Excerpt: This version of the cannon power shot is well designed, fits nicely in different bags, is durable and easy to use. what i dont like is the features that have been taken off such as the number of options in the "my colors" feature..but overall its a very nice camera.
Excerpt: I bought this camera a few months ago and the first few days I really enjoyed it. Pictures were coming out great and the camera had so many features to choose from. I also bought it on sale so not that much mone was spend on what I thought was an excellent purchase! However, for some reason, the more I used it, the worse the photos were coming out. I have a toddler, so most of the photographs I take come out blurry because he would be running around everywhere.
Canon - PowerShot SD1300 IS / IXUS 105 ok pictures bad design
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Canon - PowerShot SD1300 IS / IXUS 105 has ok pictures quality but bad design. The pop up flash is on a real bad location. Focus hunts and is not always in focus. Don't try to use in in dim settings. It is easy to use, it gives great pictures, I was able to open up the box and get it start taking pictures right away.
The Canon Powershot SD1300 came highly recommended.

Excerpt: It came highly recommended from a friend at work that had tried out MANY different cameras before selected this one. I did alot of research and looking at reviews online before deciding on this camera. I bought it and loved it soo much i bought another one for my family for christmas. Although, as with most cannons from what i have heard the delay time when taking a picture is a little slow.
Excerpt: I have been using the Powershot SD700 for years now, but after the camera batter failed to hold a charge for longer than a day worth of pictures I decided it was time to upgrade. I saw the SD1300 on sale on Black Friday for around $90 so I grabbed it instantly! Overall I’m disappointed with the camera. I thought it would be a step up from my SD700, but it feels like the only benefit is the higher megapixels. The body of the camea feels very light and plasticy, like a...
Canon's SD1300 proves itself but still seems lacking.

Excerpt: The battery life was horrible. That's what I have to start out with. It was probably due to the huge screen viewfinder but to be honest, Canon could have made it dimmer and more eco-friendly in lasting longer. I would rather get a DSLR with detachable batteries instead of this so-called "portable" digital camera which wasn't too portable since the batteries kept dying on me.
Excerpt: I owned 3 differnt canon cameras in the last 10 years, and I upgrade my camera once every several years. This little camera inherits the features its predecessor has - compact, estremely lightweight, stylish, with basic functions you need for most of the times. I can easily put it into my pocket without being known. One major upgrade compared with the previous model is the LCD screen size, not it has 2.7 inch, though I wish it's 3 inch.
Excerpt: Pros from Canon 1300: -Familiar Canon menus and more simple menu similar to Canon's SLR's. -Power button, shutter release and zoom ring were all in a comfortable layout and good spot for my hands, which aren't huge for a guy, but I just can't comfortably hold Canon's 780,940,1400 point and shoot bodies for long. - This is nerdy, but the 1300 is capable of using the SDXC cards, a step up from SDHC, that will become a standard sooner or later.
Excerpt: I just purchased this camera & am considering returning it (even though I will have to pay a 15% restocking fee). This is somewhat an easy camera to use, but the color quality is poor & I tend to have blurry pictures. The black & white feature does not take crisp black & whites - they're pretty fuzzy..
