If the subject is moving, the camera takes 3 successive shots, then automatically saves the clearest image.

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Beginner's Camera

Pros: This camera has good quality at max zoom if the user holds it steady. I bought this camera to use on vacation and found it quite up to the task of capturing memories. This was my first real experience with a digital camera and after reading the basic manual I found I was able to get the hang of it fairly quickly. The detail of the photos is superb.

Cons: I wished the LCD screen cycled faster when saving a shot. I believe I could still take pictures faster but the LCD screen takes a few seconds to clear the shot. I could use the view finder to take a rapid shot but it's a lot harder to see exactly how the picture will turn out through this view. This was a minor thing. The default setting for the quality is the highest setting so 10 minutes of video ended up being 1.5 Gigabytes. Perhaps the default should be on a lower quality setting. The basic manual doesn't say how to change this but I believe the digital manual will. Again, a minor issue.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm very happy with this product. I know I'm not a camera or photography enthusiast so I bought this as a beginner's camera. I believe this product will work as a stepping stone to a more advanced (and expensive camera). I have friends who have Canon cameras which are still working fine after 10 years of use. It's a quality brand and the price was right.

4 out of 5 eggsMic too sensitive

Pros: Still uses AA batteries. Simplified menu, but requires lots of navigation.

Cons: I have waited 7 years to get another point and shoot camera. My choices are becoming fewer and further between as manufacturers build in planned obsolescence by switching to unique LI batters per camera.

My previous camera is the Canon A300 and it has been (and still is) indispensable. My biggest gripe is the sensitivity of the A1300 mic. It is hard not to capture the noise of your fingers moving on the camera body. It is noisier than you would expect. I think it has to do with the flat black body. A gloss black might have lessened this.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Got it on sale. It's a good camera for simple photography, but still cannot beat a good DSLR. Also, it's a Canon.

Cons: Didn't come with a case like Canon cameras used to, cheapskates.

Other Thoughts: I needed a replacement for my 6 year old Canon point & shoot so this was perfect. Canon rules and Nikon drools.
