Quick review of Canon PowerShot SX1 IS

"This camera is not released yet so the 'review' already here is a piece of fluffy nonsense I'm afraid. Wait for a review from someone who has actually got the camera - which won't be until December.

Quick review of Canon PowerShot SX1 IS

"excellent and priceless for people who loves photography .It is a very powerful device not easily breakable but at the same time is very heavy i.e not for girly hands . A great camera to buy esp if you are thinking of touring to different countries.
