When Canon announced its $500 PowerShot TX-1 recently, I was skeptical. It’s a tiny camera, about the size of my old S200 still camera, that can take 7.1 megapixel still images and also capture 720p HD footage. We’ve seen similar attempts (like the Sanyo Xacti) that haven’t been impressive in real life.
Well, Gizmodo is at this week’s PMA (Photo Marketing Association) 2007 show, and so far they’re gushing about the little multicam. Click here for photos – it’s really really tiny. We’ll have to see what the image quality is like, because the sensor in there is no doubt teeny.
