The Canon PowerShot is powered by a NB-6L rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lets you shoot up to 230 images on full charge. The HDMI port allows you to transmit your photos and HD videos on a compatible large screen television.

best travel 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...
