Of course my camera and I are still in the getting acquainted period but already I'm a critic. While the Canon SX220 HS is the easiest camera I've ever used it does not have the crispness of my Sony DHC-7 15X. So the trade off is it is pocket sized, user friendly and light. I can live with that.
However I'll check the settings to see if some sort of an adjustment can be made.
You likely can understand why I like my new camera when you see them side by side.
