Devil Drive says:

hey,i have a canon sx275hs.had a question.what setting to do if i wanna take a moving object's picture ( ??

Joshua Camacho says:

This camera really suffers from not having 60fps on video shooting… Still video or video little movement or objects that don't have much movement are spectacular but video with a lot of movement or moving objects is a bit choppy.

Gelina Figueroa says:

How do you plug it into your computer?

LEXPIX says:

Awesome deal.

Honey Bunny says:

Great review! Thanks!

LEXPIX says:

Most likely.

RachelDiaries says:

Im thinking of buying this camera. Do you know if iMovie '11 supports it?

klleptic says:

Can't wait to get this! I just crushed by ancient digital camera the other day by accident and I figured it was time to upgrade to something classy.

LEXPIX says:

4;3 is standard definition. That would be 640×480.

Michelle G says:

When I record it is 16:9 widescreen how can I change it into full screen 4:3

LEXPIX says:

Both are good cameras. Yeah, I considered handlebar mounts, but vibration is too much.

KLisaLisa says:

Nice video! I may get this camera or the elph 130. You may want to get the Pedco Ultra tripod that can attach to the handlebars of your bike.

LEXPIX says:

It is one of the best values in this class of camera. Also one of the slimmest as well.

Ringing Peace says:

Thank you for this review and samples. I was doing reaserch for last 10 days to find best camera for me and that means to have good quality pictures, to record HD movies, to have super slow motion video and to be small. I think that this camera is the winner and I will buy it tomorrow. As far as I can see from this comments here I will not be disappointed 🙂

Jabbar Hummatov says:

nice review

LEXPIX says:

Higher 16MP setting ideal for if you want to print out photos or want to crop into your frame in a photo editing program.

LEXPIX says:

You are welcome and thanks for commenting.

TheCaljoy says:

Thanks for the review.

LEXPIX says:

Hard to say. I would look at the Canon G15 for its fast aperture lens ideal for low light video and stills. Not as pocketable as the Elph line, but not bulky like a DSLR.

LEXPIX says:

Since I'm more familiar with the Canon, I'd say the 110, although the Sony looks nice.

Jill Roberts says:

What is the best canon powershot for video?

Abhishek Jaiswal says:


I had a question, I am planning to buy a point and shoot and I have basically narrowed it down to Canon PowerShot 110, Sony WX150 and the FujiFilm FinePix F660EXR. Price for all 3 is almost the same so that isnt a factor for me. I am somewhere between a novice and intermediate in terms of understanding photography but not a great deal. Which would you recommend to pick? Your answer would be important for me to decide the camera. Thanks in advance

LEXPIX says:

It has auto and selectable preset WB.
