Innovative Face Detection, 25 unique shooting modes, and 1080p HD video recording further expand the possibilities of image making. With all these features and more, the Canon PowerShot SX1 IS Digital Camera is a superb choice for discerning photographers of all levels.

HD Video Recording
If you long for the convenience of an advanced still camera that also creates superb movies, the new PowerShot SX1 IS was developed with you in mind. Movies shot in Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), capture your memories with clarity, realism and brilliance. HDMI output makes playback of video and photos on your HDTV simple.
CMOS Sensor Technology
Canon's proprietary CMOS sensors were formerly reserved for its storied EOS line. Unlike the CCD sensors on most digital cameras, CMOS sensors convert and amplify signals before they are transferred to the image processor. This enables the CMOS sensor to produce exceptionally clean image data, free of the stray signals that can mar images. The resulting images show a notable brilliance and clarity.
28mm Wide-Angle 20x Optical Zoom Lens with Optical Image Stabilization
The PowerShot SX1 IS features Canon's precision 28mm wide-angle lens that allows you to shoot any scene from wide-angle to telephoto. It lets you capture more in every frame, so everyone fits in a family gathering shot. When it's time to take a closer look, a 20x optical zoom (35mm film equivalent 28-560mm) greatly minimizes camera shake and maximizes the brilliance of every detail. The camera uses a USM (Ultrasonic Motor) for high-speed, quiet, energy-efficient lens movement with precise control. Focal length is conveniently indicated on the lens barrel.
Large 2.8" Swiveling LCD and Viewfinder
The camera's 2.8" LCD widescreen gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient. Clear and bright, it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light. It also has an electronic viewfinder that provides sharp images when you shoot close-up with the Super Macro shooting mode.
RAW Image Capture
RAW mode lets you shoot images without JPEG compression. It gives you clearer images and complete creative control in editing. RAW images are transferred directly to the computer where they can then be edited using image adjustment software or a processing application to adjust your images as you please. The camera can also be set to allow the simultaneous recording of both RAW and JPEG images while shooting.
Advanced Face Detection Technology
Canon's most advanced image processor, DIGIC 4, delivers evolved Face Detection Technology that keeps every face in every photo looking its very best. The technology finds and tracks the faces of moving subjects until you're ready to shoot, then delivers perfect focus. In addition, exposure, flash and white balance are compensated, so that faces exhibit natural skin tones and backgrounds are properly exposed.
Multiple Shooting Modes
With 25 Shooting Modes including 12 Special Scene Modes, you're ready for whatever shot comes your way. When you're taking pictures, the only thing you want to think about is your subject. With the PowerShot SX1 IS, you can count on exact focus no matter where your subject is in the frame. You've got Shooting Modes including Special Scene Modes that give you breathtaking, exhilarating pictures even when shooting conditions are tough.
Easy Printing and Sharing
The Print/Share button makes direct printing easier than ever. Simply connect the PowerShot SX1 IS to a Canon PIXMA Inkjet Photo Printer or SELPHY Compact Photo Printer or any PictBridge compatible photo printer, press the lighted Print/Share button and print. Also use the Print/Share button to easily transfer images to your personal computer.
