Started to have problems quickly !

Eleanora, Amazon
12 October 2014
  • Summary: What a waste of money. It worked fine for the first month or so. Then I started to get "low battery" after taking less than 50 photos. I would take the batteries out, test them, and they still showed full power. Next, a round black smudge mark started appearing in the photos.

Huge delay

KimBeau, Amazon

  • Summary: I was warned in other's reviews, but did not listen. This camera has a huge delay. I get nothing but pictures of people as they leave. It can be used for nothing but still shots. Then the camera goes on hold to charge the flash after every picture. Wish I could send it back.

2nd try with this camera - Batteries won't hold a charge

Linda B. Cone "Chechako", Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought one of these cameras in April, 2013, and really liked it. It was easy to use, and the photos came out great. Then the batteries started discharging after only about one day. It was within the time limit of themreturn policy, so I was able to return it for a full refund.

Battery Error, again!

C. L. Taylor, Amazon
24 March 2013
  • Summary: I had a PowerShot A540 that suddenly didn't see new batteries. I had read online that it could not be fixed and decided to try the Powershot A1300 HD. After 4 weeks and two uses, the A1300 had the same error. Changing the batteries to fresh ones does not clear it.

A Big Mistake

Amazon Customer, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • Summary: I usually never write bad product reviews, but i have to this time. Over the past 25 years or so I have had many Cannon film camera. One of their 1st point and shoots took better photos than my pro camera. BUT the A1300 is not the same. From when I took it out of the box it was cheap and plastic.

You get what you pay for!

  • Summary: I bought this camera for my mom. She's not great with electronics so I wanted something simple to use and without all those ridiculous features that nobody uses. I grew up in a PowerShot family so I trusted this device based on it's name.

  • Summary: I have owned several Canon point and shoot and professional cameras and have been very happy with them for the most part. I ordered this camera because I liked the idea of having a viewfinder.

The quality of the indoors photos is unacceptable

Jul Nis, Amazon
4 September 2012
  • Summary: The quality of the indoors photos is unacceptable, even for an inexpensive camera, so I'm very disappointed in Canon. On the highest quality settings the indoors photos are very grainy and blurry - similar to my iPhone photos in quality.
