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.
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

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. It has a delay and it's too slow in taking pictures. In low or moderate light with no flash a shadow turns into a smudge.
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.
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...I don't like that.
