Canon SX1 IS carmera

As a counterpart to its SX10 IS, Canon has announced the SX1 IS, a version with some performance enhancements. While both cameras have DIGIC 4 processors, 20x image-stabilization lenses and a 10-megapixel ceiling resolution, the SX1 uses a CMOS sensor instead of CCD, something which Canon claims will let it shoot at up to 4fps in full resolution. The camera also uses a slightly larger LCD, measuring 2.8 inches instead of 2.5.

Also included is 30fps, 1080p video recording, a feature borrowed from the EOS 5D Mk. II. An HDMI output is provided for displaying images on TVs. Pricing and release dates have not been announced, but it is believed that the camera is unlikely to appear in North America.
