Canon adds 1080p video to PowerShot line in SX1 IS
The EOS 5D Mark II isn't the only camera from Canon to gain 1080p video today. The Powershot SX1 IS, one of two models to replace the PowerShot S5 IS in the company's compact camera lineup (the other is the SX10 IS), can capture 1920 x 1080 pixel video at 30 fps, the first PowerShot model to offer 1080p HD recording. And it does so with the first Canon-developed CMOS image sensor in a compact camera, one that captures 9.98 million image pixel still photos at up to 4 fps.
