Thanks for your reviews of a wide variety of digicams. However, I guess like most sites inconsistency is a problem. I own an SL300, the exact same camera as the SL 240 except for bigger zoom range, yet this one gets a ‘recommended’ and a score of 3.5 for IQ. The SL300 got ‘above average’ and and IQ marked down to 3, with comments like it’s got a painted look. I’ve compared the 2 and they’re the same. Hmmm. I think it depends to some extent on the reviewer and what they’re looking for.

OMG! Even low contrast scenes looks awful.

I am a complete beginner…..well almost. Have been experimenting with the SL240, it was an Xmas present that I wanted. Have already bought my first tripod that obviously cuts out the blur factor. I am so enjoying using it, and have taken loads of shots at my local hostelry, for different events.
Wish I had known years ago, how being a supposed photographer,could have pulled the ladies.
It is a good camera for the price. Am already looking to buy an external flash.

Great camera. Perfectly good, unless you need interchangeable lenses, its as good as it gets,in practicle terms. A big plus is you cant get dust into the chip. Just like compact cameras..
A great travel camera.

How come this camera has a limited of 9 minutes at 48(ish) seconds on the highest quality for recording video? Is there an option somewhere that I can’t see that can give me unlimited recording length (Until I run out of memory) so I can have just one, consistent video instead of having multiple, inconsistent videos to work with? It’s a great camera and I love it but that’s the only flaw that it has for me. Does anyone else know what I’m talking about? Has anyone found a solution?

I would still like to know if anyone has a comment on my question stated directly above. It’s been 1 month and 10 days since I’ve posted that comment and yet nobody has responded. Does anyone know about my issue?

I’ve tried both 8 and 64 gigabytes but I get the same time length for all the video quality options. From this I can very much say that it doesn’t matter what size the SD card is but is a problem within the camera itself. I’m starting to think that it’s just the way the camera was designed and I’m going to have to deal with this. I wouldn’t post here without thinking that it could be something as simple as switching SD cards. It’s an issue I’ve struggled with since I got the camera. I’ve looked through the options but there is no setting for it so I’m just going to assume, unless somebody can figure it out, that it is a faulty design within the camera.

Deves ser muito bem pago para fazeres apreciações positivas deste lixo. Aposto que as fábricas já te mandam os textos e tudo.
Comprei a câmara de manhã e devolvi-a à hora do almoço.
A lente só tem definição ao centro. O lado esquerdo da imagem, então, fica todo desfocado.
A resolução real, se for de 5 Megas já é uma sorte…
O ruído só desaparece a 64 ISO e com nitidez suave; é claro que, em compensação, não se distinguem linhas na imagem…
Com a massificação está a destruir-se a fotografia. Produz-se lixo a montante e a jusante e os ceguinhos lá vão consumindo a merda, todos satisfeitos.
