Operation is dead simple. Turn the camera on, select one of the three positions on the sliding mode switch (auto, program, movie), aim the camera at your subject, compose the image you want on the LCD, and push the shutter button. The SD1300 could be the poster child for Point & Shoot digicams. The SD1300 IS’s Auto White Balance mode does an outstanding job. Colors are bold, bright, and generally accurate, but this camera, like many of its peers, struggles with getting purple just right.
In many ways the SD1300 IS is seems to be a rather generic ultra-compact digicam, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. So far the pictures are pretty good, its very easy to use, and it appears to be fairly sturdy. For those who want an optical viewfinder, there may still be some discounted “on-hand” stock SD1200 IS models available. Our full review of the Canon Powershot SD1300 IS is in the works and will appear shortly.
