First published on: Tuesday, 24 February 2009

The price of most digital cameras tend to trend downwards over time, and the same price drop should occur in the case of the Canon Powershot SX1 IS compact digital camera.

I’m not planning for any scheduled updates, but do check back here from time to time for the latest and best prices on the Canon SX1 IS and related accessories.

Canon PowerShot SX1IS 10 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 20x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.8-inch LCD: $519.99 ($3.04 price increase since the last update).

Typical accessories for the SX1IS

AA batteries — IMEDION or Sanyo Eneloop NiMH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries are your best bet, as they retain the charge for a very long period of time. Purchase additional batteries so that your SX1IS continues to have a backup power source during extended shooting sessions.

For storage, the SX1 IS uses SD or SDHC cards.

Refer to Rob Galbraith’s SD / SDHC card write speed tests (done on a Nikon D90) to get an idea on the relative write and read speeds of different brands of cards. At the time of writing (Oct 29, 2009), the SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards occupy the top two spots.

To ensure smooth recording of video and high resolution images, go for Class 6 or faster cards.

Good luck shopping for your Canon SX1 IS!
