Pretty good camera with decent features

Summary: It's a good mid-range digital point and shoot though it has a lot of issues shooting in low light. The image stabilization feature is a joke though - my iphone definitely takes better pictures in a lot of situations.
I am still puzzeled, but the fact is this camera is not for me.

Summary: I have this camera for about 10 months now and I did everything to like it. I am a big Canon camera (small cameras) fan. My all-time favorite was the SD10 model. That little thing did most often probably accidently, but never the less gorgeous panoramic photos.
Summary: We bought this camera when our old Canon Elph died. We had that camera 5 years and LOVED it. We have 2 children and it never missed a shot. So, we decided to upgrade our model to get this camera and we are disappointed in the clarity.
Lens flare problem...but if you get a decent copy it might work.

Summary: Our copy of the 1300 has a flare problem while a direct light source is in the picture- a top to bottom light streak appears in the image. We have tried everything from white balance setting, to angles, to color. In every image there is a VERY visible vertical 'ghost' flare from top to bottom.
Summary: I have owned two earlier incarnations of this camera. I do not know if I got a defective product, or if Canon has changed something. The camera seems to take at least 1 second to display the photo of the screen.
SD series USED to be awesome, now all photos have NOISE!

Summary: I've been a faithful Canon user for years. I own a 7D with a couple of lenses and have owned many SD powershot cameras since the SD200 (including the SD800 which has been the best one by far). I just got my SD1300IS and was very excited to take a couple of test shots.
Summary: I bought this camera as a replacement for a former Canon point and shoot. I would have bought the same camera again, but it has been made obsolete by production needs. This camera frankly is not as good as the one it is replacing; it has fewer features.
Summary: As far as compact size vs fantastic photos goes, this is ONE AWESOME CAMERA. We took it to Las Vegas and got pictures we will treasure our whole life. It brings out the colors of the background and so much more.
Summary: The seller got the product shipped, and there were no problems. I've had a Canon camera before and just loved the pictures. This camera disappointed me. The pictures are not as vibrant and sharp as I expected them to be.
Summary: I had the SD1200 for six months before it was lost and replaced with this model. I bought this because of the low light capabilities. The SD 1200 zoom was much easier to use as it was on the back of the button and one could use one's thumb to manuveur it.
