Customer Reviews:

    Good picture quality. Easy to operate. Good autofocus.
    Uploading is quick, easy, and straightforward; without resorting to the bundled software that the manual implies you have to use....more info

  • A very happy Canon customer
    I recently purchased a Canon PowerShot 1100 through Amazon. With regard to Amazon, I was extremely pleased with the speed of delivery and the quality of packaging - no problems there! And the camera is amazing! For something so tiny, it's packed with features. I think the feature that surprised me the most was the movie capabilities - I guess I'd missed that on the specs. It's also easy to use, which is especially important to me since I'm still having trouble setting up my address book in my cell phone. The pictures so far are superior in color and clarity to my Olympus 35 MM point-and-shoot: not bad, considering I've been very happy with the Olympus. All in all, a great experience!...more info
  • Great Quality.
    We originally bought the Plum colored Nikon CoolPix and the picture quality was horrible. This camera blows that one away for quality. Both cameras were pretty easy to use so only quality was the difference. And it was a BIG difference....more info
  • Good starter camera
    I had an older Canon PowerShot that I loved, and it broke after like 4 years (I must have dropped it and the inner screen shattered), so I purchased this Canon PowerShot SD1100IS in blue (cheapest color).

    Very easy to use, uses an SD card that I can pop in and out of my computer or switch out.
    Rechargeable battery (comes with charger)
    Large view screen
    Good picture quality
    When you switch from "take picture" to "view picture," the lens doesn't close (this could be a pro or con, as I see why they do it, but it kinda annoys me)
    Very small - fits in a purse or pocket fairly easily (this is my favorite part)

    3x zoom isn't much, so it's hard to take wider or closer shots
    Something is wrong with the flash I think - I've had problems taking pictures in various light settings, and I can't figure out how to adjust the light settings.
    On that note, there are a lot fewer user settings than the older version of the camera, so you can't do quite as much (e.g., no "redeye" setting).
    Battery does wear out over time (don't overcharge!), and a new battery costs almost half of the cost of a new camera.
    Obviously, it can break, as my last one did.

    So get a case with it!

  • Great Camera! Great Price. Performs like a much more expensive camera.
    I go through a lot of cameras so I have tried many different models in many different price ranges. This is on the lower price end of the ones I have owned but I am still impressed with the pictures it takes. It is not going to give the the same quality as a SLR or even G series camera but for point and shoot you can't go wrong with this camera. It is super light and small enough to fit in your pocket so you can take it everywhere you go. I noticed that I took more pictures when I owned this camera just because of the fact that I had it on my at all times. Larger cameras you need to where on your belt or around your neck and it is just to inconvenient to take them everywhere except for special occasions. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone who is thinking of buying it. Also Canon is my favorite brand of digital camera for overall quality of photos and size and look of the cameras themselves. You will be happy! ...more info
  • Good ultracompact
    I got two of these, one for me and one for my wife. The camera is well-constructed, with a solid feel despite its diminutive size. I dropped mine on the first day (onto cobblestones) and it survived with a minor scratch.
    Picture quality is very good. The menus are fairly clear, and settings can be customized to your taste. It does take some navigating through the menu tree to make changes, but that is the universal drawback with ultracompacts (not many dedicated buttons).Overall, an excellent buy....more info
  • Excellent!
    As you you see from those observations from the person who bought it of this Canon PowerShot 1100IS (also named IXUS 80IS), most have good evaluation of it. Well, it is awesome....more info
  • Amazing!
    I fretted and fretted about which camera to buy. I read everything on the web and still wasn't sure so I took a leap of faith and I have not been disapointed in the least. Very powerful camera considering its size. Takes incredible pictures and is very fast. Best decision I ever made. Would recommend this camera to anyone including novice to expert. The camera shoots amazinginly well....more info
  • Cannon Powersopt review

    Plus it small & compact....more info
  • Great Camera
    This isn't the favorite over at cnet right now, but fits most budgets (good for me because I'm in college). It has a lot of features, shoot modes and excellent quality photos, video and sound!

    Shipped on time and with all documents included--perfect buy! ...more info
  • Great Camera and fast shipping, good price.
    We are enjoying these cameras in our elementary school. Good quality pictures with minimum skills....more info
  • Love the little canons
    this is a wonderful little camera with video capabilities.
    just don't drop it in the sand at the beach.......not even once, like i did. This is the replacement for an older model which was excellent until the sand got in the lens.....then it couldn't move to focus....bummer.
    anyway don't even think twice these are great little cameras....more info
  • Finally found the best camera
    I will put it this way - the best of the best. I used to have few cameras and all of them left us totally unsatisfied, but this one is something. We heavily are using this camera for the last 10 months - our son was born and we made more than 4000 pictures by now. Considering the fact that we were making pictures and videos of a small baby and of a baby-on-a-move the percentage of good pictures and videos is nearly 95%. Very impressive. I would recommend EVERYONE. Very good purchase - all-in-one!...more info
  • Amazing
    It is a great camera. Not the newest version but it takes amazing pictures. ...more info
  • Nice for the price
    This camera is very nice for the low price that was paid. It has most of the functions that I wanted. The only down side that I have found is you can not quick snap pictures in sequence. It take about 3 seconds for the next picture to take which for a cheap camera is pretty good....more info
  • Wonderful camera
    Gift for a friend in the Philippines who used another friend's same item and loved it. Now sho loves her own....more info
  • Great camera for the price
    This camera is great. Not super glitzy and isn't gonna take the pictures you see in magazines, but for the price, this thing takes pictures just as well as some of my friend's cameras, which they paid twice the price. Thumbs up!...more info
  • Great Camera
    This camera takes great pictures, but have had a little trouble with the software. Overall a good purchase.

  • Great Camera
    I just bought this camera to replace my Samsung Digimax A7 which only last about 2 1/2 years, so I am hoping to get more from my Cannon. Shipping was super fast, it is very small which I like. I only gave it 4 stars because I did find it a bit hard to use. I am also still searching for a reset button if there is such a thing, I would like to get the camera back to how it came new. I guess I will have to play around a little more with it. Overall great pictures and video. I took it outside today and it did a really nice job on taking outdoor photos. SO far I am happy with this purchase. ...more info
  • great camera
    the product lived up to my expectations. Easy to use , light weight and good pictures....more info
  • Great price for a fantastic little camera
    We've had another digital for years but I really wanted a new one and a compact camera. This one is fantastic, takes great pictures, and the transfer of the images to my computer is easy. The only thing I'd say, for potential buyers, is be prepared to buy a larger memory card. The one that comes with the camera holds very few images. I made sure to look for a camera that had an optical viewfinder (not just the LCD viewfinder as that can be hard to use in bright light). This was the only quality camera of this size that had the optical viewfinder and I've already found it useful....more info
