This review is from: Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Green 12.1 MP 4X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

Pros:

great price. easy to use. has many features you won't find in a camera for that price. the pictures are as a good as any canon i've owned. the canon software is great, as usual.

Cons:

i wish canon would take the lead and add a more tactile grip to these cameras since i always feel like i'm going to drop it at any second. the printed manual should have included more details about the camera use. it is difficult to manually control the focus for some shots and some of the settings are overly complicated. the zoom and autofocus are a bit slow but only a tad more than the sd1100 i had. I don't know if i would use this for indoor sports shots unless you had great lighting.

Other Thoughts:

i don't normally leave a review because i'm a leech, but when i saw this on sale and saw some of the negative comments, i felt compelled to respond. i'm not a digiphile but i used to own an sd1100 which i liked so well i gave to my son. then my canon xti was stolen, but i didn't want to shell out a lot of money for another camers, so when i bought this a couple of months ago i was skeptical that i would get anything close to those. not so. this camera is great for the price. it's not nearly as easy to control as the xti or sd1100 but it has has everything you need in basic family and occasional use camera and in that mode, takes pictures just as good as those other canon brands. does use up batteries fast but i went to the air show with 4 nimh batteries (1800) and had power left over from a whole day of shooting, so your mileage may vary.
