Canon PowerShot A1300 16.0 MP Digital Camera with 5x Digital Image Stabilized Zoom 28mm Wide-Angle Lens and 720p HD Video Recording (Silver) (OLD MODEL)

  • I shopped extensively before buying the A1300 Canon. I weighed the value of using a pair of AA cells versus a dedicated power pack. I included the ability to use rechargeable cells - the precharged cells with long shelf life. Because this is a grab-and-go camera, it needs to be ready at a moment\'s notice. AA cells are great for that. And it\'s the camera our 10 year old will use and he\'s not at all good about keeping his electronic gizmoz charged, so the AA feature is a plus there. I also like the optical view finder. Holding a camera at arm\'s length is the norm, but heads are fairly steady, so the camera is also quite steady when used with the optical finder. It\'s a simple tunnel, but it is accurate and simple. I also kept in mind the fact that this is a camera in the $100 price range and there is no reason to expect lens quality, flash range, manual control or any other feature to be equal to a camera in the $200 or higher price range. So we shopped and ordered from Amazon.Delivery was on time as expected. The camera came with all of the accessories listed in the ad - a very basic kit. Our first go with this piece was disappointing. It seems that even the major manufacturers can produce a dud from time to time. Our A1300 was a battery hog. I immediately contacted Canon through their website, explained the problem and what I had done to try to correct the problem. They asked that I return the camera to them and the replacement arrived in less than one week. The new one is spot-on.So what about the A1300? The AUTO function is impressive. It does more than I ever expected a point and shoot to do - automatically. The color brightness and focus are good and the photo details are great. I don\'t see any odd colors and it does adjust to ensure people are people colored, no matter what the color of the people. So if the photos from the A1300 are good, How good is good? My Canon S3 takes a VERY GOOD photo. My friends Canon EOS DSLR takes EXCELLENT photos. It\'s not an issue of photo size, it\'s quality and clarity. And this little camera holds it\'s ground very well. I also have a lesser brand camera about the same size as the A1300 that takes poor quality photos. Sure I can tell what the photo is, who is in it and where we were, and the features of that one are excellent but it\'s just not crisp in the details. So in my opinion, a good photo is one that doesn\'t give me any particular reason to complain. I\'m sure there are aberations that a pro could find in a detailed review, but that\'s not why I got this camera. This one is in the glove box, in the pocket of my motorcycle jacket and at family functions where I don\'t want the obvious BIG camera that makes people nervous. It takes a far better photo than my cell phone.At full optical zoom at about 150 feet I can count the blades of grass in my neighbor\'s lawn with the camera set at 16mp. I am not used to having such a wide angle on a digital camera and I am getting scenery shots that look great. It handles the light whether I am shooting into the sun or with the sun at my back. I have not tried some of the special programs offered, but of the ones that I have tried, the low light setting allows me to get very nice photos in museum lighting. The Stealth option is both low light and silent so the camera is not a bother when discretion is needed. And the digital IS mode works well. I\'m past my prime and I\'m not as steady as I once was. Our boy is young and is also not rock steady. Digital IS gives us a good shot every time. The video function gives me bright and clear HD videos - or far more compact 640x480 videos. I wish the zoom worked with in video mode but that\'s one thing I gave up in this price range. For motorcycle trips with the guys, it\'s great to be able to set the camera to 640x 480 and just shoot lots of pics that are easy to email and look fine on the computer monitor. Shooting one handed as I ride doesn\'t always get me a great shot, but if I shoot enough shots I get plenty of great photos to share. Fun - cheap - reliable - great quality. What else could I ask from a $100 price range camera? But, you don\'t want to drop it into the lake. That\'s another story and there are far better models if that\'s part of your plan.
