Effects, Filters, and Scene modes
Scene modes and picture effects each get their own stops on the mode dial. There are eleven total scene modes, the most useful one has got to be High-speed Burst HQ, which allows full resolution bursts at 10 frames per second. Either that, or Low Light mode, which limits resolution to 3 megapixels, but unlocks ISO levels up to 6400.
Picture effects are a little more goofy than scene modes, and include effects like Fish-eye, Miniature, Toy Camera, Color Accent, and more.
Just like the SX230 HS, this camera features an integrated GPS transceiver capable of "tagging" the EXIF data of each shot with geographic information. It was impossible for us to get a signal indoors, but outside we achieved a lock after about two or three minutes. The interface is simple and unobtrusive. Best of all it's clear, notifying the user how and when GPS is being used, and whether or not it will continue to drain the battery while the camera is turned off.
