hi bro firstly there are very good websites that have already pitted the cameras together to make comparison n reviews... suggest u to google something like SX10 vs SX20

if budget no issue, certainly SX1 is the best among the 3, simply for the full HD video n faster fps...

but i suggest u also consider the G10/G11

I tested the SX20 IS, Noise control and cleaning algorithm from Digic 4 is very good imho.

The only stopping factor is the lens. I find it inferior over S2/S3/S5 IS lens.
SX20 IS has the best noise performance among SX1, SX10 and SX20.

See if u are a video guy. SX1 wins in 1080 video, SX20 with 720p and lastly SX10 480p.
As for quality image, SX20, SX10 then SX1 IS.
Do google and read the reviews of the 3 cameras. I prefer SX20 since it has decent 720p video and good image quality.

From DPreview: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canonsx1is/page17.asp

"The other big difference between the SX1 IS and the cheaper SX10 IS (other then RAW mode) is 1080p HD video capture. While this might sound significant, the image quality problems with the smaller sensor such as noise are also present in the movies, and the usual 'jelly effect' caused by the rolling shutter when panning with CMOS sensors is present here as well. What it comes down to is that the price difference between the SX1 IS and SX10 IS could buy you a nice HD video camera that would give you as good - if not better - video quality."

Seems SX1IS perform slightly poorer then SX10IS
