For a hand held zoom it feels and handles like a tank. Very professional looking camera. Good AF, easy menu system and great zoom. I saw little CA to speak of-some red fringing on leaves at high crop and little purple but not too serious (unlike the reviews) Problems: Dialing is a bit awkward

I have had the SX10 IS for about a month now and am very please with its performance. The camera replaces my SX100 IS which was a great camera also. I've had smaller point-and-shoot cameras over the years, so this is my first "heavy weight." It has taken me a little time to get used to the size and weight, but the performance, quality, and features is worth it. I still have not had time to explore all the features of the camera. I know the basics. I have noticed a slight graininess in some ...

Graduated from Canon Powershot A40 (which I bought after retiring AE1 Program) to SX 10 IS. Bought it today and have taken some 25 shots and two movies. I JUST LOVE IT!! I like the resolution, magnification, ability to zoom/pan while in movie mode, and, yes, excellent resolution of the movie mode. It is on pricey side but considering the features, I think it is a good buy. Problems: I don't like the battery changing mechanism. Like A40, this one too closes with some effort. Like A40, I fear ...

A good performing "Super Zoom" with various features at a reasonable price. After owning an S2 for three years I decided to upgrade when the SX10 came out. The optical zoom range is fantastic and the 28 mm wide angle is very handy indoors. Problems: No problems have been encountered since purchase 6 months ago.

Construction: This is a solidly built unit. Yes, it is a bit on the heavy side for a compact, but it's actually a benefit as weight adds to stability. Features: I've owned dozens of digital cameras, and this one has by far the most comprehensive feature set yet. It's simple enough for point-and-shoot situations, while permitting extensive manual control with lots of exposure tweaks and tricks. This is a photo-geek's best friend. The swivel LCD is so cool. It lets you get shots otherwise ...

I have had the SX 10 for a few days; so my review can't be very thorough. I have taken close-ups with the macro mode and pictures with the long zoom. The pictures are excellent. Very sharp and well saturated. Someone might regard them as even too saturated. But I like them. One feature that is not so very good for a person like me (whose fingers are all humbs) is the wheel. Before this camera I had the G9, and its wheel had clear "steps". But I think this issue is one that you get accustomed ...

I have several dSLR's but wanted a small camera I could carry when I didn't need my 5D. I started looking at the SX110 (small, flat, and inexpensive). Which led me to the SX10 and then the G10. Of course by the time I got to the G10 I was feature crazy and way over my budget. I didn't want something that was 'almost' a dSLR. So...I had a discount card for Dell and I wound up getting a great deal on the SX10. I feel I made the best choice. Fairly good feature set for the money. I got it in ...

just bought one today. Here are my first comments: Pro: - Good color and resolution - Good Macro - Good stabilisation system, even at full zoom - Quiet zoom - bigger but well-designed body Samples can be viewed at Flicker page. Problems: Cons: - Noise at ISO400 and over - Control dial a bit awkward, esp when selecting scene modes - white balance not very good in artificial lights. - Hard to close cover after inserting batteries

This is a very different camera then the S2,S3,S5 of the past. If anyone wants the wide angle of a 28mm or the zoom of 560mm in one device, then I would recomend it. If the wide angle or longest zoom doesn't appeal to you, then this my not be your camera. Try it in the store, this is where it won me over. It's not perfect, but I have not found a perfect camera in my 38 years of buying cameras. I had an S2 to for many years and liked it. I like the SX10 and I am happy with it. Problems: No ...

I have owned this camera for a few months now and have taken hundreds of pictures with it. My orginal high rating remains unchanged and it appears from nearly every review so far that the SX1 is is a waste of money given the inferior results overall for more money. Canon may well have a marketing disater on their hands with the SX1is. The SX10is does everything well and my only complaint is the quality of the EVF which is highly pixelated and unrepresentative of the final results. Problems: ...
