Canon PowerShot A1300 Digital Camera Review$119.99
Trailing is not a problem for video content shot with the A1300, however compression artifacting is very noticeable, especially on fixed surfaces. General smoothness could also be much better, severe judder affects moving objects throughout the frame. In the sample below, pay attention to the moving train to see this problem. More on how CamcorderInfo tests motion.
Video sharpness is pretty much average, but for a camera of this price that's impressive in a way. The A1300 can resolve 500 lw/ph of detail horizontally and 450 lw/ph vertically in moving scenes. By comparison, the Canon A2400 IS was capable of only 400 lw/ph along each axis. More on how CamcorderInfo tests video sharpness.
Low Light Sensitivity
The A1300 is also slightly more sensitive in low light than the A2400. In order to collect 50 IRE of video data, illumination of 21 lux was required, compared to the A2400's 25 lux. This still isn't an especially impressive score, especially compared to any camcorder, but we've seen much less sensitivity from many ultracompacts, even expensive ones.
