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 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 ...

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 ...

Got it so I didn't have to carry a big DSLR and zoom lenses. Is it as good as my DSLR? No, but it's a great camera 90% of the time, and a lot less to haul around. Sensor size coupled with super zoom has it's limits, but I knew that going in. Only compaint is that I don't consider it user friendly. You get your first hint when the 'little' book (aka User Guide) is nearly 300 pages. Features and settings are so numerous that it's a lot like your photo software. You end up using about 20% of ...

Overall, this camera is very close to perfect, the minor problems may be significant for some users. Let me place my opinions isn some context. I have owned the S3, S5 and now the S10. I currently own the Nikon D90, have owned the Pentax K10 and Canon EOS350d. I have also owned numerous other cameras since I need to stay abreast of what is going on and to stay ahead of my phtography students. The zoom action is fast and the focusing is accurate. However, here is where one of the ...

I purchased the camera a few weeks ago and I can't put it down. It's beats my problem-plagued Nikon Coolpix 5700 hands down. It has a ton of EASY TO ADJUST settings and a nice menu system. The wide angle/zoom lens is great along with the image stabilization. I shot a far away item at 80x (yes, 20x plus optical zoom) with the image in the viewfinder shaking all over the place. Took the shot and the Image Stabilization kept the photo rock solid. I could see the rust around a bolt hole on ...
