Bought the red version of the Canon SX260. Takes great pictures, even with the 20x optical zoom and the 80X digital zoom (essentially turns into a 3 megapixel camera). Image stabilization works well in low light and during videos. The one I received did have a noticeable airy sound with a small high pitched squeal when I took a video in a very quiet environment (not manipulating the camera in any way). I would guess that the automatic gain on the mic was a bit too aggressive. I had read about this in other reviews, so checked it out. I happened to be in S. CA shortly after I received the camera, so took it into the Canon service center in Irvine, not knowing what to expect. The clerk checked out the camera, and after some discussion and the technician checking it out, offered to send me a new one from their customer center on the east coast. I was hoping that it would not have the same problem. It arrived 2 days later, and the video mic works excellently.

I and my family have owned several Canon cameras from point and shoots up to more expensive Rebels and 60D, and this one continues the tradition of giving excellent pictures (and now videos).

I have the camera for about a month now and I'm just getting used to it. Overall the camera is okay. I'm getting the feel of it. However, the two things I don't like is the awkward placing of the flash. The flash gets in the way. The other thing I don't like about the camera is the view mode. When you exit the view mode, the camera turns off automatically. I like the zoom feature. It's a good purchase. So far I don't regret purchasing the camera.

I absolutely LOVE this camera!!! If you're looking for a small, compact camera with high quality and a low price tag, you definitely need to consider this one!!!! It takes crystal clear pictures!!! Even when zoomed in all the way the quality is still pretty good!!! The video feature is awesome!!! The sound is very clear!! The color of the body of the camera is a really pretty pink-red color (I think more pink) It's small enough to throw in your purse for the woman on the go!!! You will NOT be disappointed with this camera!!!

The camera comes with a nice assortment of add-ons and trinkets, but the real joy is in using the camera. For a small increase in size, it has features of both a great camera and a very good video recorder. Shutter lag is almost non-existent and recycle time for the flash is also faster that other cameras, and the zoom (20x optical) is better than the competition. Beats the Nikon pocketable cameras I've owned and given.

This camera holds up as a good minimum quality camera. Easy to just point and shoot and keep high res as well as great colored photos. Zoom is great even going as bit farther than 20x, but it will get more distorted. Worth the cost.

I bought this one for myself after getting one for my friend. We both love the small size and great photo capabilities. I love taking it on my vacations. The 20X zoom is wonderful. No more huge cameras and long lenses.

This was a gift, but my wife loves how fast the camera shoots a picture with a level 10 card in it. You know how some digital cameras have a 1-2 second delay from clicking the button to actually shooting the picture? This one does not. The functions and the rear screen are great. And she is falling in love with the "rapid shoot" feature to capture those perfect pictures that either end up as blurry, or somebody's eyes are closed, or are just a moment too soon or late to get exactly what you "thought" you were shooting. Forget shooting pictures with your phone and get this camera if you want some quality keeper shots.
