1. Canon PowerShot SX230 HS (black) by Cnet

The PowerShot SX230 HS is Canon’s top compact megazoom featuring a 28mm-equivalent wide-angle lens with a 14x zoom. It’s the same lens used in 2010’s SX210 IS and the body is for the most the same, too. The major change is to the camera’s imaging sensor; the SX210 had a 14-megapixel CCD while SX230 has a 12-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS. Without getting into the technical differences, what you need to know is that the new sensor produces better low-light photos and has faster shooting performance than that of its predecessor. Canon also built in a GPS receiver for geotagging your photos while you’re shooting–a first for a PowerShot.

2. Canon PowerShot SX230 HS First Impressions Review by DigitalCameraInfo

The SX230 HS is Canon’s highest-end new PowerShot camera for 2011. The camera is not quite as compact, nor as cheap, as the new Canon ELPH models (the 500 HS, 300 HS, and 100 HS), but it does manage to stuff a ton of features into its small frame. We got a chance to take a good look at the PowerShot SX230 HS at the CP+ convention in Yokohama, Japan, and we’re excited to bring this little powerhouse into our labs later this year for a full-length review.

3. Canon PowerShot SX230 HS Review by InfoSyncWorld

Canon has been hard at work enhancing the wildly popular PowerShot SX210 IS. Meet the company’s first ever GPS-enabled camera, the Canon PowerShot SX230 HS. HS you say? That’s right, Canon stuffed one of their signature HS (High Sensitivity) CMOS sensors in the new SX230 HS for improved low light performance. The company also equipped the SX230 HS with the ability to record 1080p HD video, boosted the LCD pixel count, added a few image effects, and jacked the price up by 50 bucks. We requested many of the these alterations in our SX210 IS review, and Canon delivered. Is the Canon PowerShot SX230 HS worth the boost in Hamiltons? Read our full review to find out.
