Canon is not improving with newer models
27 September 2013
Summary: This version of the Elph series purports to be better than prior versions but all of the added bells and whistles (that add to the cost) create visual noise in the photos (a grainy appearance) particularly when shots are taken in low light.
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.
Extreme disappointment for a canon; look elsewhere for a decent P&S

Summary: I was so impressed with my previous powershot from way back in the day, but when it broke from a bad fall, I went ahead and replaced it with this one. Needless to say the difference I found between the two was seriously disappointing.
Summary: My daughter received this camera for Christmas. It's very easy to use (especially for beginners). It's lightweight and takes good photos. However, once you use the digital zoom, the quality is GREATLY reduced. Also, within 8 months of having it, a dark smudge appeared on the photos.
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.
Summary: Build quality and overall look of the camera is great. Picture quality is terrible though compared to my Kodak M530. You'll definitely need to sharpen the photos on the computer as the ones straight out the camera are kinda fuzzy. Also beware, low light quality is poor.
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.
