    I've always been a Canon photographer (30 years) but I am very disappointed with the SX230. I bought the camera a year and a half ago and no matter what I try (changing settings, modes etc...), the photos do not come out sharp and the colors are flat. Surprisingly the videos are top quality - bright and sharp. I really don't understand. My previous digital camera which I bought in 2006 was also a point and shoot (don't remember the model) and I only got high quality sharp photos and prints - even when I made enlargements. People were always surprised that I only used a p and s camera
    I read up about the different cameras before I bought this one and the camera got good reviews. Maybe my settings are off? Can anyone give me advice? If it's a lost cause and I bought a lemon, what p and s camera would you recommend (before I look to other companies)?
    Thanks

    You can adjust the SX230 to increase sharpness and saturation, as well as other factors. Have you tried that?
