A geat affordable full featured 10 Meg camera that also shoots RAW
28 June 2012
Summary: This is a great little camera. I bought it to use on a trip through the Grand Canyon floating down the Colorado river. I did not want to take my Sony DSLR because it 1.) it is expensive and might get wet and 2.) it uses a propietary battery; there is no battery charging in the wilderness.
A good digital camera and an even better camcorder

Summary: I have owned this camera for over 2 years now and I still can't get over the main strengths of this camera - the 1080P HD video and high-end audio quality. Since that time, I have tried numerous point and shoot cameras, as well as dedicated camcorders, for the primary use of recording HD video.

Summary: I too own a SX1 IS. I have had it now for about two years. Was about to go on a 8 day trip back east, excited about the pictures I would be taking. I thought I might check out the camera; you know, clean the lens, add new batteries and such.
I'd buy another in a heartbeat takes the best pics

Summary: I have wanted a nice camera for ever..read an article about Megapixels and said anything over a 6 for amitures was useless. If a 6 takes really good pics then u know a 10 takes even better. I Love this camera, got such a gooood deal. I'm in awe everytime I pick her up to take pictures.
Summary: Picture quality is magnificent. Love using all the features, and there are plenty of them. Size is a little large but not heavy. Great zoom and focus for a non DSLR. The range on the camara flash is good and love the ability for adaptable external flash.
Summary: This is not a new model and it isn't that easy to some of replace missing/lost original accessories such as the remote but it is still a fun camera to use. You still have to buy an adaptor ring in order to use filters which you need and then the hood no longer fits but it is worth a few dollars and...
Summary: I've had this camera for a couple of years now and it has given me some great photographs but only because I have experience with film cameras and DSLR's. I am a biologist/wildlife photographer and I've used it while doing field work with great results.
Summary: Owning a Canon T2i DSLR ($1000) camera already, an SX10 Is ($350), I must admit that I am very impressed at the quality and performance of this Canon SX1 IS camera. Its like the best of the Point and shoot and the DSLR cameras all rolled up in one package.
