photographer in the UK and Ireland is raving about the latest
Canon offerings in professional 'point and shoots'
Powershot SX10 IS and the SX1 IS.
SX10 Features: Powershot SX10 IS Ireland
- 20x wide-angle optical zoom, optical
IS It's not a
mistake. It really does have 20x zoom and wide
angle!! And the IS stands for IMAGE STABILISATION.
When looking for Image Stabilisation, make sure you get Optical
IS. Some cameras simply increase the ISO setting and call
it Image Stabilisation.
- 10.0 Megapixels There are debates raging as
to whether or not a camera with the size of sensor in this range
of cameras actually benefits from 10 Mega Pixels but its what
everyone asks when you say 'I bought a digital camera'. 'How many mega pixels?' If you really want to go megapixel
mad and can afford it...buy the Canon G10. That baby has
almost 15 megapixels. But, the truth is.... you won't need them, and
they might even introduce 'noise' into your photos.
- DIGIC 4 A huge leap from the Digic 2 we
were all raving about a few short years ago.
- Advanced Face Detection and anti-blur technology
- Full manual control This feature will
make professionals out of all of us and will even have
professionals coming into the SX10 IS market!
- 2.5” wide vari-angle LCD The vari-angle LCD
screen is one of the features that makes Canon so unique.
Indispensible if you are trying to get a shot over the heads of
a crowd. Hold camera high with the vari-angle LCD facing
downwards and you can even take movies in that position without
- Multi Control Dial and My Menu
- Movies with stereo sound. It is claimed that the
movies from the Canon Poweshot SX10 IS and the Powershot SX1 IS
are just as good as from a top-end cam-corder.
One of the big news specifications for the
SX1 IS is the new CMOS sensor. I'm going with the SX10 IS
until othes have checked out the CMOS for me. You'll sound
very knowledgable if you pronounce it properly: 'see-moss'
I've already ordered my Canon Powershot SX10
