The official marketing text of Canon PowerShot SX1 IS Compact camera 10MP 1/2.3" CCD 3648 x 2736pixels Black as supplied by the manufacturer
With a 10.0 MP Canon CMOS sensor and 20x wide-angle zoom for incredible reach, the PowerShot SX1 IS offers continuous shooting up to 4fps. Supplement photos with Full HD videos.

Super zoom
The powerful 20x wide-angle (28mm, f/2.8) optical zoom provides outstanding reach and composition flexibility. With Ultrasonic Motor (USM) and Voice Coil Motor (VCM), zooming is fast, accurate and near-silent, while Canon’s renowned optical Image Stabilizer technology counteracts camera shake.

Canon CMOS sensor
The PowerShot SX1 IS is the first Canon compact camera to incorporate a Canon CMOS sensor, which allows high resolution shooting in exceptionally rapid bursts. The sensor boasts 10 Megapixels for capturing the finest detail, allowing creative cropping and superb large-scale prints.

HD movies in stereo
Create smooth, high quality movies in full high definition (1080, 30p), then use HDMI connectivity for playback on HD widescreen TVs – complete with CD quality stereo sound.

Incorporating the latest in image processing technology, DIGIC 4 delivers extraordinary noise reduction. The result is richly detailed, cleaner images, even when shooting at high ISO speeds. DIGIC 4 also drives exceptional processing speeds and responsive operation.

Miss nothing
With the Canon CMOS sensor, extra fast continuous shooting speeds (up to 4fps) at full resolution are achieved. Servo AF tracks moving subjects to ensure they remain in focus.

Face Detection Technology
Great people shots are assured with the latest Face Detection AF/AE/FE/WB – even faces at angles and far away. Face Select & Track optimises settings for a chosen person, while FaceSelf-Timer waits for you to enter the frame for great self-portraits or group photos.

Eliminate blur
The PowerShot SX1 IS combats potential blur with High ISO Auto and Motion Detection Technology, which ascertains movement of both camera and subject to set the optimum ISO, whatever the shooting situation. Servo AF tracks moving subjects to ensure they remain in focus.

Optimum contrast
Working in both shooting and playback, i-Contrast boosts brightness in dark areas. The result is improved contrast with detail retained in tricky lighting conditions.

Large LCD
The 2.8" widescreen vari-angle LCD enables framing from challenging angles and easy sharing of images in playback. Night Display mode enhances screen visibility in low light.

Flash compatible
For extended shooting options and better light coverage, the comprehensive accessory system includes compatibility with Canon EX Speedlite flash range.

Picture quality
Camera type *
There are a number of common types of digital cameras: compact cameras, bridge cameras, mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and single lens reflex (SLR) cameras. Bridge cameras 'bridge the gap' between the low-end compact and high-end professional (SLR) cameras. Also MILCs populate this mid-segment by combining the larger sensors and interchangeable lenses of DSLRs with the live-preview viewing system of compact cameras.
Compact camera
Megapixel *
The number (in millions) of light-sensitive picture elements known as pixels actually used by the camera's image sensor (CCD) to record light, and which are reflected to the final number of recorded pixels stored on the memory card.
10 MP
Image sensor size *
Sensor type *
A sensor is a convertor than measures a physical quality (light, temperature etc.) and displays this electronically on a device.
Maximum image resolution *
Resolution is the amount of detail held by an image. The higher the resolution, the better (sharper) the image. The maximum image resolution produces the best image.
3648 x 2736 pixels
Image stabilizer *
This camera function compensates for slight shaking movements caused by an unstable position and ensures smooth footage even in suboptimal conditions.
Lens system
Optical zoom *
Indicates the optical zoom capacity, which is the number of times that the picture can be enlarged with the optics of the camera.
Digital zoom *
Indicates the digital zoom capacity, the number of times that the picture is enlarged thanks to digital technology.
Focal length range (f-f)
Measure of how strongly the system converges or diverges light. For an optical system in air, it is the distance over which initially collimated rays are brought to a focus. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length; that is, it bends the rays more strongly, bringing them to a focus in a shorter distance.For an optical system in air, the effective focal length (f and f′) gives the distance from the front and rear principal planes (H and H′) to the corresponding focal points (F and F′).
