Canon PowerShot A1300 Digital Camera Review

For those who demand a AA-powered camera, the A1300 is a fair model that holds up better than most.

Introduction

The PowerShot A1300 is a AA-battery powered compact, offered by Canon to appeal to old-fashioned (or well-prepared) shooters. But there's a lot more going for this little camera. It's very inexpensive, very small, very light, has a built-in optical viewfinder, and actually didn't test quite as poorly as we expected.

The A1300 is available now for $119.99, in black or silver.
