Summary: This camera is amazing. The zoom is incredible and picture quality just beyond words. This is the best camera I have owned. However it does eat up the batteries. I invested in rechargeable ones and always bring extras with me other than that just perfect!
Summary: * Large screen size * Light and portable * 10x zoom 6-60 aperture f2.8-4.3 * ISO from 80-1600 * Fast shutter response * Macro mode for occasional flower and other close-ups. * 8 mpix processor
Pros: On vacation not a tiny rectangular box a lady can easily carry in her purse but still very light and portable to carry around., Easy to operate menu settings, Large viewing screen of 3" fore easy viewing., Good size zoom with relatively wide aperture for low light situations., Low ISO for fine-gr...
Cons: ISO settings work well up to 400. When set to 800 & 1600 can see much more grain. ISO settings fixed at 80, 100, 200, 400, 800 & 1600. Definitely not an SLR where you can get in between settings., F-stop only go up to F8. When shooting macro or scenic shots with people you may want to set to F11 ...
Summary: This is a great camera for the pro/am shooter that wants a little, but sturdy camera around. I normally shoot with a Canon Mark II, so I'm sometimes reluctant to shoot with smaller cameras, but this is a great deal for the price and features.
Summary: Canon PowerShot SX100IS 8MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Silver) I previously owned a Canon Powershot S3 and loved it, however it was a bit too big and I wanted more mega pixels so I upgraded to a Powershot SX100. The camera is great and fairly easy to use.
Summary: This takes great shots and the resolution is excellent. The only downfall is you have to manually change the iso speed to take really fast action shots. It would also be nice if it had rechargeable batteries. For the price, it's a deal!!
Summary: I have owned the Canon SX100IS camera for two months. I put it to good test on our Alaska cruise and took about 1000 pictures. I would like to give this camera 3.5 stars if I could. The 10X optical zoom is wonderful. It works great and is really handy.
Summary: Bad points: The function button on the back is right where I rest my thumb and have accidentally changed settings. One needs to manually raise the flash which is a little cumbersome. Camera (in silver) is very slippery - easily dropped. Time for saving photos is long - many missed shots.
Summary: This camera fills in the areas that I felt were wanting with my last two Canon PowerShot cameras, but is still just as intuitive in operation. Although this camera has a far more powerful zoom and more SLR style features than a typical point and shoot, it is laid out in a way that allows the user to...
