Drew - Did you look at the specs of the Powershot SX1is in terms of video? Is it the same video as in the 5DII?
I'm surprised this video did not end up in G10, but in a different Powershot camera, especially given Canon's stated position that the G10 is the flagship compact: http://www.dpreview....oninterview.asp
Only 10MP, but given the video capability and native 28-560mm zoom equivalent, with the right housing and wide-angle adapter this Powershot might be an interesting tool to use underwater. Imagine going on safari and then going on the sardine run with one dinky camera and a small Pelican case.
Not that I'll trade in my MKIII cameras and Seacam, but still, lots of performance in smaller cameras these days.
