This Camera Delivers What You Need - The Canon SX20is

Real Estate Agent with Excellent Service Realty

I have the 10 megapixel version of this camera and love it. It's a Canon Powershot SX10is. Now they make it in a 12 mp which is the SX20is. You can adjust the resolution to a low setting and not have to resize pics to put in your mls. It even takes video at the quality of a regular video camera plus it has stereo mics on the front. This camera has all the bells and whistles. You can adjust the iso for low light settings too. I got mine from J & R. They've been in business a really long time. You will want to get a nice camera bag to house it in when not in use. The big difference between this and a Rebel or the like is that this is a one piece unit; you can not change lenses, but for taking house photos you really don't need to. It does have a really good zoom that makes up for that. It takes an SD card which is widely used and as well a cord to connect it to your computer to transfer pictures. I love my camera.

Thanks for sharing about this.  I'm in the market for a new camera.  I probably will end up with a SLR so I can occasionally change lenses.  My competition has been using the occasional 'fish eye' lense photo on listings and really making what would otherwise be a mediocre room look spacious and bright.

I recent just got an olympus that has a wide angle less, is shock proof up to a 30 ft drop (great for my butter fingers) and it goes up to 33.3 ft under water.

Barry, I think that is what I have.  Problem is I don't have time to really read up on how to use it's extra features.  It does a great job with just the auto buttons.

Chris, I would truly stay away from the Fisheye lens. It distorts. The only time I would use it would be in cramped rooms. ..say a bathroom where you need to capture a wider view. In short, I hate fisheye lens. I can tell the difference. It's like wearing thick glasses to look at the world.

Sandra, yes the auto button functions nicely, but learn how to bump up the iso when you have a dark room and you will be pleasantly surprised at how much better your photos will be. easy step to save from having to do photoshop later.

The point of this camera is it has a stronger flash than your regular point and shoot cameras.
