I bought the camera to replace a Kodak 850P primarily to reduce noise in low light. Over the past three years I've pretty much bonded with the camera for still photos on a couple of trips overseas plus hundreds of pics here in the States. The barrel distortion can be a little annoying on some shots featuring verticle columns but in general photos are exceptional and the 10 megapixel "limitation" hasn't been a factor What I have found to be an extemely useful feature is the video capability. ...

I got this camera to replace my basic point and shoot small cam. Since the very beginning I was impressed by the quality and the images and the new features I got with the Canon. Great choice if you are a photo enthusiast and plan to step up to a more complete camera.

I bought the SX10 back around the time when it first came out, and I've never regretted it. With the 20x superzoom lens and all of the manual controls, it's one of the closest things you can get to a DSLR without actually being a DSLR. Given that you can't change lenses, the 20x superzoom lens w/ wide angle, macro, and 0cm "super macro" features is very very handy as it gives you a range of focal lengths and focus distances that you'd normally need a DSLR with multiple lenses to get. One of ...

I have not seen any negative reviews of the view finder, only one opinion in answer to my questions that was negative. Mine is quite poor. It produces a very rough view that hinders visability especially in dark areas. Looks like you are looking through a window screen. The LCD is just fine. Finally decided something was wrong with my view finder. I sent it to Canon for repair. It has been accepted. I am waiting to see what they will find. So far the repair center seems OK. They have a fast ...

The Camera has too many options, which a beginner cannot use it like a photo can be edited or changing color of the background. Video recording is good. Battery backup is fine. Problems: I bought this camera last May2009, sold it after 2months. Because I don't feel this one is my babe. Handling this one is very complicated. Most of the photo's I took seems to be blurred or shaky. Even my friends feel the same. I don’t think it is good for money, instead buy an ordinary Cam or spend a $150 & ...

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 ...

Got the camera few weeks back from buydig. It is very good and handy. Had SX2IS before and feel very good compared to the previous one. Photo quality is excellent and enjoying it. Problems: No thread to hold the lens cap to the camera itself, so that we don't lost it.

This replaced my Canon 3is that developed a lens problem. It supplements my 40D very well. Problems? None so far except that Canon must have worked out a deal with Sony when they switched from .WMV or .AVI movie format to .MOV. Those are some large files. Thank goodness for my video converter. I added a Delkin shade to the LCD (had to cut away a little piece of the mounting bracket) and that helps the already low glare LCD out in the sunshine. I also made a homemade stabilizer from PVC ...

I purchased my SX-10 IS as a back-up for my Canon EOS 400D DSLR. Previously, I had been using the Fujifilm FinePix S9600, and whilst I had no complaints, the attraction of a 20x zoom versus a 10x, and image stabilisation as well proved to be the deciding factors. Having now taken hundreds of images, under a wide variety of conditions, I can now say how well it serves. Obviously, it is not a DSLR, and at the extremes of its capabilities it cannot compete, but it is fair to say that it performs ...
