Great little camera

  • Summary: I like the window viewer on the back. Many times the sun prevents a clear picture on the screen. Nice clear, clean pictures. Not too many gadgets to figure out. Point and shoot!

  • Summary: Only drawback is time to recharge flash, but considering it operates on 2 AA batteries (easy to find), it is good for my purposes. Color and sharpness of images are very good.

  • Summary: I got this on Amazon for $70, so I certainly can't complain about it being worth the price. My most recent check of this item shows a price of $149, so I got a good deal. I would recommend for $70.

Great little camera

  • Summary: I have been using and abusing a less expensive Canon Power Shot for about 5 years, but I wanted a point and shoot that had a view finder. I have gotten good service from the old Canon, so it was an easy decision to go with another Canon. I am very happy with the new one, not only because of the view finder, but also it is more compact than the older one, has a nicely designed hand hold, is more user friendly and takes great pictures.

  • Summary: I like this camera. It is one of the only ones with a view finder. It doesn't have some of the features I would like, but on a whole it is a good camera and takes good pictures.

Canon PowerShot A1300

  • Summary: This point-and-shoot camera takes good photos, is easy to use, and is light weight. I have used versions of the Canon PowerShot for years. I shoot mostly outdoor photographs. Two of the reasons I choose PowerShot cameras for trips and outdoor photos is 1) they have an optical view finder, and 2) they use AA batteries.

User Review

Lars V. Tvete, DP Review
27 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I like A1300. Shot with one hand. Important that I can take film using the optical viewfinder. Useful flash. Very good batteri capacity, because I am using viewfinder not the screen composing the picture. Useful picture information. Very good menu system. Good solid construction. Not to big for the pocket. Low price. G15 looks interesting, but is may be to big for my pockets. Problems: No problems. But would like to set the shutter or aperture manually.

  • Summary: I bought this to replace an old Cannon which took a dive in a lake and didn't survive. This camera is actually cheaper than the one it replaced, though it has more features. Build quality is quite good. I really like having a viewfinder and using AA rechargeable batteries. If you have ever been stuck with a camera that uses proprietary batteries you will understand. One can always by AA batteries to keep going.

Canon A1300

Bruce W. hathcock, Amazon

  • Summary: Smal portable camera east to operate even without reading a manual if you are used to digital camera, excellet picture quality, even when in moving car the stabilty is supurb. Zoom is good except the last 6x zoom which is digital once it hits the limit of the optical zoom the digital is almost worthless. However for fast snap shots on the fly it's a nice working camera and the price is about right. This was used to replace a Pentax digital camera.
