  • Excerpt: I have this camera since last year, upgraded from a S3 IS. I was expecting that Canon must solved some problems but not, they continue the same. Under low light conditions - if you arent under a bright cloudy day - the precision of the focusing is very weak if you are using the zoom among 10x. If your subject also is walking in/out your direction the focusing also dont works well because its slow.

Nice, but some drawbacks

James Ellis, Amazon
5 June 2009
  • Summary: Nice colors. Great zoom. Quiet & smooth zoom operation. Decent view finder with diopter. Lots of functions. Decent low light performance. Improved video performance. Pictures are sharp and clear up to 400 iso. After that, typical noise visible. Stereo sound. Uses 4 AA batteries instead of 2 thank goodness. Too many buttons in places where accidentally pushed too often & too easy. Easy to block the auto focus beam with your finger. Autofocus has been inconsistant.

  • Summary: The camera makes a clicking sound when you slightly rotate it. After calling around too several photo stores I was told this was normal. [...] Not all pictures are clear.
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

Confused

Holls, PhotoAlley.com

  • Summary: I thought "moving up" from a Kodak Easyshare to a Canon SX10IS would be delightful....however, I am not enjoying the camera at all. It is difficult to take a crisp clear non blury picture in a room full of people. It is also difficult for it to focus in low light. I am sure I will not keep this because this camera has taken the enjoyment out of taking pictures....and I love taking pictures. Maybe "moving up" isn't always better it is just complicated.
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

  • Summary: If you have time in life, then it is the camera for you! However, if your a mom of 3, with no time to spare, this camera is way too complicated to take a simple, quick shot. I bought this camera for the zoom, which is wonderful on this camera, but the rest is just too complicated unless you have tons of spare time to devote to learning this camera inside and out.

Photos a bit of a "Hit & Miss! "

  • Summary: I have had this camera for about 18 months and I have taken some great pictures, but also some poor ones. Close up seems to focus great but at distance the focus can be very soft. I'm no expert but to be honest I have taken better pictures with my old Kodak DX6490. Maybe I was expecting too much from this camera.

Brilliant versatility, but pictures a bit disappointing.

P. Stephens, Amazon
12 April 2009
  • Summary: I've had this camera for around four months now, and my conclusions are that while it offers fantastic versatility, the pictures are a bit disappointing. The 20X zoom and very effective image stablisation means that you can take everything from wide-angle interiors to 500mm (equivalent) hand-held shots, all without swapping a lens, which is great.

Good but could be better

Ratrunner, Amazon

  • Summary: This is the fourth Canon camera I have bought (over 3 decades) which does I think say something about the quality of their products. For me it is a good step up from my Powershot A710 IS in terms of specification, however, I have to say that the controls are less well laid out than the A710.
