I've had this camera for several months now and have had time to really get used to its quirks and strengths and weaknesses since I carry it everywhere with me. The best thing about it is the amount of stuff Canon has crammed into such a tiny form. It's not as small as some of the point and shoot cameras out there, but what it has is very useful if you take the time to know it. The winning combination is 10x zoom, optical image stabilization (OIS) and passable video recording (under certain conditions). The images are not as good under high magnification as some of the best (and cheaper) point and shoot cameras, with some color fringing and softness toward the edge of the frame. This is the trade-off with the tiny long zoom. There is streaking on highlights on the video recordings as in many of the smallest cameras, and the OIS is fantastic- but only if you are relatively still to begin with. The video is slightly over-saturated and sharpened, and works great with the OIS especially at longer focal lengths when you are standing still, otherwise use a tripod. Those are the complaints, but having this camera with me, once I got used to the settings and menus (learn how to turn the auto-focus off and on, etc.) has provided me with fantastic photos I wouldn't have otherwise, and hours of fun just playing. The results of long shutter exposures is a fascination of mine and few small cameras allow you to do this (variable 1-15 sec). For travel, there is nothing like being able to record video as well as stills with the option of a long zoom to capture the ambience of a place. It's unobtrusive and non-intimidating while still being able grab decent images in almost any setting. I highly recommend this camera if you require what it has to offer, but not necessarily if you're looking for a camera which offers what you exactly what you need. It's not likely this camera will.

I was shocked how quickly I received my Camera. I would definitely use this company again. Camera works great for it's size. I especially like the super macro feature. There are times where I wished the screen was bigger. Overall, I think it is a good value. Read More

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. Read More
