Remember the extra batteries

  • Summary: Easy to use and takes fine pictures. Be sure to take extra batteries. It eats through batteries pretty quick if you are going on vacation and taking hundreds of shots.

The Cannon PowerShot needs faster shutter speed

  • 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.

Point and shoot...great pictures, slow shutter response

  • Excerpt: I bought this model as a replacement for my Cannon Powershot 700 (I think). I did not read closely enough to see that this model requires batteries (ugh) rather than having one rechargeable battery. The pictures are pretty good. The shutter takes about 1/2 a second to respond, so for action shots this is not the right choice unless you use the video camera feature.

The Canon Power Shot has excellent photo quality!

  • Excerpt: First thing is first, this camera takes great pictures. It's not a pricier camera, but as long as you are not trying to shoot professional photograhy, the picture quality is more than acceptable. I've always been happy with that as far as the vividness, clarity and just overall qualtiy of the photo. It has lots of different portrait landscaping types so you can take any kind of picture, as well it also includes a video option.

Great point-and-shooter

  • Excerpt: Okay I bout this about a year ago to replace an older FinePix camera (Fine Pix Z5fd). Although I liked my older camera, I wanted something with an IS feature - the primary thing that I was looking to upgrade for my compact. This is a plasticky camera, and for the price I really didn't expect anything else. It does not feel as solid as the SD series, which does have some heft and and "metalness" to it.

My Canon digital camera and I are good friends.

  • Excerpt: This is not my first Canon digital camera.  After about five years of frequent use, my old Canon had pretty much worn out.  Besides, the larger LCD screen, higher mega pixels, and smaller size appealed to me. When I started looking for a new camera, I was open to most any brand.  My main requirement was that it have not only the LCD screen but an optical viewfinder as well.  I found out quickly that was a very limiting requirement.

Just grab and go witn the Canon Power Shot A1100 IS

  • Excerpt: This lightweight camera is perfect for those on the run grab and to times you do not want to drag out the big SLR.  The battery life is better than average and it takes great pictures.  You have several options for taking pictures as well, you can take everything from action shots to close ups and even videos with this camera.  It is light weight enough that you can just put it in your pocket and not be weighed down with all the trappings of a bulky bag etc.

Good Camera.

  • Excerpt: Overall,  I  think  this  is  a  good  camera...  It  takes  good  pictures  and  dosen't  eat  batteries  like  alot  of  others  out  there...   It  has  a  timer,  unlike  my  old one. And  it  takes movies... And  you  can  set  it  to  take  3 photos.  Personally, I  like  it.  I  got  it  for  christmas last  year,  and  it  hasn't  let  me  down  yet.  I  take  it  everywhere  so  it  is  a  good  thing  the batteries  last  long.
