There’s nothing more satisfying than taking great pictures! And with the Canon PowerShot A1100 IS it’s so effortless. The 12.1-megapixel resolution and 4x optical zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer ensure radiant, detailed images. Plus, you’ve got an advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor with evolved Face Detection Technology and the Face Detection Self-Timer for extraordinary control and performance. Smart AUTO lets you handle challenging conditions with ease.
PowerShot A1100 IS Highlights
12.1-megapixel resolution, 4x optical zoom and Optical Image Stabilizer
With the PowerShot A1100 IS, dramatic, personal pictures have never been easier to shoot and share. This 12.1-megapixel digital camera lets you create impressive large photos of family and friends you’ll be proud to display. The high-resolution images taken by the PowerShot A1100 IS can be enlarged up to 13 x 19 inches.
The PowerShot A1100 IS is equipped with Canon’s acclaimed Optical Image Stabilizer Technology that automatically detects and corrects camera shake--one of the leading causes of fuzzy or blurred shots. Even when zoomed in, you can get the steady, crisp, brilliant images you’ll be proud to shoot and share. And Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer Technology is so convenient to use. It functions perfectly with or without a flash.
A World of Advantages with Canon’s Technology
The DIGIC 4 Image Processor has evolved Face Detection Technology that tracks the faces of moving subjects and lets the shooter enter the frame seamlessly with the Face Detection Self-Timer.
DIGIC 4 Image Processor
Canon’s most advanced image processor, DIGIC 4, delivers evolved Face Detection Technology that keeps every face in every photo looking its very best. The technology finds and tracks the faces of moving subjects until you’re ready to shoot, then delivers perfect focus. In addition, exposure, flash and white balance are compensated, so that faces exhibit natural skin tones and backgrounds are properly exposed.
iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.
A Face Detection Self-Timer automatically detects an increase in the number of faces and makes the appropriate adjustments. For instance, to include the photographer’s face in a group shot, there’s no need to rush in. Just put the camera on a stand or tripod, specify Face Detection Self-Timer, and the camera will wait for the photographer’s face to get on-camera before it takes the shot. Motion Detection tracks moving subjects in a much larger range--allowing you to wait for the perfect shot without refocusing.
DIGIC 4 also makes possible the i-Contrast (Intelligent Contrast Correction) system, which controls the compensation level in pixel units to brighten dark areas while leaving bright areas unchanged for better images where the main subject is dark, and more natural transition. The PowerShot A1100 IS can even use i-Contrast in playback mode to adjust images that were shot without the setting activated.
Red-eye Correction provides three options for removing red-eye from subjects in flash pictures. 1) Red-eye Correction during shooting actually identifies and corrects red-eye in human subjects as pictures are taken. 2) The PowerShot A1100 IS can be set to automatically detect and correct red-eye during image playback. 3) You can manually locate any red eyes in a scene during image playback on the LCD screen, and command the camera to remove them.
Life doesn’t give you second chances to capture special times. That’s why the PowerShot A1100 IS features an ISO 1600 setting that reduces the effects of camera shake and sharpens subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater shooting flexibility. ISO can be expanded to 3200 when you select ISO 3200 Special Scene mode.
Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper settings
Just set the Canon PowerShot A1100 IS to Smart AUTO and you’re ready for maximum enjoyment from your picture taking every time. It’s a relaxing and satisfying way to shoot because you can completely concentrate on your subject knowing that the camera has the technical details covered. Advanced Canon technology intelligently analyzes your situation and shooting conditions. Then it automatically selects an appropriate setting from 18 specially defined settings. So whether you’re photographing flowers, a captivating sunset, or your friends at the park, you can be confident that you’re getting dramatic, memorable images.
Advanced presets for the best possible photos under certain conditions. With 18 Shooting Modes including 9 Special Scene Modes, you’re ready for whatever shot comes your way

My mother also has this camera and she likes the feel of the camera. The same battery compartment that makes this model bigger than the Elph is a plus in her mind because it gives her something solid to wrap her fingers around.
Anyway, other reviews are more in depth, but I have to say one thing about the reviews that say the pictures are out of focus. This is going to sound stupid, but I had the same reaction when we took a few pictures on Christmas morning. I reviewed them on the LCD screen and they were horrible. I thought I got a lemon and was very disappointed. Then I realized there was a nearly invisible plastic protective sheet over the LCD. When I peeled that off, everything was perfect.
That may not be what happened to the others who complained about fuzzy photos, but I just wanted to make this clear (no pun intended) because I almost made a big mistake. So FYI: Unlike similar protective sheets I've seen on a hundred different products (I even leave them on my cell phones and such until they peel themselves off), on this camera that sheet is not clear, it makes everything look out of focus and it was hard to detect.
The camera itself and the software included with it are incredibly intuitive. Though there are many manual settings possible, I set the camera in Auto mode and just clicked away. Many places I took pictures required me to turn off the flash, but even those were very clear and bright, and I had to do nothing but aim and shoot.
The delay time between pictures was negligible, and the rechargeable AA batteries I used were good for around 200 pictures a charge, even using flash and with frequent zooming in and out. I used a 16 GB SDHC chip and had the capacity to take 5,000 pictures! I'm still working on filling the first chip!!
The provided software is also very simple to use...as easy as plugging in the provided USB cable, and turning the camera on. All pictures are quickly and automatically saved in folders by date regardless of how many times in a day you download them, and renaming or tagging pictures is a breeze. I have not even begun making full use of the picture touch-up features, but the software includes a fun and easy slideshow application that makes sharing pictures via desktop or projector a snap.
Overall, I could not be happier that I purchased this camera! I look forward to mastering all its features, but as a user-friendly, versatile, and inexpensive point-and-click camera, it blew away all my expectations. It does all that Canon says it does and makes taking pictures fun and easy, right out of the box!
Yes, I know that going from 8 to 12 is marginally better since we do not plan to print 11x17 poster size pictures. But, we upgraded for the following reasons:
1. The reviews were excellent from both amateurs and professionals both here and on other sites.
2. The AA battery is more convenient than carrying the older proprietary battery and charger from the 8MP model. Since you need to bring AA or AAA batteries along when you travel, this is not an added item but rather replaces the older battery and wall charger. This is expecially helpful when traveling abroad or for extended camping, hiking, or bike trips when you can change the AAs but not necessarily recharge via the wall charger.
3. The controls are more intuitive for my wife. With the 8MP, it was easy to set the camera in the video mode after previewing pictures already taken. Nothing more frustrating than wanting to see that special picture only to find that you had the camera in the video mode and had nothing to show. With this camera, it is much more clearly apparent which mode you have chosen and the preview mode has its own little button.
4. 4X zoom is better than the older 3X.
5. The optical viewfinder is a must and I would never recommend buying a camera without one. If you are so inclined, wait until you are out in the bright sun and cannot see the screen.
6. Small, sleek and fits anywhere.
On the down side:
1. It is a little slow at times, especially when saving the picture.
In all, a good choice. Why pay much more if you are looking for a familty-type use camera? We are happy with the performance of these Canon products and highly recommend them
