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.

DCRP Review: Nikon Coolpix S630

The Canon PowerShot SX1 isn't just a super zoom digital camera -- it's also a video camera capable of recording Full HD video. In the past, hybrid cameras have been just so-so, but the PowerShot SX1 takes good quality stills and very nice HD movies. Add in a rotating LCD, manual controls, snappy performance, and lots of point-and-shoot features, and you end up with a hybrid camera...

Canon PowerShot SX1 IS Review

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...
