Wonderful review! Very helpful indeed. I am thinking of getting a new point and shoot camera that has a powerful zoom feature and I can't decide what to get between the Canon PowerShot SX30 IS and Nikon Coolpix P100. Will definitely consider your review and I hope I won't regret my purchase! Thanks! ;)
