Canon PowerShot A1300 Digital Camera Review$119.99
Resolution of detail is actually rather impressive at the center of the frame, but falls off steeply as we move outward. In many tested regions detail dips below 500 MTF50s. That's very low, and indicative of a cheap lens, but not entirely unexpected from this model. For best results, keep your most important subjects, like faces, in the center of the frame. More on how we test sharpness.
The A1300 is only capable of "digital" image stabilization, which simply increases shutter speed to reduce motion blur. Maximum resolution is also reduced in this mode, therefore we do not test it. For effective image stabilization, check out the slightly more expensive Canon A2400 IS, or last year's Samsung PL120.
