|This is one of the few camera out there that is an HD with a Cmos sensor that can be used with Iphoto and Imovie. Not a replacement for dedicated HD camcorder but a good choice to take quick HD vids in a crunch.|

Regardless of the mode dial position, you can shoot movies* by just pressing the Movie button, until the memory card is full. You can also shoot movies while using effects such as Color Accent, Color Swap, and My Colors. When the aspect ratio is set to 4:3, you can select the number recording pixels (p. 93). When the aspect ratio is set to 16:9 (p. 80), you can shoot movies in full high-definition. Sound is recorded in stereo. In modes other than mode, some of the settings previously set in menus such as the FUNC. and Rec. menus may be changed to those of the movie recording mode.
* Even if the file size has not reached 4 GB in the aspect ratio 4:3 mode, the recording is stopped when the recording time reaches one hour (p. 288). Depending on memory card capacity, data write speed and subjects, recording may stop before the file size reaches 4 GB or the recording time reaches one hour.
About Full High-Definition Movies
The CMOS image sensor allows the camera to process full highdefinition movies that are recorded in pixels*, producing movies that capture the smallest of details. We recommend using an SD memory card with a Class 6 speed rating or higher. In addition, by using the HDMI Cable HTC-100 (sold separately), you can play back the movies on a high-definition TV (p. 233).
Changing Movie Recording Pixels (Aspect Ratio 4:3)
Recording Pixels Frame Rates 30 frames/sec. 30 frames/sec.
The number of recording pixels and frame rate for are fixed at pixels and 30 frames/sec. respectively.
See Memory Cards, Estimated Capacities and Image Data Sizes (Estimated) (p. 287). Frame rates indicate the number of frames recorded or played back each second.
Shooting Still Images while Shooting a Movie
You can shoot a high quality still image* while shooting a movie.
* The recording pixels and compression will be the same as those for still images of the selected aspect ratio. However, when shooting in RAW mode, the image will be recorded in (Large, Fine).
While shooting a movie, press the shutter button halfway to focus.
Press the shutter halfway so the camera can focus and set exposure for the still image. The electronic sound does not play. During this process, movie shooting continues.
Press the shutter button all the way to shoot the image.
When a still image is shot, the display on the LCD monitor (or the viewfinder) will disappear momentarily and then return to the movie display. Because the shutter sound of the still image being taken is also recorded, the sound of that moment in the movie will cut off. The flash will not fire. The ISO speed will be fixed to [Auto]. Continuous shooting of still images is not available. Movie shooting may stop when shooting a still image if there is insufficient internal memory available. The following icons appear if the recording speed of the storage media is too slow or if there is insufficient internal memory available, in which case a still image cannot be shot. : While this is blinking, writing is in progress. Shooting is again possible when it stops blinking and stays lit. : Internal memory is full, so shooting is disabled.
Setting the Recording Functions
The microphone level (sound recording level) for movie, sound memos (p. 196) and sound recorder (p. 197), and Wind Filter (p. 197) can be set.

Shutter Sync. You can switch the timing at which the flash fires. 1st-curtain The flash fires right after the shutter opens, regardless of the shutter speed. Usually, the 1st-curtain is used when shooting.
2nd-curtain The flash fires right before the shutter closes. Compared with the 1st-curtain, the flash fires later and allows you to shoot images in which, for example, a cars taillights seem to trail off behind.
Menu Item Summary Note Using Slow Synchro increases the chances for camera shake. Use of a tripod is recommended.
Slow Synchro The flash timing is adjusted to slow shutter speeds. This reduces the chance that only the background will appear dark when a night scene or an interior shot is taken. Red-Eye Corr. Red-Eye Lamp Automatically searches for and corrects red eyes in the image when the flash fires. This feature reduces the effect of light reflecting back from the eyes and making them appear red. The camera automatically changes the shutter speed or aperture value when the flash fires to avoid overexposing and blowing out the highlights in the scene.
The red-eye reduction lamp lights green before the flash fires. In or shooting mode, set [Flash Mode] to [Auto] in advance.
About Red-Eye Correction When [Red-Eye Corr.] is set to [On], only the corrected image is recorded to the memory card. If the area around the eyes is red, for example from using red eye shadow, that area may also be corrected. If this happens, set [Red-Eye Corr.] to [Off]. Red eyes may not be automatically detected or may not be fully corrected on some images. In either case, you can correct images with [Red-Eye Correction] in the Play menu (p. 185). The digital zoom cannot be used in mode.

Meet SX1 IS, First Canon PowerShot to Feature a CMOS Sensor
As well as its close sibling, the PowerShot SX10 IS
We've talked on several occasions about Canon's rather unusual habit of making a large number of announcements in single day, followed by long periods of inactivity. And, once again, the company has proved that old habits die hard, since it came up with a very large number of cameras, targeting various market segments. Two of these products are the SX1 IS and the SX10 IS, which bring some pretty interesting novelties to the table, the SX1 IS being the first PowerShot ever to feature a CMOS sensor. According to the company, this duo of digital cameras is actually designed to jointly replace one of the company's top performers, the PowerShot S5 IS. However, while the SX10 IS represents somewhat of a "natural" evolution, the SX1 IS marks a whole new approach for Canon. Hence, both PowerShot SX1 IS and PowerShot SX10 IS feature resolutions of 10 Megapixels. While the SX10 IS sports a CCD sensor, the SX1 IS has been equipped with a Canon CMOS sensor, this being the reason why the PowerShot SX1 IS is able to shoot full-resolution JPEGs at speeds of up to 4fps. Moreover, due to the fact that it incorporates a CMOS sensor, the PowerShot SX1 IS can record 1080p (30fps) High Definition video, which can then be played on any HDTV via a built-in HDMI connection. The SX10 IS also offers video recording capabilities, but we're only talking about a more modest VGA resolution. Nevertheless, movies on both cameras are enhanced with CD quality stereo sound, optical zooming and Face Detection Technology. Featuring a Canon 20x wide-angle (28mm) optical zoom lens, the PowerShot SX1 IS and PowerShot SX10 IS can be used for shooting a wide variety of photos, while the Ultrasonic Motor (USM) combines with Voice Coil Motor (VCM) technology for near-silent operation and speed for sports or wildlife subjects. Both models feature Canon's optical Image Stabilizer, while the PowerShot SX1 IS also includes Canon's Advanced Tele-Converter for an extra 2x zoom. Another innovation brought about by these two new PowerShots is the full manual control over both aperture and shutter speed. Additionally, the PowerShot SX1 IS also incorporates Canon's WC-DC300 controller, which allows wireless control of shooting and playback. Plus, the new cameras are compatible with a wide range of Canon accessories, including the Speedlite EX flash units. The Canon PowerShot SX10 IS will arrive in stores across the world in late October and will sell for an estimate $399.99. Unfortunately, there's no pricing information available for the SX1 IS, which, apparently, will only be available in Europe and Asia, since Canon's North-American website doesn't provide any info regarding this particular model.
