Canon TX1 HDV Camera

Canon topped its camera announcements today by revealing the PowerShot TX1. The camera breaks from tradition by merging the features of still photo cameras and HDV camcorders. While part of the PowerShot line and capable of 7.1-megapixel images with face detection, ISO 1600, and post-shooting red-eye correction, the TX1 also has the features of a motion camera and can capture 720p widescreen video at full speed. The camera will even snap full-quality stills while recording movies, Canon adds. Its shape is similarly vertically-oriented and makes room for a 10X optical zoom lens with image stabilization.

Despite its new video emphasis, the TX1 uses more convenient SD cards for storage and supports SDHC for memory beyond the previous 2GB barrier. Its price is also closer to photo than video cameras, reaching $500 when it ships to stores in March. Click through for a larger image.
