7.8 out of 10 (Very good)
“A top megazoom option, the Canon PowerShot SX1 IS offers a 20x zoom lens and HD video, which you can't get in a similarly priced dSLR, and delivers more features and slightly better performance and photo quality than the cheaper SX10 IS.”

Not a Dave's Pick
“Still, the Canon SX1 performs well enough to produce a 13x19-inch print at its lower ISO settings, and though it doesn't quite rise to all we expected from this special CMOS sensor, it does capture images well enough that those not printing larger than 11x14 or 8x10 should be very happy with it. If you need a stereo long-zoom HD camcorder, of course, the Canon SX1 is easier to recommend.”

“As it stands the SX1 - whilst interesting - offers too little to justify its high price, and while I'm sure that as its price falls it will become more attractive to a wider range of potential buyers, at the moment it's impossible to see why you would buy one over the SX10 IS.”
