The PowerShot SX150 IS lets you record spectacularly detailed 720p HD video at 30* frames per second with clear stereo sound. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot high definition video whenever you want, then downloading the videos to your computer to watch or share with family and friends.
*Actual frame rate is 29.97 fps.
Dedicated Movie Button, Wind Filter and Optical Zoom While Shooting
It's never been easier to shoot videos with a PowerShot digital camera. The PowerShot SX150 IS has a dedicated movie button that lets you start and stop recording instantly. There is no need to go through layers of menus or operate switches or dials to switch to and from video recording mode. The camera is always ready to shoot stills or video whenever you want. The PowerShot SX150 IS also incorporates an electronic wind filter, which suppresses wind noise that can muffle or distort the sound. And unlike less sophisticated point-and-shoot cameras, the PowerShot SX150 IS lets you use the full 12x range of optical zoom when you're shooting a video without sacrificing HD video resolution.
iFrame Movie Support
With the PowerShot SX150 IS, you can also shoot video in the Apple iFrame format, which is a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos. It keeps file sizes small, making it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, making it unnecessary to perform time-consuming and often quality-degrading conversions.
I hate this camera! I have 3 kids and don't think I have been able to take one good picture of them. Even using the shutter speed button, every picture is blurry. It is very particular on lighting too. Many pictures have a horrible glare to it. Mine also says that I need to change the batteries, and then I turn it back on and the batteries will last another month. Garbage!!!

I have heard a lot of complaints about battery life. I always use the Ultimate Lithium batteries or rechargeable batteries. I do not leave batteries in camera when not using. I always remove them at night and put them in when I know I am going to be taking pictures. Some people complain about the flash recycle taking so long. I find it is pretty fast at recharging the flash. I find I don't often need to use flash with the low light setting. The zoom is great when taking pictures as you don't have to stand on top of someone to keep clutter out of the picture. I use the zoom to cut out the clutter. I have only had the camera for two days, but it is a keeper. The pictures come out very clear. I believe that of all the cameras I own, this is going to be my favorite, meaning it will go everyplace with me. I have another camera that has like a 36 x zoom that I use when I will be out taking landscape pictures. I do like that this takes AA batteries so if I run out of power unexpectedly, I can always run to the nearest store and be taking pictures again in a few minutes.

use correct batteries!
Great great little camera. I carry it in my purse all the time..never know when a photo op comes up. my children are grown and gone, but this wld be great camera for moms/dads to keep in diaper bags, to never miss a moment as the video is great too.
I have seen many reviews complaining of battery life. This is not a camera to throw in 2AA alkaline batts and think they will last 12 months. I use only LITHIUM batteries in mine, battery life lasts and lasts (I take alot of photos and video). of course I always have a backup pair of batteries as well, I never want to miss a shot! I am looking forward to moving up to an EOS camera, but will still keep this gem in my purse for everyday. Only neg I have, like others..takes the flash forever to charge up, then recharge again after a shot.
