    I’m amazed at the great photos you get with this camera!

  • Thanks, from one “point and shooter” to another, I would highly recommend the Canon SX20 if you plan to upgrade, you won’t be disappointed!

    Ya I know someone that has one, so I have played around with it, however I cannot have a camera of that size, as I love to travel light. So I recently got the Panasonic ZS7, it’s compact, but still boasts plenty of features. Had I been looking for a larger camera, I probably would have gotten the SX20, trust me ;-).

    beautifully composed shot, nice little camera, i bought one for my daughter and she’s took some cracking shots with it.

  • Thanks, you bought your daughter the Canon? Just curious, I know it’s not as big as most pro cameras, but I wouldn’t classify it as little. Either way, I’d love to see some of her shots as well!
