The canon powershot SX100 IS Is a good camera for beginners.

fallenstar, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: The Canon Powershot SX100 IS is a good camera for beginners. People that want pro quality pictures easy will love this camera. With a zoom lens of 10 x15 is really nice on zooming in on a band at a concert if you're too far back. The face finder will make it easyer to find your daughter in a dance recitle or your son in a group of kids playing soccer. Downside, the wheel on top is easy to turn and can turn without you knowing you've gone from auto to manual.

"Lens error for the third time will cost me a new camera"

  • Pros: The camera is technically a mixed bag. It does everything you want except if you bump it or get dust into it. Then you are in trouble.
  • Cons: The lens error has occurred three times since Oct 2008. the first two times i was lucky and the tech guys fixed it. on the third time, the guys could not fix it. Compare this with my other Canon powershot A470 which continues to work just fine.

"Daylight output is very good"

  • Pros: Best part of this camera, its very easy to handle. From the usability point of view, it has lot of good features. Best points r Good monitor, auto sensors to know user's angle.
  • Cons: in night or in dull light output is not at all good. The amount wat we are paying for this, not completely worth. because same output u can get in Canon's other low models.

Heavy and Big!

Lisa D. ANGELO "L DANGELO", Amazon
26 March 2008
  • Summary: I haven't even had a chance to download my photos from my new PowerShot, so no comment on its performance. But I must say that I didn't realize that the camera would be so big and heavy. It's so difficult to tell online. I had a Canon SureShort before this and just expected it to be about the same. WRONG! This is as heavy as my new camcorder and almost the same size. No more slipping it into my purse. Beware!

Puzzled

L. Penman, Amazon

  • Summary: To start off with, my dislike of this camera has been made a bit better after I saw a few pics taken by Nikon P90. So, why don't I like it? Basically, the noise levels. I just can't stand them, as soon as ISO 200 it is quite visible, that is not at 100% either, just opened with "Windows Photo Viewer" and it is even apparent on pictures taken with the camera at 90 degrees to its normal position, say a full body length shot.

  • Summary: Picture quality for me must be the over-riding factor when buying a camera. Handling issues can be irritating, but are usually adaptable. This Canon's pictures are, in the main, spot on. Excellent sharpness, lovely colour rendition and decent exposures. Other aspects, such as noise and noise suppression appear to have been compromised somewhere near the centre of each - that is to say that at 400 ISO for example, images are noisy, but they do contain much more detail...
  • Pros: Overall picture quality is very good indeed
  • Cons: Flash recycling time overly long

  • Summary: If you wanna take a shot outdoor, you definitely get a very suitable camera with good image quality and considerably low price. But you should be desperate with image quality when you take a shot indoor or in poor light condition, it really makes me down! They said that it has image stabilizer, but in 10x zoom mode, you can sense that such a thing doesn't exist!!! Image quality in 10x zoom dramatically decreases, unbelievable bad!!!
  • Pros: Compact, good image quality, price
  • Cons: Poor at 10x zoom mode, LCD has nothing but 3 inches size

No Viewfinder !!!

R. WILLIAMSON, Amazon
17 June 2008
  • Summary: Unlike Canon's excellent A-Series, the SX100 doesn't have an optical viewfinder, rendering it unusable in many lighting conditions. This is very unfortunate, as its otherwise an excellent camera and has a better lens and flash. I'd recommend the Canon A720IS instead.
