Tuned for both stills and video, the Canon PowerShot SX1 continues a long line of Canon long-zoom digital cameras, but with a new twist: it uses a 10-megapxiel CMOS sensor instead of a CCD.
Though this doesn't seem to improve the Canon SX1's image quality, it does enable both "Full HD" 1080p video capture and a still-image framerate of up to 4 frames per second. Its 20x zoom lens has a very useful range from 28 to 560mm equivalent, and the Canon SX1's utility is further enhanced with a 2.8-inch, wide-screen, swiveling LCD for easier image composition from odd angles. Very well built, the Canon SX1 is also fairly expensive. Is it worth the extra money? Click here for our review of the Canon PowerShot SX1 IS.
