Ease of Use

This was an upgrade from my Canon S5 IS which was also a good camera. I love the super macro mode on this camera. It takes great pictures an inch away as well as 5 miles away. The camera focuses quickly except when you are using digital zoom beyond 20x. I disable the digital zoom and use croping instead.

As good as it gets.

by Rich on 11/9/2008

I was looking for an automatic camera that was as close to an SLR as I could find and this one fit the bill. I can use its automatic features and let the camera set the exposure or I can experiment and set them myself. I thought that I might want the ability to add lenses but there's no need. I like the hotshoe feature since the built in flash sometimes casts a shadow on close ups. And finally, the price and service at was excellent.

I love my Canon!

by Newt on 12/1/2008

I had a 5si and loved it till it was stolen, (darn airlines). Replaced it with this one and love it even more. Never thought I would use the opening and titlable LCD screen, but wow was I wrong. I use it all the time for different angles and even more for covert and non-posed photo's. You can open the screen, and be snapping away while holding the camera at waist level. The controls are very easy to use and the photo quality is fantastic. I shoot a lot of areas where the subject is in low light and back lit, so the manual features are really important to me. Only one con; having a little trouble getting the auto rotate to work. Probably me not doing something right. There is a bazillion on-off switches and selections adding to the learning curve. For a plinker like me, this camera is absolutely fantastic.

The PowerShot SX10 IS is equipped with a 20x Optical Zoom lens with a focal length of 5.0-100mm (35mm film equivalent: 28-560mm) that allows you to shoot any scene from wide-angle to telephoto. The camera uses a VCM (Voice Coil Motor) for high-speed, quiet, energy-efficient lens movement with precise control. Focal length is conveniently indicated on the lens barrel.
The PowerShot SX10 IS is equipped with many of the same features as a higher-end camera: an ultra-powerful zoom, eye-popping resolution and advanced picture-improving technology. 10.0 megapixels of resolution give your photography incomparable depth and ensure that any section of any shot can be enlarged and cropped with no loss in quality when you edit the image and even in large printout. It creates crisp, clear 13" x 19" posters.
The camera's 2.5-inch LCD screen gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient. Clear and bright, it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light. It also has an electronic viewfinder that provides sharp images when you shoot close-up with Super Macro shooting mode.
Canon's proprietary DIGIC Image Processors have long set its cameras apart from the competition, and the new DIGIC 4 sets the bar even higher. Faster, more accurate noise reduction delivers better image quality, even at high ISO speeds.
With Movie Snap, you'll never miss a perfect still shot just because you're in the middle of shooting a movie. Simply press the shutter to record a high-resolution still.
The PowerShot SX10 IS supports the MOV video format which reduces data volume by approximately 60%. This allows you to record longer movies while maintaining optimal image quality.
Now you're free to concentrate on what really counts - your subject. With the large, simple-to-operate Mode Dial, all you have to do is turn to the setting that best matches the scene you're viewing through the lens. The PowerShot SX10 IS does the rest. It chooses the perfect exposure, aperture and flash. Or, if you want to flex your creative muscles, choose Manual Control and do it all yourself. You've got Special Scenes Modes to handle a wide range of common shooting situations - effortlessly.
The PowerShot SX10 IS's Print/Share button makes direct printing easier than ever. Simply connect the SX10 IS to a Canon PIXMA Photo Printer or SELPHY Compact Photo Printer or any PictBridge compatible photo printer, press the lighted Print/Share button and print! Also use the Print/Share button to transfer images to a computer (Windows and Macintosh).
