Default Canon PowerShot SX210 IS yes or no?

Hey Guys,

I have found a offer for the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS for 210 $.
Would you recommend me to buy this camera?

Or are there better cameras for around 200 $ ?

Please give me a feedback

Thank you

AeroX-

Yes, the price is good. As long as you understand that the SX210 is fine in the middle of the zoom range, but image quality falls off somewhat at and near full zoom, and there is some distortion at the full wide angle position.

@ sarah

I have no cam at the moment and i want to buy one cam which is not too bad for a beginner.

In the under $200 price range, the canon SX130 is a very good choice.

Canon PowerShot SX210 = 160
canon SX130 = 130

The clear choice, at least for me, would be the SX130.

The lens on the SX210 is mediocre at best. I would look elsewhere.
