Camera didn't last

Summary: I bought it used, but I expected it to last longer than it did. Canon is a great company that makes great cameras, but buyer beware! Buy a new camera, not a used one. Go to a retailer that will offer a warranty. I expected a longer life from this camera. It deteriorated quickly.
Summary: I saw this camera was rated #1 for point and shoot image quality on some camera review sites. It also has quite a lot of flexibility in choosing how you want your photos shot. This is a great camera that I can carry when it's not convenient to have my big DSLR and lenses with me. I've dropped it several times and although it's a bit scratched up now, it still takes great photos and battey life is excellent!

Pros: good resolution, easy to use
Cons: Short battery life (dies after a few shots), poor software (no sofisticated remote control), too "automatic" for my taste (can't manually change all the parameters (aurora night shots for example are impossible)
Summary: I purchased this camera as an extra. Whenever my Husband and I go to the zoo or sightseeing I always have him take photos just in case my DSLR doesn't capture the closeups the way I like. Well Hubby has gotten many gorgeous shots that I have missed. This little camera is amazing and I highly recommend it. Since it only has a 4x zoom it is not reliable for zoom shots but hey that's what the DSLR is for. You will love this little easy to carry camera.
I love my Cannon PowerShot Digital Camera! Takes great pics!

Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot 1100 Digital Camera is compact and easy to carry and store. The picture quality is good. It is very reasonably priced. There are 3 things that I do not like about this camera. The shutter speed is a little slow in between shots, the batteries go low quick and the battery door spring does not shut completely.

Excerpt: When my old camera broke I decided to buy a more affordable camera. I looked at the Canon-Powershot A1100 IS and it looked great and had all the features that my more expensive camera had. I knew the Canon name and how reputable it was so I bought it. Boy was I glad I did because this camera has never taken a bad picture. It has great zoom and I love the quality of the video also. It has been dropped many times and still works perfectly.
Excerpt: This camera is an excellent value. I am pleased with the quality of my photos and it is a very user friendly camera. The only thing I don't love is that the battery/memory card cover is a little tricky to close.
