it is weird, but 10 years later i still sometimes enjoy shooting with this camera, utterly obsolete as it is supposed to be. 2mp still does the job for shots destined for web and facebook use, and the s10 still produces good ones! and the built quality - hey 10 years later it is still going strong. i am not sure if my G9 or S90 will be still going in 2017 or 2019 respectively... Problems: battery life has always been very poor.

DIY- make your S10 battery Corresponding to last message post by Dick and many people knows the battery problem, I am going to share my experience about making a replacement/spare battery here. However this is written for people has some knowledge about electronics and how to operate a solder. If you cant follow what I say, its wise to buy the battery pack instead :) Here's the idea: You can buy 5 AAA NiMH battery and connect (solder) them up (so 1.2v*5=6V, same as original battery) Stack the ...

Does anyone use battery packs with the S10 I've bought my S10 in december 1999 and didn't have any problems with it. My indoor pictures with flash became better after the firmware update. BUT battery life: after two months I bought my second rechargeable battery but since the last half year they don't last 20min anymore. My question: does anyone have experience with battery packs AA? Do I need 4 AA of 1,2V=4,8V rechargeable or 5AA 1,2V=6V. How do I connect them to the S10 using the ...

The batteries on this camera suck. After a year of light use, my batteries will not even hold a charge. They are expensive too! Problems: Batteries are faulty

Since purchasing the Canon S10 in Fall 2000, I have taken over 4000 pictures with it. It's most difficult enounter was a 10 week backpacking trip through the mountains and cities of New Zealand. I kept the camera in an extra sock while tramping through the bush, but it definitely took a beating. There are various scratches and some rather large dents in the camera body. One of the dents now causes the card slot door to stay slightly ajar, but not enough to impede my use of the camera. I had ...

I bought my S-10 at the end of its reign as a blowout price, hence I rate it an excellent value. I am very happy overall, for the same reasons as most reviewers, but I must be objective about its shortcoming. The greatest flaw I found is the high contrast that results. A plus is that it comes with a 2-step contrast adjustment, and simple editing software to further adjust contrast. But one may question if some image quality is compromised by adjusting contrast after the image is ...

The S10 is well built and easy to use in the basic mode. The small size is great!!! I do find the menu's a little harder to manipulate than some of the othe cameras I have owned. (JVCGC-S1, Casio QV-8000SX and Olympus C-700) But as a back/ knock around to the C-700n it works well. Problems: I was dismayed to find that the battery was a $10 to $13 throw away!!! On top of that If left in the camera ( and the camera off) for a day or more, the battery light flashes. Also the 650mAh rechargeable ...

This is my first digital camera. I took more than 5000 images the first year. Excellent camera. In most cases the image quality is excellent. However, some action shots in low light are difficult to capture without using the flash to increase the shutter speed. Still shots are a breeze. Macro shots from the S10 are unbelievable - captures every detail. I use the manual picture setting most of the time to adjust white balance to the setting that looks the best. And the menu system makes it ...

My first digital camers, bought the week the S20 came out. Still an excellent camera, though. VERY easy to use, with all the functions you need (white balance, exposure compensation, spot focus) instantly available without needing to go through menus. The menu system is also well designed, and the few extra functions are well thought out and very handy (stitch assist and slide show). Another good thing is that the S10 can use 2CR5 batteries, which you can buy from camera shops. Use it as a ...
