I love this camera! I pre ordered it last April and it came in June.I use it for all my phots and vids Except underwater.I gave my sd 900 away because I never even took it out of the case anymore.For a fun do all camera it just dose'nt get any better than the Tx1.The lcd screen is small but this is a small camera...I use this camera every week and after hours and hours of vids and thousands of photos this is still my all time favorite camera! What will the Tx2 have for us?
Great photos. Big improvement in quality over my 5MP Elph SD-450. Video is easy to use with separate record button. Battery life is just OK. You definitely need a spare. Unusual hand grip but once you get used to it, it is great. All the controls are right at hand. Mode dial allow you to chose alternate exposure settings and quickly flip back and forth. A big improvement over all of my previous Canon Elph cameras both in photo quality and ease of operation.
