Re: Any Canon P&S as a dedicated camcorder?

It's not a current canon model, and it's not up to the standards that some posters demand, but the small size and versatility of my Canon TX1 makes it so convenient to have with me wherever I go, that I am happy to put up with the compromises that the designers had to make to get such capability into such a small machine. Its 39-390 mm optical zoom and auto focus is certainly better than the digital zoom and focus on many small, cheap models with only digital zoom that have appeared in recent years.

But your needs may differ.
