Hi and welcome (ahlan beek) to Steve's Alsalafy Photos.

Some really nice work from the SX1, I almost never use mine for photos pretty much only video but probably I should make use of it more often. I agree that at all ISOs there is quite a lot of noise but still the final results can be great as we see here.

My fave here is the one with the wave breaking against the sunset, it's a fantastic capture. Where were these taken?

Hope to see more from you.

ok I'm yet to understand a lot of photography terminology, but can you point out to me the "noise" in these pictures please? They look very good and clear to me

Look At iso 80 in good light enviroment the noise appears when you Crop image 100% and that is bad iff you want to shot macro photos or if you want to print large print outs

look at this photo ---Iso 80 with shutter 1/1000 in day light 100Crop for one of the photos

iso 400 and above the noise apperas even in reduced small sized images and we realy need this even in day light if we want to shoot with shutter speeds faster than 1/1250
Iso 1600 and iso 3200 is not usable at all

Lighthunter is right that there is quite a bit of noise in the SX1 and it is a problem with a lot of P&S cameras. Let's take the Panasonic FZ28 this has very similar noise issues so unfortunately it is something that we have to live with when shooting with a P&S. This is where a dSLR really comes into it's own but then you lose convenience.

Note these photos taken in gaza strip

Very cool and looks a beautiful place to shoot.

Isn't comparing any P&S to even a low-end DSLR pretty much pointless? I see the mention of noise... but most reviewers, like steves and cameralabs, list the IQ of the SX1, SX10, FZ28, etc, very good for most shots up to about ISO 400/800...

is it reasonable to expect anything but a DSLR to produce good IQ over iso800? and even then it'd need to be a high-end DSLR wouldn't it? and then you'd need multiple lenses to cover even part of the range these super-zooms cover...

I understand the superzoom vs dslr comparison if IQ is the only or biggest factor and you are a PRO or a real photo-buff.... but other than that, most arguments are moot aren't they?

I think you can only really compare super-zooms to super-zooms if you are comparing anything but strictly IQ ...

I'm a newbie, but that seems tp be what I've found in trying to decide
