The Canon PowerShot TX1, a vertically oriented camera incorporating a high-magnification zoom lens in a compact body that comfortably fits in the palm of the hand, represents the first model in the company’s new PowerShot TX series. The development of a new lens barrel enables the compact TX1 to accommodate a 10x optical zoom lens incorporating optical lens stabilization. Equipped with a 7.1-megapixel CCD and Canon’s DIGIC III imaging processor, the camera achieves high image quality throughout the entire zoom range, from wide angle to telephoto.

The vertical orientation of the PowerShot TX1 facilitates easy one-handed handling while the vari-angle LCD monitor and multi controller contribute to easy operation. The model offers a selection of movie-recording modes, including a high definition (HD) mode that records at 1280 x 720 pixels and 30 frames per second, and also includes a component output terminal (D3 compatible, output signal: 1080i) that allows users to enjoy high-definition still images and movies on an HD television.
