"In September of 2008 Canon announced dual successors to the S5 IS. The cheaper of the two models is the Powershot SX10 IS, which features a 10 MP CCD sensor behind a 20X image stabilized lens, with the more expensive camera - the SX1 IS - adding RAW mode, a CMOS sensor, faster continuous shooting speed, and HD 1080p video recording."
If you're looking to take a step above camera phones and point-and-click cameras, it is a good bet you have investigated larger, heftier cameras that won't fit in your pocket. Of course, these cameras don't just offer a larger body, but a wealth of additional features and controls both in hardware and software to let you take stunning pictures. The Canon SX1 IS is positioned to be one of these, especially with the use of a CMOS sensor, but DPReview remains unimpressed, actually favouring its cheaper sibling's results. I haven't taken the leap to a better class camera than what is on my phone, but when the time comes, I want it to provide a noticable difference. Looking at the test pictures taken with the camera it looks like I'd be passing by the SX1 IS.
