      Bought this camera for our vacation, Pigion Forge, TN. Very easy to use, basically turn on and click away. The zoom is incredible, best I have ever had in a camera for this price so far. Takes great pics, easy view feature. I loaded it with a 32 gig memory card, so no chance of running out of memory like some cameras I had in the past. J could take hundreds of picks and not have to decide which memories I had to delete on the fly to take a new shot. I know there are a lot of better cameras out there for those who are more experienced photographers, but for the price and features, this camera is great if you are just trying to capture memories like I was.

      I love this camera. I was concerned about going back to a larger size because I've had a smaller one for the past few years. It was worth the trade to get such excellent pictures and the zoom is amazing! Thanks

      My Canon Power Shot is one of if not the best camera I've owned. It does every thing a big/regular camera does and is very compact. I'm really happy it was introduced to me as I am a very happy camper...

      The pictures were grainy. Could never get just a simple picture to be clear. Tried different lighting, backgrounds, adjusting camera etc and still not great pictures

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      It's a good camera for just about anyone. I like to take up close pictures and the zoom wasn't doing the job that I wanted. I returned this camera and bought one with a separate zoom lens.

      Canon PowerShot SX420 IS review
      A budget friendly camera, the Canon Powershot SX420 IS uses a very similar design to the model that precedes it. Featuring 42x optical zoom and 20Mp resolution, this camera rated very well for image stabilisation, but can it take a crisp and clearFull Review

      This PowerShot is a good fit for basic snapshots, but beyond a really powerful zoom lens, the SX420 IS does not deliver the performance needed for low light shooting or action photography. Read more in our Full Conclusion.Full Review

      Canon has announced the PowerShot SX420 IS, a budget-friendly long-zoom digital camera. While using a similar design to the SX410 IS that precedes it, the SX420 brings a number of improvements and features to this super-zoom compact line.Full Review
