Not being very technically minded, this camera is so simple to use, easy to read menus and that must have view finder for those of us who just cannot see screens in bright sunlight.
Bad points:
Did not come with a memory card - have to buy that separate

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I owned the Canon Powershot A1200, but unfortunately it was stolen. I was so pleased with it and now they have brought the A1300 out I purchased this model. Having a viewfinder is a definite plus.
Bad points:
None.

Chris, Experienced amateur

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Compact, and easy to use
Bad points:
Images are awful. Not at all sharp, and lots of image noise. The camera was bough to replace a 5 year old camera, but the picture quality is worse. I expected better from Canon.

Sheila, Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Small and light enough for my pocket and a small handbag. It does all I ask of it, but does not replace my 2 expensive (but heavy) Olympus cameras. A nice little back up and quick snap camera.
Bad points:
It is light on battery use, but its a shame that I have to carry a bunch of penlight batteries.
