Photography Blog has reviewed the Canon PowerShot SX20 IS compact digital camera. This Canon super-zoom camera feature 20x optical zoom, high definition video and 12 megapixels. It is always interesting to see what the reviewer thinks about the image quality of a camera with a zoom this long.

Some key features for the Canon PowerShot SX20 IS:
-20x optical zoom lens (28-560mm)
-12 megapixel image sensor
-HD video recording (720p)
-2.5″ LCD screen
-Image stabilization

Photography Blog ends up giving the Canon PowerShot SX20 IS a “Recommended” 4 out of 5 stars review. It does not get top score when it comes to image quality as there is quite a bit of noise at higher ISO levels. The video recording on the other hand seems to be good with a handy 20x optical zoom and HD quality. Overall the SX20 IS seems like a good camera with a few shortcomings.

I have the Canon SX20is and the Panasonic FZ35. I am selling my Panasonic. I find that the Panasonic is FAR noisier a camera. I needed the external flash, and the Canon is so much better when uit comes to its controls. The Panasonic is for sale (BTW)
