Summary: The Canon PowerShot TX-1 is an extremely versatile compact still and video camera. I was initially looking for a compact unit that combined good quality imagery with a cool looking package on a budget. What I got did not disappoint. First, let me tell you what this isn't. This little machine is not made to meet the rigorous demands of even semi-professional photographers and videographers. This unit is made for FUN!
Summary: Great lenses and works great with the Stereo Data Maker (SDM) 3D system - just download the program onto your SD card(s), insert the card(s) in the camera(s)and you can take perfectly synched 3D stills and movies - the program on your card does all the work and all you need is a switch which you can make for a few dollars or purchase (see SDM on google)- only works with certain Canon cameras.
Summary: The ideal vacation camera. It is one of the first SDLR cams that truly shoots HD as well as taking pics. The small size however does not allow for a lot of panning etc. as any movement is immediately picked up and might make spectators dizzy later. So a small monopod or tripod are a must. I only shot video so cannot say anything about the pics. The fact that it is metal (aluminum) adds to its appeal as far as I'm concerned, and it is the size of a pack of playing cards.
Summary: I bought the Canon TX-1 while planning a trip to Yosemite National Park. I wanted a compact, light weight camera (its about the size/weight of a double deck of playing cards) that would take good quality video (it takes 720 HD) and still pictures (it does 7.1 MP). I was also looking for a camera that would be smart enough to have both automatic "point and shoot" settings with image stabilization (for pictures on the fly) and extensive manual control of features like...
Summary: The Canon PowerShot Digital Camera TX1 7.1MP with 10x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom was a Christmas gift to my husband from myself. My husband is a sound engineer and does frequent movies of his work. He absolutely loves the camera and has been going around filming everything! You should have seen his face when he opened his gift! Priceless!
Summary: For the price and size this camera really can't be beat. The still camera images are crystal clear and the 720p video is great for the price. Add on top of that that the camera is small enough to fit in your pocket and you whave a winning combination. I take this camera with me everywhere and use it all the time, and if was any larger I probably wouldn't... but it is perfect for the on the go amatuer.
Summary: I knew what kind of camera I wanted and priced the TX1 out on various website and found it on buy.com at the lowest price. I received the camera relatively quickly and it was new in the box and works great.
Summary: Great little camera takes awesome 16X9 photos and records HD videos in 1280 x 720 with 16bit stereo sound. The best part is that the microphone has an auto level control so if the sound gets to loud the level drops so the sound never gets distorted, Awesome for concerts and shows in parks.
