Excerpt: I think this is one of the best compact cameras. Why do I say that? Because you can make great photos in automatic mode, and you can make excelent photos in bright day light. See my examples: Made with my Canon A1300 in automatic mode. It must be bright day light.
Summary: I have tried several cameras over the years & this one is hard to beat ,(unless you take out a loan for something else)..With it being a Canon,,Price,Product & Quality-- It Will Git-Er-Done !! Old school,new school,any school--The optical viewfinder (Rare) is the frosting on the cake!! Common sense will tell you when there is a glare on the LCD screen,(DUH)! With too many features to name, I highly recommend this camera to anyone,,even my Mother-in-law...
Summary: I bought this to replace my last camera that was glitching. It is light and convenient to bring along anywhere. The memory card I got for it allows for thousands of pictures to be stored. It was a good deal for being prepared to take pictures of grandkids.
Summary: Its a great camera easy to use. The picture quality isn't the greatest but it wasn't an expensive camera either. Very easy to just grab and go not a bulky camera which is nice. I have been happy with this product so far.
Nice compact camera with viewfinder as a BIG PLUS!

Summary: This is a good portable alternative when I don't feel like lugging around my DSLR. I selected this camera specifically because, in addition to the digital display, it has a viewfinder which is invaluable in sunny conditions. Two other advantages are that it takes standard SD memory cards which are more readily available and cheaper than other manufacturer's proprietary memory cards/sticks; and it takes AA batteries so you don't have to worry about having to recharge with...
Summary: I think this is a great little camera. The first reason I bought it was because it was a Canon. I wanted an oldtime view finder because in sunlight, most LED screens don't show up very well. Therefore, this viewfind works great in bright light. It had 16 MP. The shutter has a pretty quick release. The red eye doesn't seem to work on my puppy's eyes though. Overall, I am very happy with the camera.
