Canon PowerShot A1300 Digital Camera Review$119.99
This is only a 720p camera, though it is also possible to shoot in 480p. Standard definition videos are captured at 30 frames per second, though 720p footage seems to be 25 frames per second. Beyond this, there are no other video shooting options. Find out how the performed in our video image quality test./r:link_to_content
All of video shooting is essentially automatic, and it appears only two Scene modes are compatible with video: iFrame Movie and Miniature Effect, the latter of which severely limits frame rate.
Optical zoom is locked while a recording is in progress, a limitation that is becoming more and more dated as new cameras are released with this option intact.
Autofocus locks before each recording, but doesn't adjust continuously once a video is in progress. This means that if a subject gets closer to the camera they'll become more and more out of focus, that is, until a new recording starts.
Exposure is completely automated during video and there exists no way to change this.
A tiny mono microphone on the front panel is responsible for all audio recording, and it does a predictably mediocre job. There are no internal audio options of any kind.
