Rob Galbraith: Canon PowerShot SX1 IS gaining RAW mode, coming to U.S., Canada
The PowerShot SX1 IS is coming to the U.S. and Canada in April. The Canon compact digital still camera was announced last fall in other parts of the world, and can record 1920 x 1080 pixel video at 30fps, the first PowerShot model to offer 1080p HD recording. 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 to4 fps.
