      Not so great: two AA batteries rather than
      a lithium battery: not what I expected.

      Comments about Canon Powershot A1300 Silver 16 Megapixel Digital Camera:

      I needed another camera with an eye viewfinder.....the LCD screens just don't get it in certain lighting. Buying this camera was the result of a lot of searching. Using 2 AA batteries was a surprise....didn't know that was a option anymore. I think I like that feature instead of buying an extra battery to always have one charged up! And then, you have to be where you CAN charge it and have extra cables for the car, etc!!! I can get batteries anywhere.....remember those days?
      This camera is handy and just the right weight in your hand.

        I use this camera at graduations & on trips & around the house. It is absolutely the best digital camera I have ever owned. It is great in low light & the image stabilizer is awesome. It is so good that I ordered a 2nd one for my sister-in-law. The viewfinder makes it great for outdoor photo's when the sun blacks out the view screen. I would reccomend it for anyone.
