Canon PowerShot A1100 review

 

A fully featured compact camera with a disappointing screen

Old-school viewfinder ; Nice pictures ; Digic4 processor

Price ; Poor LCD screen

With a few more features than some of it's brethren, the A480 is a fully featured compact that is unfortunately a bit too pricey to recommend

Canon PowerShot A1100 IS

 

The Canon A1100 IS has been released with its compact partner, the A2100 IS - both of which feature a high 12.1-megapixels, but the A1100 IS hasn't come in cheap, breaking the £200 mark.

It's over-priced for the features onboard, but if you're looking for a fun, easy to use compact, this compact is the one for you.

Canon Powershot A1100 IS

 

This camera is all about picture quality. It is not small enough to fit into a pocket and it does not have a sleek, stylish design, but it takes a very good picture. It offers a clear step up from more basic entry level digital cameras.

Picture quality - viewfinder - start up time

Shutter delay with flash

Picture quality with the Canon Powershot A1100 IS is surprisingly good. It may not win too many beauty contests, but this is one of those digital cameras that does exactly what it sets out to do. That is take excellent pictures given more or less any...

Canon PowerShot A1100 IS

 

The Canon PowerShot A1100 is a solid shooter, but it's practically identical to last year's model.

Fast. Superb image quality. 4x optical zoom.

Bulky. Low-resolution screen.

Canon PowerShot A1100 IS

Viewfinder; simple operation; inexpensive; excellent photo quality for the money.

Mixed performance; short battery life.

Aside from a couple performance quibbles, the Canon PowerShot A1100 IS provides a good point-and-shoot experience with great pictures as a result.

Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Point-and-Shoot Review

 

Very good image quality ; Sturdy design with simple interface

Mediocre LCD screen ; Optical viewfinder shows 85% of scene

A great value for the price, with better image quality than more expensive cameras and a nice feature set.

Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Review

 

The Canon PowerShot A1100 IS is a brand new member of the popular PowerShot A-series range of compact digital cameras, which has traditionally offered a compelling combination of features and affordable price. The A1100 IS replaces the PowerShot A1000...

At first glance the new Canon Powershot A1100 IS looks very similar to its bigger brother, the A2100. I reviewed both cameras at the same time and actually preferred the slightly cheaper A1100 model in many ways. Although offering a smaller,...
