Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Image

Image:
"- I still dont know how to use the panoramic photo feature- it's so hard to do, even after reading the manual."
_
"One must compose images via the screen, a process difficult at best in bright light; * The lens construction is weak."
_
"I can zoom in on the ducklings in the pond across the street and, with the Vibration Reduction feature, get a perfectly clear photo that looks like a close up on my computer screen."
_
"I give this a five start because (a) excellent photo quality, (b) large optical zoom & vibration reduction, (c) large screen, (d) small size (actually fits in my pocket), (e) good construction, and (f) you cannot find me a better camera at this price..."

Lens

Lens:
"Cons: Design - the lense cover broke off after a few bored flicks too many."
_
"One must compose images via the screen, a process difficult at best in bright light; * The lens construction is weak."
_
"The lens do not respond well to artificial lighting, AT ALL, pictures either come out all grainy (if it's slightly dark) or with huge white patches all over if there's a lot of light in the background."
_
"I have had NO issues with image quality in low light, NO issues with dust on the lens, and I hate using a flash anyway so no issues there either."
_
"One must compose images via the screen, a process difficult at best in bright light; * The lens construction is weak."
_
"The good stuff: * lens swivel allows easy picture taking from difficult angles; * 10x magnification; * video with sound; * audio recording."
_
"As always, the lens is distortion free and the photos are clear with great color, but this camera takes zoom to the limits in this price and megapixel range."
_
"It's not mini to carry in a pocket, but the swivel lens makes it easy to take photos high, low or backwards."
_
"Only two negative criticisms: There is no viewfinder and so it's difficult to see your subject in bright sunlight and the lens cap is pretty chintzy, but costs $8.50 plus shipping to replace."

Photo:
"This is a HUGE disadvantage for outdoor photos."
_
"However, after using it for 8 months, I am usually disappointed in my photos."
_
"Low indoor light made for blurry (or sometimes grainy images), even with image stabilization and I had to tinker with a lot of the settings to get half way decent photos and even then they weren't great."
_
"I've travelled with this all over the world and love vacation photos taken of people."
_
"It just takes beautifully exposed photos."
_
"LOVE the distance at which I can get great photos."
_
"- easy to switch between camera mode and viewing photos taken."
_
"- vibration reduction works well to give clear and colourful photos."

Screen

Screen:
"I do like the large monitor screen but I dislike not having a viewfinder."
_
"I own a Sony F707, now discontinued and has since broke and this is the only other camera on the market that has a tilt rotateing screen."
_
"The screen is big and brilliant enough for composing the shot."
_
"In addition, they had an excellent swivel screen (I love swivel screens) and a very clear and decent sized 2.5 inch LCD screen."

Zoom

Zoom:
"The camera is totally unacceptable for outdoor use and who needs a 10X zoom for indoor."
_
"My other complaint deals with the 10x zoom."
_
"I use it for field work using its fantastic zoom and macro capabilities which can bring details quite close."
_
"- the zoom length, combined with small size (compared with current super zoom cameras) remains unbeatable, and is a reason I still havent bought a prosumer superzoom to replace it."
_
"The good things about the S10 are:- great zoom."
_
"I wanted a Camera that was lightweight with good zoom that I could pack hunting to take pictures of wildlife."
_
"I don't expect a zoomed picture to be perfect, but it always seemed that no matter how high I set the quality, results typically required way too much fixing in Photoshop."
