I don't know if this camera is still around but I'll make some comments anyway. I've had my TX-1 for four years or so and am very pleased with it. I've taken approximately a zillion photos, using it mostly for point and shoot outdoors, but it has oodles of features I've never used. I especially like the articulated LCD and can't imagine having a camera without one as I rarely shoot with the camera directly in front of my eyes. I'm very surprised this isn't a more ubiquitous feature. Also, ...

Can be summerized in one sentence - Built like a gem, video excellent, stills very good, compact size, good for occasional/outdoor use. A sharp 10X lens is its most valuable asset. A beauty overall. Generally speaking, Canon makes best (above 9/10 rating) professional DSLR & point and shoot, Sony best entry level DSLR's and Nikon best prosumer DSLR cameras. However, the difference is not that much between some other makes like Olympus, Panasonic and Pentax, at lower ratings (below 9/10) - ...

Very good: Size, 10xZoom, movie quality, picture quality. Could be better: Flash, avaiable features in 16:9 mode, screen size No problems with ergonomics, find it easy to use. Combined with the S5IS, the dream team is at your hand. But size/features is really what makes this camera great in everyday use.

Anyone who did their homework would love this camera. It's exceptionally well built and lots of fun to use. The memory gobbling video and short battery life are easy and inexpensive to deal with. The LCD, though only 1.8" is very bright and usable once you've got some experience with it. The videos are sharp on HD TV. The zoom is smooth and precise with no autofocus problems. I like the idea that it plays slideshows that include both stills and video clips. Problems: My only problem with this ...

Compared to conventional high quality point and shoot cameras, this camera does involve trade-offs. The good: 10x zoom, impressive movies, especially for something this small. For the problems, see below. I"m not unhappy that I bought this camera but as soon as one comes out that has close to the similar specs with more conventional low light performance I'll probably dump it. Problems: The bad: very poor low light photo performance extending into the medium light range. The flash is very ...

The Canon PowerShot TX1 is a very pocketable 7.1 MP digital Point & Shoot camera configured in an upright digital video camera orientation. Canon added to the list of usual PowerShot series controls such video camera attributes as a 10x optical zoom lens, image stability, a flip & rotate LCD viewfinder, and video as high as 1200 x 720 resolution @ 30 fps. The resulting product is a Point & Shoot camera with an incredibly capable lens that not only produces the expected high quality photos, ...

It's a tough call for me to decide if I am keeping this camera. There are a few promises and a lot of compromises. As most reviewer already reported, the video performance and the size are the best features of the camera. It's the only pocketable camcorder with decent video quality out there. The recorded video is as good as any low to mid price camcorder even in indoor lighting. The picture quality is better than many pocket size point and shooters except for flash photography. I can ...

10X zoom, CD quality audio, optical IS, HD video, super macro & compact size. These are the features that lured me. In good light, video on this machine is wonderful. Playback on a Plasma TV is very impressive. In low light, the video performance drops dramatically but I knew that going in. Photo quality is very good too. For something I carry with me all the time there is nothing better. The ergonomics take some getting used to but after a while you will appreciate the unique design. I'm ...

Nice specs, disappointing results. Pros: Eye catching looks, solid construction, innovative features, latest imaging chip and firmware. Cons: Image and movie quality were demonstrably worse than my old digital camera. Terrible noise levels, flawed red-eye reduction design, large blurry videos. Problems: An amazing amount of "low light" noise, even in settings with very strong light. For some reason, activating image stabilization actually reduced image quality by introducing blur. I've ...
