Canon PowerShot SX10 IS review

One of two cameras replacing the S5 IS, the SX10 IS offers 10.0 megapixels and 20x stabilised zoom
|Pros:||Performance, build quality, features, image quality|
|Cons:||Price, viewfinder, no Raw mode|
For the past five years the Canon S-series of image-stabilised superzoom bridge cameras has been the benchmark by which other cameras of this type have been judged. They have combined powerful high quality lenses and powerful sensors with impressive features including video recording with stereo audio, articulated monitor screens and SLR-like handling.
The Canon PowerShot SX10 IS is a supremely versatile camera that offers a wealth of useful features. Although its complex controls may be a bit of a handful for inexperienced users, keen photographers will appreciate its creative options, fast performance and superior image quality, and its excellent video capabilities are also very useful. However the lack of Raw mode, less-than-brilliant EVF and hefty price tag will put some people off.
