Canon’s SX20 And SX120 Powershots Are Zoomy Enough

Canon’s SX20 And SX120 Powershots Are Zoomy Enough

While others are investing in thousands in their dSLRs and Micro Four Thirds cameras, many normal folk pick up still-hefty point-and-shoots like the Canon SX120 ($US250) and SX20 ($US400)—both available this September.

For a bit more cash, Canon will give you a 12.1-megapixel sensor, 20x zoom (all optical, not that digital crap), 720P video recording and a 2.5-inch LCD. Sadly, it still runs off AAs.

Not a bad pick-up. It features a 10-megapixel sensor, 10x optical zoom (with image stabilisation) and a 3-inch LCD screen. Sadly, this too runs off AAs.
