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 ...

Just got the camera today, taking some test shots... * reasonable picture quality (can not compare with DSLR) * camera construction is OK * slow focus in low light will update more in a week. Problems: * NO LENS THREAD FOR FILTER AT ALL * LENS CAN NOT BE PROTECTED BY ANY FILTER.

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 ...

A few weeks on and so far so good. The best 'straight from the camera' shots with any digital camera I have owned. The colours are so authentic and the pictures are very sharp. Even my wife is very impressed and she is not interested in photography. There is minimal need for post shot processing - just a little sharpening in my case. Problems: Only two aspects which nearly made me send the camera back after a few days. It was only the suprerb shots that stopped me. Firstly not being able to ...

I had the S2, S3, S5 and now upgraded to the SX10 and I can see that Canon has new improvements in each new model. It's a fantastic camera and once you learn all the details and how to work with it, you'll have a jewel in your hands. Problems: The LCD could be bigger. The lens cap!! You can easily lose it! Other than that, no more problems.

Bought this model for its wide angle, swivel LCD screen and external flash hot shoe. Otherwise, there are other smaller, lighter models in the market. There is actually a filter thread to mount a 52mm UV. Problems: 1. Too heavy. 2. Purple fringing. 3. Jog dial not sturdy, will accidentally press the 4-arrow functions while turning the wheel. 4. Minimum focus distance: 0.5m in wide angle and 1m in full telephoto. That's just not enough to take close-up even when the macro is activated. 5. Have ...
