom Framing Assist function
This is one point and shoot camera that really packs a punch. With this out in the market, Canon has now raised the ante in the compact camera market. The next question will be - when will the other digital camera companies come up with their own version of Canon's latest compact super-zoom camera?
