Canon PowerShot A1300 Digital Camera Review$119.99
The top spot on the directional pad controls shooting mode, and swaps between fully automatic and everything else. This is a partial scene selecting auto mode, so the software automatically adapts to macro shooting conditions if necessary. While using auto, it's still possible to adjust flash, self-timer, and a few other settings. That's nice for moderately experienced users, we just hope that flexibility advantage doesn't scare off beginners.
In Program mode, it still isn't possible to control shutter and aperture manually, but all other shooting variables are unlocked, including ISO, white balance, self-timer, continuous shooting, etc. We spent most of our time in Program.
There are five different shooting resolutions available, from full quality options down to space-saving low-res versions. There's also a widescreen option for native output to an HDTV.
