Summary: the 'auto' works great but lots of other options if you like 2 try your own things. i would use 'auto' continually except i want 2 take multiple pics in succession, only available in choosing your own options. so i usually see what settings 'auto' has & copy them. but sometimes, i just cant get a clear shot. dont know why it will not focus. must b some settings, but the manual does not explain photo settings. have 2 take a photography class.
Summary: I was searching for a bridge camera that would allow controls like the DLSR cameras at a reasonable price. I had tried two other brands, but found the Canon XR 10 to have the features I wanted. It has all the controls, has a weight that just feels like quality. Pictures are outstanding in quality. The controls take a bit to master, but are possible to get the utmost from the camera.
Excerpt: I bought the camera to replace a Kodak 850P primarily to reduce noise in low light. Over the past three years I've pretty much bonded with the camera for still photos on a couple of trips overseas plus hundreds of pics here in the States. The barrel distortion can be a little annoying on some shots featuring verticle columns but in general photos are exceptional and the 10 megapixel "limitation" hasn't been a factor What I have found to be an extemely useful feature is...
The greatest digitasl camera ever made....WTG CANON
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot SX10IS is absolutely amazing. I zoomed in on the moon and the picture shows actual craters on the moon. A friend of mine also has this same camera and my camera and her camera were used to take all of my wedding photographs.There were over 500 pictures taken for my wedding and only one or two came out blurry. The rest were amazing. I love the swivel LCD screen, it makes your picture taking options so much better.
Excerpt: Mainly I was looking for a camera to take pictures of my art. Most scanners can't take a 36" canvas. Ha! I always heard Canon was the best with detail and colors. I am not a photographer and I wont pretend to be one. I don't think this would be a great camera for someone professional. But if you want to look more like you are, it does the trick. On the outside the camera looks great. You dont feel too much like an amatuer. It had everything I was looking for.
Excerpt: the best point and shoot especially for closwe up/macro photos 10.1 mp and 20x optical zoom. No giant dslrs with multiple lenses to lug around, just 1 relativly smaller camera with almost the same capabilities. if you are in a car and can open the door with a camera and both a wide angle and telephoto lens, it doesn't matter, but if you're on foot and have to carry around all that stuff, this is for you.
Excerpt: My first impression on the SX10 IS was that it was very professional looking. That was intimidating, but as I played with it, I found that it was actually really easy to use! Normally I go for the cheaper point and shoots, but I couldn't resist getting this. The pictures turned out to be great quality, much better than I expected!
Excerpt: This Canon camera has been a great purchase for my family and I. The camera has many, many pros: the only con to this cameral for me is that it is bulky. In some ways I wish I could find one with the same zooming power, and picture quality, in a less bulky package.
Excerpt: The canon sx10is is a great camera. The only drawback I have found with it, is the continous speed at which it shoots. If you set it to be really fast the picture quality goes down considerably. Except for that one flaw this camera is great. It has so many features and I'm still learning. Overall I would give it an "A".
Canon Powershot SX10 IS- for those who can't quite afford an SLR
9 September 2012
Excerpt: My husband and I want an SLR camera BADLY, but just cannot afford one right now. So, for his birthday I bought him the Canon Powershot SX10 IS (at his request). This is a great camera for those who want more features than your standard point-and-shoot, but cannot realize their dream of owning an SLR just yet. This camera has the most amazing macro feature. You can put the lens right on, literally touching, a leaf or bug and it will focus perfectly.
