I have had this camera for about two months. Bought it as a replacement for a Kodak z812 is. This camera can produce great images in auto mode, but where the sx10 is really shines is when you experiment with the other modes. I particularly like the manual mode. Reading the manual a few times is a MUST when using these modes. I had to go back numerous times to figure out what I was doing right/wrong. After taking a few hundred pics experimenting with the various shooting modes, I have ...

I have owned three models in this series, which should give an indication that I really like this level of camera. For me, the best feature is the 20x optical zoom (it gets insane if you add digital). You will get amazing pictures that you never thought possible before. This goes hand-in-hand with the image stabilization, which is absolutely necessary at higher magnifications if you shoot hand-held. They have consolidated what used to be buttons located all over the body, to the control ...

As an upgrade to my powershot A50 which mysteriously stopped working, this is amazing. Problems: I am not impressed by the 20x optical zoom. I've switched off the digital zoom, and tried it in a variety of lighting conditions, but at max zoom, the image is really poor. I'm not quite sure how to describe it, but it looks like the a digital zoom result, or a poor lighting result. Not nice.

Bought this camera for a trip to Costa Rica- mostly birding and nature photography, some scenic, some macro. Also shot some videos. Used it instead of my EOS Xti for almost everything except ultra-macro. Much easier to use than my previous SX 3 IS. Especially like it's ability to spot focus on a small area- useful when shooting subjects (like birds in trees) with distracting surroundings. Perhaps a little heavy. Never bothered with the electronic viewfinder. Scenics were great, even without a ...

This is a great camera. Almost all-in-one camera that you can use for all shooting environment. However, there is no lens filter thread in this camera. I made one for myself: I use some epoxy glue to bond a stepping ring, 58 to 62mm size, inside the Canon Lens Hood (It comes with the camera). It is so perfect that I can made more creative photos by using different 62 mm lens filters. If anyone is interested in doing this modification, Handle the epoxy carefully. DO NOT RUIN THE LENS HOOD.

This is an excellent all in one camera with a great zoom range without the bulk of an DSLR. It's very portable, try to get the same lens range (28mm to 560mm) with an SLR. The swivel LCD screen is great for shooting low to the ground subjects, pets, kids and Macro work. Excelent movie mode. Lens Hood/Shade is a good thing (Probably got this idea from Panasonic FZ18/28) AA Batteries are a plus. Good to have the option to use an additional Flash. Two disappointing things, one is no RAW file ...

I've had the camera about a week. It is a replacement for my S2IS, which co-icidentally croaked the day after I placed the order. I have spent most of my time so far familiarising myself with the multitude of options. These are complicated by a considerable number of post-shot processing options which, for my purposes, are superfluous. I do all this stuff with Photshop. I suppose if you had a need for on-the-spot printing, they might be useful. I haven't used the thing in a wide enough ...
