Summary: Nice camera and nice camcorder combo...It did not exist until the TX1 and on top of that, small enough to carry in the pocket (about the size of a pack of cigarettes). I've always wished there was something like this and so when I found out that Canon has one, I decided to buy one.
Summary: I bought this camera/camcorder hoping that because of its portability I would actually take more pictures and video of my family. (and I am!) in the past I was reluctant to drag out my considerably larger camcorder. this takes very nice pictures.
nice pictures, pretty good movies, funny control layout

Summary: I've been using this for a month or two and can say it's a fairly decent camera. It works well in day light, and OK indoors. Not at all good as a night video camera. This is the first camera I have owned that only has an LCD screen, and it is not that usable directly in the Arizona sun.
Great little 7.1 MP digital camera & 720p camcorder combo

Summary: I bought the Canon Powershot TX1 in September 2007 to replace both a 3.2 MP Canon S30 still camera and a Sony DV camcorder. I selected the 720p/7 MP TX1 over the 720p/7 MP Sanyo HD700 and 1080i/4 MP Sanyo HD1000 because the TX1 (1) is a digital camera first (with Canon's reputation for photo...
Summary: I sold my Sanyo Xcati HD2 to purchase the Canon TX1 because of its size and optical stabilizer. Many people complaint about its ergonomic design and hard to hold but I have no problem with it (I have smaller hands than most people).
Summary: This is my tourist-use point and shoot camera that can go into my pocket. Small size was key for me, replacing an old Canon 4MP of about this size. My main interest is stills. I wanted this camera for the unique 10x optical capability, with image stabilization, in this very small package.
Summary: I purchased a Canon TX1 and have it about a week now and I'm very happy with my purchase. It's not perfect, it does have some pretty sticky issues, most that I've been able to work around though. The camera itself is a joy to use.
Summary: I Preordered my little new camera...I received it a week earlier than scheduled delivery. As it came out of the box I was surprised to be a little bulkier than my other SD1000 but that something that doesn't bother me a bit. I can carry it on my hand not my pocket. Why did I buy it?
Summary: This is certainly a nice little camera, but as a lefty, I found it extremely difficult to use. The camera's screen flips out to the left hand side of the unit and there is no optical viewfinder. It takes good pictures and shoots very nice video, but not recommended for lefties!
