Cons: According to a lot of reviews I'd read before buying my PowerShot, the main gripe is that the lens cap can become lost because it's not attached to the camera body., I overcame this by heating the point of a small guage knitting needle and making a hole in the lens can just under the 'C' of Canon...
Summary: REALITY CHECK! I am a "camera freak," I just love the things. I own the SX10 (and previously a stack of other digital cameras ... starting with that SONY MAVICA with the 3.5" diskettes a LONG time ago), and love it. I previously owned the S5, and it was also excellent.
Summary: I've had my SX10 for about a week and am very impressed with it's versatility. I tend to read all the user reviews I can before making a purchase and did that with the SX10. I also tested the camera with my own card in a local store and compared video and stills on the same card to the Pany TZ28.
Summary: I have to admit, I'm a point and shoot type of person who likes a small digital camera that I can carry in the pocket of my jeans or in my purse so it's always handy. I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money on a camera and have to spend hundreds on extra lenses.
Summary: I am stepping up from the Canon A80 which I love but started having problems recording movies. The Canon A80 was my first digital camera and it was good but the one thing I dislike about it was the delay to take several pics in a row.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Easy to Keep Clean, Easy To Use, Great Picture Quality, Strong Construction
Summary: So many things in one relatively small camera, wow! Let's start with the lense. Very wide angle, careful to keep your foot out of the picture all the way to 20X zoom. Stood on the beach shooting an island a mile away and zoomed to people on the island beach not visible with the unaided eye without...
Summary: After many weeks of research and reading of reviews on multiple different brands and models of cameras, trying to find a replacement for my Sony P72 which I was unhappy with before it broke, I settled on purchasing the Canon SX10IS.
Summary: I've been a (more or less) serious photographer for almost 70 years, and an earlybird with practically every technological advance in photography since then. In other words, I've seen 'em all. Digital is the great revolution -- nothing in the past comes close to that leap forward.
