Strengths: great pictures, amazing video, awesome zoom, the screen

Weakness: battery life, auto focusing, feels small

love the camera, i've had it for about 2 months and i plan on bringing it on spring break, only hope the batteries don't run out. you can get 2-3 hours of use out of 1 set of rechargeable, so it's always good to keep a spare. the manual is a must or else you will get completely lost. HD video great and also great iso range with decent noise even at iso 1600

SX1 is good for semi-pro and standard use

Strengths: HD Video - RAW stills in a compact form, ease of use, great lens, pretty good IS.

Weakness: Does not make pro type images at ISO 200 or greater.

I have shot tens of 1000s of stills and video over 40 years, in all formats of film and video as well as digital for the past 8 years, I spent 30 years in broadcast TV. Getting my mind wrapped around shooting with this type of camera form has been the biggest hurdle for me. I had to put my SLR and video cameras away for the past 8 months so that I could get my head and body retrained to use this...

Canon PowerShot SX1 IS

THE GOOD: Relatively fast; good HD video; raw file support. THE BAD: Big; quirky interface; some image artifacts. THE BOTTOM LINE: A top megazoom option, the Canon PowerShot SX1 IS offers a 20x zoom lens and HD video, which you cant get in a similarly priced dSLR, and delivers more features and slightly better performance and photo quality than the cheaper SX10 IS.
