Canon PowerShot A1300Digital Camera Review

 

The PowerShot A1300 is a AA-battery powered compact, offered by Canon to appeal to old-fashioned (or well-prepared) shooters. But there's a lot more going for this little camera. It's very inexpensive, very small, very light, has a built-in optical...

For those who absolutely must own a AA-powered camera, you could do worse than the Canon PowerShot A1300. We like the small optical viewfinder, especially how it actually magnifies along with optical zoom. The oversized battery compartment has the side...

This AA-powered ultracompact is priced to sell, but cost-cutting measures limit performance.

Inexpensive; Outstanding color accuracy

Poor image quality overall; Slow continuous shooting

Canon PowerShot A1300

 

The Canon PowerShot A1300 is a great outdoors camera. Its bulkier design and great picture quality make it a great companion for your hikes or fishing trips. The camera does not perform well during indoor and low-light situations, and you'll have to...

This camera features a viewfinder, making it easier to frame your pictures on bright and sunny days

The camera's ISO range is lower than most cameras, and you'll find yourself relying heavily on the flash to get indoor and darker pictures

If you plan on taking your camera on hikes or outdoor trips, the Canon PowerShot A1300 makes for a great day-time camera.

Canon PowerShot A1300

 

I needed a replacement for my 6 year old Canon point & shoot so this was perfect. Canon rules and Nikon drools.

Got it on sale. It's a good camera for simple photography, but still cannot beat a good DSLR. Also, it's a Canon

Didn't come with a case like Canon cameras used to, cheapskates

Consumer review by:

Great point and shoot camera

 

Main reason I love this camera is that it has a viewfinder and uses regular batteries. It is a hassle to take charger and converter when traveling in Europe. The fact that it takes great color true pictures is a bonus.
