Excerpt: For the $$ that Canon charges for this "light-weight" camera, you should save up and get the DSL Cannon Rebel SX-20. It has over twice the capability, for a little less than double the amount you spend! It has TONS of more featues, than the Canon 1300 camera, with 5-7 times the zoom capabilty! The 1300, has a few problems..
Summary: There are many reviews for this camera... so I will just add in my comment without getting into the nitty-gritty. I have had this for a while now; several months. This camera, as some others have noted, just takes flat out poor pictures. I had a cheaper Sony P&S that was much older than this, and it had absolutely superior low ISO performance, and was faster too.
Excerpt: I bought this camera about one year ago and I am highly dissatisfied with its picture quality, especially in the evening, night and indoor photography where you use flash. Its automatic setting just does not do its job well. It makes your face bright like a surface reflecting light and rest of the areas remain shaded, so the flash does not throw the light evenly on the objects.

Pros: Excellent compact design. 720 P video with zoom while recording. Good photos in extremely bright light.
Cons: Unless you are taking photos outdoors in extremely bright sunlight, your photos (especially of people and especially if you use any zoom whatsoever) will be blurry. The less light/more zoom, the blurrier they get.
