    Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Super Zoom

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    In the past year or so, there has been a strong push for manufacturers to produce compact super-zoom digital cameras. The reason for this trend is that early super-zoom cameras, such as the Sony DSC-H3, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3, and the Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS, have been largely successful. Read this article to learn more about Canon's new PowerShot SX100 IS Super Zoom.

    A super-zoom camera typically has an optical zoom power of 10x or greater, and it is smaller than a typical DSLR camera. The new Canon PowerShot SX100 IS falls into the super-zoom camera category thanks to its 10x optical zoom and relatively compact size.

    Canon recently introduced the new SX-line of cameras to the public, and the SX100 is the first model to roll off this line. Canon is not new to super-zoom digital cameras. Two of their most popular super-zoom models are the PowerShot S3 IS and the S5 IS. Both of these cameras offer a bit more zoom power than the SX100 (12x optical zoom), but they also cost more than the SX100. The MSRP of the SX100 is set for $299, but I have seen street prices as low as $260 at online stores.

    The SX100 offers a good number of usable features, as well as some nice manual controls for more advanced digital camera users. Here are some of the key specs for the SX100.
