Canon PowerShot SX10 IS review

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
I have noticed a slight graininess in some low light photos, but then again my
expectations for this camera are quite high. I also have been attempting more more
challenging pictures with this camera, and have been very happy with the result. I
am very pleased with the sharpness and clarity of each photos. Of the hundreds I
have taken in the past month, I don't think I have had one bad one, or one that
could not be used.
I purchased a lens cap keeper or tether for a couple of bucks, because I am afraid
of losing the lens cap. Even though I am familiar with canon cameras, it still took
me a little time to learn how to access things, and am still learning.
The movie mode is excellent, and the sound indeed CD quality in stereo. I have
used the camera just to make a sound recording, processed through my computer.
I was somewhat familiar with the S5, and feel that while in many ways similiar to
the SX10 IS, the
build and construction of the SX10 IS is far superior.
After seeing this camera in operation and its pictures, I believe that I have found the
camera that gives the quality I am looking for, without having to purchase or lug
around a SLR and its lenses. I highly recommend this camera.


None so far.
