  • 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.

Almost everything you'd want

  • Summary: Have done my homework but this camera is difficult for a medium experience person to get quality prints with. Will set on the shelf a lot because of its size and weight.
  • Pros: Have used the SX10 three weeks. Last camera was a Kodak P712. Has all the features one would want. Solid stylistic form, but heavy. Uses an adjustable angle LCD. Is the next step down from a DSLR but has nearly all the capabilities. Wanted a date stamp for my work. photos.
  • Cons: Cannot resize photo file size in camera. Provides 2.8 meg pictures that are unwieldly to upload and edit. No date stamp ifunction available in camera. Only available in the software and my PC isn't fast enough to manage or edit with the Canon software. Software locks and bluescreens often. Have a...

LCD monitor scratches easily, paint wears off

  • Summary: I used the Canon SX10is daily over a period of two months on a trip to Peru, and shot around 600 images during that time. I would call this "normal" use. The LCD monitor on my camera appears to have an anti-reflective coating which resists fingerprints.

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.
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

  • Summary: As always, Newegg rocks!
  • Pros: Awesome camera for someone not ready to go to SLR. Many manual options to play with. Fantastic 20X zoom. Makes great photos for those of us with shakey hands!
  • Cons: My computer won't recognise the camera. No drivers available from Canon or Microsoft. I have contacted Canon USA and will edit my review when they respond.

Good but could be better

Ratrunner, Amazon
18 July 2009
  • 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.
