Canon SX260 HS is the best travel zoom camera to date.
With a nice and perfectly optimized 12 megapixel cmos sensor. (Specialy NOT A RIDICULOUS 18 MEGAPIXEL TINY SENSOR like Sony!!!)

Nice pictures for a travel zoom.  Wish Nikon, Canon, or any other makers of this type of camera would include a viewfinder, even at the expense of GPS, HD video, or other bells and whistles.  Would make it far easier to steady the camera at long zoom and would extend battery life to boot

I have been using this camera for a week and the photos here are consistent wih my results. You get very good pictures but most of the time not that great an some are awfull, high ISO performance is very good, stabilization is probably the best I’ve seen. The LCD is wonderfull, much better than that on the SX230.
It’s very fast and confortable to use, but purple fringing and chromatic aberrations are a constant, only after photoshoping my pictures are acceptable.
  I think that the main problem is the lens, too dark and not able to deal with the distortions, maybe 20 X in such small body is too much.
  I also got some white orbs in my photos and it seems to me that there are many of them in the motorcicle picture. I also have a Fuji X10 so I always look for white orbs.
  I bought this camera to replace a Sony HX9, but so far I’m not sure it was a good deal.

I have SX220 HS and I am pretty satisfied with it.
This new one it seems to be a little step forward but just little. I like 28 mm wide on the SX220 more because there is less barrel effect against wider angle on new one.
Also 20X zoom is really not so “long2 like it seems to because of this wide angle.

Old one has at 14 x zoom 392 mm and Sx260 has only (500:392=1,27)  27 percent more.
In case of the 28 mm wide angle there will be 20 x zoom at 560 mm or 43 percent more than SX 220.

And the viewfinder will be desired instead of the the GPS. Who really need that?

OK, there is my dreaming super zoom pocket camera:

- from 8mp to max 10 mp,
- minimum 1/2 senzor size
- 26-28 wide angle
- 20-24 optical zoom
- optical IS sistem at least 4 steps
- viewfinder
- battery for minimum 300 shots
- jpeg and RAW
- IQ at least in Canon S100 range
- camera menus like Canon have in this new cameras
-  but ISO and picture largeness on the two separate shortcut button
- P,A,S,M and good Auto
- video is not so imprtant
- price max 350 $ or 350 €

I pray that someone from photo industry read this post and make camera like that. I think that is possible with all that tehnology today.
