Canon PowerShot SX10 IS review
Oct 14, 2009

I have this camera since last year, upgraded from a S3 IS. I was expecting that Canon must solved some problems but not, they continue the same. Under low light conditions - if you arent under a bright cloudy day - the precision of the focusing is very weak if you are using the zoom among 10x. If your subject also is walking in/out your direction the focusing also dont works well because its slow. I noticed also a lack of sharpness on the edges of the field when using the zoom, at average power.
I like to take candid pictures and the vary angle LCD is a great advantage that this camera offers, this is the motiv I choose it and the price also. I know that we have the quality for what we pay for and for those that wish a great zoom p&s camera will have to have very patience and take many shots to choose one with suficient quality if use this camera. If you not use much zoom (till 4x ) the answer is quick and the quality of the pictures are very good.
Resuming, if you are very exigent about the quality and wishes to use much zoom I recomend think twice before choose this camera.

Problems:

The autofocus is imprecise and slow when using much zoom if the light condition isnt execelent.
Lack of sharpness on the edges of the field when using much zoom.
