Prior to purchasing my Canon A1100 Powershot, I read a number of Canon Powershot A1100 reviews and I've got to say that on the whole, they have turned out to be quite accurate. The A1100 is a really well made camera with a feature set that makes it comparable to more expensive cameras. Indeed, this feature packed camera takes some of the best pictures around.
One of the features that all of the Canon Powershot A1100 reviews picked up on was its 12 Megapixel resolution – which is a particularly good resolution for a camera in this price range. The camera has an LCD for easy viewing but also has an optical viewfinder, a feature that you'll be hard pressed to find on cameras in the same price range.
A really nice feature on the Canon Powershot A1100 is that it offers a menu with 10 shooting options. This gives you plenty of picture-taking options no matter what your skill level. In addition to taking still photos, you also have the ability to shoot short movies. The point and shoot technology is great for beginners because you can simply take pictures. The A1100 reviews I read made mention of the automatic scene recognition and advanced auto face-detect features and how they'd help you take perfect pictures every time. It's early days as far as my experience of the A1100 is concerned, but that far my reality is matching up with the picture that was painted in the reviews.
If you want good picture quality at a reasonable price then the Canon Powershot A1100 offers just that. The picture quality of Canon cameras has always reliable, and the Powershot series has been no exception. The camera is compact but still well built and easy to grip. The case is molded for easy handling and comes in a variety of colors.
Both the Canon Powershot A1100 reviews I read and my own personal experience have led me to believe that both the features and quality of this camera are excellent. If you're after a camera that is reliable, takes high quality pictures and has plenty of extra features, you'll be happy with the Canon Powershot A1100 camera.
