Good camera for that price range
I bought this camera in a rush when my Canon SX70 stopped working in a trip. It should be around $300 but I paid $395 in Kununurra where there is only one shop selling cameras. Of course, it doesn't work as well as SX70. It includes that it doesn't focus well on where you would like to shoot. When the light is darker, the quality is not even as good as a mobile camera.
However, I do like this camera a lot for the following two points.
1st: It is much lighter and smaller than SX70;
2nd: With some a small version of camera, it goes up to 45 opt...
Purchased in June 2021 for $395.
You won't get a better camera in this price range
This camera is great. At under $300AUD. Nothing else comes near it for value. I know, I've been looking for almost 3 years.
Light weight with an excellent though not silent, 45 x optical zoom, producing fine quality photos, it will suit all but pros (who might need; super enlargements, more manual control or super-fast action).
You can set it on "Auto" and have your easy to use "point and shoot" (which we use) or "Live" which gives you the ability to change more settings for more technical and artistic shots. As with most digital cameras, it doesn't always know what to focus on but with time to re-frame the shots, we usually get a good one
We've used it on 2 road trips now and are really happy with the results.

Canon PowerShot SX 430 IS
Displaying - Memory Card Error
Memory Card Locked - How do I unlock it ?
If you look at your memory card there should be a tiny slider button at top left (as you read the brand label). There will be an even tinier "lock" sign and usually down is locked. Some times it clic...ks in at a mid point so you need to make sure the button is pushed right to the top to unlock. (the lock, which you will probably never need, is to stop things from accidentally being deleted.)