  • For background: we\'ve had a Canon A20, with a magnificent 2 Megapixels (grin), for the last 10 years. One was stolen in airport baggage (my stupidity for packing it). I was thankfully able to buy a replacement A20 on e-Bay. So we have been quite content for about 10 years. This A20 has been bulletproof, you might say. Fast Forward to 2012. My spouse wanted a smaller, lighter camera--No problem......But I wanted an optical viewfinder--BIG problem; hardly anyone makes them any more. Thank you Canon, for still providing this feature.For those of you wondering what is this -- an optical viewfinder? It is simply a camera that you place up against your cheek, and perhaps use the zoom buttons, to compose the picture. This is how you used to do it with film cameras, before LCD screens were even invented. Single-Lens-Reflex (SLR) cameras, that cost vastly more, use this method, although with vastly improved optics. The alternative is to hold your (non-viewfinder) camera out at arm\'s length. Which results in:-- Get out your glasses, cuz you can\'t see enough detail on the toy screen.-- Then, when you finally see your pix, you realize that your cam is unsupported--this will cause BLUR. So you have to take another...-- Then, you hit your forehead with your fist (in anguish) as you realize that the sun is shining so strongly that you cannot see anything on the little screen at all.Then, you retire to the bar and regret not buying a camera with an optical viewfinder. Get \'em while they last. For the price of a bottle of Champagne, you could have bought this camera. Attention: you can still use the LCD screen at arm\'s length on this camera if you wanna.The other reviews are great; I wanted to call out great emphasis on the viewfinder. Sports and wildlife photographers rely on such viewfinders, since they can track, zoom, and compose a shot (in a fraction of a second) which would be impossible with an LCD display.For those of you thinking of using a cellphone or an i-Pad for photography, fuhgettaboudit. Their pix are horribly granulated (few pixels & small sensors), and as with any handheld, the blurring is atrocious. I know; I\'ve tried. Try not to shame yourself by sharing such pictures.This camera is magnificent. Over the years I have done darkroom film development, printed enlargements from the negatives, carried camera bags full of changeable lenses for my SLR, had slide projectors; now this is all I need. I can\'t imagine spending money on a more expensive camera, unless you want to move up to a nice SLR, but that will be bulky and heavy. This cam is 6oz, versus 12.5 for my beloved old A20.I find that most of my relatives and friends take lots of pictures (be it on a cellphone or camera) and then never DO ANYTHING with them. They are not shared with anyone, and mostly just sit on chips or CDs in drawers. So it is worthwhile to point out that this camera includes Canon\'s album software; the chip pops out for easy unloading (or use the cable connector)--to help us get organized.If you would like a case for this, consider the \"Lowepro - Tahoe 10 Digital Camera Bag - (various colors)\" which is a softcase. I\'ve done trial fits at Beste Buye and it works fine. I ended up buying the Kodak \"Essentials\" hard case. The Case Logic units that I tried were a tad too small.A final word on chargers and batteries. There is no charger. This cam uses two AA batteries; if you need them they are globally available from Topeka to Taipei to Tuscany. If you buy a charger camera, consider: You have one more charger to carry. You already have phone chargers, GPS chargers, Blackberry/i-Pad/PC chargers. Some have two different cables: one 12-volt for a car, and one 120-volt for the wall. Does your cam charger work on dual-voltage 120/220? If not you will need to buy a second one (220v) at great expense for overseas travel. Not to mention another prong-converter for when you finally travel overseas. Ugh. [But do see notes on rechargeables in the Comments On This Review, below]Shopping notes: This camera does NOT come with a memory card (but does have batteries). Amazon has a good 4GB SD card for about $6. Add it to your shopping cart. When checking out, do NOT buy either of these things with 1-Click, or you will lose free shipping. Add them to the cart, then go to checkout, then change the shipping method to \"free shipping\", then complete.Please comment if you have issues and I will try to address them. Cheers y\' ooo xxxPS. For me the image size is important for some of my software (it probably won\'t matter to most people) so just be aware: The A1300 can be set to take 640x480, 1600x1200, or any of 3 even larger formats. My old A20 could take 1024x768 format, but that is not available on the A1300.
