The best overall camera for this traveler....

  • Jun 5, 2009

I'm a camera buying fool.  I seem to buy one each year because I'm so rough on them.  I've tried, or experienced, nearly all brands.  From this point on, I will only buy Canon camera products.  In my opinion, they have the clearest images, greatest durability, and simplest controls of any of the brands.

I reversed my trend of buying ever-shrinking pocket cameras, and went up in size with the SX110, and I have no regrets.  The 10X zoom lens is simply amazing.  I'm now taking memorable photos from my flying machine.   I had been toying with the idea of a DSLR camera, but didn't want to haul the weight since I travel so often and try to pack lightly.  This is a perfect balance.  All of the user controls are the same as Canon's DSLR line, and it fits in the cargo pocket of my shorts!!   The video mode allows you to zoom in and out as you're filming.    The face recognition feature is interesting, and it goes away if someone hides their face! funny!

I didn't think I'd like the AA battery option, but now realize it offers more flexibility.  You can buy batteries anywhere.  I use rechargables, and purchased a solar battery charger on REI.com.  Now I have limitless batteries even when hiking away from the nearest plug.

After searching online, I ended up buying it from my favorite gadget website (www.newegg.com) for $214 delivered, during a free shipping promotion.

Thank you Canon!

The Canon that I purchased recently has rocked my world ever since. When it comes to digital cameras, I've been loyal to Sony three instances now, and each and every time - I've been showed up by my Canon friends with their crisp and nifty photos. At one point, I even stopped bringing my Sony with me and relied on my friends to take our pictures when going out because their cameras were so much better! My review on the Canon Powershot SX100 praises it in its favor as it became discontinued just …
