First to review

best tarvel zoom camera of 2012

this one is a really awesome camera to own, picture quality is also really good. 20x zoom works well and can be taken to 80x with digital zoom. full manual options such as PASM makes this camera suitable for the ones who like to test and experiment with their cameras. although canon says that the battery lasts only 230 shots, i have got around 260 along with video recording.

low light imaging is also good(but remember to use P mode and keep the ISO in the range of 400-800)
flash works well in dark areas.
Handheld night scene mode is also a treat to have.
all other effects such as fish eye etc

Good one

I did not buy this from Flipkart this time but this one is real good. Though bit bulky (but it fits in my jeans pocket), this is worth your money. It can take cool pictures in dark, day pictures are DSLR quality. Its very easy to use unlike DSLR's and the bonus in 20X optical zoom. The chip inside it does many (and many means many) important things which is so critical for good photos. I am sure you won't use all the functions in the camera as "Auto" mode takes good quality pictures but if you are into camera then those features might prove handy to you. I was apprehensive spending 17k on a ca

compact slr..

i bought this camera one year before and this has fulfilled all my needs.
20x zoom helps in taking far shots..
best in dark
full hd
zooming on and off frequently reduces battery back up

Best travel zoom under 15k

No other compact camera with 20x zoom can be as good as this for this price.

Bad at battery backup but carrying a spare battery solves the problem.

excellent picture quality

I hav just purchased one month back from shopping mall in Bangalore. I went to purchase a sony h200 as sony is my brand. as I gone through cameras , I thought this canon 240hs would click better pictures.. Full battery can take this pics of 240 no.s as mentioned in canon handbook. but I personally experienced that I have taken up to 350 pics with full battery charge. It is best camera for travel..

Better Picture Quality
Better Video Quality
good battery life
Full HD recording

20X is not much zooming quality
Price is quite relatively high
Dps is quite low

overall I am satisfied

Usefull but average.........

Its a quite good camera in this price range. I just bought this one last month and it was then Priced Rs. 19395 /- so, I am in loss,..... a little.
I have compared another camera's image property and I found that this camera has low dpi,
DPI=180(CANON POWERSHOT SX240HS),20X optical
DPI=300(NIKON COOLPIX S5100),5X optical
other features are almost same

SLR in compact size....

this cam is really good....
people like me would never go-in for the hassles involved in handling a SLR when things like this are available.

be it the HD recording or the pics in different settings....all clicks well with this cam at your disposal.
the clarity and zoom are too good and work well.flash works well and battery back-up is promising :)
