The SX210 packs a 14x optical zoom in a compact camera frame, but doesn't make for very good jokes.

What's purple and can see things a long way away? Give up? It's the Canon PowerShot SX210 IS, of course. The SX210 packs a 14x optical zoom in a compact camera frame, but doesn't make for very good jokes.

Not to be confused with the Canon's own IXUS 210, the SX210 is the follow-up to the Canon PowerShot SX200 IS. It's a more rounded piece of work, adding an undulating silver trim, although it loses the SX200's signature bent hand grip. It comes in this fetching purple, hideous gold, or boring black.

Outcry over iPhone 'Error 53' and bad USB Type-C cables
