It seems that Canon improved all the predecessors shortcomings. The round zoom control is back like in the good old days; the sensor is now CMOS with backlight; and resolution is just 12 megapixel (down from 14 on the SX210 which was an overkill); the LCD resolution is finally doubled to 461k pixels; and they upped the HD video recording to 1080 (up from 720p). I think that they hit all the right buttons, it is very appealing (especially for the price, $350), although I would rather pay less and omit the GPS, which is useless for me (In Europe they DO offer the SX220 which is the same camera for cheaper without the GPS, but not in the USA. Go figure why.) However, it seems to me that Canon wants always to stay one step behind the competitors. Compared to the Nikon COOLPIX S9100, which is basically the same specs, and offer even lower price ($330), the Nikon appears to be the better of the 2. The zoom is 18x (compared to SX230's 14x); the LCD's ultra-high resolution is double than the SX230 (921K pixels), and Canon limits the 1080 HD movie recording to 24fps, while Nikon lets you record up to 30fps in 1080.
