The Canon PowerShot SX230 HS is a GPS-enabled compact digital camera announced in February 2010. It features a GPS chip that can tag a photo with latitude, longitude, and altitude data, and then later direct a user back to that exact same spot. Featured on the SX230 HS camera is a 12.1MP CMOS sensor, a 14x optical zoom lens, and a 3.0” display with limited touch functionality. Like the ELPH series models that were released around the same time, the Canon SX230 HS supports full 1080p high-definition video capture with audio. Additional features include high-speed burst shooting, slow-motion playback, and digital image stabilization.
