Here for your consideration is a Canon SX230is 14.1MP digital camera in great shape. This is a splendid "carry around" camera: it fits in most any pocket and has more zoom than most of its ilk (equivalent to 28-392mm), along with the legendary Canon build quality. This is just what the doctor ordered for shooting candid shots of your kids (or grandkids) playing sports, and it won't weigh you down.

A couple years ago, I used an SX210 for my CL and eBay listing photos for several months and can vouch for its performance. It is versatile and takes great macro shots.

The camera comes with an OEM battery, a new battery charger, a 4GB SDHC memory card, a mini-tripod, a lens cleaning kit and a new Vivitar case that fits it perfectly and has a neck strap. Also included is the original box/cords/software/start-up guide. The manual is available online for free from Canon. Plus, in this day of everything under the sun being made in China, this camera was still made in Japan, and the quality of fit and finish shows it.

Online, in good condition, these run from $45 to over $130. This one is quite nice, but not perfect; there is a little wear around the edges. The lens and LCD window are unmarked and it works perfectly. So, come get it!!

As much as I'd like for you to buy my item, I know there are others available for what appear to be lower prices. Think about it: You buy an "untested" camera like this one, for $20. Then you have to buy a battery for $10, an SD card for $8, a charger for $10 and a case for $10. You now have $58 in an untested camera that may have a ton of unforeseen problems. For $8 LESS, you could have bought a working example from a reputable seller (not necessarily me) who had examined and thoroughly checked the camera before listing it. Sometimes, you really DO get what you pay for!

Note: This is a small camera that is CAPABLE of shooting short videos...but it is not really a video camera (nor is any camera in this class). If you plan to shoot video regularly, do both of us a favor and buy a real video camera.
