Great Little Camera WITH Viewfinder!
Dennis Phillips, Amazon

Summary: OK, I took a star away only because there are so many more better cameras out there these days at really good prices...but I LOVE THIS ONE because it has a viewfinder! When I got it a few years ago, it was the only remaining one (of this size) with a viewfinder I could find. All other manufacturers fell in love with great big LCDs and Canon went the same way. I didn't want an SLR-sized camera - I wanted one I could put in a very little case or directly in my pocket.
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.
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.
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. Wanting to stay within the $200 - $300...

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. For...
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.
Canon Powershot is a Great camera for a great price!!

Excerpt: I really wanted a good camera that wasn't too large and bulky and took great photos that I could print off using my printer and/or photo service. Plus it had to be affordable (less than $150) This camera is it! It's also easy to use -- dont worry about using the manual - its very intuitive. There are several functions for indoor/outdoor, nightime, closeup, activity, automatic -- which I use most of the time...
