Canon PowerShot SX10 IS review

 

Though a 20x zoom lens may be yawn-inspiring in these days of 24x and 26x lenses, I think 20x is plenty, and perhaps even a bit too long given the difficulty of making a good lens that can cover so broad a focal range as the Canon SX10 IS' 28-560mm...

Speedy performance with solid battery life; articulating LCD; comfortable shooting design; can zoom during movie capture.

No HD movie capture or raw support; a few annoying design quirks; frustratingly narrow lens aperture at maximum zoom.

A nice evolution of the megazoom, the Canon PowerShot SX10 IS delivers some improvements over its predecessor and provides an attractive option for megazoom shooters.

'Super Zoom' Camera Group Test (Q1 2009)

 

You don't need to be on safari to appreciate the benefits of a big zoom range (in fact the target audience for many of the cameras in this group is what's known in the US as the 'soccer mom' market), and in the last few years the super zoom sector has...

Having spent a month or so working with these cameras a few things are clear. First and foremost, the range from 'best' to 'worst' is fairly narrow, and none of the cameras wins on every single criteria. For the most part the results we got from all...

Canon PowerShot SX10 IS Point-and-Shoot Review

 

20x optical zoom lens ; Swivel LCD viewfinder

No RAW mode ; Menu dial is clumsy and fussy

The SX10 IS--lightweight, with a terrific zoom and decent video--is a great megazoom to carry around.

Canon PowerShot SX10 IS review

 

The Canon PowerShot SX10 IS Megazoom camera is the successor to the PowerShot S5 IS. When it comes to appearance, the Canon SX10 IS looks a lot like its predecessor, but if you thought its size would have decreased somewhat, you're wrong; the camera...

Canon continues the trend of the Megazoom cameras with the PowerShot SX10 IS. The future will tell whether or not this is an ongoing process. For now, the combination is a whole lot of optical zoom, compact housing and stabilization, a strong...

Canon PowerShot SX10 IS Review

 

Following on from last year's chunky S5 model for, at the time of writing, some 50 less (a UK SRP of just 359), the new DSLR-styled 10-megapixel Canon PowerShot SX10 IS looks like even more of an attractive proposition. Especially when you consider the...

A sturdy plastic brick of a camera, the Canon PowerShot SX10 IS builds on its S5 predecessor chiefly with that bigger and better lens range, though ease of use has also been improved. What's been kept is the tilt-and-swivel LCD and dedicated record...

Canon PowerShot SX10 IS Digital Camera - First Shots - The Imaging Resource!

 

Canon's PowerShot SX10 IS digital camera replaces the company's previous PowerShot S5 IS model, and indeed both cameras share very similar styling cues. The Canon SX10 has grown a third of an inch or more larger than the S5 in all directions though....

The standard ISO sensitivity range offered by the Canon SX10 is unchanged from the S5, with a minimum of ISO 80 through to a maximum of ISO 1,600. A new high sensitivity scene mode allows this to be boosted to a maximum of ISO 3,200, however. Available...

PowerShot SX10 IS

 

, which is quite similar to the SX10, with the main differences being a larger LCD, faster continuous shooting, a 1080p movie mode, and an HDMI port. Why this model wasn't brought over to the States is unclear

Very good photo quality (in good light) ; Whopping 20X optical zoom lens, with a 28 - 560 mm range ; Optical image stabilization ; Generally snappy performance ; Flip-out, rotating 2.5" LCD display; good low light visibility ; Full manual controls,...

Noise reduction visible at ISO 80; noticeable detail loss above ISO 200 in low light, ISO 400 in good light ; Occasional purple fringing ; Low light focusing could be better ; Doesn't support filters and conversion lenses like its predecessor ; Easy to...

All things considered, the PowerShot SX10 is a very good super zoom camera, and a worthy successor to the PowerShot S5. Sure, it could do a few things better, but even so, the PowerShot SX10 is one of the best big zoom cameras you can find.
