You'll be hard-pressed to find a point and shoot or fixed lens camera that can match the versatility of the recently announced Canon PowerShot SX30 IS.
The SX30 IS also includes 14.1 megapixels of resolution, a 2.7-inch LCD (that's viewable from several angles), and 720p HD video capabilities. The SX30 IS should be available for purchase now with an MSRP of $429.99. (Compare Prices)
