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.

ONE OF THE WORST BUDGET CAMERAS OUT THERE. PHOTO ARE FUZZY, JUNKY. TAKING PHOTOS ARE NOT INSTANT WITH THIS THING. EVEN WITH CUSTOM CHANGE PHOTO OPTIONS OR BUILT IN AUTO ONE, THE PHOTO QUALITY IS JUNKY.. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GARBAGE

#11 is not true. All my images are clear and well in detail. Unless you’re using the camera improperly (Not letting it focus before taking an image) or have your settings incorrectly, then you may call me a liar. Or maybe you’re taking pictures in bad lighting. Taking photos are not instant? Once the camera focuses I can take a picture. Unless you mean how you can rapid click the button to take multiple pictures at once. The camera can not do that (To my knowledge) however there is a setting where once you push the button it can take a lot (Not sure the max amount) of images rapidly. This camera is not garbage, but its not the best. I don’t like how you can attach a lens to it and also how there is a max record time for each quality setting. I’d rather push the record button once rather than having to get up every ~9 minutes 45 seconds (HD quality) to push the record button again.
