Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot A1100 IS can be simply put as a 12 megapixel update to the old A1000 with a new processor and a few small changes.

Pros: Compact design with a fairly decent right hand grip and viewfinder, 128 MB â€œstarterâ€� memory card may be handy for photo newbies, Good image quality with low noise till ISO 800 (with one issue below though), Smart Auto mode simplifies operation â€“ picks a scene mode for you, Fast picture-taking performance, Effective red-eye removal and low color fringing
Cons: No manual controls or conversion lens compatibility, 22% drop in battery life from A1000; performance also a tad slower than A1000, Very slight color fringing and edge softness (but Iâ€™m nitpicking here), Reflective LCD needs â€œcorrect angleâ€� outdoors, low in resolution, Lacks a battery indicator; lens doesnâ€™t retract if the camera is low on power

Excerpt: From the outside the Canon Powershot A1100 IS is virtually identical to the A1000 model that it replaces.
