Canon PowerShot TX1 Concise Review

Announced back in February just before this year's PMA, the PowerShot TX1 is an unusual offshoot of the hugely popular IXUS / ELPH range that attempts to straddle the divide between digital stills and digital video cameras with its unusual vertical styling and 720p HDTV video capture. Despite its diminutive dimensions (it's little bigger than a pack of playing cards) the TX1 packs a fairly impressive punch, offering a 10x optically stabilized zoom, 7.1MP CCD, vari-angle LCD and 1080i HDTV component video output.

A co-worker has a TX1. It is primarily a video camera.

The dpreview review is done by someone from a still background and completely misses the point of the camera.

Contrary to the dpreview article, it is HD: it does 720p.

It's a cool little thing. Not sure how useful, but it is cool.

Somebody's blogging about it at

I don't know. The 100% crop side by side comparo makes me pretty suspicious of whether or not the TX1 natively records full 1280x720. Really looks like it's interpolated.

I almost had a Canon TX1, but since UPS stole it from me, I ended up ordering an HV10 instead and I'll have real HD footage.
