Canon PowerShot A1300 Digital Camera Specifications

Complate Specification Kamis, 19 Juli 2012
The A1300 was launched in February 2012 as part of Canon's range of PowerShot cameras, as well as the A810, A2300, A2400 IS and A3400 IS. It is available in black and silver for around £94.

Canon PowerShot A1300 Features

The A1300 has a 16 megapixel sensor and 5x optical zoom lens, which is a 35mm equivalent of 28-140mm. It has Digital Image Stabilisation (IS) in order to combat camera shake to ensure photos and videos are as sharp as possible.

For the novice photographer there is Smart Auto which chooses the correct scene from 32 variables and adjusts the camera settings automatically. If you get stuck at any time there is a help button which gives guidance on using your camera and its different functions. The A1300 also have an optical viewfinder which is extremely unique for a budget compact camera.

There are a number of creative modes such as Fish-eye effect, Super Vivid, Poster, Toy Camera, Miniature and Monochrome. Live View Control allows you to experiment with picture settings like brightness and colour intensity, then preview the results while framing. Face Detection Technology detects up to 35 faces in a single frame making sure they remain in focus with optimum brightness. Face Detection White Balance ensures natural skin tones even in unusual lighting conditions with Auto Red-Eye Correction eliminating red-eye.

Canon PowerShot A1300 Handling

The A1300 has a plastic body, with a chunky side where the batteries are which aids grip. The buttons are large, easy to press and fairly typical for a compact camera with dedicated movie and help placed on the rear. The camera also has an easy to use menu system which is cycled through using the d-pad and func set button. When it is switched off, the playback button can be pressed to view your pictures and videos. The screen is fairly small at 2.7 inches but is bright, clear, and easy to see.

The batteries have a CIPA rating of 220 shots, we managed nearly 600 during testing, the number of shots you get will depend on the quality of batteries purchased. We tested the camera's performance at focusing, shutter response, shot-to-shot time, continuous shooting etc. and have posted the results below.
