  • Excerpt: Of all the Canon cameras (6) compacts and SLRs I have owned this is undoubtedly the most disappointing. This is not a camera you can give to someone in AUTO mode and know that the result will be good. Chances are it will be grainy, especially in lower light conditions. When you shoot in high contrast situations, expect all your straight edges throughout the frame to have green and magenta edges (chromatic aberration.

A Step Back From the SX10IS; Superior Zoom, Poor Image Quality

Ryan S. Sarver, Amazon
3 November 2010
  • Summary: About a year and a half ago I purchased the Canon SX10IS, but even before that I was an owner of the S3IS--in many ways the predecessor to the SX Superzoom line. The SX10IS produced some amazing shots of my trip to Italy, New York City's Halloween Parade, and just general scenery I shot in my spare time.

Nothing but smoke and mirrors......

  • Summary: I purchased a new SX30is as a replacement and upgrade to my SX20is I had for 8 months. The 24 mm wide angle and 35X optical zoom looked quite appealing to me however reading the fact the megapixels had been bumped up to 14.1 (from the 12.1 in the SX20is) on the same image sensor had me concerned about the picture quality this new Canon SX30is had to offer.

Good pictures, but slow focusing and shots. LCD failed so returning.

  • Summary: Bought this camera after much research. I had a Canon Ixus point-and-shoot camera for many years which only had a 3x zoom, and wasn't overly impressed with its photos but did take lots of video which seemed very good for the size of camera - eventually its died so I thought I'd go for something with better zoom, better photos and more manual adjustments.

Chromatic Aberration Problems

David Hampshire, Amazon
18 June 2011
  • Summary: I have spent some time trying to sort out the chromatic aberration (CA) which causes purple and green fringing around bright objects or for example leaves in a bright sky. This is particularly noticeable at wide angles. Fortunately it can be largely corrected if you have a suitable software package (e.g. Panotools as an add in to Adobe Photoshop Elements) with the resultant photos being OK.

Great Zoom - Can Produce Awful Images

A. Alves-Areias, Amazon
13 October 2010
  • Summary: I had this camera for less than a fortnight and even then I didn't take it back earlier because I wasn't able to get to the shop. Yes, it's got a great zoom (it got a star for that). It is very impressive and images at 840 mm come out ok considering the distance. It's also got a great wide angle at 24 mm, which is welcomed. The stabilisation also manages well and hand-held shots at full telephoto aren't impossible.

  • Excerpt: Брать только фанатам суперзума или паппарции))
  • Pros: Отличное качество видео и звука на нем (стерео) Просто обалденный зум!!
  • Cons: ШУУУММ!!! Он везде! Даже в яркий солнечный день на темном участки будет ОН!! Не поможет ни снижение ISO, ни уменьшение размера кадра. А все из-за крошечной матрицы. А еще абберации...

  • Excerpt: не советую покупать вообще. можно найти зеркалку, которая будет несколько дешевле этого агрегата, да и снимать будет по лучше.
  • Pros: первое время после приобретения я была в восторге от аппарата. радовало буквально все: колоритность фото, множество настроек и эффектов,хорошее качество при макро съемке, заряда батареи хватало на много. 35-ти кратный зум привел меня в восторг. на протяжении всего времени пользования очень радовал поворачивающийся дисплей. но не все так гладко и как казалось..
  • Cons: после первого же дня усиленной съемки пришла к выводу, что аппарат чересчур тяжелый и долго держать его на весу устанут руки. прилагающийся в комплект ремешок оказался очень тоненьким и неудобным, из-за этого и на шее его носить тоже не удобно. после недели пользования оказалось что не такое уж и хорошее качество у фотографий. скачали фото на комп и просто обалдели (в хорошем смысле слова) от качества, точнее от его отсутствия. при просмотре фото на фотоаппарате все в...
