Canon PowerShot A1100 IS

 

The Canon PowerShot A1100 is a solid shooter, but it's practically identical to last year's model.

Fast. Superb image quality. 4x optical zoom.

Bulky. Low-resolution screen.

Canon PowerShot A1100 IS review: Canon PowerShot A1100 IS

 

Canon PowerShot A1100 IS

Viewfinder; simple operation; inexpensive; excellent photo quality for the money.

Mixed performance; short battery life.

Aside from a couple performance quibbles, the Canon PowerShot A1100 IS provides a good point-and-shoot experience with great pictures as a result.

Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Point-and-Shoot Review

 

Very good image quality ; Sturdy design with simple interface

Mediocre LCD screen ; Optical viewfinder shows 85% of scene

A great value for the price, with better image quality than more expensive cameras and a nice feature set.

At first glance the new Canon Powershot A1100 IS looks very similar to its bigger brother, the A2100. I reviewed both cameras at the same time and actually preferred the slightly cheaper A1100 model in many ways. Although offering a smaller,...

Review: Canon PowerShot A1100 IS digital camera

 

Canon's PowerShot A1100 IS provides a very good price/performance ratio, and it's even available in four fashionable colors. If you're looking for a good entry-level camera, you should consider the A1100.

The A1100 sports a plastic body that is well made, with no creaks or moving seams. The right side bulges a bit to create a hand grip, and the camera’s 4x zoom lens retracts to be fairly flush with the camera’s body. At 3.7 by 2.5 by 1.2 inches, the...

Canon PowerShot A1100 review

 

A fully featured compact camera with a disappointing screen

Old-school viewfinder ; Nice pictures ; Digic4 processor

Price ; Poor LCD screen

With a few more features than some of it's brethren, the A480 is a fully featured compact that is unfortunately a bit too pricey to recommend
