You can't compare a TS1 to any Canon camera except the D10. It uses a folded internal lens and a tiny sensor with weather sealing. Image Quality cannot compete with non-waterproof cameras.
I have my Canon A610 and a 40D for non wet times.
That said, I thought the TS1 has a really good control layout and remembers your settings well considering it is pretty much a full auto camera like all waterproof super compact P&S cams.
