Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS review

 

As the starting point for Canon's Digital Elph ultracompact cameras, the SD1300 IS is decidedly basic. For example, one of the big selling points is that it's available in several color choices. It has other positive attributes, but nothing that makes...

Good looking, easy-to-use design; very good photo quality.

Basic feature set for its price.

If all you need or want is to point and shoot, the Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS does that well.

Good image quality for camera in the Sub $200 category ; Captures nice VGA sized movies ; Smart Auto shooting mode is accurate and makes the camera incredibly easy to use ; Great battery life from the NB-6L Li-ion power source ; Nice ultra-compact...

The PowerShot SD1300 IS Digital ELPH is a nice little ultra-compact with good performance, useful exposure modes Like Smart Auto, and decent image quality for a camera in its class. Our only gripes are increased noise, has trouble focusing in low light...

Canon Digital IXUS 105 Review

 

The Canon Digital IXUS 105 (also know as the Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS) is part of Canon's extensive Spring 2010 line-up. This small compact point-and-shoot model features classic IXUS styling, combining a slim and chic body with a 4x, 28-112mm...

The Canon Digital IXUS 105 doesn't look, feel or perform like a great departure from its pocket camera predecessors, which is fine, as Canon has hit on a winning formula with the range in terms of consistency of operation, small form factor and stylish...

The Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS: The Ambitious Beginner's Camera

 

This is not a technical review of the camera. This model has been out for a while, and has been examined in its full photo-taking glory by many experts. Instead this is a review of what it's like for a total amateur to own and operate this camera.

Pocked-sized - perfect for on-the-go photo ops;, Wide array of customizable settings;, Light without feeling flimsy

Poor performance in low-light conditions;, Slow processing at times
