For fuss-free shooting, Canon's Smart AUTO mode automatically analyzes the scene and sets the best exposure based on 18 predefined shooting situations. For shooting under low lighting conditions, the ISO sensitivity of the PowerShot SD1300 IS can be dialed up to 1600, and when shooting in Low Light mode, expanded as high as an equivalent of ISO 6400.

    Canon 4214B006AA reviews

    PowerShot SD1300 IS Digital ELPH Camera (Silver) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 306.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Camera for On The Go! I'm a long time Canon DSLR user, so when I decided I wanted a point and shoot to carry around with me for day to day life, I of course chose Canon. This little camera is great! It takes great pictures, has a large screen, and is easy to use. I use it for candid photography, since I have a DSLR for more important situations. It works great for what I need it for. However it does not have different settings such as action, landscape, outdoor, etc. like many point and shoots do. It still takes great pictures automatically whatever my needs are, however. This camera also feels secure. A lot of other cameras I held felt really cheap, but this one doesn't.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little on-the-go camera I bought this photo because my 8 year old Canon Elph finally died on me and I was tired of lugging my DSLR around with me to take quick snapshots. I love having a small camera to keep in my diaper bag, purse or pocket. The start up time and shutter lag on this camera are minimal (though certainly noticeable if you're used to an SLR). The camera takes good, fast photos, even in the auto mode. My only complaints with the camera come from being so used to using an SLR: the shutter lag is noticeable (though shorter than other similar cameras I tried before buying this one) and the image quality is not as good as an SLR. For my purposes, however, it's a great little camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent little Point & Shoot camera! Our 10 year old Canon PowerShot camera just gave up the ghost this past month so we decided to stick with Canon again and we were not disappointed! We were delighted that the camera arrived within days of ordering and we used it right away. We were amazed at the sleekness and compactness of the design but it does not compromise on the quality of pictures that it takes. It is very easy to use and the pictures it takes are awesome. The only downside of it is when you are recording a video and use the zoom the audio cuts out just a bit. All in all, it's a great Point & Shoot camera and we would highly recommend it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price This is a solid point & shoot. Great for the pocket, although I have an older one (400 series) which is heavier but has a solid metal body which I prefer. The 1300 is slimmer, much lighter, but I haven't dropped it yet so I can't comment on its durability in that regard yet (my 400 survived numerous drops and still works well). Traded up because this was reasonably priced for double the image resolution. Still won't replace my DSLR, but for casual parties, discrete tourist photos, or just keeping in a backpack it takes great pictures. I do wish there was less lag, but you can't have everything. For the size and the price it was a great purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera! I just got back from a trip to Costa Rica where I had the opportunity to try out my camera for the first time. (I purchased it just two days before this trip.) The wide angle lens was great for scenic shots; the color was vibrant and captured the colors of the rainforests and oceans; the settings were abundant and fit all the situations I found myself in; the resolution is great (12.1)! I would like to improve the night vision setting as the flash was too bright for certain shots. Also, not sure if it is waterproof and could have used that information in the light rain I found myself in. Overall, a very good, solid camera that takes fabulous pictures!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT IS CLASSY AND IT TAKES GREAT PICTURES I am going to try to share what I have discovered about this camera. These are just my thoughts. Some things I am compairing to a canon SD1200 and the SD940. The flat button arangement is the same as the SD1200 all but the power button on top is larger and easier to turn off and on,I like that but be carefull it does not come on in your pocket. I have not had any trouble using any of the buttons even with my big old hands. I like that the mic for the video is in the frount of the camera instead of being on the top like the canon SD940,it picks up less noise being in the frount. I like the func menu(where you set iso, white ballance, my colors) better than the SD940 because it lets you set things with one less step like the SD1200 and it has a better color skeem(the color of the menus) than the canon 1200, that just me though. I can not tell any differnce in shot to shot or flash shot to shot times between the SD1300 and the SD1200 which is 1 and 1/2secs to 2secs with out flash and 3 to 4secs with flash on(up to 6secs for full flash recharge). Shutter lag is good for a canon point and shoot but if you prefocas that will help even more. I never tested the continuous shooting( but see my battery test) but canon says it is 0.9 per sec where the sd 1200 is 1.4 shots per sec, if that is important to you. I did test the battery by using continuous shooting with the flash on and got well over 400 pictures and still had 3 bars left on the battery icon and it was taking 1 picture every 2 seconds or less if that helps you out on the continuous shooting part and when I turned the flash off it seemed to be very fast. I am getting about the same image quality as the SD 1200 which is very good for this size point and shoot camera and getting a 2.7inch very clear LCD screen and a 28mm x 112mm lens a little better (than the 35 x 105 on the SD1200). This is just me but I would stay away from the auto mode indoors(it works good outdoors in bright light though), it seems to want to use a very high iso which makes your picture look grainy or snowing looking, it would be ok for 4x6x prints?. I use program mode and set the iso to 100 or 200 iso (if possable).For some reason canon has done this wih all thier newer point and shoot cameras the last year or two, I know (it is a bummer)... With the SD1200 and SD940 I would use program mode and auto iso but when trying to do that with the SD1300 it wants to go to 500iso some times where the 1200 and 940 would go to 250iso ,go figure? A lot of the review sites blow thier pictures way up and look for defects,your likely to only make 5x7 or 8x10s and not see (what they see). If you are going to make larger prints you could go to a canon S90 or the bigger G11, but much more money I know!>Just keep the iso down and you will do good...) Just a thought I wish they would of stayed at 10 megapixles because of the small sensor... The SD1300 has a touch more style, larger LCD and a little more virsatle lens, but the 1200 is also a very good camera. Try (neutral) in (my colors menu) and see what you think with your indoor shots of the kids if your not happy with the default color? I posted some pictures on this site for the SD1300, theirs just not much color her yet but they will give you some idea untill some one can post some good pictures. I mostly take pictures of bear in the smokey mountians (CADES COVE) and love chaseing the grand kids around taking their pictures

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Photos I don't understand the high ratings for this camera. My 4 1/2 year old Sony DSC-W5 at 1MP takes better photos than the SD1300 at 12MP. I tried both the Smart Auto and Programmed AE modes. Indoor photos with and without flash are washed out compared to the scene and what the DSC-W5 captured using the same field of view. The W5 produced sharper, better focused pictures than the Canon SD1300. Outdoor daylight color balance also seems to be off compared to the W5. The mode switch is difficult to operate, it is very easy to go from Smart Auto to Movie mode when you are trying to switch to the Programmed mode.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera I got this camera recently for my wife to replace an older Canon SD camera that had been dropped to the point that it was literally falling apart at the seams. This has been an excellent replacement camera. Picture quality is good, viewfinder is large and vibrant, and it does an admirable job of honing in on the subjects of the pictures...especially challenging when the subjects are two cats and two little girls under the age of ten! The *only* downside we've encountered so far is that the refresh rate between pictures is slower than the competition and slower than we'd like, but we have been able to work with it. I would definitely recommend this.
