Features
Canon's first high-powered 35x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom (24-840mm) with Optical Image Stabilizer
The PowerShot SX30 IS is equipped with a 35x Optical Zoom lens with a focal length of 4.3 - 150.5mm (35mm equivalent: 24 - 840mm) that allows you to shoot any scene from wide-angle to telephoto. The camera uses a VCM (Voice Coil Motor) for high-speed, quiet, energy-efficient lens movement with precise control. Focal length is conveniently indicated on the lens barrel.

Improvements to Movie modes
Dynamic IS allows you to capture video with more precision and ease than ever before! Without having to make any additional camera adjustments, Dynamic IS automatically operates the moment you start recording video. This image stabilizer continuously readjusts throughout the camera's entire zoom range to correct a broad range of motion - especially when shooting in the wide-angle end, so footage comes out steady and clear even while you're walking and recording at the same time!

Shoots superb 720p HD video with stereo sound, view with an HDMI output connector for easy playback on your HDTV.
The PowerShot SX30 IS lets you record video in beautiful high definition (1280 x 720 pixels). The camera also makes it easy to enjoy HD videos (and still photos) on your HDTV with a mini-HDMI connector for direct connection to a high-definition TV monitor. You'll enjoy the HD experience with no degradation of image or audio in the signal, plus the ability to display up to 130 still images at once.

New Zoom Framing Assist button
With its 35x Optical Zoom lens, the SX30 IS can certainly capture subjects located at a very far distance; however, even with a powerful zoom lens it can often be tricky to track a moving subject while zoomed out to the maximum telephoto range and attempting to steady the camera. To counter this problem, Canon created the Zoom Framing Assist function. By simply pressing and holding the convenient Zoom Framing Assist function button, the camera will automatically zoom out to a wider focal point, allowing you to look for your elusive subject. Once found, releasing the button will cause the camera to return to its original position and intelligently keep the subject in focus, so you don't have to trouble yourself with any of the controls. Recording video and images has never been easier with a Canon PowerShot!

Powerful DIGIC 4 Image Processor and 14.1 Megapixels
The PowerShot SX30 IS is equipped with many of the same features as a higher-end camera: an ultra-powerful zoom, eye-popping resolution and advanced picture-improving technology. 14.1 Megapixels of resolution gives your photography incomparable depth and ensures that any section of any shot can be enlarged and cropped with no loss in quality when you edit the image or even if you choose to print the image. It can create crisp, clear 13" x 19" posters.

Large 2.7-inch Vari-angle LCD enables easy viewing.
The camera's 2.7-inch PureColor System LCD screen gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient. The clear and bright LCD also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light. It also has an electronic viewfinder that provides sharp images when you shoot up close during Macro photography.

For those that may be wondering...

It'a great telephoto camera, will get lots of noise on longer shots, but image quality is fairly good.

This isn't a DSLR, it will nOT take rapid-advance photos, I don't care what speed card you put in it.

If you plan on liugging it around, get a "real" camera strap. The included one is narrow and short.

Movie mode, especially with that monstrous zoom can be pretty awesome to play with. I've got some movies from NFL games that are better than what you see on TV.

I'm shocked that there isn't more interest, SLR or not. It's as powerful as most sets of binoculars are!

my dad had one of these that i was responsible for having got stolen....for a non d-slr camera, the pictures are pretty freaking impressive and the zoom on this thing is just incredible. though i'd consider getting a monopod or tripod to get remotely decent full zoom shots. great value at <$200!

Check out SX50 at Amazon, to get a feel of the ultra zoom cameras.

Several other cameras on sale for 35% or 40% off.

I bought a Canon 600d last year and have been more into DSLRs, so I can't speak to the quality or capability of the P&S models.

Very good camera,I think you have to pay tax but no big deal.

had this in cart and ready to check out and said I better check the warrenty. Nothing on the websight so I called customer service..Only a 90 day warrenty on a refurbished camera. Too much money to take the chance..
