Summary: This is a great little camera. I just returned from a cruise to New England and Canada and I carried this camera in my pocket most of the time. It works great in Auto, but you are able to get better results, often, by making your own settings.
Summary: My second of the same camera( due to operator, not camera). I wanted a high quality good point and shoot to fit in my pocket. The best you can buy without going to the bulky DSLR. I recognize my laziness. If I will not carry the camera with me, I can not get the picture!
Excerpt: Great to carry every day. Just like carrying my old Leica M2, can control most everything manually from the exterior of the camera with the lens dial or simple buttons on the rear of the body.
Summary: I have two of these cameras and in some ways they are the best cameras I have owned and I've had many excellent ones. The Canon S10 takes great pictures, as simple as that. Pictures as good as the big, heavy Nikon D10 I used to lug around. Maybe better than that camera!
Excerpt: The best digital compact camera I've had, so far. Excellent in low light - rarely ever I use flash. Very intuitive/easy to use camera - press "on" -> wait 2 sec. -> point&shoot. Excellent image quality, in general. Fast operating even when shoting RAW images ! Very good battery life.
quality images with total control that fits in your pocket. awesome.

Summary: quality images with total control that fits in your pocket. awesome. this is the photographers point and shoot, but friendly enough for an amateur or beginner. don't know how you could be disappointed with this camera. i guess it could get smaller, maybe.
Excerpt: Excellent for compact at low ISO. I 've been using it for 5 months (i bought one second hand for 200€). I also have a Canon 500D 18-200IS. I ve ended up using more the S90 as I can always carry it with me. It is a good camera compared to all compacts.
Summary: I know Canon has a newer S95 model ($400), but this camera is really, really sweet. The photo quality is fantastic! Don't be fooled into thinking more megapixels is better - this 10 megapixel sensor is PLENTY and with the larger sensor and lower density pixels, the quality improves.
Summary: Overall, this is probably the best pocket camera on the market for the money. If you need/want the manual controls and best possible image quality in a compact camera, this is the one for you. If you don't need all those controls, get one anyways - you'll love the output from this camera.
Pros: durable, good IQ, front control dial, WB trim, good colors out of the camera, sharp, very customizable, fast lens, good zoom range, fun to use
Cons: limited zoom range, only 15s long exposures, AV mode only allows 1s shutter speed, slippery finish, rear control dial spins easily
