Travel light with a compact superzoom. The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS features 14.1MP resolution (1/2.3-in. CCD), 14x optical zoom (28-392mm equiv.), built-in optical image stabilization, and a 7.5-cm (3.0-in.) LCD display screen (230-k dot) with Night Display for easy viewing in low light.

The 14x wide-angle optical zoom is ideal for capturing sweeping landscapes, wide interior shots, large family gathering shots as well as telephoto shots such as distant sports, wildlife action, and school events. Optical Image Stabilization helps reduce camera shake and avoid blurred photos at the long zoom settings or in challenging low lighting conditions. A new Dynamic Mode uses enhanced image stabiliztion when shooting movies at wide-angle settings to greatly reduce camera shake that can occur when you are shooting while shooting and walking.

For general purpose photography, Smart AUTO shooting mode analyzes your scene and automatically selects the appropriate setting. For more challenging shooting situations, match the scene yourself to the appropriate Scene Mode. For example, Night Snapshot scene mode sets the camera so you can take a night picture where the main subject (lit by flash) and the background (long exposure) are both recorded. You don’t have to rush back to get in line when taking self-timer group photos: Face Detection Self-Timer scene mode detects faces in the scene and releases the shutter in response to the appearance of an additional face. Wink Self-Timer and Smile Self-Timer allows you to control when a picture is taken — with a wink or with a smile! Intelligent Contrast Correction system controls the compensation level in pixel units to brighten dark areas. Low Light scene mode extends the high ISO up to 6400 when photographing without flash in dimly-lit situations. Long Shutter scene mode extends the shutter speed range from 1 sec. to 15 sec. for creative night photography.

For those who desire a bit more control, switch to Program AE (P) mode or use Aperture-Priority, Shutter-Priority and Manual modes for full exposure control. Dial in an exposure compensation to compensate for scenes that are too bright or too dark. Custom White Balance allows you to obtain the correct colors under artificial lighting situations.

For artistic photo effects, My Colors can record your pictures more Vivid, Neutral, Sepia, Black & White — or use Custom Color to adjust the contrast, sharpness and saturation to your taste. Other creative effects include Miniature Effect, Fish-Eye effect, Color Accent and Color Swap.

You can shoot HD movie 1280×720 pixels at 30fps with stereo sound. A direct movie button allows immediate shooting and you can zoom during shooting. Enjoy HD movies (and still photos) on your HDTV with a built-in mini-HDMI connector for direct connection to a high-definition TV monitor.

There are two software applications that are included on the CD ROM that you’ll have to install on your computer: ZoomBrowser allows you to upload your pictures and videos from camera to computer, then view and edit them. CameraWindow allows you to easily upload your videos to YouTube directly from the camera or from your computer.

The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS is a compact superzoom digital camera that is ideal for those desiring exposure flexibility and a powerful zoom in a compact package. It comes in Black, Gold or Purple, priced at about US $350 (CAD $430).
