I love going to concerts. Sometimes I get good seats but when I don't I need a good zoom.
Just bought the SX260. I took my nieces to the Miami zoo and I must say I was very impressed with the 20x optical zoom and quality of the 12MP photos.
I used the camera in full Manual mode which is great for a pocket camera.
One big time flaw I found is the electronic pop up flash. It's positioned on the
Left top, exactly where your left finger rests
To hold the camera... If the flash needs to pop up and your finger is covering it, the mechanism will get stuck and give you and error saying the position of the flash is wrong and to restart the camera to reset it.
I can believe Canon could have such a design flaw...
Otherwise, the camera is fast, the focus is spot on and the quality is great for a $299 camera.
