Customer Reviews:

  • Nice camera so far
    great portable size, like the black and white picture feature, easy to use, battery rechargable and small....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
  • Canon SD1100IS
    Nice pocket camera, clear too.
    Software and cables all included and easy to use....more info
  • Nice Camera
    I bought this to replace an old Canon Powershot that stopped working. Camera arrived promptly and is easy to start using right away, especially if you've used a Canon in the past. Image quality is very good, particularly indoors or shooting subjects against a bright background. I think image quality of all of these point and shoots has improved a lot over the last couple of years. Small and light enough to drop in a shirt or pants pocket. Pretty good value for the money. I have no significant complaints so far....more info
  • great camera
    the product lived up to my expectations. Easy to use , light weight and good pictures....more info
  • Canon PowerShot SD1100IS
    This may be a good camera, depending on what you want in a camera. I returned mine mainly because it does not have an internal memory. I find this to be a necessary requirement for a camera. The camera is also very small, great for my teenage kids, but too small for me to work comfortably. I do not like how the zoom control is on top; I like it on the back - much easier for me to use. Working through the menu seems very complicated, not easy like my Kodak Easyshare. ...more info
  • Very good camera
    This has proven as good as the hype was for such a small camera. It works fantastically well. The one thing we needed was a larger memory disk. Now we have that, we can take more pictures before one has to download them. Thank you Canon....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
  • Great!
    I bought this camera to replace the SD750 that I previously owned before it was stolen. The SD1100 was about $150 cheaper than the SD750 when I bought it and it has all the same features I was looking for, plus it comes in different colors (I got blue). It works great, has fun features (like highlighting a color so that everything else is b&w except for that color), and it's a good size for me. I love it! ...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 and Great Buy!
    This camera is so easy to operate. I priced this camera at local shops and found had the best price. Free shipping too....more info
  • Perfect!
    This was our third Canon, following an A60 and an S1IS. We couldn't be happier with it. Compact size, attractive aluminum case, easy to use controls and menus, fantastic battery life, great pictures, etc... No complaints whatsoever. We paired it with the recommended Canon "pleather" case, a 4gb card and an extra battery (not needed). We now have the best camera set up we've ever had. Fits in a purse or a pocket, and takes great pictures. ...more info
  • Quick shutter
    Canon PowerShot SD1100IS 8MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Blue)

    I bought this for my daughter and she just loves how fast the camera is She's got small children, and when they visited, she easily got pictures of the kids jumping in the pool, and even my husband throwing them up in the air. I'm not sure how fast the second picture is, but very pleased with camera--also, it has a viewfinder for sunny days...more info
  • Small, reliable, cheap
    We bought this to replace an old 4MP Nikon. The main reason we bought it is that it uses the same battery and charger as our older SD630. We paid $150, and I'm shocked to see what the price is up to now. I guess with it being replaced by the SD1200, that's the new cheap guy on the block (but it uses a different battery.)

    These cameras are great. The IS seems to work ok. They are small, and tough. This is the kind of camera you can take with you everywhere, just by keeping it in a pocket or purse. Plus you can't go wrong with the Canon name.

  • Great Little Camera
    Excellent value. Very good photos and easy to master controls. Slips into pocket or purse. Good battery life....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

  • 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
  • Best camera I've ever purchased
    I absolutely love this camera. The quality is on par with other cameras I've had but thanks to its image stability mechanism, its far more superior. The quality built is strong and slim, fits perfectly into my pockets. My only complaint about this product is the camera/video/view media switch on the back. It could have been better designed. Other than that, awesome product for its price range! I WOULD BUY IT AGAIN WITHOUT HESITATION....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
  • 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
  • Simple, Compact, and Good
    Easy to use, compact, lightweight and produces good quality images. Happy with purchase. No issues identified....more info
  • Great Camera
    This camera takes great pictures, but have had a little trouble with the software. Overall a good purchase.

  • 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
  • Lens Error
    Buyer Beware: I too have a Canon that was used very little and the lens locked up and the lens error message appeared. The camera worked great expect for this. Canon charges $85 for service for out of warranty cameras. The lens issue appears very common with many Canon models. Do a web search for this issue and you will see that this is very common. I will not buy any more Canon products....more info
