Everything I hoped for!

archieq1, Ebay
8 June 2010
  • 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. Lucky enough to find a bargain on eBay and also found out that it was actually a discontinued model.

fits in my purse !

  • 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. I have a video of my daughter singing on youtube if you search under "emily sings at keikos recital" you can see the video quality.

Great little 7.1 MP digital camera & 720p camcorder combo

Amazon Customer, Amazon
24 March 2008
  • 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 quality) and a camcorder second, (2) has the smallest form factor (slightly thicker than Digital Elph), and (3) has excellent build quality.

"Once you get use to the unorthodox design you will truely enjoy the versatility this camera offers"

  • Pros: Very solid feel & build, easy menus, fantastic zoom, extremely compact & versatile
  • Cons: Too small for larger hands, video in low light is below average, video on memory sticks can be a pain to download if you do not buy (very) high speed memory

World's Most Compact HD Camcorder

C. C. Doan "mr wizard", Amazon
26 December 2007
  • 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). Other HD camcorders may have much better picture quality but I'm happy with that of the TX1. Of course you have to give up something to gain something else.

Really Nice

  • Conclusion: I like this camera. It is very lightweight and easy to use. It is also compact and I like to take this camera with me everywhere I go.
  • Pros: It is lightweight and compact. I can just throw it in my purse and away we go.
  • Cons: The side piece is very flexible. I am surprised that it hasn't ripped off yet.

Great hybird with a few flaws

H. Kim "mac geek", Amazon
28 August 2007
  • 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. Great menus, easy to use, even in manual mode, and my smaller hands don't make this the ergonomic nightmare that tech critics are panning the camera work.

Great camera, but Lefties beware!

Edward Cruz "Pacifickarma", Amazon
29 May 2007
  • 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!
