Great camera for the money. Not the best for moving targets

Summary: Great camera for the money. It has decent battery life. My only beef is, it takes a while to snap the picture sometimes which if you have little kids of any kind of moving target might not be ideal.
Summary: I bought this camera after buying and returning a Canon Powershot A495. The price difference is small but the quality difference is huge. The A1100 has an excellent quality lens for this type of camera.
Summary: Very nice camera especially since it has a view finder. Easily fits into your purse or pocket as well. I wish the upgraded cameras had a viewfinder as well; especially helpful when you are outside in the sun.

Summary: This camera was purchased for the basic purpose of snapshots that did not need to be very detailed and will not likely be printed larger than 4 by 6 inches. We were looking for a camera that would be sturdy, reliable, and easy to use. We bought this camera for our oldest who builds boats.
Summary: I really like this camera but have a problem with the battery and card being in the same compartment. Having to hold the button down while opening it makes it hard to open and I am afraid I will break it when I open it.
Summary: I took this camera on vacation and got a lot of good shots. I am just an every day photographer and found it to have a lot of features. I LOVE that this camera actually has a view finder; as that is hard to find anymore.
Summary: This Canon Powershot A1100 replaced an earlier Canon A540 for me. The earlier A540 was badly damaged in an accident. It has many similarities to the earlier Powershot which made the transition very easy. The longer-than-average 4x optical zoom was a good feature for me.
