Canon Powershot SX230 HS Review For Dummies

June 5, 2011 by Remco | 5 Comments

The Canon Powershot SX230 HS (High Sensitivity) is Canon’s top notch camera  for the “point and shoot” market. Of course the web is full of reviews of the Canon Powershot SX230 HS but most are rather lengthy and geeky so time for a review for dummies by a dummy.

Lately I’ve been thinking about what to do with my life and my conclusion was I should spend less money on gadgets and much more on travel. I’ve been living in Indonesia for 2,5 years now and haven’t seen nearly as much as I intended so travel more makes sense. But wait, if I’m gonna travel more I need to upgrade my photo and video equipment, you know, so I can blog about it and show to my daughter. Yahoooooo!!!

Cool! Awesome! But what is it?

I could consider myself as a modern oldtimer, coming from the ancient pre-computer era. I actually watched black & white television and my first computer was a Commodore VIC 20 with roughly 3500 Bytes (really!) available RAM. I used to rule at Ms. Pacman and Dragon’s Lair but frankly I don’t game anymore (except for Angrybirds) because I basically suck at gaming now. I really have no idea what all the blackberry symbols are about and most of the time I don’t see any faces let alone the emotion they express.

Today I saw this picture on Koprol with the text “New toy” and I really had no idea what I was looking at, blank, clueless. Are these the first signs of old-age kicking in? Am I losing touch with the digital community in which I always counted myself as a innovative and up-to-date member? Will I still be able to remove a virus, install a printer and see the difference between a smartphone and an iPod?

Let’s put this to the test and see how up-to-date the average SangatPedas reader is. We dare you, what is this awesome new toy? Dump any idea in the comments.
