One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I have the previous SX10 and have been very pleased with it. I got the SX10 to replace my previous S5. 

The SX20 added a slight bit more resolution and HD video.  I would like to move up to the new SX30 when a little extra cash comes my way.  Biggest new feature on the 30 is a 35x zoom.  Played around with it today and 35x zoom is pretty amazing.  Across Office Depot could read the stock numbers on boxes.

Me too!

Just got a used SX10 a few weeks ago. A lot of camera for the money.

Ok, I'll review it too...
I've had the SX10 for 3 years now I think and it has been a great camera. The most appreciated feature of the SX-is series is the robust feel and fit in your hand, you won't feel cramped and you won't worry about stuffing it in your fanny pack, mine lives there all day and has come through unscathed. The 20x zoom includes a good wide angle range making it great for shooting kites as well as getting everybody in a picture in a cramped indoors shot. I also appreciate that it uses standard AA batteries, forget to charge? a set of Alkaline's from any store will get you going. The reviews are sort of bland on it "not a standout", but I shopped and held everything else and out of all the camera's that shared the big zoom this is the one that gave me that happy feeling in my hand. And using an SD card, standard batteries and that swivel screen that keeps me from having to lie on my belly for ground level shots took it way over the top for me. If you NEED .raw output just install and boot to the CHDK hack'd firmware and you're golden, the original firmware stays intact.

The SX20 added full 1280 HD video and a better flash range and faster recycle to the SX10.
