Summary: I have owned this camera for over 7 years now and it has never let me down. Back in 2007, you didn't have a lot of options for hybrid camera/video recorder. There were a couple, but the megapixels were low or it had slow shutter speed.
but it has given excellent service for a few years

Summary: 'Can't remember when I purchased this camera, but it has given excellent service for a few years . . . literally hundreds of video clips and thousands of still pictures. I carry it with me to the work site (I'm building a rather large house, and keep a continuing record of the progress), and have it...
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.
Summary: There isn't a better unit on the market in this price range. I bought this over a year ago after using my brothers, and still to this day there isn't a better camera with the features and quality for the price.. Not even close!
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...
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.
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).
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!
Summary: During vacations, I want to shoot good quality pictures and some quick movie clips, thus I looked for a movie camera that fits in one hand & pocket, which is easy to use and shoots excellent digital pictures and pretty good movie clips. And: CANON's TX1 fit all those needs.
